(Photos coming soon!)
My name is Tatyana Batz, though friends and family call me Tanya. My husband Mike and I have been happily married for 11 years. We have two beautiful boys, 7 1/2 and 2 1/2 years old, 3 dogs and 2 cats. Each one of us has our own little quirks. Me: ADD. My husband: very little patience. Our oldest son Andrew: ADHD and ODD. Our youngest son Jaxon: physical and mental developmental delays. The dogs are loud and the cats are needy. And we all lover each other unconditionally.
We currently reside in Palo Iowa, but would like to move to either Washington state (where my family lives) or to Tennessee (where his family lives). TN is the most likely place we’ll go since they have nuclear power and that’s what my husbands specialty is. But since there are no openings we will remain here for the time being.
I’m originally from Ukraine. My family emigrated to the US in 1994 when I was barely 10 years old. I still speak the language, cook the native food and try to hold onto as much of my heritage as I can.
About the Blog
The reason for this blog is so I can share the good the bad and the creative parts of my life along with general lifestyle topics. I have multiple projects going on at the same time and love to share the final results after all the hard work I put into something. I’ll also be reviewing the products I use in the process. Maybe I’ll inspire someone to make-re-make something the way many other bloggers have inspired me.
About the Shop
One of my favorite hobbies is jewelry making. I mainly make pendants that have either Ukrainian embroidery prints or pressed botanicals embedded in resin. Right now I only have a few posted in my Etsy shop, ResinMusings. Though I have many pendants made, I don’t yet have them all photographed. I’m waiting for a semi-nice day outside so I can get some good lighting. Eventually I will figure out how to have a shop section on my home page. As of now, I’m still too new at this.
