About MeOccasionally Crafty: About Me

About Me

Hi Everyone!  Thanks for stopping by my blog!

Occasionally Crafty is a craft blog for the busy woman.  I focus primarily on crafts that are simple to make and will give a big impact on a small budget.  You'll even find some family-friendly recipes, activity ideas, and parenting posts!

I'm Valerie, a SAHM of three!  I play the flute and the piano, though my playing opportunities are few and far between!  I've been married 20 years to my handsome husband.  We are opposites in nearly every way, but that just makes us an awesome team!  My three kids keep me running all over town and are the source of the wrinkles that are beginning to appear- but I love them with all my heart!

I am an avid reader, especially of fantasy epics.  I will sacrifice sleep and cleaning my house to finish "just one more chapter".  I'm thrilled to see a love of reading pass on to my kids.

I also enjoy baking and am known for my cookies.  From time to time you'll see my creations pop up here on the blog!

I created this blog as a much-needed creative outlet when my kids were home with me and I had no adult time.  I love to create beautiful things to make my house a home and bring a little cuteness to our lives!
