Monday Muse Gets Crafty

I was searching the web for creative Halloween Countdown Calendar ideas when I came across a site I knew would be great for today’s Monday Muse. Crafty Chicks is a collection of women (mostly Mamas, from what I can tell) who have some of the most wonderful ideas for all things crafty. Currently up on…

Monday Muse Master

Today’s Monday Muse is a bit different – not because she doesn’t do all the things the rest of us Mama artists struggle to do each day (laundry, parenting, dishes, laundry, creative time!, vacuuming…) but because she’s managed to become insanely successful at her craft and beat the odds in so many ways.  She taught…

MIA Monday Muse

I’m skipping Monday Muse this week – my children’s theatre company is still in its infancy, and started its first fall semester run on classes this afternoon. I was playing the role of multi-tasking maven today to the hilt as I put the finishing touches on the script, got Miss A’s homeschool lesson plans together…

Monday Muse Mamas

I was so happy when I found this site, after seeing it advertised over at SmartBitches. It’s like an entire site devoted to the Monday Muse concept! Here, from their About page: Being a mom and a writer is hard, and the only other people who know just how hard are other Mama Writers. We…

Monday Muse Meets MishMish!

Can I have an amen for the alliteration? Today’s Monday Muse is Susie Libell, a mom of two chaotic little people (as she prefers to call her punks/heathens/chilluns/epsilons/offspring/etc – please-insert-your-moniker-of-choice here). Susie writes the delightful blog Inner Toddler, in whose words I recognize a kindred spirit: her posts create a catch-all journal of sorts that…

Who Isn’t Happy…

…To receive an award? It’s always nice to win an award, and even nicer when it’s unexpected. Like this morning, when I discovered one of my Monday Muses, artist Jennifer DesAutels, had decided to bestow upon me (and some other wonderful women) the Bella Sinclair Art Inspiration award. Originally created by Ces (another MM!) for…

It’s not Monday, but this Muse Inspires Everyday

If it bothers you… forget that it’s Tuesday, and  pretend it’s Monday while reading today’s Monday Muse. I first learned of photographer Miss Booshay (aka Donna Boucher) via her guest posts on the Pioneer Woman’s website. I feel a special kinship to this Muse, based on the simple fact that she has two red-headed daughters…

Multi-Tasking Monday Muse x3

I consider myself a multi-tasking maven…I seem to have always thrived on having half a million things going on at once…but some multi-tasking mamas just put me to shame (like my idol: The Pioneer Woman).  I want to know…do these women sleep? As summer comes to a close, I am starting to put together a…
