Creating

American Wren Creations | DIY | Recipes

I started creating and selling handmade baby goods after a camping road trip in the summer of 2018. On that trip, I was so tired of reaching for disposable baby wipes or paper towels to clean up our then 8 month old; it felt so wasteful. I wished I had something reusable and cute to use as a wipe instead. Since then the list of items I offer has only grown! You can find my shop on Etsy, and if you’re looking for a specific fabric or style, send me a message! I’d love to work with you on a custom order.

My husband and I love a good DIY project to do together. We always have a project in the works, and you can be sure to find our kids helping with our projects. The joy of DIY is contagious!

I have been gluten free for five years, and in that time I’ve adjusted an endless amount of recipes. On the blog, I’ll share some of our family’s favorite recipes.

Growing

Gardening | Landscaping

When I was a kid, I vividly remember making my very own garden… out of gravel… in the driveway. Points for imagination, right?! I mapped different layouts and marked my rocky rows with letters etched into the ground (a C for carrot, a P for potatoes, etc…). It was only natural that I grew up to have my very own real garden. My husband built me a beautiful cedar garden in early 2017 and we’ve expanded my garden in some way each year since then. My daughter and son love gardening with me and taking care of all of our plants. Teaching them how to grow their own food and spending quality time with them in the garden is a blessing.

Live Abundantly

Being a lifelong learner, I am always up for trying new things. Creating a joyful home full of love, learning and fun is my mission. God is always good, and for that I am a grateful. Sharing tips, ideas and inspiration, I want to positively encourage you to go for it; create, grow and live abundantly.
