About This Blog

Living a frugal and practical life, I've learned to make do and use what I have. Wife, mother, grandmother to 10 (age 2-11 and counting!), home maker, crafter; and writing about it all.  I provide child care for some of my grand kids 4 days a week and work part time. It is a busy and full life!   I believe life should be about making memories with loved ones!

My PhotoThank you for stopping by Family Home and Life.  I love being a grandmother! I cherish the time I spend with my family, and try to always use that time to bring unity, love and respect for one another, and have lots and lots of fun. I look for teaching moments at all times, pointing my little ones toward the love of God. This requires of course, my being the example first and foremost; not always so easy to do.

I love to make things myself, re-use what I can, save money, time and effort. Of course it all needs to be practical! I'm not a fussy person. We all need to be healthier and let's be safe too; yes I might write about all that. I have Fibromyalgia and a lot of food allergies, you may hear about that from time to time here.
I love to feature other bloggers as well as my own works so I hope you find something you can use; something that makes you think; and I hope you at least smile if not laugh out loud when you visit!
  • The posts that I put under the label ‘Short and Shorter Stories’ are embellished. Some slightly, and others almost completely. They are stories that have a root of truth that I chose to write using artistic license and letting my creatively just go for it. I’ll let you be the judge and decide for yourself where reality ends and creativity has run wild!

About my photos; my photography is not the best, I know. I am using a Samsung point and shoot digital camera and while there is nothing wrong with this camera, I hope to own a more appropriate camera for 'blog picture taking' one day. Most of my photos on my blog were taking by me with this camera. I also use free stock photography from Dreamstime. Of course I also use photos that belong to blogs that I feature with links to them. I do hope you are enjoying my blog. Thank you for reading me.
