Hi! My name is Jerri.  I’m a loving wife and mom and a Sweet Southern girl!  I’m also creator of the blog Simply Sweet Home, as well as the owner of the Etsy shop Simply Sweet Creations.

About The Blog

I started Simply Sweet Home in October of 2007.  It started as a hobby and creative outlet for me after I graduated from college.  Since then I’ve been amazed at just how much the blog has grown and evolved.  In 2009, I began working with brands, and this blog gave me the opportunity to earn an income for my family from home, as well as a chance to develop a career in writing and all things creative.  In a nut shell, the blog has helped me to achieve my dreams!  Furthermore, it’s given me a great opportunity to share my ideas and experiences as a homemaker, while also learning from others.

My Purpose

Simply Sweet Home is a lifestyle blog, designed to inspire women to transform their lives, family, and homes in to something simple and sweet!

I do this by sharing simple and sweet solutions and ideas on a variety of topics, which include:

  • Food – Recipes, Products, and Meal Planning
  • Home Management – Cleaning, Organizing, Working from Home
  • DIY – Home Improvement, Decor, Crafts, Printables, Party Planning,
  • Health & Beauty – Advice, Tips, and Products
  • Finances – Money Saving Tips, Planning, Deals/Coupons
  • Personal Development and Family – Tips and Ideas for self improvement and strengthening your marriage and family.

I blog about all of these topics, because I believe maintaining a healthy and happy home, or a simply sweet home, if you will, is not just about keeping things clean or putting food on the table.  It begins with a healthy and happy homemaker who has a sense of purpose, direction, and security.  From there, a homemaker must develop the skills necessary to manage her family and home, and my hope is to simplify that process by offering up my own tips and suggestions that I have learned through trial and error.  And though I am, by no means perfect and do not have the perfect home, nor the perfect life, I hope that you can learn something from what I have to share.

About The Simply Sweet Home Family

Simply Sweet Home Couple

 I am so lucky to share my life with an amazing man!  I first met Gary when I was 20 years old, and it was love at first sight! There have been a lot of interesting twists and turns in our relationship, and it hasn’t all been easy, but I thank God every day that he brought us together.  Gary is not only a fantastic husband, he’s also my best friend, and he’s always there to stand by me, with me, in front of me, or behind me!

Gary is also a great business partner and supporter of my blog.  He sometimes helps me come up with my project concepts, and he often helps me to turn my concepts in to a reality!  And he’s also a huge help with my hand stamped jewelry business on Etsy!
Thanks to Gary,  I get to live out my dream of being a stay at home mom.  Our little boy is Thaxton, and he was born in 2017.  He is a sweet baby boy who fills my world with sunshine and happiness on a daily basis.
I am also stepmom to Noah.  Noah is a high school graduate and a member of the U.S. Military.
I’m also blessed to be pet mommy to these cuties: Sugar Belle, Rebel, Mina, and Shadow.

And I wouldn’t be a true pet mommy if I didn’t mention Dixie.  She was Rebel’s sister.  She passed away in 2014, but I still miss her and think about her every day!
