Introducing Our New Addition

by Kortney Campbell on May 2, 2012

So, we’re really excited to introduce you to one of our newest additions – Katie (we’ll call her Katie B to limit confusion)! Kortney & Katie B became best friends in 8th grade and even lived together for a couple of years in college. We are so excited to have her here & we just know that you’ll love her! We asked her to share a few fun facts about herself & here’s what she had to say:

Hi! My name is Katie! I’m a working stay at home mom and wife – you could say that I’m living the minivan dream! I consider myself a working stay at home mom because I still work part time at a restaurant, run an eBay shop, and just opened an Etsy store as well! Even though I can do most of these things at home, juggling work with being a mom and wife means it gets a little crazy around my house to say the least!

Thrifting has always been a hobby of mine and somehow I managed to find a way to profit off of it! I run my eBay and Etsy with lovely vintage items I’ve collected over the past few years and plan to one day open my own 2nd hand store. I will also share my thrifting skills with all of you, and how to revamp your wardrobe on a budget.

I’ve been with my husband, Nic, since 2005 and last year we welcomed a beautiful baby girl into our lives. Even though Nic and I are married, we haven’t had our wedding yet. We’re currently in the planning stages & it will be happening this December (we live in Florida, remember?) Trying to plan a wedding on a budget has been tricky, but I’ll be showing you guys some of my DIY and money saving tips that have helped out so much!

My daughter Kennedy just turned one in March and I would have to say that without a doubt being a mom is the most gratifying feeling I’ve ever felt. She has a head full of hair so I love making bows and headbands to dress her up (those are some of the ideas I will be sharing here soon)! I’ve found that creating fun things myself is incredibly gratifying and A LOT cheaper than buying them at the store. Thats all I have for now. I can’t wait to share my adventures with you!

Isn’t she great? Katie B will be a frequent contributor here on Vegan Housewives, sharing all sorts of fun things – from thrifting adventures to mom life & exciting DIYs. She isn’t vegan (yet!) but she’s awesome & all of her posts will be cruelty-free!

About Kortney Campbell

I'm Kortney; a wife, natural mama and vegan in love with life, food and all things vintage! I've been vegan since December 2007, but have loved to cook & create pretty things since before I can remember. I started Vegan Housewives because I don't think you have to give up the joys of food when going vegan! I have a fondness for re-creating non-vegan recipes (especially my grandma's), making a healthier & animal friendly version so be sure to send me your favorite concoctions by clicking our "share a recipe" button - I would LOVE to veg-i-fy them!

    What part of Florida do you live? We’re in Sarasota, and I have a son that is Kennedy’s age. We’re always looking for more vegan friends.

    We (Kortney & Katie) are in St. Pete & Katie B is in the New Port Richey area. Kortney & Katie B are talking about mommy date plans though, so maybe we can pull together a mommy meet-up!
