About Me

First of all WELCOME to Fireflies & Cattails!
I am so excited that you're here. :)

I'm Mandy, a stay at home mom to my two year old boy, Noah. I guess you could say I have my dream job. Ever since I was little I told my mom when I grew up I was going to stay home with my kids and have MORE than one; I was an only child and always begged for a brother or a sister but never got one. You know what? It all worked out and I'm blessed beyond imagination.

I have always been artistic and creative. Growing up, I spent a lot of time at my grandma's house which meant I was around her creativity. She is amazing at sewing and crocheting and taught me how to do both. Up until I decided to purchase my own I had been using her Singer sewing machine that's close to 60 years old. It's been a part of my life for so long that it sort of feels like an old friend or relative. :) Another thing about my grandma, she's an awesome cook. I'd like to think that I'm a pretty good cook too.

So, if you haven't gotten the hint yet, this blog is a place where I post about my creative adventures, my life as a SAHM, and recipes. If you would like to know more, just ask!
