Welcome to Thrillingly Thrifty!
I'm Cassidy and, yes, I get a Thrill out of being Thrifty. I love to craft (mostly sewing as of late) but don't have the unlimited resources to do everything I want, so I've made it my goal to save money while indulging in my creative outlets.
I also try to be practical - I make what me and my family needs. (Mostly.) You'll probably see a lot of kids things on this blog, because first and foremost I am a Mom.
My Munchkin is a 2 year old sassy pants who likes getting her way and doesn't like trying on clothes. Or wearing clothes, for that matter.
My Monster is 1 year old and ALL BOY. I don't make nearly as many things for him as I do for his sister, mostly because he'll just destroy it as soon as I look away.
My Monkey was born in the beginning of August, and (thankfully!) doesnt do a whole lot yet. Lately he's been taking a lot of naps laying across my lap, while I'm busy crafting.
I suppose I should add a little disclaimer - I'm a fairly new crafter. I grew up with a very creative mother, who does so many different things and all of them SO well, but I never felt like I inherited much of that particular gene. It wasn't until about a year ago, when I was fighting off my second round of Postpartum depression, that I decided to start making things.
Crafting didn't solve all my problems, but it gave me a place to just be me. And I think thats what every mom, every woman, needs.
