My name is Christy. I am a Christian 30-something happily married mother of two. Our sweet little boys are a handfull, and we couldn't be happier. We live in the midwestern United States in a small house, on a small lot. Our home may be small, but our hearts are full. Life is good!
I have a day job as a technical writer. It's not exciting, but it is a good job and I can't complain. Someday (God willing) I'd love to be a stay-at-home Mom and homeschool. I love the idea of helping shape my children's education from the very beginning. For now, that's only a dream... but someday, maybe it will be more.
In my spare time (what little I have) I love to be crafty. As they say, I'm a "jack of all trades - a master of none". I quilt, crochet and embroider. I make the occasional plush toy, decorate cakes and bake pies. I want to learn how to make soap and candles. I make my own greeting cards when I have time, and I love to draw/sketch.
I am intrigued by frugality and the concept of "getting by". I shop at thrift stores and garage sales. I enjoy canning and gardening. I enjoy reading about prparedness, though I couldn't be classified as a prepper.
I collect cookbooks and children's books... pretty much any books I might find at a bargain.
I'm addicted to British television shows and old movies. I love music from many genres, but my favorites are from the 30s/40s/50s.
I am an avid talk radio listener and a conservative political junkie.
I write about… family, marriage, motherhood, frugal living, sewing/quilting/making, recipes, good books, the faith which grounds me… and all the other reasons my life is so very Wicked Happy!
