Welcome to Savvy Suburban Mama where you’ll find an eclectic blend of things families can relate to. One of the first things you’ll find is that I have a little bit of an obsession with controlling household clutter, something that, just like laundry, never ends. Sharing about home organization techniques, easy do it yourself upcycling projects for busy people, thrifty living , fun with the kids and all things that embrace the world of suburban family living is my focus.
As a mother of two young boys – aged 8 and 10 – I’m immersed in the world of family, so I know how it feels to be crunched for time. Keeping things organized and finding useful ways of keeping up, and keeping afloat, are a part of our everyday living. I’m blessed to have an amazing community to live in, a husband who works even harder than I do, and a little bit of life experience to call upon. (as in I’m an ‘older’ Mommy – so I’ve learned a lot on the way) I do my best to practice what I preach and share what I see and do with honesty and integrity. All of this adds up to one busy Mom who understands what busy Mom’s need, whether that be a creative outlet or something that makes our lives easier.
We live in the Fraser Valley, in British Columbia in what I think is the best neighbourhood of all. Our school is still small, our yards are big and the people we’ve met are amazing. I love to shop and try out new things (hence the clutter issues!) and I’ve got the creative bug. I like to follow the 3 R’s, so a lot of what I do is turn something old into something new again. I also have a passion for writing – which is why you’ve found this blog.
In 2013 I was chosen as one of the Top 30 Vancouver Mom Bloggers by VancouverMom.Ca, something I’m very proud of.
