About The Jammie Girl

I’m sharing recipes and tips on being frugal while polishing up my photography and creative writing skills. There’s an occasional spiritual discussion, a book review here and there, and probably more pictures of my dogs than are strictly necessary. It’s part chat with a girlfriend over a glass of sweet tea, part conversation overheard in the grocery store checkout line, and part Thanksgiving dinner with the crazy branch of the family.

I’m a life-long Southerner who can’t live without sweet tea and comfort food.  I read constantly and am always on the lookout for a new author.  I have a lot of great decorating and craft ideas that I don’t have the patience to follow through on.  Given the choice, I’ll pick a nap over a workout any day of the week.  I believe all dogs, no matter how large, should be spoiled shamelessly and allowed to sleep in the bed.  I believe children should be hugged and told “I love you so much” as often as possible, no matter how old they get.  Family members who are eccentric should be enjoyed for their entertainment value, but family members who are mean should not be invited to visit.

I’ve been blogging since June 2009.  It’s cheaper than therapy. I worked full time for twenty-five years as a cardiology nurse until multiple herniated discs, four neurosurgeries, and chronic pain made that impossible. Now I write and battle Chronic Pain and Depression. #invisibleillnesses

I love Twitter, Instagram, and Pinterest with all my heart and try to limit my time on Facebook as I’m a recovering Farmville addict.  I have a cookery ebook for sale at Smashwords.  Or if you prefer it’s also available at Amazon or Barnes and Noble.

  1. Have you read Lisa Wingate? If not, start with her Texas trilogy – Texas Cooking, Lone Star Cafe, Over the Moon at the Big Lizard Diner. Read in order. Thank me later. She’s AWESOME (and clean). Oh, and you probably have to get her first book on ebay.

  2. I like your “elevator pitch”. It gives me a good picture of what your blog is about, without overloading me with details. I’d say you’re probably more of a “memoir blogger” rather than a “niche blogger” – a little of this and a little of that (which is WAY ok!). 🙂 So glad to be doing this challenge together!

  3. Love your intro. You’ve inspired me to stop procrastinating and get writing. I don’t know why I find it so hard to write about “me”, it seem to be the one topic that causes serious ‘writer’s block”?

    1. Do you have a friend who knows you well who can help out? A friend of mine was totally stumped on her “About Me” page and a wrote her three different versions, some silly, some serious. It pushed her in the right direction!

  4. Recovering Farmville addict. lol Had to block Farmville because some of my friends blew up my Facebook with requests. It seems adorable at the outset, but when I went to their walls and they contained nothing but posts about needing help on the farm, yuck. Thank goodness you got out!
    I love that you rant online so your husband doesn’t have to hear it. I’m not sure how my boyfriend feels about my blog yet, except that he is supportive. It’s been less than a week. I suppose I should give it time. ♥

      1. Less than a week with the blog. One year with the boyfriend. Thanks again! ♥ And, for the record, I see tow things in my future that I don’t currently have, 1) a smart phone and 2) a laptop.
        Got to get up to speed…being tied to a desk really is cramping my style.

  5. I’m so thrilled to have stumbled upon your page! Thanks to you, my fiance and I experienced a miracle! I’ll explain in a nutshell…
    I’ve known him 3 yrs & he never sleeps well; wakes every 30-60 min. Last Sunday he took me to a Catholic Church & I being new to it all decided to research a Saint to help sleep…that’s where you come in. Jump up and do a jig sister (or take a nap. Lol) cuz Elijah did come through! I prayed at 3:30am and slept til 6am! I stayed up all night to make sure! I cried and laughed and thanked Elijah! It was truly miraculous! Thank you!!!

    1. That’s fantastic! Thank you so much for letting me know. I’m making bookends for my grand-daughter (due in April) with cute polymer clay saints on each one. St. Elijah will have a place of honor – LOL! There is nothing better than a good night’s sleep!
