Hello, and welcome to my blog DomesticMonkey.  I’d like to explain that my husband nicknamed me Monkey and turns it into all sorts of descriptive-cutesy ways of referring to me.  So, when I needed to come up with a blog name this seemed to fit.

I turned 29 years old this November, 2014.  I’m always working on or thinking about projects, have long written online about other subjects (spamming those journals with my projects,) and I decided it was time to dedicate a blog to household projects and cooking.

Anyway, I am married to the most wonderful man ever.  We have five cats.  So far no luck starting a family, but the next round of IVF may do the trick (fingers crossed.)  I have a degree in fashion design from FIT, and we live in NYC for now.  I’ve been in the city for a decade this year, and I’ve looooong wanted to move away since I am a farm girl.  Happily we are in contract on a house now, and that’ll give me plenty of projects for this blog too! I hope you’ll enjoy!

12th of July, 2015 Update:  We moved to a house away from the city this late winter, and I am thrilled about it.  It has given me more projects to tackle than I know what to do with.  😀  I’m now working as a freelance fashion designer in NYC, so unfortunately I’m not completing so many things at home lately.  However, I still try to cook interesting things and do have some many home improvements and furniture refinishing tasks on my to-do list.  I’ll be writing about them as much as I can.  🙂
