Hello and welcome to my lifestyle and personal finance blog. I am a writer, business owner, newlywed, and stepmom. My husband and I have been together for almost seven years and I have an amazing thirteen year old stepson. I grew up with parents who were creative money makers and savers and have passed their years of knowledge down to me. Due to a car accident and poor financial choices our marriage started in debt. This is our story of how we are learning from our mistakes. I’m creative at heart and I want to show that through creative ways we will become debt free.

I’ve owned my own small business on Etsy since 2011 making Steampunk Jewelry and have been featured in Spurgeon Vaughn Ratcliffe “Steampunk Jewelry.” During the Christmas season I am hard at work hand making my best-selling Steampunk Ornaments. My husband and I both work full time at a non-profit organization working with developmentally disabled adults.

We keep busy.

When we aren’t working we love being nerds and getting dressed up in Steampunk Costumes and going to Steampunk Conventions. I’m a complete nerd. I love Star Wars and everything nerdy in between.
