Hi, I'm Katie, the crafter, Southern cooking enthusiast, and household tip junkie behind Fun Home Things. I love sharing DIY and craft ideas, recipes, and homemaking tips that people can actually do, not just pin. Like my grandma always says, "we're casual here" and we are!

Meet my family! My husband Ryan is not only my best friend and biggest fan, but he is also a hands-on dad and an all-around great guy. We were friends back in college while attending Murray State University but didn't date until 10 years later when we reconnected on Facebook.

I'm also a proud Momma of two sweet girls. Sophie is a first grader, Emmie was born last September, and our 3rd, Jack, is due this November! Staying home with them is not only a blessing, it is a calling and I'm so glad that I have the chance to be with them everyday.

I typically blog 3-4 days a week. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to contact me at katiedrane81 (at) gmail (dot) com.
