New Blog Adventure in Mississippi

Greg and I are blogging about homeschooling, our family and our travels on Tiki Travelers. This is our diary of our daily lives to keep everyone updated, especially our family and friends in Georgia, Tennessee, Alabama and Virginia.

But, for the last several months I have wanted a blog dedicated to my adventures in homemaking, couponing, bargain shopping, cooking, baking, and crafting. I am a stay at home Mom and am homeschooling our youngest 3 children. I am wading through lots of information about food additives, organic shopping and cooking, and cooking from scratch. So expect lots of posts and explanations about why we do what we do & what works and doesn't work for us. I have large cookbook collection and love to find new recipes. Clipping and using coupons for groceries is a new passion. Its fun to see how cheap I can buy an item (or 2 or 10). Which currently translates into we have a good stockpile on some items.

Then there is crafting...sewing, cross stitch, smocking, modge podge, quilting, scrapbooking, and card making. The girls want to add in soap and candle making, so thats on the "to learn" list.

I hope you enjoy our adventures, recipes and crafts.


  1. Awesome! Let the learning (on my part) begin.

  2. Can't wait! I hope the girls post some, Izzy can learn from them!

    Love ya, Rie
