Welcome new readers!

I’m so happy you’ve stopped by for a visit.

My name is Jamie, I’m a wife and Mom of two, located in the heart of Texas.

Jamie Sanders - Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom

I have always considered myself “crafty. ” That includes cooking, sewing, crafting, creating digitally, and photography.

My love of all things domestic started around 1992 when I became a nanny in college. The Mother I worked for handed me an old Weight Watchers cookbook, gave me a checking account, and told me to plan the menus, shop, and cook their dinners from that cookbook. She also started my sewing journey by teaching me how to hem my pants and shorts (by hand) using a needle, thread, sewing gauge, and iron.

I started Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom in 2011 when I began sewing for my two children. It’s my little spot on the web where I share my love of creating- from free sewing patterns, tutorials, and projects, to simple crafts and family-friendly recipes.

And it is my hope that some of what I share helps to inspire others to sew, cook and create!

Be sure to check out what goes on behind the scenes over on my Instagram page or see all the fun stuff I’m sharing on Facebook!

If you are looking for a way to show off what you have made with one of my sewing patterns or tutorials, I have a private Facebook group created for just that purpose. (Request to join the group here.)
