This is a blog about making something cool out of junk. They used to tell me at the fire station “you can’t make chicken salad out of chicken s**t”. I am here to tell you that you can, and I shall.
I’m 40, married and CNBC (childless not by choice). We are living the dream, sort of. I work in government (yes yes I’m a bureaucrat) and it pays the bills. I want to do something more. I want to write. I want to see the world. I want to do great things…. wait, that’s not going to happen working in small government. At least not the first two.
So back to what the heck I’m doing. I love to craft. But…. I’m cheap. Yes flat out cheap. I have to be, I don’t make a lot of money, (even our pension plan is getting screwed over this year, going up to 9% of my check??!!) but I love what I do, and then there is the insurance. I have to figure out how to do things on the cheap. I catch sales, use coupons, and reuse stuff in weird ways.
So this blog is mostly about a CNBC woman filling up her broken heart with fun while she tries to do cool stuff for very little. I cant promise all of the projects are going to be super cheap-o remakes, but hey, I’m gonna try.
Let’s get started making chicken salad ya’ll!!
