My Mom, Ornaments and Trimming the Tree

by jessicaturner on November 26, 2014

This post is part of a year-long sponsored post series with Hallmark. Ornaments have always been a big deal in my family. It started when I was born – one ornament from St. Nick each year so that when we moved to our own homes some day, we would have a beautiful collection to go […]


60% Off: The Non-Toy Gift of the Year for Kids Ages 3-16

by jessicaturner on November 25, 2014

I don’t know if it is that I have entered the nesting phase of pregnancy or just have a strong desire for less toys and less stuff, but this year especially, I am all about buying Christmas gifts that are experiences, stimulate creativity and just won’t be in at the bottom of the toy chest […]


Get Ready: Christmas Season on The Mom Creative

by jessicaturner on November 23, 2014

This weekend we have started to gather Christmas decorations, so it feels appropriate to write a quick post that says – get ready for Christmas here on The Mom Creative. This is one of my favorite times a year for so many reasons, one being that I get to share so many fun deals with […]

by jessicaturner on November 14, 2014

This post is sponsored by LeapTV and MomSelect. Matthew has been out of town for nearly two weeks with World Vision (he comes home today!). I tried to plan a few activities for the kids amidst this long separation because I knew it was going to be hard on all of us. One of the […]

by jessicaturner on November 11, 2014

This post is sponsored by Unilever. With two growing kids, it seems like someone is always complaining about being hungry or needing a snack in my house. While they might not realize it, I know how fortunate we are to have a stocked refrigerator, freezer and pantry. Their hunger is a far cry from the […]

Inside Our Closet Reading Nook

by jessicaturner on November 7, 2014

One of the first remodel projects we did in our home when we moved in two years ago was convert a walk-in closet above our garage into a reading room for our kids. I think I had aspirations to find a perfect rug to brighten the space more or add some Christmas lights, but after […]


Annual Halloween Costume Link-Up

by jessicaturner on November 3, 2014

Did your family have a great Halloween? We definitely did! Our day started out with a little rain, but nothing too bad. Adeline got to dress up for daycare, so I was able to snap a few morning pictures of her with my mom, who was visiting this week. I love this one because it […]

This is a friendly reminder that Monday will be The Mom Creative’s annual Halloween costume link-up. So get those blog posts written with your family’s Halloween photos and […]

by jessicaturner on October 30, 2014

If you have read this blog at all in the past two weeks or followed me on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, then you know that Matthew and I recently self-published a children’s booked called God Made Light. The talented illustrator created a set of activity sheets using art from the book, which we are pleased […]


On Taking It a Day at a Time

by jessicaturner on October 28, 2014

You might have noticed things haven’t been totally normal here on The Mom Creative. I missed Project Life Tuesday all together this month. Posting hasn’t been its usual consistency. I’ve just been a bit quiet. You see things are a bit hectic for our family right now. Here’s a snapshot: We launched God Made Light […]
