A Brief SavvyHomemade History
So, in 2008, I found myself in a bit of a jam. With the daily commute to work (thank God for retirement) firmly behind me, I suddenly had more time on my hands than I could have possibly imagined.
My kids had grown up, starting their own families, and I thought I could spend my days sipping herbal tea and reading novel after novel.
After about a month, I was so bored I intentionally made things dirty so I could clean them again. I had lost my purpose, my role in life.
That’s when I said to myself, ‘Angela, you need to get a damn life!’ And so I did.
I already had over 30 years of craft and homemaking experience to share with others, but what started as a way to keep myself sane has spiraled into this wonderful passion project of a blog I’ve called SavvyHomemade.
I have since qualified as an Organic Skincare Formulator. Every day I share my experience while crafting something new, it’s fantastic.
Over the years, I’ve come a long way with homemade beauty products, homemade crafts, soap making, and DIY bath products. I know; I never expected this to happen.
But I’m so happy to say that those first steps into the world of diy crafts can lead me here, there’s absolutely no way you, reading this right now, cannot do the same.
Since taking your course, I have been making my own moisturizers, serums and cleansers.
The recipes are as good as it gets. My creams are now better than the expensive big name brands, at a fraction of the cost.
I had already tried some of Angela’s “recipes” and loved them. This class took it up a notch by learning about the different ingredients and how to formulate your own recipes. Looking forward to trying more!
It’s been really difficult for me to find quality DIY content out there on the internet & yours is by far the best that’s come across my screen lately. Keep up your hard work doing such an awesome job with these videos!
Meet The Other Team Members
“After working as a children’s librarian for a few years, and as an archaeologist before that, I decided to take the plunge and help my mother out with her blog SavvyHomemade.
At first, I only expected to help her write a few pages or edit some photos. I never expected to fall in love with something like soapmaking!
I just love how exciting it is to come up with your own recipes and try out new ingredients. I’ve gone from the daily grind to experiencing something new and interesting every single day.
This newfound love led me to obtain a diploma in skincare formulation, further enriching my daily adventures.
“After walking away from the corporate lifestyle, I’ve never been happier. Beauty and skincare have always been a passion of mine, so discovering how to make everything yourself has been a revelation for me.
I work alongside my mother, Angela, learning the tricks of the trade, and I manage all of the social media for Savvyhomemade.
I get to spend more time with my little boy, too, which is the real blessing in all of this. They grow up so fast!
“Angela’s husband here, as well as her personal IT support guy!
When I’m not on the golf course, you can be sure that I’m behind the scenes here on savvyhomemade, making sure everything is ticking over properly.
Being able to support my family on this web project gives me so much satisfaction. It’s really a dream come true.
Now enough about us, here’s the best place to start.
