Meet Tiff: Creative Soul, House Flipper, and Heart of On The Creek Blog

Hey Besties! 🌟✨


I'm Tiffanie, but please, just call me Tiff. Welcome to my little slice of the internet at On The Creek Blog! Here's where I blend my love for writing, blogging, photography, and being a published author with a dash of endless creativity. Multitasking? That's my middle name, as I juggle being a content creator, managing partner of my own company, and a house flipper!

Our Home Renovation Journey and Beyond

It all started back in 2015 when I began documenting our home renovation saga. My husband, James, and I transformed a foreclosure into our dream nest, full of memories and love. Our home was our canvas, and we painted a picture of creativity and DIY spirit together.

James, a carpentry, construction, and remodeling wizard, was my partner in turning rundown spaces into stunning homes.

Embracing New Chapters 

My story took a twist in our little hometown, where James and I blossomed from childhood friends to life partners in 2007. We embarked on a beautiful parenting journey as foster parents, leading to the adoption of our son in December 2021.


Tragically, in the same month, I lost James to metastatic melanoma. This profound loss at 34 made me a new mom and a widow, reshaping my path. Now, I'm navigating this new life, balancing motherhood and leading our house-flipping ventures, all while honoring the legacy of our love.

Peek Into My Life

  • My heart's anchored in my rural hometown, a community that's been my rock.
  • Growing up amidst farm life's joys, I now live vicariously through my neighbors' farms.
  • My garden is my sanctuary, a labor of love I'm eager to share with my son.
  • Thrift store hunts? That's my kind of adventure, with 95% of my home décor being thrifted finds. Our house remodels have also benefited greatly from upcycled treasures.
  • I'm passionate about turning the forgotten into fabulous, a skill James and I cherished in our 'trash to treasure' projects.


With my company, T&J Maintenance, I'm taking on the challenge of flipping houses, carrying forward our shared dream with every renovation. It's not just about revamping spaces; it's about weaving stories and memories into every home.


Thanks for dropping by! I'm excited to share my adventures in home improvement, creative projects, and life's unexpected journeys. Let's connect and grow together on this beautiful path.


Sending Love and Light from On The Creek Blog! ðŸ’–🏡
