Welcome to crunchysoul.com! I am a wife, mom and stepmom. I live in the Washington, DC area and spend my days as a full-time working stiff but in my soul, I’m a little bit crunchy. I daydream about having a flourishing garden, sewing beautiful quilts, making handmade toys, finishing home improvement projects, working with wood, and living green. Most of the time, my good intentions outweigh my time, skills, and resources, and I get in over my head, stalled with half-finished projects. But I’m inspired by all the talent and creativity I see out in the blogosphere and I want to join in. I am trying to embrace the philosophy of “Use what you have. Start where you are. Do what you can.” Come join me as I learn, share, grow, and DO.
