Winners of Our Messy Baby Contest


Our featured mom is Crystal.  Crystal is the founder of Chrysanthemoms, and a mother of 3. She is a graphic designer, specializing in wedding invitations, baby announcements and photo greeting cards. I visited Crystal’s site, The Invitation Atelier, http://theinvitationatelier.com/. Crystal designs everything from wedding invitations to baby announcements.

She is also an avid blogger and loves to write. Chrysanthemoms (previously Two Moms In A Blog) is a blog written by moms for moms. Crystal states that the name: Chrysanthemoms, was chosen by one of our readers and is a play on “Chrys and the moms”. Why? Because she’s Chrys, and the founder of Chrysanthemoms!
Chyrsanthemoms has three sister sites: Moms in Business, written by eBay Powerseller and WAHM, Suzanne – brings you advice on business: from getting started and building traffic, to finding balance between the business woman and the mother. In The Kitchen, with Watkins Rep, Eleisia – is an astounding resource for recipes, kitchen tips, cooking with your children and more! And last but not least, our talent Birthday Parties & Themes writer, Annette Yen, brings you theme ideas, games, activites, menu plans and more for a affordable, creative, memorable birthday celebration for your child of any age.
If you’re looking for invitations visit The Invitation Atelier. Crystal has a large selection, and she’s still adding designs. Her blogs are filled with interesting and diverse posts as well.

Mamita’s Creations

Our featured mom is Vivian Nelson Melle. Vivian is a third generation Mexican-Danish-American. Vivian states that she takes great pride in her cultures, and loves crafting. Vivian makes crafts and sells them so she can be a stay-at-home mom. Vivian’s work is generational. She learned crafting and a love of herbs at a young age because her mother was a stay-at-home mom who taught her the skills she learned from her mother. Vivian’s grandmother learned from her mother. Vivian is currently passing these skills on to her daughter.

All of Vivian’s work can be found at www.viviannelsonmelle.com. Her favorite hobby is redoing t- shirts. Vivian takes old t-shirts that have lived a good life, but needs a redo and gives them a complete make-over. Or, you take a brand new shirt and make it a one-of-a-kind creation.

One of my favorite items from Vivian is the bracelets made from old clothing. Vivian stated these bracelets are made from clothes that were headed for the thrift shop. While most of our clothes are given away, some are just too meaningful to give up. I found a way to reuse old clothes into new fashions. Is this not crafty? You must also check out the crocheted pursues. They are adorable. These convenient little purses are great when you need only a few items and are not looking to lug your purse around. They are large enough to hold a wallet, cell phone and a few lipsticks, but are small enough to hang effortlessly around your shoulder.
Vivian also has a blog, Mamita Staying Home, http://www.mamitasstayinghome.blogspot.com/. Stop by and take a look at Vivian’s post. This lady has great and crafty recipes that you may want to try!
