Welcome to A Magical Mess! Our goal here is to make life a little more magical. When everything around you appears to be a mess, let’s try to find the magic!
We are two sisters who were raised separately but have now come together to try to make a positive impact no matter how small. Although it’s a challenge, we both work hard to try to find the bright side in all situations.
Join us for all sorts of fun and adventures, but mainly magical recipes, fun crafts, and ways to practice self-care.
About A Magical Mess
Get to know each of us a little better below!
Owner and founder of A Magical Mess. I am a forty-year-old woman who lives in the Chicagoland area with my husband and three dogs. Mike and I were married on June 25, 2011, on the Pirate Ship at the Treasure Island casino in Las Vegas. When I am not working feverishly on my blogs, you can find me reading, hiking, playing with our fur babies, or just hanging with friends and family.
Running this blog has been quite an experience for me. When I started, I knew nothing about blogging. This has been the most humbling and educational journey for me. I continue to eagerly and actively learn about all forms of social media.
What I am working with: iPhone 6s for photos/video, Canon Rebel T3i for food photography and hi-res images, Olympus Tough for underwater/boating pictures, Cowboystudio lighting kit, and Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for editing.
Went from young and stupid to relatively young and wise. Getting pregnant at 16 saved my life. Along the way, I learned all about just how messy life is capable of becoming. It’s through the mess that you find the truest of friends. My kids–ages 17 and 14, and rescue cat all live about 10 minutes from Jen. We love watching movies, playing all sorts of games–from Fortnite, Minecraft, and Mario Kart 8, to Monopoly and Hedbanz. We’ve got our passports in hand and are ready to travel the globe.
