The Creative Mama » inspiring art, encouraging women

Author Archives: Erin

Erin has been a mama for six years, a blogger for five, and professional photographer for four. She hopes to be all of those things for at least another 50. She’s passionate about her family, her friends, bright colors and shooting jpeg (what?!). Erin is also the creative force behind the highly acclaimed Clean Color video editing tutorial. Those are the things that feed her soul but Erin says writing about them feels like the dessert. Erin makes her home and runs her business in Huntsville, Alabama.

Now raise your hand if you are that Mama. (crickets.) […]

mama always said…

My mama is a wise woman. And one of the things she’s always said is, “a good idea is always copied.” It’s not so much an indictment as it is just a statement of fact. And it’s so, so true. A good idea is always copied. So rather than get bent out of shape about […]

traveling with young scavengers.

  Let’s be real here: traveling with young kids is no picnic. Sure, there was a time in my life when I looked forward to long car and plane rides with my kiddos. In the car we’d play games and listen to all our favorite tunes while counting license plates along the way. And on […]

a day in my (productive/frazzled) life.

  Random question. Did you ever have to write your own epitaph in high school English class or was that just the sort of fun reserved for my own little twisted teenage place in the world? I’m not sure what I wrote back then but these days I have a hunch what might be on […]
