About Holly

Hi, I’m Holly Abston, mom of three sweet boys,  wife of one handy guy and servant to two calico cats.  I’ve been blogging since February 2007, when I finally found what I didn’t even know I was looking for in this fun little crafty community.  In my spare time (what’s that?) I teach fun little crafty classes where we giggle as much as we glue.  I’m overly sentimental.  I paint, craft, assemble, draw and create unnecessary but cute things for fun.  I love to scout out thrift stores, garage sales, and dusty flea markets for cool stuff to put in my house.  I am on a very middle class budget, but I have AWESOME taste… haha, so I have to get creative in order to have the kind of home I want!  My kids are the loves of my life (and, like any good love story, they make me CRAZY sometimes!).  Laundry is the bane of my existence.  But even with the laundry,  I know It’s a blessed life I live!  I think I’m probably just like you, yes you… sitting there reading this with your toddler climbing on your lap and pulling your arm…..   you:  staring at your laptop while your bifocals slip down your nose, or you… the one who’s wondering how to juggle the extra expenses you have this month because you need new tires.  I am just. Like. You.  I remind myself often that THESE ARE THE BEAUTIFUL DAYS and I try to soak up all the goodness whenever I can.   I hope you enjoy the Squeeze The Lemons site, which my super duper husband put together for me (I did the illustrations, though!).  Check out all the pages and be sure to follow us on Facebook!  Leave me a comment and let’s get to know each other.  I think this is going to be FUN!
