Ghastly Girl


We are so happy that you are here at the home of mom life for the weird moms!

You may have noticed that things have changed a little bit around here. Don’t get too nervous! We’ll still have all of the great chronic illness and mental health content that you’ve come to trust our site for. There’s no way I could stop baking or (attempting) crafting, so we’ll still have tons of that around here too! I’m definitely still a special needs mom, and I (unfortunately) still deal with a chronic illness almost every day!

One thing that you won’t find around here anymore is a fake side to me. For two years now I’ve followed “blogging gurus” who preached that you couldn’t do this and have a successful blog, or you couldn’t do that and have a successful blog. I have to say that I am so over that. I’m so over not being true to who I am but rather trying to follow some formula for success.

In the long run, I’ve come to believe that it is far more important ( and WAY more fun!) to share my truth from my experience rather than trying to appeal to a certain audience or to try to seem like a viable option for this brand or that. It may not be as “marketable” according to the blogging pros, but it’s going to be a lot more real and a lot more me. That said, It’s going to get a lot weirder around here! I’ll be sharing much more of my life as a paranormal investigator, much more of my personal research on the odd and macabre, and much more of my spirituality as a witch.

If you are a reader who is uncomfortable with these changes I completely understand and want to thank you for your time with us! I know that the “weird mom tribe” isn’t something that everyone is comfortable with, and I completely respect that. I wish all of my readers past, present, and future all the best in the new year.

The Nerdy Cooking Mamas group board is all about recipes. Of course, the nerdier the better but we accept any recipes! We have a 1:1 rule ( which means if you pin one of your own to the board you must pin one from the board as well). We also request that there is a 15 day period between posting the same content to avoid being spammy.

If you would like to join this board follow Ghastly Girl on Pinterest and message us there or here for a group board add.



While our Nerdy Mamas board started out as a craft and D.I.Y. board it evolved into much more! We will ALWAYS accept crafting pins there but now accept any pins that resonate with #momlife…including parenting pins, kids activities, mom’s day off, and much more. Same 1:1 and post timing rules apply here as all other boards.

If you would like to join this board follow Ghastly Girl on Pinterest and message us there or here for a group board add.




This board is all about homeschool!! We love finding awesome new activities and resources for kids. As a homeschool parent, we’re pretty sure you do too! As always, there is a 1:1 share rule, and 15 days between repeating a post, please.
