I’m Sarah, the woman behind Simply Sarah & Simply Knit. My husband Matthew and I have been married since 2016 and we have a little girl Amelia, we usually call her Mia. Our little family moved from Vancouver to Ottawa in Jan 2018 and we are enjoying it so far.
I love dancing, doing hair & makeup, crafting, knitting, baking and cooking. All of these interest come in really handy as we are on a very frugal living situation. Since having Mia in August 2017 we have been a one income family. This is difficult but I usually enjoy the challenge of seeing how far I can stretch a dollar or reuse/repurpose things.
Simply Sarah- The blog
Simply Sarah started on youtube back in 2012. A LOT has changed since then…Ive changed since then.
The Youtube, and eventually this blog, started out as a place for hair and make up. It evolved into adding some DIY’s and some series such as ‘pinterest pass or fail’ videos. The DIY & lifestyle videos really took off and have the most amount of views and interest. Planning the wedding, becoming pregnant and having a child put all this on hold….until now!
Ive been active on Instagram and by popular request I’ve decided to reopen Simply Sarah and start doing some more DIY & frugal lifestyle videos and posts.
Simply Knit- The store
As I mention above, I love to knit! I started knitting hats and various items while Mia was cooking in my belly and while she was a newborn. It was a great way for me to still do what I enjoyed and helped pay a few bills. I have a separate Instagram and facebook for Simply knit. Feel free to check out the store in the header bar or social media accounts for more on that.
I hope you like it and stay tuned for more 🙂
