(What’s This For?)
I am a first-time-mom from Michigan and I am trying to get back to my writing roots. I used to write in a number of journals, keep a few personal blogs, and I ran my high school newspaper. I even won “Rockin’ Writer” for my senior class mock elections. But since then I have let life get in the way and I sadly drifted away from writing. But that is about to change!
My goal for this blog is to share personal stories, recipes, craft projects, motherhood tips and struggles, and more. Not only am I doing it for myself, but I am doing it for my daughter to encourage her to explore her interests and live life with passion and purpose!
(General Tidbits/Family Overview)
I have lived in The Mitten for most of my life and love it here! (I could do without the potholes and snow in April, though).
I have been with my husband for over 7 years (married 2 1/2 years). We have an amazing 8-month-old daughter, Nora. We also have two ridiculous pugs, Lola and Ganon.
I am such a big crafter that I have a room dedicated to it! I quilt, embroider, crochet, and vinyl. I love to take on projects and try out new things. I prefer to freestyle my projects and sometimes that ends up with hilarious failures (which I’ll be sure to document here for your amusement).
I keep it real and sometimes that includes a few swear words (hence the blog name). I am so excited to get started and look forward to the future of Handle with Swear.
(yup, that acronym is the one you think it is)
