My name is Debra. I live on the border by the sea in Texas. In other words, I live within minutes of the Mexican Border and really close to the Gulf of Mexico. It is a far cry from my native Utah, but I love it down here and have a hard time imagining ever leaving.
My husband is a 6th grade science/technology/guitar teacher at a middle school in the area. We own a business together, Joyous Moments Photography, and I spend all my time either on the business or with our 2-year-old, Sofie.
I have a degree in journalism from Utah State University (I bleed Aggie Blue) and actually started this blog more than 2 years ago to fulfill an assignment. As I blogged for one of my classes, I found I really enjoyed it. This became our family blog before I decided to separate the two and now this is just my craft/photography/recipe/book review blog.
I can be contacted at housewifeeclectic@gmail (dot) com
My best friend, Lorene, does a feature about the web every Wednesday. Here is a little bit more about here in her own words.
I am married to a wonderful elementary school teacher who serenades me daily (often from the shower). We have a beautiful baby boy who is one-year-old and growing like a weed! I am formally trained as a technical writer (which is not as boring as you imagine!) and do some part-time writing and editing work from home. I post my own craft projects and recipes as Lu over at I am just Lu. I can’t say that I’m a successful crafter or blogger, however, because I spend far more time searching for inspiration and projects than I do actually executing the projects…
