A Bowl Full of Lemons Creative Team

Say hello to ABFOL creative team. I have hand picked each of these bloggers, because they represent ABFOL well & because of the unique talents they bring to our community. Each week, along with my own posts, my team will share their beautiful ideas that will teach you, inspire you, and encourage you to become organized in different areas of your life. Please give a warm welcome to our inspiring A Bowl Full of Lemons team. I encourage you to follow them, via their social media sites (listed below), so you can stay up to date with their happenings.

Toni Hammersley profile


My name is Toni & I’m the creator of A Bowl Full of Lemons. I began blogging back in 2006 and started ABFOL in November of 2011. My purpose for ABFOL was to document my home keeping successes & failures for my children and anyone else who would read. I’m a wife, mother, Registered Nurse, Lifestyle Photographer and Blogger. I love what I do & I wouldn’t trade it for any other job in the world.

Morganize with Me

Morgan is the energetic and motivated, but also realistic girl behind the blog Morganize with me.  Her mission is to share tried and true techniques that she hopes will encourage her readers and clients as they focus on their health and homes. She believes in simplifying, prioritizing and measuring progress one day at a time. When she is not blogging, organizing, or exercising, she can be found cooking a simple dinner or spending time with her sweet family. Her life is full and fun and somewhat messy too. A motto she holds near and dear to her heart, is that less IS more. Unless of course, she has an opportunity for another Chai Tea Latte or she is shopping at Target!


Morgan’s Goals for ABFOL: I hope to bring encouragement, realistic techniques, and simple solutions to the ABFOL community. I want my ideas surrounding health and home management to inspire and motivate. Intentional living takes a daily focus and I plan to be that girl who gets in your corner and helps you really go for it! I’ll bring a little sass and humor too because I believe life should be full of fun!

Pretty Organized

Casey lives in a sweet, tiny, little house in Delaware with her husband and two adorable rescue dogs. As a long time fan of Toni’s phenomenal organizing skills, she is absolutely THRILLED to be a contributor for A Bowl Full Of Lemons! She used to be a total mess, but after she let go of the idea of “perfect”, she found freedom.  Melissa stopped trying to fit the mold, learned how to make organization work with her natural habits, and has been obsessed with creative organizing solutions ever since! When she’s not drooling over the latest amazing project features over here, you can find her happily tinkering away on her own blog, Pretty Organized, where she shares her addiction to aesthetics, small space storage ideas, DIY projects, and all things aqua!


Casey’s Goals for ABFOL: She is SO excited to join the ABFOL community! She’s hoping that she can help others who may not be naturally organized with finding creative solution and systems that work for them. She is planning on sharing lots of tips for those who have small spaces or even have trouble finding solutions that work with their personalities. She can’t wait to share tips and tricks that save time and simplify!

melissa 400 px

Melissa is a 40-something year old resident of the Inland Northwest who loves God, her husband and their four kids, dark chocolate, strong coffee, reading, baking, organizing, frugal DIY, numbers, and creating. She mostly prefers vintage over new, paper over electronic, and being alone over a crowd. Give her a free afternoon, and she can probably be found shopping at the thrift store or watching a period drama. Melissa is the owner and designer of A Time For Everything, a handmade business which has grown into a successful cottage industry that supports her family.


Melissa’s goals for ABFOL: I am passionate about seeing people get out and stay out of debt, and I love helping others who are on that journey. My goal as the Budgeting contributor is to provide practical tips that are useful to a wide spectrum of readers. I hope that the posts I contribute here at ABFOL are informative and motivating for all who desire to spend wisely and live within their means!

Graceful Order


Maria Gonzalez is the talented blogger behind Graceful Order, where she blogs about all things HOME. Maria lives in sunny Florida with her husband and two boys. She’s passionate about the home and is always looking for ways to organize and create systems that will save her time. She believes that a space can be as practical as it is beautiful. She seeks a life of balance, not perfection. A life with a little bit of order, and a whole lot of grace! Oh! And coffee, of course, that too.

Maria’s goals for ABFOL: On Graceful Order, Maria shares ideas on organizing, decorating, cleaning and entertaining. Her goal is to help others get organized by sharing her time-saving systems. She also shares decorating tips that she hopes will encourage her readers to create welcoming spaces that reflect them. Maria is so excited to be part of the ABFOL community!

    I am trying to improve my life and that of my children as well on every level I can. Lately I’m looking into essential oils and aromatherapy benefits. I’m finding myself somewhat lost due to lack of time to really research. I was hoping for some assistance and or perhaps a blog specifically about essential oils, aromatherapy and or holistic treatments for well being.

    Also I love this website! I’m very impressed and have told many about it.

    Thank you!
