That’s pretty much the exact Google search that led me to the PTPA website over 2 years ago.
I am a busy mom of 5 active, noisy, zany kids with very little time on my hands and I needed an easier way to find out which products would be good for my family. PTPA gave me those answers and so much more. To say I am a fan of PTPA would be an understatement. I have been a regular reader of their blog, Facebook and Twitter for a very long time.
So who am I and why should you care? My name is Julia and I am the blogger behind Nugglemama’s Handful. I have a handful of kids who keep me pretty busy, but I manage to find time to blog, read, sew (although not often) and learn all I can about photography which is my new passion. My kids and husband are fully bilingual and I can hold a conversation in French if required.
We are a pretty geeky family. My Hubby is a systems analyst, I love gadgets and the kids are following in our footsteps. New technologies are some of our favourite things to explore, but that doesn’t keep us inside. You can also find us geocaching, road tripping and just hanging out at our local parks. In the winter we love a good snowball fight.
I love sharing my opinions, which is why I became a blogger, and have been known to stop people in stores, on the street and hassle my extended family when I find a product I love. My husband just shakes his head these days, but it wasn’t too long ago that he would walk away pretending not to know me. My kids have joined in my zanyness and are as likely as I am to share their feelings on everything from shoes to toys. Over the next two months I’ll have a chance as a PTPA brand ambassador to share my unique views on some PTPA winners, and tell you more about how you can get involved as a tester or as a brand!
I can’t wait to get started!
