I have 3 biological children, two girls and one boy, and 3 bonus children 2 girls and 1 boy and 1 granddaughter. My kids range in age from 21-2.

We love sharing laughs and making lasting memories together. Baking in the kitchen and doing fun crafts and DIY projects are where you can find us on rainy days.

My Blogging Journey

When I first started blogging back in 2012 I was known as,  Frugal in Fort Wayne and Beyond, I was a coupon and deal blogger. I started out by being a VA for A Proverbs Wife. I then became passionate about couponing, and I worked under her wing where she took me under her wing and really taught me so much.

With the knowledge I had, I started my own blog. I have transformed over the years, on what I was writing about. From doing coupons and deals to reviews. I now focus mainly on food and crafting.

In January 2018, I quit my job and went into blogging full time. This was the best career choice, I am now my own boss and I get to cook and craft for a living. Before I took the plunge I bartended and work as a hairstylist in a salon.

I currently cover

  • Recipes
  • DIY
  • Cricut Crafts
  • and more

In July of 2019 I started my second blog, Color Me Crafty. This blog is totally my love child and is made up of all sorts of projects and crafts. Make sure to check it out too.

I think all children are tough to raise. Well, if you want to raise them to be productive members of society, that is. I suppose it would be pretty easy if we didn't care about that part! :D I popped in to say thank you for the IP and air fryer information you've shared. I'm starting that journey and so far it's working well. I made hot buttered rum, decided I like hot rum better without the butter; however, realizing drinks can be made with the IP was an exciting discovery! Now I'm scouring the web to find good eats and I'm happy to have found your blog. <>, but I have a day job. Speaking of, time to rise and shine comes soon - g'night and thank you, again. :)
