About BMB

Thank you so much for visiting BMB! My name is Tish Walker and it’s awesome to meet you.

I’m a 30-something blerd (black nerd) with 2 kids and a degree in music education that’s collecting dust. My husband is active duty military and my kids have sickle cell anemia; so I left the regular workforce for a while back in 2013… and I’m not so sure I want to go back.

Blerdy Momma started as a cooking blog (yeah, this momma loves food, y’all) back in 2013 just to give me something to do while sitting at home with my first baby boy. Then I realized that I wanted to talk about more than just food. So it evolved into a lifestyle blog. I talked about recipes, crafting, cosplay, and the conventions that we went to each year. You can still find most of that stuff over on my blog.

I’ve had a lot of time over the last 5-ish years to think about how I want to rejoin the professional world. I am a creative person at heart, and this is how the Blerdy Momma Boutique was born. I am a nerd. I love to sew. I can’t possibly be the only one. So here I am trying my hand at entrepreneurship.

You may have noticed that I don’t create designs inspired by some of the more popular fandoms around. That is intentional. I created BMB for the rest of us. Because wizards and time lords are cool and all, but everybody carries those already and I love video games more. You can find princess-themed fabric on a hundred different sites, but Sephiroth is bae over here. BMB is here to show love to other fandoms. (Btw… you can suggest new fandoms to inspire my future creations here.)

Let me know when you find something you like!
