About Me

Oh.  Hi there.  My name is Jen.

I started this blog to document all the things I do that are Martha Stewart inspired, and sometimes I do but mostly I like to start a lot of projects and finish approximately 2% of them.

I do like GardeningHalloween and basically kicking ass.

I also have 15 years of Martha Stewart magazines saved.

Yes.  You read that correctly.  I’m sure at some point you’ll see me on TLC Hoarders:  The Martha Stewart edition.

These magazines have inspired some good, some bad and some downright wrong.

Why does she make tie dyed doilies look so awesome?

Who can resist braiding their own pine needle wreaths?

Blow glass?  Sure just fire up the grill.

I’ve been known to write random and infrequently as well.   I’m not a daily blogger and writing is not high on the to do list.

Once in a while I take on heavier subjects like having a bipolar parent, gun safely, and gay equality.

I don’t generally do reviews but when I do they have to be a good fit. I have worked with the brands: Moen, Martha Stewart, Staples and Sherwin Williams. If you want to read more of where I’ve written, performed, interviewed or quoted then you can find that on this page. 

I started my online life with twitter and now have had a long love affair with Pinterest.

If you stick around, I’ll bake you cookies. They’ll be gluten-free because I’m a jerk like that.

I’m really obsessed with Halloween, did I already mention that?

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. So funny! I am NOT a blog reader AT ALL, yet I found myself reading a lot of your posts :) You remind me of myself especially with the social son. My husband is the bipolar one in my life (undiagnosed – but still). I will follow …..

  2. I just stumbled across your blog. Really enjoying it. I'm the least Martha-Stewarty. Ever. Well, I knit, but not well. I'm killer at interior fridge decoration. I guess there's that, too.

    Keep writing and I'll keep reading. We shook on it. I swear we did.
    My recent post trial by pee

  3. Another ADD/ADHD mom?! Hurray! That’s so…hey…what’s that making that noise over there? I should google noisemakers, maybe I could make those and sell them, maybe I should be a professional party planner, maybe I should go back to school!…wait, what?

  4. Ah! I'm so happy to meet my twin….I thought I was the only one trying to make it in suburbia…so far, not working.
    found you through jessica bern… so glad to be here, so I can feel normal.

    • It totally used to be. Then I added vegetable wash and hand soap and it became too cluttered. I now house all three in one of those shower dispensers that I have mounted on the outside of the cabinet above my sink. I press the button and the soap falls right into the sink. It's a little genius.

    • *sigh* I did this too. My dad cooked mushrooms in Dawn detergent on one visit. They weren't as tasty as they sound.
