About Us

The Happy Home Life is a hub for moms who are looking to make their home life a little happier. With amazing recipes, fun crafts, household tips, and parenting advice, you’ll have the happiest little home ever. We know how hard it can be to find time to do things that make your day-to-day more enjoyable – cooking great meals from scratch instead of relying on takeout or processed foods; making time for self-reflection and relaxation; finding ways to simplify your workload in order to spend quality time with family and friends. Our goal is not only to provide you with the practical tools that will help you build up skills in these areas but also to give you encouragement when needed along the way!

Donella – Glue Sticks and Gumdrops

Donella is the owner and creative director at Glue Sticks & Gumdrops. She’s a work-at-home homeschooling mom to one hilarious little boy named Ben, and a proud wife of a deputy. When she’s not at her computer, she’s chauffeuring her kid around town, snapping photos, reading, or enjoying the great outdoors.

She started blogging about 6 years ago as an outlet for creativity and in the hopes that other moms would find it useful. Donella stumbled onto some topics that resonated with her readers more than others (like low-carb recipes, kids crafts, and household tips), so those are areas where she has focused most of her energy lately.
