A start...


This is the start of my attempt to share my creative wanderings in our often cluttered home, our classic Vermont community, and our amazingly intricately designed natural world.

To frame this blog and share a little about myself. I come from a long line of frugally creative people who have creatively used what we have to make what we need whenever possible. This means we save almost everything... My chosen profession is community recreation where I worked for over 10 years before deciding to have children. Currently I am investing my creative energies into recreating with them. There is so much to explore around us. My husband, Jeff and I have been happily married for 12 years and purposefully strive to live a relatively simple life.

My passions? My God, my husband, my two kids, cooking, random creation, college students, seeing people grow, wandering.

Favorite Quotes? "He is no fool who gives what He cannot keep to gain what he cannot lose." Jim Elliot. "Not all who wander are lost." A Life is Good t-shirt.

Why the dragonfly? As a camp counselor I was captivated by the beauty of the dragonfly in mid-late summer. Dragonflies were in abundance and I grew to appreciate the intricacy in God's creativity as well as His great love for us. If God has the capacity to create over 5,500 delicate and beautiful species of dragonflies and damselflies to fulfill a purpose in their ecosystems then He must also have a purpose and beauty for my life.


I'd love to hear about your adventures!
