Visit my blog at - it has 10 years of great information on how to raise your kids in a more down to earth and healthy way, with macrobiotic solutions for kids and baby issues that worked for me, maybe they will work for you!? My kids are now grown up and have turned into great young adults, we used them like guinea pigs with some of our ideas. Even though we are no longer macrobiotic that information never leaves you (or your kitchen).

The idea behind Nonchalantmom started in 2004 when we moved from Manhattan to Rhode Island, as a clothing designer for 25 years there wasn't much work for me in our small oceanside town. I made the commute freelancing for about a year but decided I wanted to be home when my kids returned from school. At that time I still did all my shopping with my favorite people in the city, and at that time the internet was not the open marketplace that it is now, so I wanted to offer my favorite hand-made small-batch designers to the world! What an exciting idea it was and I am thankful that we are still able to offer small labels to people who are interested in something unique, hand-made and created with love.

Fast forward 14 years and as we have weathered many trends but we are still interested in promoting the small guy! I have even moved on from making childrens clothing for the shop to making my own jewelry, pottery and home accessories. When people ask me what my store is all about - I just tell them it's everything I love in one shop, it's a great place to get gifts, be introduced to new things and explore!

If you are making something and you think it's pretty cool... email me the information and I would love to take a look!
