Hi! I’m Ginger fromÂ Gingerly MadeÂ where I write about crafting, food, and family. I’m really excited to be competing here on So You Think You’re Crafty! I love to challenge myself and this will definitely be a challenge.
My blog actually started as a ‘green’ momma blog. Hubs and I have big plans to move out of the suburbs and into the country. In the meantime we do a lot of gardening and trying live sustainably. All that sustainable, do-it-yourselfness naturally developed into the craft blog it is now because I’m constantly creating something. I’ve always loved being involved in one (or two or three) projects at a time. I sort-a forgot that about myself for awhile when I was working in the corporate world. And then I had children and became a stay-at-home mom. Crafting gives me and my daughter things to do together. I love crafting with her and for her.
In fact, crafting for my girls is what inspired me to open myÂ shop. I am very passionate about being a breastfeeding mom. But I know I would not have been able to nurse my girls as effectively without nursing covers. Modesty was a big issue for me and I certainly didn’t want to retreat to a bathroom or changing room every time my babies were hungry. After I figured out how to make my own, I started making them for my shop. Nursing your children is a gift that not all mothers get, so I wanted to help anyone who wanted to nurse and just needed that little extra help.
I also create other odds and ends for mommas and their kids depending on my crafty moods. You can see what I’ve been up to lately by clickingÂ here.
