Welcome to Mommy Muddling!

Mommy Muddling, that’s me and this lovely little place, is all about sharing and moving through life’s messy things (that muck and mire stuff). Some of the messiest things in my life are things like personal struggles with mental health issues, faith, motherhood, being a wife, and then the artsy type stuff like journaling, paper crafting, painting, mixed media, and sewing. All of that can be messy in one way or another, sometimes the end result is something very pretty and other times it’s just a beautiful ole’ mess. Not every mess can be beautiful though, there are some rather not pretty things that I may share here, and yeah, they’re just ugly messes. But ugly things need to be looked at and worked through too, so there’s that.

I may may go off-road on occasion and share pretty things like books I love, home decor, and the occasional, “oh my gosh I can’t help myself it’s so pretty” inspired fashion or beauty related post. All of these things make up the fabric of my life, so ultimately it’s my life I bring to you with the hope that you can relate or learn from it, maybe even be inspired. After all, it can’t all be about me! Plus, I think I have a thing or two I can learn from you, so I hope you’ll share here, too.

Oh, and I should tell you, my name is Amy. I’m in my 40’s. I live in Kansas City. I have 5 crazy kiddos (blended family) and one seriously wonderful husband. We have a Cavalier King Charles puppy, Wilco (named after the band). I love live music – really love it. I’m a huge fan of nature and God’s creations, particularly the ocean, mountains, birds and flowers! It’s my dream to live near the ocean or mountains some day. For now, I’m land-locked in Kansas!
