Okay, so here is the thing.
I love this little blog of mine. It was my baby before my body would make real ones, and for that I will be forever grateful.

Since having our first daughter last year (heck, even before then), I have had a really hard time balancing blog, crafting, and motherhood. And, just as it started to seem like maybe I could get on top of my game-- We found out I was pregnant again, which brought a whole new level of "whoa, I am not a super human" syndrome into my life.

Baby girl number two will be arriving sometime in the next 6 weeks (please be sooner!), and it finally came to me what needs to happen with this blog!

I need help!
In the form of contributors.
I know, lots of blogs are doing it these days, but really? I think contributors would be an awesome way to keep Oops! I Craft My Pants alive, while allowing me to still post when my heart desires.

I'll be honest, this is totally not going to be a paid gig or anything (I'm poor!...Plus, this blog is more about making connections and friends--Not much of a moola bringer-inner.)...But, I can promise you that you'll meet some fun people and gain some extra exposure for your own blog (if you have one!)

Right now, I'm thinking I want contributors for the following:
-Kid Crafts
-30 Minute (or less) Crafts

BUT! If you have another idea, please please please pitch it to me! Do you have awesome date ideas? Let me know! Party ideas? Send 'em my way! Is your garden amazing and you think you have great tips? We could use your knowledge!
Really, any (clean) topic is game, just email me.

I know this is super short notice, but I would like to have my contributors start next month (if possible), so please email me as soon as possible. Be sure to include a little bit about yourself, your strengths, and a blog link if you have one (if you don't, that's totally okay!...Still email me, if you're interested.)

I'm so excited to hear from you!

Thanks so much for reading, you guys!


  1. Oh im interested! Ill email u in the AM :) {ps. Love the new look on the blog}

  2. Erika, I've written you back in my head about 15 times, but never manage to sit at the computer long enough to actually write it! I'm sooooo sorry! I would love to contribute too. I'll email you soon, I PROMISE.

    And I love the new look too.

    Oh, and I TOTALLY get the "can't find a good balance" feeling. Especially this fall its the blog that's been neglected. Although that's probably better than neglecting the kids! I think "motherhood" in Greek means "she who always feels like she's failing at SOMETHING". :)

  3. Oh, and for what It's worth you always seem like you are doing a fabulous job. Somehow we all need to shift our way of measuring how good of a mothering job we are doing, huh? I tend to.think if I get frustrated or if the littlest throws a major tantrums that I'm somehow failing. But I think I should be looking somewhere else. Like do I generally have a house my family enjoys? Are we all doing well at apologizing when we all inevitably screw up? Am I trying to love their dad well? When I screw up at that do I apologize quickly? I don't really know what I'm talking about, but I'm feeling like I need to focus more on how I try to.grow and fix things.that go.wrong rather than focussing on the fact that none of us are perfect. Does that make any sense? At least its something I need to learn...

    Ramble officially done. :)
