Building a simpler and greener life


Hi! I’m Meredith.


I’m so glad you’ve found my tiny online space. I have a lot that I’m going to share about my life and interests. And I’d love for you to stick around for a little while.

But first, a bit about me! 

I’ve had many roles in my life so far – student, chef, artist, blogger…
And still, the most important roles I’ve had are what is at my core. 

I’m a woman, a wife, a mother , and a homemaker.

As I get older, I’m realizing that the key to happiness in my life is to make it as simple, healthy, and peaceful as I can.  That includes the space that we live in! 

Some days, it’s a lot easier said than done! 

Simplifying your home can be overwhelming.  And making green changes can be really expensive. 

Let me break it down for you!

I’ll share what works for me and my family. Plus, I’ll try new products and techniques and share what I learn along the way. 

And if you’re intersted in the art of paper quilling or looking to start a new hobby, visit my other blog, The Papery Craftery, where I’ve been sharing paper art tips, tricks, and tutorials for years.
