Welcome! My name is Jacquie.  In short I am an artist, maker, quilter, cook, baker, photographer, very occasional work-out-er, avoider of cleaning… and yes, of course- wife and mother, too. If you want the long version… well, keep reading.

My two little human mini-me’s are currently 5 and 3:  Lilly and Gracie, my sweet baby sister girls.  Ok, so they’re not always sweet, and I maybe can’t call them babies anymore, but they are definitely always sisters and that is a bond I am enjoying watching above all others.  There also exists a furry baby among us, our doodle named Denver. He’s a pain in the ass good dog.  Mostly. Sometimes… We’ve got another little girl due in November and we can’t wait to become a family of five! Baby Sally was born in November and we are absolutely loving being a family of 5!

I’ve realized through countless blogging endeavors that there are many aspects of this creative outlet that I have come to love. Obviously I aim to share my day to day with friends, family, and loved ones, many of which are far away. But less obviously, I actually enjoy the writing and the sharing. Through this process I find not only my own voice but a pull to tell our story first hand, for the sake of my girls, for the times in my life when I will need to look back and see how much we have truly lived and loved.  I want to show you what I do, how I do it, and why it gives me a fulfilling life. Maybe, just maybe, I can inspire you to get your hands dirty, start something creative, and try new things with your own families. Whether I accomplish these things through sharing a recipe, writing a story, or giving you all a how-to post about my most recent DIY attempts, I hope that you are able to take away something inspiring from the musings of my mind.

So there you have it. A crazy-haired three-year-old drama queen, a monster dog named Denver, a tiny seventeen-month-old sweetheart-girl and an ever-loving husband who somehow puts up with us all.
