A Little Bit About Me
I have had a vivid imagination since I was a small child. My mom could tell some great stories about creating my own toys with nothing but a vacuum cleaner hose, hair ties, and sticks from the yard. I was mildly obsessed with MacGyver to tell the truth. If you would like to learn more about me, I have written a post with 15 random facts about me.
I live in Frederick, Maryland. I love it here. Its close enough to DC that I can visit but far enough that I don’t have to deal with the downsides of such a huge city. I share a busy home with my husband and son, whom I refer to as our lovable Tasmanian devil. He only stops to hug and cuddle with mommy and then he’s off like a tornado again. Welcome to my wonderful world!

About the Blog
These days, my usual outlet is scrapbooking and papercrafting, but I dabble in just about everything. I started scrapbook making in 2001, when I went home during a college break and discovered that our precious family photos were piled carelessly in boxes. Many of the photos were bent and stuck to each other. I was filled with sadness that my childhood memories were basically disintegrating. So I set on a mission to scrapbook all of our families photos. Scrapbooking has changed a lot since those first few pages, which makes me enjoy it even more.
In March, my family will be closing on a foreclosure with a lot of space and even more potential. In my home DIY section, I will be chronicling the transformation. My husband and I are very capable and experienced DIYers. My taste is somewhat modern with soft, natural touches included.
This is where I share recipes featuring my favorite comfort foods, desserts, and family favorites. I am an avid home canner, bread maker, and cook. Coming soon, I will be doing a series where I post recipes from in season fruits and vegetables in my garden. I am hoping that this experiment will lead to a decreased food budget, better diet, and eating 100% real food all year-long. Well, hubby will always have his american cheese slices so 98% is good too.
