UPDATE: January 2015

I have returned to teaching full-time and just don't have the time to devote to this wonderful website as I did when I was staying home with my children. In addition to teaching and raising my own children, I just can't seem to find the extra time in our busy schedule. I remember thinking when my kids were babies that I would have so much more time when they were older--that is SO not the case! I have even less time! =)

I truly love supporting products that are made by the Moms around the world. It takes a lot fo work to make a home made item and even more work when you are raising little ones!

I am still taking occastional custom orders, but no longer wholesale. If you are interested in purchasing this site or business, you may contact me at: stefanie@madebymoms.net

Hi there! Warmer weather is just around the corner! We're featuring many new items for spring! In addition, please visit our booth at Irish Days in Murphys, Saturday the 20th! We'll be in front of Alchemy Restaurant.

In the meantime, go outside! Enjoy a walk around the neighborhood and play "I-Spy" with your kids! This game not only works on many academic skills (colors, shapes, sight words, letter and number recognition, etc) but is fun for everyone as well!

Baby Cadence has arrived! Life around here is quite the juggling act with 3 children under 3! =)
We've added a few new moms to the site, so check 'em out! I really like the reversible diaper tote and changing pad. I have one myself and receive compliments on it all the time. I also have a matching nursing cover. I've folded that thing, rolled it up, and basically abused the heck out of it and it is still as good as new!
Christmas is coming up (less than 3 months away). Our site has lots of great gifts!
On that note, since Fall is here, check out the fall table toppers. There are some really cute designs that would make a warm addition to your table.
Happy Fall!

July 2009

It's been awhile since I've had time to update the blog. I ended the school year by switching schools (had to go back to teaching full time with the way this economy is going), so I've had to pack up and move my classroom. In addition, we are expecting our third child (a baby girl) in September! =)
Needless to say, my family and I have been really busy...

We've also made a change to how we run things at Made By Moms. Due to the economy, we decided to make this a non-profit entity. We realize how hard it is these days to keep the family ship sailing. From now on, we are solely a place for moms to advertise their products without having to pay for it. We know that a lot of time and effort goes in to creating; you deserve to keep every penny.

December 3, 2008 Happy Holidays!

Sleigh bells ring...are you listening? I just love this time of year! I've been singing holiday tunes since before Thanksgiving (much to the annoyance of my husband). ;)
I am trying to get decorations up, but with two little boys at my feet, it is a bit difficult, as you other mommies can imagine. We've had a great first year and are looking forward to all that 2009 will bring! All of us at Made By Moms wish you a wonderful holiday season!

~Stef (and the rest of the Made By Moms Team)

How do you spend the holidays? Just a few responses...

"We go to the local christmas tree farm and have the kids pick out our tree. Then DH and I cut it down. Once we have it decorated, we all sit with just the tree lights on and sip hot cocoa" ~Cindy  

"Getting the decorations out of the attic. There's just something magical about opening the boxes and re-discovering what's in there." Dayna    

"Baking cookies of course!" Jennifer

Wow! Can you believe that the holidays are right around the corner! We have been so busy! With taking the boys to the pumpkin patch, hay rides, sewing costumes, and every day activities, I am one tired mommy! I rarely drink coffee and I have found myself at the local coffee place more than usual these days. =)

We've added a few new vendors this month. What a blessing this site has been. I am so happy to be helping moms get their products out there. If you have comments or suggestions, please email me at stefanie@madebymoms.net

July 13, 2008

Wow! I have received quite the response since changing the look. Thank you for all of your comments! I am glad it went over so well. This entire process has been a lot of work (way more than I anticipated), but it is fun, too. Like I mentioned previously, I am learning as I go. I truly appreciate your patience!

July 11, 2008

Hi everyone! I've just about finished changing over the site to the new look! Let me know what you think. Drop me a note at stefanie@madebymoms.net.

June 25, 2008

Wow! It has been awhile since I have had time to post! We've been on vacation and just busy with life in general. The site is being redone, so you may notice small changes throughout. We've added some new products as well! Hope you all are enjoying your summer...

Wow! What a busy week this has been. I've been taking care of a sick family this week while trying to get the shopping cart function going on the site. I am one tired mommy....

Take care,

Today was a milestone for two reasons. The first one, that my oldest turned TWO today (where does the time go?), and the second being that I finally have the website up and running! I am sure there are some kinks to be worked out, but that all comes with the business, right? I hope you are enjoying the site. I can't wait until we are fully operational!

Hello and welcome to the Made By Moms Blog! I am so excited about this website! This has been a dream of mine for awhile now, and it is finally coming true! I am working on putting products online and am looking for those crafty moms who'd like to join me. Please contact me if you're interested! It will be a great and exciting adventure!
Also, please be patient with the site. I work on it when the boys are napping (the only opportunity I have for quiet time!)

Take care!smile
