I’m Sabrina, creator of Statement Always Made. First of all, about the name. Seems weird, right? Well, I wanted something that had my initials in it, and at the time I was creating it I was not yet married but knew I would be some day. So, I took my first name, maiden name and future last name initials and came up with words that fit me. So, I’ve always been a hard worker, and tend to make an impression (statement) so hence, Statement Always Made.
What started out as making jewelry, eventually turned into accessories for girls and women, sewing, crafts and more. This was largely in part to Pinterest. I, like most of you, have been hoarding pins every since I joined. Every idea, picture, link, and article that sounded interesting ended up on a board. Eventually the pins started adding up. Of course, I am obsessive compulsive and a tiny bit (ok, a lot) anally retentive so I started re-pinning the pins to more descriptive boards. Never the less, the boards were cleaned and organized so I could find everything I was looking for, but the problem was I would forget to look for them.
That’s when I came up with the thought of a Pinterest Mission, and how this blog came about. Each week I pick a few pins and add them onto my ‘weekly’ board and try to find time to review them and make them my own. After I’m done, I blog about them so that I have them a spot for them myself. What’s great about this is that I’ve now made them my own, and hopefully improved on them.
So, join me as I write about everyday ideas to improve myself, my home, and my life. Most of my pins involve crafts, fashion, and of course-food! I hope one day soon I will get through all of my pins, however I add more and more each day- so this may never happen!!
On a personal note, I am a mom, wife, sister, and daughter (among other titles). My husband Russell and I are parents to a wonderful little girl. We live in South Dakota with our black cat named Salem (Get it=Sabrina the Teenage Witch) and our Jack Russell/Lab dog Boston (my husband loves the Boston Red Sox) and our newest puppy, Tessie (see a pattern here).
We do a lot of our house projects ourselves, and are always busy! If we aren’t working on our house, we might be vacationing, working, or enjoying time with family and friends.
I hope you enjoy this site as much as I do creating it. I love to write, and I love to do projects so this all seems to go hand in hand. Please- if you don’t like something, just walk away. There is no point to put negative comments on my page, as I will delete them. Its my site, and I can do what I want (neener, neener, boo boo). If you have a great comment, constructive criticism, or a suggestion- I hope you share them with me!! I love to improve on things, and want to know I’m helping others.
With all this being said, this site isn’t free for me to keep up, and definitely doesn’t pay my bills. To offset my costs, I do participate in ad networks, affiliate programs, and other revenue generating advertising. I wish I could say I’m making money hand over fist, but that’s not the case. It’s about enough to cover the hosting costs, and pay for a few hours of work. I try hard to make sure my links are relevant, and that you’re only being served ads that you are interested in.
Thanks for joining me here at Statement Always Made!
