About

Hi and welcome!!

This blog is my personal place. I post about whatever I feel like posting while focusing on my love for my family, any type of crafting, cooking, traveling, and photography. My husband, two girls, a dog, two hamsters and I live in a little village outside of Cambridge, England. We’re Americans who have been living in this gorgeous country since April of 2010 via the Air Force. We’re not sure how long we will be here for but whilst here, we’re traveling as much as we can!

A few years ago I was very active in the papercrafting community. For a little while I did design work for some fantastic companies: WPlus9, Scarlet Lime, Two Sketches 4 You and more. While I do miss the challenges that comes with being a DT, I don’t miss the deadlines. One day I’d like to get back into the fast lane of the crafting industry but for now, I want to just sit back, relax and do whatever I feel like doing.

In my spare time, when the girls are at school, I like to keep up my skills in technology and education. I am also a volunteer for the American Red Cross on base. When I get a chance, I do a bit of photography work. But, due to the girls’ gymnastics (gymnastics is about 45min away and it takes up many evenings and weekends), my photography work is very limited.

This 2015 I want to focus on sharing my meal planning experiences, budgeting, using more homemade household products and doing a better job of documenting the family via photography and scrapbooking. I’ve slacked off a bit in that later department and I think it’d be nice if Jovie, the youngest, has about as many albums as her big sister, Emma :)

If you wish to follow along with our adventure, please feel free to follow me. Do say hi sometimes and if you have a blog/online public space where I can say hello, I’d love to visit you also!

    From checking your bio, you sound as great as your work. I went to the Kansas City Art Institute, funny I find you online several spots, and we are in the same town. (Not stalking you or anything :-) But I do some SU private swaps email me if you might like to join. I am figuring out CS3 on my own while working full-time, going to DeVry and doing SU too, plus mom and wife jobs. That workaholic thing, got it too. Nice to meet you on-line.

    found you through the 2s4y site, and have followed a few of your links (both color sites are wonderful). I hope to be able to build a site like yours (I’m just a beginner). I’m using Photoshop Elements right now, but have cs2 that I bought a long time ago, but never loaded it, am thinking I should load and try to use it. I look forward to following your progress.

    HI Savitri,

    Your post is amazing. Your name is Indian. Savitri is Shiva’s wife. Shiva is a god in indian mythology and even Savitri is godess.

    Cheers
    Shankar

    I love your about me facts :) Especially the one that “claims” you’d invest your money….only after a $10,000 lens….sounds like me!

    I’ve added you to my blogroll because you’re just TOO good and TOO inspiring not to!
