Welcome to My World

Welcome to the wonderful Life of Angst. I have been pondering for years about how to share some of my experiences with the world and never could decide on what exactly to do. So, today I have finally decided to just start a website that covers it all. I will be including everything from genealogy to gardening to knitting and more.

In today’s world, most websites are highly specialized, focusing on just one category of experiences. I just can’t do it. There are too many things that interest me. I will be adding blog posts about projects, things that interest me, and just generally my life exploring. I’m not a specialist at any one thing, so I’m not going to try to stay focused.

I will also be adding items for sale ranging from seeds to yarn, so check out the shop!


I am a mom, small business owner, and lover of all things. I have a variety of interests and obsessions and use this website as an outlet for my eccentricities. I live in Missouri on a small farm, that was originally one of the first homesteads in Laclede County. I enjoy volunteering, gardening, foraging, knitting, canning, local history research, and genealogy. I am a member of Mensa, Phi Alpha Theta, Daughters of the American Revolution, Society of Indiana Pioneers, First Families of the Twin Territories, United States Daughters of 1812, Daughters of Union Veterans, Clan MacBean, Clan Sinclair, and the list continues to grow.
