I have worked for ThriftyFun since October 2007. I moderate the requests that TF users submit. I learn new things everyday from everyone's questions and answers. I love my job and am so privileged to work with such wonderful friends and family!

I am the mother of three fabulous kids! I work hard to teach them to care about the environment and their community. They are very caring and love to make things for people. We are lucky to share our house with 6 wonderful rescued pets...3 dogs (Paige, Gidget, and Nina) and 3 cats (Oolong, Cupcake and Zero).

I have a degree in Graphic Design, but enjoy many other forms of art too! For me, art can brighten any room so I love to use my art to liven up our house!

I was not raised in a frugal household, however I am finding that being more frugal with my own family is helping me achieve some of the future plans I have for my children.

One of my newest frugal ideas has been in response to our eating out too much. I have decided to replace the "eating out for fun" idea with a weekly special meal selected by one of my kids from a cookbook. When it's their turn to choose a meal they will also get to help prepare it. While saving some money it will also give us a chance spend time together and try new things!

I love the rain and I wait in joyful anticipation for Honeycrisp apple season. I hate wearing shoes and I tend to wear flip flops in inappropriate weather!

Nature Weaving - child holding his creation

Junco Babies

Junco BabiesMy friends have a section of their yard that they leave unmowed in the spring and summer. This allows birds to nest there and pollinators to enjoy the flowers. They recently were able to enjoy their little "contribution to the animals" when a Junco chose it as their nesting spot. Look at this tiny, hungry babies!


Non-Pleated Face Mask - women's over the ear mask made with pink fabric with cherry motif

Non-Pleated Face Mask With Filter PocketThe most recent orders from our governor include wearing masks when in public so I decided to make a set of masks for my family. I found a free pattern online for a non-pleated mask with filter pocket.


Worm Play Mat - play mat with purple Play-Doh worm

Worm Play MatHere is a fun play mat that I created. Kids can make worms for it out of Play-Doh, pipe cleaners, or even paper. If you laminate it they can also draw worms and tunnels onto the mat with a dry erase marker. Enjoy!


Remaking 'The Scream''- montage of the painting and the recreation

Remaking 'The Scream''One of the projects assigned in my daughter's art class was to recreate a famous painting with items found at home. My son loves the painting "The Scream" by Edvard Munch and volunteered to help her in recreating it. They used clothing, blankets, and strips of cardboard to create the background. My son posed as the figure in the painting. I think it turned out pretty amazing!
