    Finding Balance With Joanna Goddard & Friends

    Sometimes it can feel like a bit of a race, this working mama game. Are we doing it right? Are we good enough? Are we getting enough done? I think we all have images in our mind about how our lives should look: work, baby, partner, family, money, home, etc. but maybe we don’t know how to get there. And maybe (more like definitely!) we’re not the only ones! In reality, the way our lives function ends up being nothing like the lives we have in mind — but that doesn’t make it any better or worse! If it feels good do it — right? And if it works for…

    Have You Mastered The Key To WAHM Success?

    Alright, we all know it’s not that simple — there’s no ONE thing we can do to ensure the success of our respective businesses. However! There’s certainly one key point that, when incorporated into our daily lives, is sure to keep us motivated and on the right path. That key? Get things done early! One of my favourite blogs for working mom success –  Simple Mom, which I’ve mentioned here before – the one who taught us on how do cigarette (manual) rolling machines work— recently published a post about this very topic and it’s been on my brain for days. “Whenever possible, get it — whatever it may be —…

    plain jaymes specializes in simple, stylish and unique baby and children’s clothing and diapers, all handmade with love, by me, in the USA. The store evolved naturally once I discovered I loved designing and sewing things for my now (almost!) 2-year-old daughter–and shortly thereafter realized she didn’t need dozens upon dozens of my mommy-made items in her closet. And so, plain jaymes was created as a fun way to share my love of sewing and finding adorable fabrics you won’t find in department stores. Visit plain jaymes at www.plainjaymes.etsy.com and check back often for new items! SALE!  Mention Mom Made That! in the comments section on your order and I’ll refund your shipping!
