Hey there! If you’ve landed on this page and are reading this writing you’ve either stumbled here by accident (yay, hi!) or were prompted by curiosity to find out more about who I am. I’m Jacquie. Hello! I author The Sweeter Side of Mommyhood blog; a space I created from a desire to meet and build a community of women seeking creativity in motherhood. Mom of 12 (seven feathered, one furry and four human) babies, I juggle a passion for photography, art and hands on making with trying to be a great wife to my hockey loving husband and an honest role model to our three wild and crazy little girls. Whether it’s chickens or quilting or digging deep about the struggles and joys of being a parent, I strive to establish an inspirational online community where women and mothers can come to feel empowered to make, to learn and to grow. Be sure to follow along on instagram @sweetersidemom where I document the nitty gritty and share what my life at home is like from the inside out.
Affiliate link disclosure: for the ease and convenience of click button shopping, I use Amazon affiliate links in my posts. I trust Amazon fulfillment services and stand behind their customer service 100%. Providing these links for my readers eliminates many questions and helps people to source the actual products and materials I use in real life. Every click and purchase you make through these affiliate links provides my family with a tiny bit of supplemental income- something we use to better the lives of our children and family. It humbles me deeply to be able to provide things like gymnastics AND soccer for the girls and have less stress surrounding everyday life things like shopping for birthday or Christmas presents and making the car payment each month (woo hoo!). Thank you from the bottom of my heart for keeping me motivated to live the life I hope for all of you.
