PTPA Blogaholics: Meet Amanda

Hi y’all!  My name is Amanda and I am so excited to be to be the Lifestyle, Green Living Contributor for PTPA.

Let me tell you a little about myself….I am a 30ish stay-at-home/work-at-home mom of four!  They are 8, 6, 2 & a newborn.  I have two boys (my oldest & youngest) and two girls.  They keep my life full of joy, laughter and lots of lots of messes.  Free time is something of the past, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

Our days are full of homeschooling, making messes (aka crafting), science experiments (don’t mind the green slime) and lots of time in the kitchen.

I have been a blogger at Our Homemade Life for five years now, and started my journey as a “greenish” blogger.  Why greenish?  My family started down a more natural living path late in 2007 when I was pregnant with my first son and my husband was diagnosed with a rare blood disease.  Once I started doing research, I realized just how scary so many of the products we used in our home could be.  It seemed so overwhelming so I started small.  Here it is 8 years later and we are still making changes.

I have learned through my blogging journey that community is everything!  Having somewhere you trust to turn to, ask questions and get solid advice is vital.  I am so excited to be a part of this amazing PTPA community and be able to spend some time each month sharing tips and tricks of green living without breaking the bank.

Is there a topic you would like frugal green living advice on?  If so, be sure to leave me a comment below so I can write about it in the future!
