About Me

Shalom from Seattle!  So glad that you’ve found your way to my blog.  I’m a full-time mom and part-time lawyer who’s talked about being the Jewish Martha since I was in college. Unlike Martha, however, my house is in a constant state of cluttered chaos because I’d rather work on fun projects (and amass oodles of craft supplies) than clean, and I don’t have an army of assistants to help. Every time I come up with a new craft idea or find some great thing at the store and get really excited, my husband says to me “Why don’t you blog about it?”

So, here I am, one crafty (and I’d like to think stylish) mamaleh who loves to create. Whether I am designing a delicate piece of jewelry, whipping up a batch of my famous frosted sugar cookies, rubber stamping a birthday card or doing a toddler’s art project, I feel the most energized when I am exercising my creative muscles. My other passion is all things Jewish. After minoring in Judaic studies at Brandeis and having my Bat Mitzvah at the age of 20, I love all the Jewish traditions and always find myself disappointed that I can’t get the latest Purim décor at Pottery Barn. But, maybe I can just do it myself!

Made by Mamaleh is where the crafty and the Jewish combine to give you fresh, chic, creative ideas from a Jewish perspective. I hope to share crafts, recipes, shopping finds, kid activities, you name it. All with a Jew-ish twist. But don’t click away just because you’re not an MOT (Member of the Tribe, ie. Jewish), since not everything I do is going to be Jew-ish, and I guarantee you’ll find plenty of ideas for birthdays, Valentine’s Day, etc., from a down-to-earth, crafty mamaleh. Thanks for joining me on this adventure!
