I am Heather and I am a creative mom. I was creative long before I became a mom, but thank heavens I have been able to continue to create as my family grows and I have 4 (1 husband and 3 kids) great reasons to do so. My blog is like one huge show and tell of all the ideas that are constantly flowing in my mind.
During the last few months of 2008 I began to read my first "favorite" blogs. I was so jealous of these awesome women sharing their talents and ideas with the world. What a totally cool opportunity. Then it occurred to me that I could do exactly the same thing and so in 2009 Small Fry began. I have an inborn need to create, share and teach. When these things are an active part of my life I feel great happiness and satisfaction. Writing this blog gives me the opportunity to do all 3 of these things regularly. About 6 months after having my first daughter (Small Fry) I realized that I wasn't doing anything for me. I loved being a mom but I needed to have an outlet for myself, so I gave myself permission to not clean the house everyday and dedicated time each week to create and I haven't looked back since. I was once a Family and Consumer Sciences teacher and though there are many days that I miss being in the class room, I have an even better opportunity before me now because I have the opportunity to share and teach people all over the world with this blog and I couldn't be more thrilled. I consider myself to be someone that knows a little bit about a lot of things that every mom does from day to day and I want to share what I know: recipes, crafts,sewing, household tips, kid ideas and thrifty living. I hope you will find useful & practical ideas in all of these areas right here on Small Fry & Co.
