All About Me……..
Tempting Thyme About Page

Wow, how do I even start this?

Welcome to Tempting Thyme, my name is Shaunna and I will be your hostess on this crazy journey into blogland!    LOL!    That is like me telling B that when he struggles in writing papers (or in the latest case, a college essay) he should just start them off with 1  2  3  4  5  6  I can’t believe I am doing this!  From there the words would just start to flow………

I am obsessed with anything DIY, love working with my hands, and am the biggest penny pincher you will find here in my little slice of heaven….Oxford, Ohio.  Don’t get me wrong, I will use quality product, but if there is any humanly possible way for me to save $$ on the labor, I am all over it!  I love to learn new skills, and I don’t think anything is off limits (well maybe snake handler, don’t think I could handle that)!

I have been married to my college sweetheart for 21 years, and we have been blessed with 2 amazing boys.   I graduated from Purdue University (Boiler Up baby) with a degree in Restaurant Hotel Management.  After work assignments in Boston, New York City and Cincinnati and realizing my entire paycheck would go towards daycare, I settled into the groove of being a stay at home Mom.    I don’t think I handled it well, just being honest.    I do know that this is when my love affair with DIY started!   I needed an outlet from little kids…..not just my 2, but the other 4 I agreed to care for as well.  That’s right, I became the ‘daycare’ for neighborhood kids.  If you had told me I would be babysitting for 10 years of my life, I probably would have peed myself laughing so hard.   Looking back, I wouldn’t have changed any aspect of this!   I may have entered the work force 6 years ago, but my love affair with DIY has not diminished!  I  have been creating chaos in my household for over 15 years, and I do not see an end in sight……poor PT!

You are going to see a lot….and I mean A LOT of recipes on this sight.   I find great comfort in the kitchen, it relaxes me, and I love feeding people.  Even though baking reigns supreme, you will also find tons of craft and home remodeling projects at Tempting Thyme.  Although I have 2 feet planted in the work force (grass is not always greener on the other side), my head still swims with project ideas day in and day out!

I am constantly trying to juggle a drill, paint brush and a whisk……..welcome to my little world…….I hope I am able to inspire you in some tempting way!!

  1. Hey Shaunna,

    I recently came across your site http://temptingthyme.com/ and I’m wondering if I can post one of my articles here.

    I’ve been writing up home improvement articles too and would love the chance to write
    on your blog but I couldn’t manage to find your email. If you could get a hold of me at
    ikatie.jones@outlook.com​, I would greatly appreciate it.


  2. Shaunna,
    Found your blog by accident shortly before Thanksgiving. I research it once or twice a week and am always delighted with what I find. You are amazing, and I would say “brilliant”. I wish you continued success with your Blog. I am going to try the Cowboy Pot Roast for Super Bowl Sunday. Proud of you, Sally
