Helping busy mompreneurs keep their sanity

Pinterest, how do I love thee…


Being a mom is hard these days. Being a mom who works outside the home while trying to build a home based business is even harder. Then you actually need to FEED your children too. Geez the work never ends! When you have to deal with food allergies and sensitivities it gets even harder. I’m used to gluten-free cooking. My husband has a sensitivity to gluten so we’ve avoided it for years.  However, we now have to avoid: soy, potato, corn, cauliflower and dairy. Just about everything found in gluten-free conveniences. So now pretty much everything needs to be made from scratch which is a blessing in disguise because now we can avoid hidden food additives too.

Enter Pinterest….


This has been such a lifesaver!! I can’t imagine what my life would be like without Pinterest.

Some of my favorite recipes are:

  • 100 Calorie (score!) Strawberry Oatmeal Bars
  • Banana Oatmeal Pancakes
  • Broccoli Quinoa Mac & Cheese
  • Slow Cooker Taco Filling
  • Quinoa and Brown Rice Tortillas

I was able to use it to help build my business as well.

I never attended an in-home jewelry bar before I joined Origami Owl. Search “jewelry bar display” and voila! I have a bunch of ideas.


And here’s what I came up with when I first started…

It’s so much bigger now that I’ve built up my stock. 🙂

I don’t like people feeling like they are being invited to just come buy some jewelry. Now we need “party themes” so people can actually feel like they are coming together to have fun with their friends. I have found ideas for Halloween themed parties, hot cocoa bar theme and many others.

You can find information for just about any aspect of your business: branding, blogging, how to increase presence and so on. Give it a try and let me know what interesting stuff you find.
