About Us

One day a couple of good eggs teamed up -  Megan from Iowa (aka the Midwest Riviera) and Tina from Smalltown, PA (aka Pennslytucky) - to make one great blog featuring a variety of interests!!

We are so excited to share all of our favorite things - crafting, baking, cooking, and so much more!

I love pretty things. Things that are bright and colorful, shiny and sparkly! I'm kind of like an overgrown toddler with her "eye on the prize". I think that's why I've always had a fascination for crafting. Taking lots of little things and turning them into something whole - something pretty! Cooking and baking are something I love, too (Did I mention I love to eat?). Also, I love to read and I'm a TV Junky. I can't even tell you how many hours a week I spend watching television and movies. Everything from sitcoms and fictional dramas to instructional cooking shows like Barefoot Contessa and Sunny Anderson to big blockbuster films. It's a wonder I have enough time to leave the house and go to work.

Then I met Megan...

Two people with a love for the same things, living in two different states. Loving high-dollar things without paying the high-dollar prices. She's my Iowa Twin!

I'm the queen of unfinished projects - for every project finished there are 2 or 3 laying in the project graveyard that is my craft room. I love to sew, decorate, paint, craft and (mostly) cook!  I'm happiest when there's a crowd around my kitchen table and a sink full of dirty dishes!  I love to take hard recipes and make them easier and find ways to recreate all of the pretty things I see. 

And then I met Tina...

What started as two coworkers working halfway across the country from each other, chatting here and there about crafty projects and the best way to tackle a new recipe has turned into what you see here.  Now if I could only convince my "sister from a different mister" to come join me here in the Midwest.
