Welcome! I’m Kristy, the Screaming Housewife.
I live in peaceful Eastern Iowa with my wonderful supportive husband Brent and two beautiful energetic children, Paxton and Mahlia. I am a bit of a product junkie, I have a mad love for food (both making and eating it), and I have always had a passion for creating things. Either it be a simple craft for the kids, repurposing a piece of furniture, as long as I am making something, I am in my happy zone!
I became a stay-at-home mom in 2016 and found that my passion for creativity had been ignited full force. I decided to start the new year with this blog as an outlet. How did I become the screaming housewife? To answer that I would need to take you back a few years…
On my first date with Brent, we went on what I thought was a typical date to a movie then out for a drink where we played darts and talked for hours. The night ended in the parking lot with a romantic kiss in the rain that had me fallen. This was not a typical date.
Coming up with this site name was almost as magical as that night. Except…fast forward about 13 years, throw in two kids ages 4 and 6 running through the house screaming at mach speed and instead of a kiss in the rain, my hands are in the dirty dishwater cleaning up after dinner. Brent looks at me with those same sweet eyes that I fell in love with that night 13 years ago and he says “ScreamingHousewife.com”. Thanks honey, perfect.
This is my life, it’s not perfect. I start random projects all while maintaining our household and raising two kids. Just like life, my projects do not always turn out perfect, and that’s OK! I will keep on trying, take a deep breath and enjoy the ride!
I hope you will join me on this journey of discovery, creating possible masterpieces and possible disasters. No guarantees!
