Hi and welcome to my blog The Denver Housewife! I’m so happy you decided to stop by.
About The Denver Housewife
The Denver Housewife was started in September of 2011 with the intention of being a blog I shared with my family since we moved several states away from them. We moved to Colorado in 2011 and didn’t know anyone in Colorado. I quickly realized that there was so much more I could do with my little space of the internet and started growing The Denver Housewife into the site it is now.
In 2011 after I realized I wanted more than just a blog my family was reading I started to dabble in coupon blogging. I quickly realized that while I love to shop with a coupon and get a great deal that coupon blogging just wasn’t for me. I quickly transitioned into the mommy blogger spaced and have only grown from there. While I love the mommy blogger aspect of blogging and it will always be part of my blog, I knew there was more I wanted to do with this little space on the interwebz.
2020 changed a lot of things for me and many others, but one of the areas that changed was my blog. Being stuck home due to the pandemic gave me a fresh set of eyes on my blog and the things I had dreamed about doing I started to put into fruition. You see… I always wanted to share printables and more crafts, but I didn’t know where to begin or I didn’t “have the time”. I saw a need to help parents (and anyone else caring for families) even more since we were all stuck at home. I wanted to be a resource to help them keep their kids entertained without having to run to the store for supplies – like printables. I also started to put more dedication into one of my passions, crafting. I think it’s safe to say that after 10 years of blogging I have finally found my happy place.
The Denver Housewife is a family-friendly blog where I share recipes that you can feed your family, family-friendly travel and events, printables to keep your little ones entertained or to make your life a little bit easier, crafts that you can make for yourself, or as DIY gifts, and everything that I love in life. It’s a mix of everything that is important to me and that makes me happy. On The Denver Housewife, you can find:
- Craft Projects, Tutorials, and Free Files
- Free Printables
- Travel Guides
- Colorado Living
- Reviews and occasionally a giveaway
My name is Jamie. I’m a 30 something-year-old mom to 4 and wife. I’ve always had a knack for sharing things I love. It goes as far back as elementary school. I am an over-sharer by nature with a love for crafting, family, and everything in between. I come from a family of crafters (painting, crochet, drawing, music, etc) and it just feels natural to me. I remember being in the first grade and spending my free time drawing or doodling and then it turned into Lisa Frank sticker collecting. In High School, I got into scrapbooking and as an adult, I got into cooking, baking, and various other crafting techniques.
I’ve always had a loud and big personality. Growing up I was nicknamed lungs because I was so loud and nothing has changed. You can probably hear me before I enter the room because I have a loud and big personality. While I am a shy introvert once I get to know you I will instantly assume we are BFFs and over-share everything with you. Naturally, I had to turn my “loudness” into more and that is how The Denver Housewife was born.
The Denver Housewife is my little space on the internet where I can be loud about everything I love. Family, Food, Crafts, Travel, and everything that goes into raising my family. I hope you enjoy this little space I’ve created because I love doing it.
About my Family
My husband and I met many many years ago and we were friends for many years before we finally started dating. He’s truly my best friend. I know everyone says that about their husbands, but he was my best friend before we started dating and has continued to be one. He’s the person who can always cheer me up when I’m having a bad day, make me laugh over the silliest things, and is just my partner in life. We see eye to eye on almost everything and it’s comforting knowing you’re going through life and raising kids with someone who is truly on the same page as you. Together we have a blended family with 4 kids.
Eric is my 18-year-old son who lives in California. While he’s not very active on my blog, since he’s a few states away, he still makes an appearance once in a while. He’s more of the shy one in the family and likes to keep to himself.
Together my husband and I have an 11-year-old daughter, Maddie, who has a bubbling personality. She is a real people person who loves all things mine craft, anime, arts n’ crafts, and amusement parks. She’s definitely my little thrill seeker and always keeps life interesting with the funny things she says. She loves helping out on the blog and is often upset when a package arrives that’s not for her to try out.
William is our 7-year-old son. He’s our crazy little one and always keeps life interesting with his shenanigans. He loves race cars, Spiderman, and legos. While he loves to terrorize his sisters, he will go fight for them in a heartbeat.
Caroline is our youngest one and is 5 years old. She is the baby of the family and it shows. She loves to play with food and cook, Trolls, and all things related to babies. She has the bubbliest personality and is oh so goofy.
The babies aka George & Gracie. We rescued the babies (our cats) in 2018 and I love them fiercely like they’re my kids. George is a fluffy black kitty who is full of affection, is an attention seeker, and loves to talk to us.
Gracie is a grey kitty who loves to be on her own. She acts like she doesn’t want to be around us, but when you’re snuggled up on the couch or in bed she’ll creep over and snuggle up next to you to take a nap. They both love their toys, treats, and fighting over prime window spots to stare outside.
How We Spend Our Time
Our family loves relaxing at home and spending time together, traveling to new places, visiting amusement parks, zoos, and other attractions, and eating out together. We’re all into technology and spend time playing video games together and watching movies. We go through life together as a family and there’s never a dull day in our house.
Thanks for stopping by and I hope you’ll check back often as new reviews are posted, yummy recipes are shared, and fun giveaways are going on! The Denver Housewife is a PR-friendly blog that is always looking for new partnerships!
