Our mission is to celebrate creative moms.
Join us and together let's create a community of moms who seek creativity and want to support and inspire each other!
Larissa and Lina met in 2003 in graduate school at Parson’s School of Design in New York City. We bonded over late nights at the 24-hour diner which provided the nubby crayons, paper tablecloths and patient wait staff which enabled so many of our projects. We were both particularly interested in the intersection of design, storytelling and social commentary and were forever coming up with quirky, personal projects (with varying success) that addressed topics we felt passionate about. We were creative and loving it.
10 years and 3 kids later, some things had changed and some things hadn't. We still yearned to be creatively challenged but found that motherhood had brought on a whole new set of frustrations and challenges. The two hour lunches to brainstorm a project had turned into 15 minute google chats between kids' naps. We both realized that being a mom and balancing any sort of personal development is just darn hard, and we wanted to create a community of moms who could inspire and nurture each other.
We created mommikin.com to give moms a place to vent the frustrations and celebrate the successes of their creative endeavors. To commiserate with those who also struggle with staying inspired despite the rigors of motherhood. To support moms to successfully grow a creative business or get back into the creative work after a maternity hiatus. To help moms nurture creativity in the home and in their children.
Mommikin supports and celebrates creative moms. Together, we're creating a strong community of moms who seek creativity in our lives and have the desire to support and inspire each other!
