ABOUT MANGLED SPACES

A Safe Place for Messy People

Mangled Spaces started as a conversation about mangled and messy things, real-life things. Tasha and Mel built Mangled Spaces to resource informed parenting, grow intentional self-care, and foster integrated community. If you are imperfect and living a messy life in a mangled space, you are welcome here.
