Hey!  I'm so glad you decided to visit my site and find out what its all about!

I am a 46-year-old mother of an 8 and 9-year old, step-mother of a 23-year-old, wife to an energetic risk-taker and a citizen of the world of work-at-home Moms!
Since childhood, I've been into various aspects of the arts. I enjoy choreographing dances, being in singing groups, sketching, writing & creating music, video production and graphic design.   Also, since childhood, I've been very intentional about stretching a dollar - always prioritizing my spending and looking for a good bargain. Interestingly, this characteristic tends to set the tone for a lot of what happens in my world.
That said, my life offers something new to talk about and share everyday and that's what I hope to do here!

When I decided I wanted to start a blog, I had so many ideas about what I wanted to write about.  My life is made up of more than just one thing and I have multiple sides to me.  I felt like I had too much to share to try to contain it within just one topic.  So I figured I could write about...well, everything!  Okay, maybe not everything.  But some of the things that I'm excited about on a daily basis. It's not that what I do is so different from most people, but, by nature I am extremely frugal (some say cheap) and I tend to approach everything with a cost efficiency mindset.  This leads me to get really creative!  I'm all about Do-It-Yourself, especially because...you can!  There's so much that you can do yourself and have fun doing it while saving money. So, here are the main topics I'll be talking about:


Much of my writing under this topic will revolve around my 8 and 9 year-old in particular since they're home with me.  All day. Everyday.  Blank stare. But, I'll also be sharing resources and activities that are the springboards for the fun we have together, playing, learning and loving and just trying to keep our home organized and sane!

Health & Beauty

You'll find lots of posts on money-saving hair care and styling ideas, skin care and general health and beauty along with how to stay on top of it all while you're chasing little kids around the house.  To be honest, I'm still working on that second part but I've got some tips and ideas that we can try together!

DIY & Crafts

Plus, I'll share all of my favorite and off-the-cuff DIY projects and crafts from crochet to wall art.

Self Improvement

And, because I'm always evolving and looking for ways to be a better, more God-centered, Christ-like version of myself, I have lots of great resources and thoughts to share from my ever winding spiritual journey. My hope is that you will always find something to relate to, something new you can use and anything at all that will inspire you to live life creatively!
