My name is Emilee Roberts, and I’m the owner, writer, and creator of Pea of Sweetness. I’m happily married to my best friend, Joey, who is a 2x cancer survivor. I’m a full-time, homeschooling mom to our 3 special needs kids who amaze, inspire, and humble me every day. I’m a former dog-trainer and pet parent to a Cane Corso (Italian Mastiff) and a one-eyed kitten – both adopted/rescued. We also have 2 gerbils. I have a huge heart for animals, but we don’t have a huge home for them, so we are happy with our pets we have for now!
Pea of Sweetness was originally founded as a website for my personally made products like cloth diapers, nursing covers, nursing pads, wraps, etc. which was inspired by my own Sweet Pea, our little girl! Her nickname sweet pea quickly became “pea of sweetness” due to randomness on my part, and it stuck! When she was born I decided to embrace attachment parenting methods our first son hadn’t responded to. It was great instinct on my part because she was a totally different baby that thrived on the close bond. I also wanted to use cloth diapers with her after reading more about others’ experiences with cloth and seeing how CUTE cloth can be, so I started making some of my own. After learning more about the environmental impact of using cloth I started looking for more ways to “go green.” All within a few years: our oldest son was diagnosed with PDD-NOS (high functioning on the Autism Spectrum), I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, and my husband was diagnosed with cancer, which returned less than a year later! Not only was I thinking of our effects on the environment but how those outside effects were affecting our family! Later we would also discover our younger two children (and I) have Sensory Processing Disorder. In my pursuit to find products that are more eco-friendly to better protect our family and share this awareness with others I started blogging and expanded my website!
My crafting/sewing business on which Pea of Sweetness was founded took a side-line after my husband was diagnosed with cancer because I no longer had ample time at the sewing machine at which point Pea of Sweetness evolved into a full blog! Pea of Sweetness continues to evolve into a well-rounded website containing content such as: product reviews and giveaways, Faith, homeschooling, parenting, special needs, natural/eco-friendly living, and more! It also has a link to my shop for my personally made products, which are now being produced again! My heart is to share everyday life while tying in my entrepreneur spirit in sharing my business and craftiness as well as reviews and recommendations of other natural, eco-friendly businesses! Welcome to my personal journey to Proverbs 31! I hope you find inspiration, hope, truth, great ideas, and hopefully some great products and recommendations. Whatever I can do to help you on your journey please let me know!
