About me

Location Pacific NW/Puget Sound, United States
Introduction I am a richly blessed, Christian, homeschooling mom of 8, surprised to realize I'm in my 50s. My passions revolve around my family, and our home, which continues to be our ultimate family DIY project. I cook, bake with home-milled flour, sew, try to garden, and love architecture, design, and color. Seeing that family demands will never lessen, I'm determined to give art & creativity a bigger place in my life again. It means as a 'jack of all trades and master of none,' I need to learn to pare down the clutter in my life, pick an interest or two, and dig in!
Interests Architecture/Home Design, Art, Whole-grain Bread Baking, Homeschooling, Nutrition, Pregnancy and Babies, Sewing, Quilting, Reading, My kids' activities, Everything Kitchen-related!
Favorite Movies White Christmas, It's Complicated (GREAT garden-bakery-kitchen-design/architecture--who could want more?-I could want to see LESS of Alec Baldwin), Fireproof, The Express, The Housesitter, Inside Out
Favorite Music Country, Christian Praise, Classical..especially with cello!
Favorite Books Mostly cookbooks! Also any books- fiction or non-that include a foodie-chef-or some aspect of cooking/baking, and any that include people involved in interior design- architecture-or gardening.
