About Me

Hi There!Smiling Vonda

Well, first things first, My name is Vonda! Nice to meet ya! I currently live in the Washington DC area with my super hot former Marine hubby (oorah!) and my two kids. I am a native Washingtonian and my hubby is from a small town in Alabama.

Like the title of the site says I’m a homeschool mom and real creative junkie and have been since I was a kid. I love art in all forms whether I am doing it or I come across another talented artist.

I plan on touching on whatever tickles my fancy here, but I will mainly be focusing on the following areas:

  • Writing. This is and will always be my first love. I wrote my very first full novel at around 11 years old named, “Roses Are Red”. Since then, I went on to publish 4 books (find out more about them here). I’ve written for a few magazines and even was the editor of an online magazine that got me quite a few awards.
  • Crochet and Sewing. The fiber arts is an area that is fairly new for me. Granted, I’ve been crocheting off and on since I was in elementary school, but I’ve only been sewing for just over a year. I literally just decided I wanted to try it, bought a sewing machine from Amazon and that was that. When I show people my work, they always tend to not believe that. (LOL) I’m just as amazed at what God has blessed me with as they are.
  • Homeschool. I’m a new homeschool mom in that I have only been doing it for 2 years now (going into my third). I homeschooled my daughter through her senior year in high school and started with my son when he was in the 5th grade.

This blog was started as a place for me to share my love for art with the world and also connect with other junkies out there too! Yeah, I read all the things that said I should pick one niche and “streamline” my topics, but what fun is that? Plus, I do what I want! (Wink) So, let’s get this party going!
