Hi, I'm Stacy. I love blogging about beauty, skincare, DIY, crafting, gardening, natural living, and free printables. It's so much fun helping my readers discover tips, tricks, articles, and recipes. Plus, it's even better when I can help them learn to save money! I am mom to 3 children - an adorable little dwarf hamster named Squishy and 2 kitties named Katherine and Nola. In addition to blogging, I also singlehandedly create all the recipes, do all the product research, craft all the products, build and design my websites, plus handle all the SEO work myself... oh yeah... and I'm the blogger for both The Southern Journal and Southern Homemadeables. In my spare time (which is rare) I enjoy reading books, cooking, being anywhere on the water, flower gardening, spending good times with friends & family, and listening to music.
