dec. 4th - Dec 6th 2017


What's it all about?


We are all about spreading joy on Instagram amongst mamas + homemakers.

Every few months we host a campaign using the hashtag #iamajoyfulhomemaker to spread joy and connect with fellow mamas and homemakers. We're out to show you that there is JOY in the everyday mundane tasks of homemaking and that homemaking isn't old-fashioned or stuffy...there is plenty of room for fun!

and this season we are spreading joy at christmastime.


Join us on Instagram on December 4th - December 6th

for special daily prompts designed to bring some christmas cheer



Post a photo for each of the daily prompts and tag it with #iamajoyfulhomemaker. Then, click through hashtag and get to know everyone else who is spreading joy using the hashtag.

You can also sign up to get reminder emails leading up to the campaign and you'll get an email each day of the campaign, reminding you of the day's prompt. You will also be added to the Joyful Homemaker's Club email list where you get weekly #realtalk from Abby.



Each campaign has an amazing group of women who are helping to spread joy. Meet the ladies in charge of spreading joy for our very special christmas campaign.
