I'm excited to launch our fourth annual Go Ask Mom Made by Mom Gift Guide!
The guide features 11 local moms and one dad and the products they've created. You'll find food, books, crafty items and more. Over the next three weeks, you'll learn more about each of these talented folks. Be sure to check for the Made by Mom posts each weekday.
Some you may recognize from my regular features of local moms on Mondays. Others are new to the site. We'll wrap it all up the first week of December with a big contest where one lucky winner will win something from each of the moms and dad!
In the meantime, I hope you'll take a look at their websites and consider supporting some local moms as you shop for gifts for your friends and family. Be sure to check out our 2010 guide, 2011 guide and 2013 guide too.
