I’m Nicole and thanks for visiting The Creative Mom Collective!

Here you’ll find a community of moms who value their creative contribution to the world in addition to their babies. Full time-work-from-an-office mom? Work-at-home mom? Stay-at-home mom? Newborn, toddlers, or teenagers? Doesn’t matter. If you have a desire to create, you belong here!
The Creative Mom Collective publishes posts on:
Creativity begets creativity. So whether you’re passionate about something specific or you’re just wanting to find an outlet for more creativity in your daily life, you can find a variety of inspirational resources here. You’ll find posts ranging from new meals to try to the Lady Boss series that features moms who run their own creative businesses.
Tips and Tricks on Maximizing Productivity
Managing your time well is not always a skill associated with creative types. But when you’re a mom, you don’t have a choice. You’ll find posts that will help you get focused, get busy, and even get through the daily stuff that slows you down more quickly so you have time to do the work that is meaningful to you.
Motherhood Support and Resources
I’m all about reaching out and getting help when I need it and then passing it on to someone else. Being a parent is hard enough as it is, so you’ll find lots of helpful items, stories, lessons learned, and other resources that make motherhood a little easier.
How The Creative Mom Collective Started
My life was forever changed in the best way possible when my son was born in August of 2016. I never knew I could love so deeply! So after he was born I decided that it was time for me to leave my steady, fun, but ultimately unfulfilling day job so that I could spend more time with my baby and also pursue my dream of being a professional writer.
However, I learned very quickly that following my dreams while also being a mom turned out to be a lot harder than I thought it would be! Being a parent is challenging enough, but finding time to work felt nearly impossible at first.
I knew I couldn’t be the only mom out there struggling to structure my day around my child AND my work, so that’s why I started The Creative Mom Collective.
I’m so glad that you’re here and I can’t wait to see how you thrive!
I’m a Denver native living in fabulous Nashville, Tennessee! I have a master’s degree in English Writing and I worked in Higher Education for six years. Right now I am a freelance writer/blogger who is also (forever) working on a novel.
JL is my husband/bff. He’s a web programmer by day and a writer by night. I love that we are both very creative. Hewson is our pride and joy! He’s the sweetest kid you’ll ever meet and our good little companion. We also have a rescue dog named Kazmo.
I love writing, being creative, traveling and exploring new places and foods, and spending time with friends and family.
