We’re bringing Home Ec Back!!

You probably know Babble.com — a really awesome community for women and moms dedicated to sharing great information.

Babble just launched a new blog that is dedicated to all things creative — Home Ec… And I am so excited to be writing for their blog because it helps me do the thing I like to do best. What’s that? What I love most about blogging is sharing projects and spotlighting other people. I can’t wait to start sharing all of the creativity that I see everyday from all of you.

I love that a new generation of creative people are coming up who enjoy creating projects to make their lives and homes more beautiful. And I think it’s so cool that our generation is taking our mom’s version of Home Ec and putting our own spin on it. We are bringing Home Ec back!! (We might even be putting the “sexy” in it — ha!)

Amy Anderson — Mod Podge Rocks
Natalie Holbrook – Nat the Fat Rat
Ashley Hackshaw – Lil Blue Boo
Amy Suardi – Frugal Mama
Marie LeBaron – Make and Takes
Susan Peterson — Freshly Picked
Jenny Komeda – Little Green Notebook

I’d love to have you check out Babble’s new Home Ec site and follow along. I am humbled to be part of such a talented group of bloggers over there. It’s going to be so fun!!

{You can follow along through the Home Ec Facebook page too!} 


  1. You can tell the Babble people that I stopped reading years ago but now will stop by every day. I'm so glad that they FINALLY realize that crafting is "cool." Congrats.

    I keep meaning to come on here and thank you for all the hard work you put into this fantastic blog. Every day it brightens up my morning and inspires me to make my home prettier. Thanks to your posts I have made a new friend (one of your previous featured bloggers) and I have discovered lots of wonderful new crafts and ideas ♥

    That is so awesome! I can't wait to see all the fun ideas. We didn't have home ec, so I'm learning it all now. Sure I'll learn lots more from you talented ladies!
