Hi there, welcome to my blog ! My name is Marissa and I’m from the Midwest USA. I’m self employed as a Pinterest Strategist and this blog is my second project 🙂 Some of the things I write about here are: unschooling, sensory processing disorder, earth-based spirituality, diy projects, crafts, activities, recipes, and Amazon finds! Basically anything home, life, or family related – like the blog name says 😉
A little about my family….
My husband and I have been married for 10 years; honestly, I don’t know how he’s put up with me for that long (HAHA)! He is my soul mate in every way and I don’t know what I’d do without him. Life would be a lot more boring, that’s for sure!
Together we have a 5 year old daughter (K) who is really tall and smart for her age. Most people think she’s older than she is! She was diagnosed with Sensory Processing Disorder at the age of 3, and we decided to homeschool (unschool) her to allow greater flexibility in her education and to be able to support her specific needs with SPD.
When hubby and I married in 2009, I gained a bonus-son (E). He is 16 now and moved a couple states away with his mom about 3 years ago. He comes here for summers and long breaks though. Needless to say, the past few years have been a serious adjustment and we miss him like crazy when he’s not here!
We also have one crazy Blue Heeler named Karma and two outdoor cats named Kipper and Kushiel (Kip and Kush for short).
What is unschooling?
Well, “unschooling” does not mean the same thing to everyone, but for us, unschooling means that everything we do is an opportunity to learn something. We use videos, apps, toys, games, activities, books, etc. as educational resources, but we do NOT sit at a desk or table and do “busy work”. (I personally HATE paper clutter so we avoid worksheets/workbooks and pointless paper crafts like the plague.)
Did you name your cat after Kushiel’s Dart?
Yes. Yes I did.
Why don’t you have more/better recipe photos?
Because I suck as a photographer, have no patience, am too busy to learn better photog skills, and my mom (who IS a photographer) can’t be at my side every time I need a quick photo (unfortunately).
What does a Pinterest Strategist do?
I help other bloggers and entrepreneurs market their websites/blogs/businesses via Pinterest. It’s a bit more involved than it seems! If you’d like more info on my services you can visit www.bluefairystudios.co
