About Me

So, what am I doing here?

Weeellll… for starters, I really don’t know. I am still a newbie to the whole blogging world, but what I do know is that I love cooking, creating, designing, and being an all-around busybody, both in mind and body. If you are into those things too, well then I am doing something right. WELCOME!!

What you should expect from this blog…

First and foremost, being creative on every front doesn’t even begin to scratch the surface of who I am. I’ll follow directions the first time. After that, I chart my own course. I love experimenting with food, fabric, yarn, home decor, etc. I tend to be a hoarder when it comes to creative supplies. This gal ain’t ashamed of digging through my neighbor’s trash to pick up a vintage headboard or old door. BEEN THERE. DONE THAT. ANNOYED THE MAN OF THE HOUSE! You know you’ve been there. 

All the pertinents…

I’m Jennifer, and I’m a native Texan with two teens who are so creative and unique. I love them to pieces. My crafting partner in crime is my BFF of 25+ years, Amy. We encourage each other and give each other a listening ear, hugs, and advice. My primary mode of operation is teaching middle school, although I have 17 years of retail management experience. In my spare time (ha ha), I hope to share all my craftiness, writings, recipes, and more, with y’all. Yes, I say Y’ALL!

Creative Writing and Inspirations…

By no means am I professional writer or advice giver. Writing creatively runs in my family, so I have a need to write thoughts, feelings, randomness down at times. These posts are most definitely for entertainment purposes only. However, if you find value in anything I post, then I am super happy and excited for you!! Check out my most popular writing post: Ransom Note – Day 5

All the rest…

Who doesn’t enjoy a good go-to recipe for a quick and easy meal? Like I mentioned before, I love experimenting with food. I’ll share my successes with you so that you can enjoy the same experience. My recent fave is Sloppy Joes Done Right. As much as my man loves ground beef, I try to find new and interesting ways to serve it. Seriously, he would eat hamburgers every day if I wasn’t a “variety is the spice of life” kinda gal. 

So now you know a bit about me; jump in, and swim around my blog. If you are looking for crafty things, there is a summer full of ideas coming your way.  ENJOY!!!
