Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

the oh bother christmas card 2014 @ohbotherblog If you'll recall from last year, Christmas Eve is almost the bigger holiday for me and my family, so I like to think of today as Christmas Eve Eve.

Here's this year's Christmas card--and yes, it made it out by Christmas, thanks to Minted. Get this--they even do free envelope addressing for you. I only took advantage of a few of those because I'm hand-delivering most of these puppies (due to the fact that I only had about 6 stamps and the odds of me getting to the store to buy more aren't looking good), but that's seriously an awesome service, right?

I'm actually so in love with this card, I may make it our "thing" from now on. It was easy enough to do (even for me) AND I've been told that it has won the Christmas card contest in several houses (woot!).

I feel like it's a pretty accurate snapshot of what's going on in our lives. I can't even imagine what our bubbles will say next year.

Happy Holidays, ya'll.
