Well, it's about time, right? You can blame me, Morgan, for it taking this long to get the ball rolling, so to speak. It's a not-so-long story, actually, but knowing me, it'd turn into a "long story," so I'll do my best-est to keep it short.
I have another blog, well, I did, but I had to move it elsewhere, since discovering that it was "linked" up to this one. When I changed the profile picture and information for this one, you guessed it, it changed all the same info in the other one...and visa versa...UGH! My poor homeschooling blog suddenly looked as if, well, just check out mine and Miranda's profile picture and the bit about "just two homeschooling mommies..." and I'm sure you'll get the picture. Oops! What to do, what to do? I didn't want to have to "start all over" with the Prim ~n~ Proper blog, so after much contemplating (nearly two weeks worth...of contemplating-yeah, I'm pretty... particular like that- then hurdling the "bummer factor" of the whole situation), the light came on, and I knew just what to do! After getting the other blog moved and deleted, we were finally ready to roll. So, there you have it, my long(er) version of the not-so-long story, condensed, Morgan style, and... here we are---at last! I suppose the best way to get started and get on with the fun stuff is to simply "introduce" ourselves, so let's get on with it, shall we?
Before the "formalities," we'd both just like to thank you, our followers, for ...following! We look forward to "meeting" you, and hope that you will enjoy stopping by to visit now and then. If you're here, then you're probably a big ole' grubby/primitive lush, like ourselves, and we simply AD♥RE our grubby friends and fellow crafters! It takes a special kind of somethin' to appreciate this "genre" of crafting and decor, and it is our great pleasure to share in the l♥ve of it all. Please feel free to leave us comments, or just say "Hi!" We'd love to hear from you!
So, who are we? To start, we are Morgan (me), and Miranda. Some call us "M & M." It's totally fine if you call us that. We are BFFs, you know, "Best Friends Forever?" We've ended up being neighbors on and off for the past 10 years or so now. To explain the "on and off" bit, that kind of went something like this: They moved, we moved, they moved again, and again (and maybe even again?), then we moved, they moved, they moved again, AND again, then they moved back! And here we are-neighbors-again. lol Anyway, back to who the heck we are---
We are wives, homeschooling mommies, second-hand JUNKIES, frugal probably beyond it's actual meaning, and among a long list of other things, we L♥VE-2-CRAFT (and shop)! We started off back in 2007 with some Christmas crafting sometime after Halloween. We had LOADS of fun, and made some really cute stuff. I think we skipped a craft session in 2008 due to the whole "not neighbors" thing, and we simply never found the time that season. By 2009, we were back to the craft table with more ideas and cute stuff. In 2010, our "yearly session" started off as usual, but this time we had made something really amazing that we both were just "ga-ga" over, which led to more ideas, more "goodies," and excitement to the point we decided to try our hand at selling some of our creations. We browsed local bazaars on CraigsList, and bazaar-hopping was THE PLAN. ...until something much more exciting came along and dropped it's opportunity right into our laps!

So, there you have *us* in a nutshell. Thanks for taking the time, and thanks for being here. Until next time-
Your Prim ( 'n' Grubby) Friends,
♥M & M♥
