Meet Ludavia

I’m Ludavia, founder of The Mama Workshop. I’m happy you want to get to know me!


I love to laugh and smile (the most beautiful people are the one’s who smile. So, smile Mama. You’re beautiful. And if you and I get laugh lines, it just proves what a happy life we’ve enjoyed).

So,  I’m so happy that my husband loves to make me laugh and smile. He is so playful and continues to make me blush! I met him in 2005 and married him in 2007. He is definitely my best friend.


6 years later, our son entered our lives in 2013. He has brought joy to our house we never knew existed. I love being a mom. I was called to be one!

He is such a ball full of energy. I can hardly keep up with him. Thank God for coffee, coffee, and more coffee. He’s wants to know everything about everything (like how the light switch turns the light on – he wants to know what makes it do that besides flicking a switch), do everything himself (he now knows how to crack eggs in a pan and stir them with a spatula), and be the center of attention (he makes the silliest faces and goes around saying hi to all the strangers as we pass them in the aisles of the grocery store). And he loves to build things (train tracks and Lego buildings) and read books (we have a library shelf full of them)!

2015 we added a beautiful little girl to our family. She is one sweet and fiery little girl. She’s tough. And she is such a cuddle bug. I love it when she carries her favorite blankie around and holds her little baby doll giving it sweet kisses. But, don’t you dare try to take it away. You will see her fiery side. She loves tutus and sparkly shoes. And she loves to play in dirt and throw footballs.

Why The Mama Workshop

I have two kids that run around wild at times (heck, most of the time). Keeping their attention gets difficult. Setting up a craft hour (or should I say 20 minutes), is near impossible. So, I love coming up with crafts that are simple and keep my kiddos attention.

I don’t have enough time in my day to run to the craft store for an hour. So, I keep a small stash of craft essentials to have an impromptu craft session with my kids. You don’t want to know how much cardboard I have stacked in my garage. But, cardboard sure comes in handy for crafts.

My goal with The Mama Workshop is to share the kid crafts and activities I do with my kids, so you can do them with your kids too. I want them to be fun and simple. If they don’t turn out spectacular, at least we had fun making memories (because that is all that matters).

I hope you have so much fun! And I can’t wait to see pics of you doing the crafts with your kids!

Let’s Connect

I would love to connect more on Instagram. I post encouraging things on there everyday. I am also on Facebook, Twitter and love to pin nifty things on Pinterest.

Thanks for reading a little about me and I can’t wait to get to know you!
