Hello & welcome to On The Creek Blog!

I'm Tiff & I'm so glad you're here on my little internet space!

I'm a huge fan of exclamation points & taking too many pictures!  A couple years ago I wanted to be a professional photographer but now I'm content with just taking pictures on my phone.

I started On The Creek Blog in 2015 as a way to document our home renovation journey.  My husband & I bought a foreclosure in need of lots of love.  We completely renovated the home from top to bottom.  It was quite the adventure & I love that we were able to start our home ownership journey in this way. 

My husband, James, had a background in construction/carpentry/home remodeling so we always hoped to renovate more homes together.  We got our chance in 2019 when we helped my parents with their flip house.

James & I were married for 14 years.  We were both from the same little town but James was a little older so we didn't connect until 2006 when we were in our late teens/early twenties.  We were married in 2007 & were planning on spending the rest of our lives together.

We became licensed foster parents in 2019.  We had a few placements & were able to adopt our son in December 2021!

Sadly James passed away in December 2021 from metastatic melanoma.  It was a 7 month journey that I never thought would be part of our story.  I never thought I would be a widow at 34 years old.  Since then, I have been trying to pick up the pieces of my life.

Some facts about me:

- I live in a super rural Ohio town.  I grew up here & I just love it.

- I grew up on a hobby farm.  We had tons of goats & other livestock.  While I loved it, I haven't carried on having livestock in my own life.  I currently have just 2 cats & a dog.  We lost our other dog in 2020 & I'm still not over it.  I really want to get chickens but I'm not sure if I'm ready for the commitment!

- I started gardening about 5 years ago & it's my favorite thing.  It has its ups & downs but I love to see what grows every year!  I'm trying to get my son into gardening but he's not very enthusiastic about it!  Haha.

- I love shopping at the thrift store!  If I had to guess, I'd say about 95% of my home decor is thrifted!  We also bought a ton of materials for our actual home remodel from the Habitat For Humanity ReStore.

- To go along with the thrifting, I also like to do what I call 'trash to treasure' makeovers.  James helped me so much with these projects.  It's so neat to see something get a beautiful transformation.

I hope you enjoy your stay here at On The Creek Blog!  You can also connect with me on social media!
