Hi, I’m Holley. I’m a native of Missouri, so my southern might show occasionally, even though now I live in Minnesota with my husband and our two ‘babies,’ a cat and aGrow dog. By day, I work as a house cleaner, and hopefully by night, blogger. Ok, basics done!
Now, we’ve all heard ‘honesty is the best policy,’ right?
In vein with trying to live life honestly, I will honestly tell you, this is my first ever blog. Why am I here? Well, I have my fingers in several (figurative) pies…
I’ve always loved writing. Seriously, since I was like, 10 years old. It’s been an under-developed hobby for years. Along with that, some people think I’m funny. I do believe laughter is the best medicine, and I hope I can give y’all a laugh or two.
I love cooking, baking, trying new recipes (Pinterest, anyone?) and, occasionally, setting off the smoke alarm. Occasionally.
Crafting has been a huge part of my life. I love any DIY project, be it scrapbooking, art, furniture rehab, or interior design and decorating on a budget. Growing up, I spent hours in the sewing room with my mom, watching, and trying, but I never really picked up her skill. Once I found myself 500 miles away though, I was forced to use all my latent knowledge and teach myself, and it worked! Now my mom and I share a passion for sewing, quilting, and doing things the old fashioned way.
I’m also trying to become better at photography. Maybe it’s because I refuse to post ugly food pictures on Instagram, or because on Etsy, and all over the world wide web, a photo really does speak a thousand words.
Put all those together, throw in some random kicks and giggles, and I think I’ll be able to make a fun blog for the world to see. Hopefully I can bring something tasty, something crafty, or at the very least, a smile, into somebody’s day. So here is to, the beginning!
