The Modern Hive

Mom to six and a graphic designer, The Modern Hive is my place to share things I create or find helpful, beautiful, inspiring, & fun. I am a little bit country and a little bit city. I like making, thrifting, repurposing, DIY and trying to find ways to creatively manage my little hive of buzzing activity.

Modern Dreidel Mobile

This Dreidel mobile idea from Creative Jewish Mom is so fun. First of all, it's modern, and I am a sucker or any modern design. Second, what a cool and easy craft for Hanukkah!

The Flood

I couldn’t find that ridiculous flier. The one that was accompanied by about 15 other compadres inside my kids’ backpacks at the end of the twins’ kindergarten and the youngest’s first preschool year.

Baby Meets City

Join me as I chronicle tales of mommyhood in the urban jungle of NYC... I'll be sharing thoughts on my new role and the challenges of balancing bambina, work and whatever semblance of a life I have left. I'm on a quest to find baby/stroller-friendly restaurants & shops, fab websites and, if successful, be a resource for other new city moms out there. Wish me luck!

The Plant

Piano teacher with one room to rent, Steinway B to share for practicing, Sunset District. It couldn't have been more perfect if I had written out my ideal scenario and tacked it to the conservatory's "Housing to Share" rental notice board.

If you put the two most important parts of me together – motherhood and writing – and you stir in a little resolution about personal fulfillment and mental stability, you get this blog. Like most mothers out there, I absolutely adore my children and, like most mothers out there, I live dangerously close to that bend in the road, the one you’re not supposed to go around. The writing you find here keeps me away from that bend. It gives me just a bit more road. It slows life down long enough for me to remember the details. It helps me to focus on the good stuff and handle the bad stuff with more grace and humour. And there’s always room in my life for more grace and humour.
