Hello! I’m Camye. I’m a small town Iowa girl who runs Quad City Moms Blog, a site designed to support, encourage, and connect moms in this adventure called motherhood. (You are not alone!) I have transitioned from early childhood teacher to stay-at-home mom to work-at-home mom. I have an artsy, creative husband and three rambunctious children- especially the 1-year-old! Balancing family, life, and blogosphere is a daily challenge. I love making to-do lists and checking things off, searching for the world’s best chocolate-chip cookie recipe, and tackling DIY projects. When the kids are finally in bed, you’ll find me curled up on the couch watching prime time with a computer on my lap.


  1. Hi, I’ve had LONG hair forever, I have a 10 month old & a 2 year old that keep me very busy! I’ve been wanting a change for a while but I definitely haven’t had the time. The makeovers today were gorgeous by the way. I would be forever thankful for this and sooooo nervous but ready for the change if I was chosen!

  2. Hello, I am Tiffany and I would like you to change anything about me because I am a bit nervous about changing my appearance to drastically by myself LOL! I am a mother of a beautiful 7 year old girl who seems to be worried about her appearance and body already 🙁 , So I would like to show her that its good to feel comfortable i your own skin no matter what changes happen to our appearance.

  3. What I would love to change is my hair!! I have had the same style since high school, almost 20 years ago.. I have 3 great kids that I live for and just don’t take time for my self like I should…

  4. I want a mommy make over just want to feel pretty I don’t ever wear makeup and dress up nice and would love a day that I can feel good about myself

  5. I would loved to get picked for this! I haven’t been to a salon in about 5 years, and I’d love to change my all around look.

  6. My name is Tia Rondeau and I am a first time mommy to a sweet, sweet little 7-week old boy. I have never been very seasoned in doing my hair or makeup, but I would be absolutely ecstatic if I were to win a makeover.

  7. I am a homeschooling mother of three who would love a mommy makeover. I have naturally curly hair and would love to find a hairstyle that doesn’t scream, “Homeschool Mom!”

  8. Heather Moore definitely deserves this!! She’s right when she says she’s had long hair FOREVER!! Time for a change, she’s beautiful no matter what, but this would be perfect for her!!! ❤️?

  9. Hi I’m Erin, I’m a mother of 2 little girls (4mos & 3 yrs). I would love to change up my style. I feel like most days when I’m not in my scrubs I tend to throw my hair up & put on a t-shirt & jeans. A mommy make over would be perfect!

  10. I would love a makeover!! I’m a mommy of three and go to school full time. I never seem to have the time to fix myself up for my husband. I want to feel pretty and want to change my style of clothes! I wear the same thing all the time…

  11. It would be SO FUN to have someone pick a bold, dark hair color as I’m very predictable and don’t take risks! Pampering would be so fun as I’m home with our five little blessings!

  12. I would love a makeover! I’ve recently moved from home childcare provider to preschool teacher and my look needs updated. Ready to cut and color, and update my clothes and look more professional!

  13. Theres a million things id change! I have very low confidence and self esteem,ive been struggling with this for years now. a mommy makeover would do wonders for me! im a stay at home mom of 3,and i also babysitting 3 additional children,so this would be amazing! I dont get to get out much or have anytime for myself so this would be a treat for me. ♡

  14. Theres a million things id change. I have no confidence and low self esteem, which is something ive been struggling with for a while a stay at home mom of 3 and i babysit 3 additional i dont have much time for myself,so this would be an awesome opportunity for me to relax and get some me time thats long overdue♡

  15. I am a mother of 2 little girls (3 yr old & 4 mos). I would love the change up my style & hair. I feel like when I’m not in my scrubs I throw my hair in a pony tail & put on jeans & a t-shirt. I would be honored to be choose for a mommy make over!

  16. I would extremely grateful for a makeover with a 3 and 1 year old mom always comes last. I was just thinking about how I need to donate hair and I think this would be a great opportunity.

  17. I am married with a junior and senior in high school and I work full-time. This year I am finally putting my foot down and taking much needed me time. Trying to discover myself and make changes to feel more positive about myself. I am very hair and make up handicapped, and would love some help.

  18. I am a preschool teacher and former in home childcare provider, looking for a new look! I would love to try a cut and color and figure out how to look more professional!

  19. What a beautiful project this is! I’m currently working two full time jobs, raising a little one, going through endless months of paperwork and classds to be able to grow our family through foster care/adoption, volunteering, supporting my husband’s military career which means he’s often gone and I’m running life solo, surviving a move to a new area where we don’t know anyone…oh man I don’t even remember how to take time to make myself look good anymore 😮 Winning something like this would be amazing!

  20. There’s so many things I’d change, since becoming a mommy kids obviously always come first. I never financially want to do anything for myself because I feel that money could be used on the kids. I haven’t had my hair done in over 3 years, that’s the thing I want to change most. I would be so grateful to win this if I were to, I need a change to make myself feel pretty again. Please choose me for the makeover, I’d love to look lose this “looked like I been used to clean up the floor look!” I don’t have many friends so I may not achieve the highest votes, but thanks so much for giving me the opportunity at a chance to win.

  21. I would like a change since I have had the same hairstyle since I got pregnant with her and the only difference I have had is getting highlights that didn’t come out the way I had hoped for, which was the first time I ever gotten highlights. I am not only a full time student working towards my associate’s degree which I will have in December, a mom to a beautiful daughter, but also a military veteran. I have worked so hard for my family that I always put them first no matter what with dropping what I’m doing to take care of them in their needs. I have had self-esteem issues for a long time since middle school (over 15 years) and would love to be able to finally love the way I look and feel.

  22. I’m a mother of two boys (ages 2 and 1) and I have another baby on the way. I rarely have the time to figure out what look works best for me and I would love a makeover and some helpful tips on how to spice up my look without a lot of maintenance. A full day just to myself before our third baby comes sounds so wonderful! I really hope I win this contest and get the chance to meet Paula as well!

  23. My name is Kassandra mckown and I would love to change my wardrobe. I buy my daughter whatever she wants spend my money on her needs and never seem to take time for me or spend money on me. I always joke I’ll pay $20 for her shoes but when I need new work shoes or jeans I’ll contemplate for months before I decide not to buy anything. Just to know where to start would be amazing!
