Harriet Fancott is the Editor and Social Media Manager for Vancouver Mom. She has over 20 years experience in the arts, tech and mom-based blogging arenas. She lives in East Vancouver with her husband and son where they enjoy exploring all that Vancouver has to offer from festivals and events to playgrounds and beaches to sushi and ice cream (although not together).
Karen loves tea, books, and geekery like me. What else is there to say?
I follow Karen’ Blog, but am unfamiliar with the others. I follow several that aren’t on the list. I’m going to look for the others displayed. Good luck everyone. – Ruth Lyons Mazur
Praying for Michaela to win not just because she deserves the prize of a weekend getaway. But because I truly believe her gift of writing is basically STELLAR!!!! This is a blog that can be read like a book from start to finish. A love story and life story.
Yes I am praying for Michaela Evanow to win too. Her blog has changed me life and I will never be the same. Some of the most powerful writing ever!
You have to read Joelle Walker’s “Kid Hangover”, if you are a. O, it will bring back memories that will both make howl with laughter, or reduce you to tears. She has a real talent to combine humor and motherly love. And she’s got the exasperated with dazed dad/husband covered as well. Sorry Dave, nothing personal. Read her, and decide for yourself, but she’s got my vote.
Codi you are an amazing Mom, daughter , and blogger.
I enjoy reading your posts, and seeing another side od you grow and develop. Looking forward to see what the future holds for you. You go girl.
She is fantastic! Her blog is full of wonderful ideas, economic and easy to follow. I highly recommend it.
I have been following Kristyl Clark, Valley Mom for over a year now. She is super energetic and informative and I am grateful for mom’s out there to keep other mom’s in the loop. Great job to all of these ladies.
Voted for Karen!
I love Karen’s blog and have been following her for sometime. She has great ideas, reviews, spotlights, and much more!
Michaela Evanow you have inspired me so deeply. We bless you to win for your beautiful Flo. You’ve encouraged me to be a better Mom. I love you even though I dont know you xxx love Tanya (South Africa)
Krista is an incredible writer, and amazing momma! One Beautiful Life is a beautifully honest blog 🙂
Lyndsay’s ability to write from the heart makes me experience several different emotions from reading her blog. She can be funny, emotional, thankful and sad all in one short sentence: the markings of an excellent and gifted writer. It takes a lot of guts to share with the world her chemo experiences.
Michaela’s blog is beautiful. She is such gifted writer and everyone should read through it!
For Michaela, a mom that knows no boundaries of love and commitment and for precious Flo, who’s short life has been such a blessing and an inspiration!
Thanks for the opportunity to vote!
Karen brings everyday insights, projects, the human factor, and products to doll aficionados. She brings ‘doll play’ back to life for those of us considered to old, the wrong gender, etc. to be interested in dolls and their or rather our stories. She lats imagination have a forum with tea, sophistication and a quirky smile.
The cancer survivor and her hairless doll than her, the twenty-something guy starting his doll collection thank her, as well as the stay-at-home-mom and admin secretary; both doll collectors.
Without Karen, none of us would have an outlet or a common craziness ^_^!
I love the gritty honesty in her blogs about the hard things that happen.
lucky Darwin!!!! and everyone who has wizard socks too!
Thank you for sharing your words through such a hard time
Krista’s blogs are very inspiring. There is always HOPE in them.
So sorry about your wee Marigold…bless you for your strength and grace throughout her life!
xx no words, just inspiration.
she’s the best:)
She is just amazing, with all she went through with Flo!!!
She is fantastic! A little bit of sweet, a little bit if spice, and a whole lot of love. I love her style and how open she is about everything she writes.
Michaela shared her journey with little Florence Marigold so beautifully I felt a part of the journey even though I never met her. I feel as though I know a part of her heart and my life is richer for it. Thank you Michaela.
Tara is awesome!
Micheala is an awesome writer and has touched lives far and wide with faith in God.
Michaela,your story is so inspiring. I love reading all your blogs. You’re amazing writer and a mother. Please keep writing it helps us motivated to become a good mother. I knew and I cared Florence so much that when I checked my emails from work I was so sad of the bad news but deep in my heart she’s now an angel watching over you and your family in heaven. I love her and she will always be a part of my life and I will never forget her. I will be planting marigold every year in honour for her. I hope you will win, you deserved it.- Jullie O.
My thoughts are with you and your family and sweet Florence. Thank you for sharing her with us.
For Florence Marigold.
Krista expresses herself so very well. I always look forward to reading her blogs and as she walks through life.
Way to go Nina!!!

Karen Owen is awesome!
Been reading for years.
She is certainly a fighter and a survivor.
I’m forever rooting for her and her family!
I’m inspired by Lyndsay Sung’s blog.
I admire Lyndsay’s courage to be honest, vulnerable and funny all at the same time, with the challenges & joys of her life.
Very interesting read
Such a lovely positive blogger!
Lyndsay is an authentic, generous writer, designer/baker. My vote goes to her. She’s already won in my book.
This mom is very talented and shares great information on 18 inch dolls and imaginative play. I don’t remember her missing a day on her blog. Karen is real upbeat and for a busy mom she seems to always find time for her followers.
I hope Karen Owen wins I just love reading her blogs they just make my day!
Love Karen’s blog! Good luck!
Love peace and marigolds♡♡
an independent woman, wife, mother, daughter, lover of life, friend, confidant, supporter, sister, bff,
Inspiring and I have enjoyed the privlage of watching her practise what she preeches with her own lovely boys.
I have followed Michaelas blog for about three years. Her journey has changed my life. Her blog is one of just two blogs I’ve read long term and regularly & it is amazing. Her gift with words is exceptional.
Michaela deserves this honour more than any woman I know. She has been to hell and back and still find beauty and peace in the life around here. She is amazing
Such strength, bless x
Michaela is an incredible writer and human who has the capacity to talk about grief and hope in the messy middle of life.
I had already planted Marigolds in my garden and now I think of your daughter, now with our God.
She has been an inspiration in my life, and many others!!!
Always informative and enjoyable.
I have read her work and am very impressed
Karen’s blog never fails to cheer me up and make me smile. I love her tea portion of the blog and with two girl grandchildren it is nice to see her crafts and doll features as well. She does a great job with her photography which is the essence of a great blog for her Tea series. She deserves to be the top voted person.
s familiar with the other blogs but will explore them.I love Karen’s blog and share her love of tea and book
you are amazing Connie!
I love Connie’s reviews and professionalism. She is in trend but has her own angle on everything, which I appreciate, instead of canned and bought posts.
go Bethany and Kate!
You’re writing is flawless and beautiful Michaela. Never stop.❤️
I hope you are recognized for the beautiful words you put down. My condolences on your recent loss.
Is always an enjoyable read from a mom who keeps it real and not afraid to show us her honest reality. Showing us the hilarious truth of her busy mommy life.
Mic, best blogger or not your supporters and the love that surrounds you contains balloons and stars and fireworks – you have offered thousands of women a look at your heart and that, my dear, makes you the winner….,
You deserve this. You’re brilliant and talented. <3
So heartfelt and such an intimate journey to take with so many people…
Tremendous and creative!!! Job well done!!!!
Michaela Evanow’s writing has deeply and profoundly touched me and changed my life. I have been inspired to be a better mother, to persevere in tough times and to enjoy the small moments of this life. I am in awe of her huge heart and love that is evident all over her blog.
Hope Karen wins
You are the best Connie!!
So proud of you Codi. We hope you win. Mom and Dad ♡♡♡♡♡
