Hi! My name is Rachel Paxton, and I have been a freelance writer and the webmaster of this web site for more than 18 years. I am the mother to five children, ages 28 to 6. I have a BA degree in English and business.

I love homeschooling my children and finding new things to write about every day, from crafts, to cooking and canning, to gardening. My favorite hobbies are reading and scrapbooking. I love Pinterest! Follow my boards on Pinterest to see what I have been up to. You can also follow me on Facebook.

To contact me, or for interview and/or freelance writing requests, you can contact me at rachel.paxton@gmail.com.

Throughout the years I have written hundreds of home- and family-related articles. In 2013 I started publishing a series of ebooks available for Amazon Kindle.
