About Me

Welcome to Create & Babble! My name is Jeanie and I am the “babble” behind Create and Babble. I created this blog out of my passion for creating pretty things and making things pretty! This is my place for sharing my latest projects that include everything from DIYs builds (I have this thing about power tools!) to crafting, sewing, home improvement and home decorating. I hope you’ll look around, maybe learn something, and be inspired to make something pretty, too!

In order to help you get to know a little about me, I am sharing Ten Random Things About Me:

  • I was born in 1958; yes I’m old a baby-boomer. However, I RARELY act my age. : )

  • I am addicted to Chai Lattes – thanks Starbucks.
  • I wish I had another daughter so I could plan another wedding – just kidding, sorta. That was so much fun!

  • I never hang wreaths on my front door. No reason. Maybe this will change. (Update: I love making wreaths and there is ALWAYS a wreath on my door!)
  • I don’t like amusement parks. That won’t change. But I LOVE the beach! We are only three hours away from our favorite get-away shore town: North Wildwood, NJ
  • I don’t use Twitter. That is changing. (Update: I am using Twitter! Come follow me!)

  • I love to ride my bicycle. Long, long rides. I am going to ride the Great Allegheny Passage next year from Pittsburgh to Washington, D.C. Hold me to it! (update: DONE!)
  • Guilty pleasure: I love watching the Housewives of New Jersey! But that’s the only HW show I watch (like THAT changes your opinion of my taste in television).
  • I love summer and detest winter. Spring is good because it’s followed by summer. Fall, eh. I know what’s next so I don’t get all excited about fall. Which is a shame really because it’s such a pretty season. The only good that comes out of winter is Christmas! I love Christmas. Having a 6-year old adorable grandson (and now a new baby granddaughter) make it so magical.
  • I collect recipes. I print out recipes all the time.  I have pages and pages of recipes that I’ve printed from the web. It’s crazy ’cause I really don’t like to cook!

So there you have it. Ten random things that hopefully helped you get to know me a little better. Now it’s your turn! Tell me something random about you!
