Mommy Brain Mixer’s Moving In!

Welcome, friends! Before we get to the mommy-brain mixer this week, I just wanted to make sure you all know the news. Cassie, the creator of the mixer, needs you to know…..

Hello, ladies! If you missed it last week, here’s the Mixer’s latest big news:Dear sweet mommas of the Mommy-Brain Mixer,

I have such mixed feelings tonight as I write this! I have decided to step down from hosting the Mommy-Brain Mixer, as I have realized within the last couple of weeks that blogging and all the extras that come with it are keeping me from being the best mommy to my sweet littles and wife to my husband.

Being a mom is my passion, and my eyes have been opened to the fact that I’ve been slacking in the last couple of months. Not only has this affected my precious family, but it has affected me – I’ve been unhappy and depressed knowing that my blog life has been so alive, yet my home life has been suffering so!

Therefore, I’ve decided to give up quite a few “extras” of blogging for now and go back to the root that I love so much – writing. Unfortunately, this means giving up one of my other babies – the Mommy-Brain Mixer!

The great news is – the Mommy-Brain Mixer will continue to thrive!

Sweet, wonderful Jelli from Jellibean Journals (that’s me!) has agreed to take over the Mixer and give it the TLC it deserves! Beginning on January 3, 2013, the Mommy-Brain Mixer will take place at Jellibean Journals (the Mixer will take December 27th off for Christmas week). More wonderful news: Cassie from Live.Laugh.L0ve will be staying on as co-host!

Are you scheduled as a future co-host? No worries! You may have missed the email we just sent stating that Jelli is keeping all co-hosts exactly where you are! She will be contacting you as your date draws closer!

The Mommy-Brain Mixer was created with great care and a wild passion for motherhood, and will continue in the same way! I’ll definitely be seeing you there when I’m able, sweet ladies!

    Hey Jelli… This is my first time linking-up to the Mommy Brain Mixer and the first time visiting your blog! Newest follower on bloglovin’ right here ;) Anywho, I have only been blogging for a month, so I get way too excited over link-ups and blog hops, as I love the chance of meeting new peeps… so just wanted to say THANKS for the opportunity! :)

      Of course! I’m happy to have you visiting this week, Amber. Looking forward to reading your mommy posts and getting to know you better. If you’re looking for a great hop, I’d highly recommend visiting livelaughrowe ‘s blog hop, that happens once a month. It’s a GREAT networking tool! The next one she has going on is January 2oth.

      Thanks, Morgan! I’m excited to get started with it in a couple of weeks. Thanks so much for following and taking the time to say hello!

    Hi Jelli! It is fabulous you are taking over the Mommy Brain Mixer for Cassie. I look forward to link up in the future. I have been so busy lately with crafting and the holidays…gheez. I didn’t see a GFC to follow and I would love to so how would you like me to follow. I will go follow twitter and facebook for now. Have a great weekend.

    • Jelli says

      Amy, I’m excited to have you. I totally understand the business this time of year. This week and next I don’t have much blogging planned, as I’d rather be spending Christmas “in the moment” with my family rather than stressing over how many quality posts I’ve got scheduled. Since I’m on WordPress, I gave GFC the heave-ho, but I appreciate you following via Twitter & FB. That’s great! Have a wonderful Christmas!
