One Tough Mother Contributor Announcement – Meet the Team

Some of you may remember about a month ago that I announced that One Tough Mother would be adding monthly blog contributors beginning in January.  I’ve spent the past few weeks reviewing the applications of some amazing bloggers, and I was finally able to put together what I believe is a stellar team who will inspire you with their creativity!  Today it’s time for you to meet the team!!

Allyson Zea is the author and everything else of Domestic Superhero. She’s an East Coast girl who grew up in Michigan, and then ventured out to the West Coast for college.  While attending Berkeley she studied Psychology, and still loves learning about how people’s brains work!  While in college she developed a huge passion for teaching kids, and worked as a nanny. Through nannying, she learned how to cook, do crafts, have patience, and all the little things that have brought her to where she is now.  Now, with a family of her own, she loves to develop and try new recipes and foods. She loves crafting and DIYing in her spare time. Between working full-time, family, and blogging, she barely has time for anything else.  She is a lover of crusty bread, cheese, great music, and good times. Her blog is full of easy drool worthy recipes, fun crafts, and big DIY projects!

    Woo-hoo! We’re super excited to join the team and can’t wait for this new year to begin! (Well…maybe we don’t want to rush the next couple of weeks too quickly.) Thanks Kirsten for pulling this together–it’s going to be a great time!
