Hi there! I’m Shelley and I’m glad you stopped by.
Does your life often feel like one crisis after another? Do you ever feel like you’ve got a mischievous little critter that sits on your shoulder and whispers negative things in your ear? Or your little critter is running around your house creating one mess after another.
I have one of those little critters. I’ve named her Frenzy because of all the chaos she creates in my life – both inside my head and inside my house.
At Taming Frenzy you’ll find information to help you create your best life by taming that mischievous little critter. You’ll find articles on how to deal with the myriad of small details that make up daily life:
- How to save time and money
- Making your home look nice on a budget
- Getting rid of your clutter and getting organized
- Juggling responsibilities and demands
You’ll find encouragement and advice to help you navigate those big issues as well:
- Improving relationships with family and friends
- Bring more joy into your life
- Find time for yourself
I’ve found that many women struggle with having so many demands and responsibilities that they feel they’re losing themselves. I know because I’ve been there. For years I described my life as “juggling chainsaws”. I had so many different roles to play and responsibilities to manage that I felt I couldn’t drop one without serious risk to myself, my family, and those around me. It’s exhausting – both mentally and physically. That’s why my passion is to provide solutions and encouragement.
On a more personal note, I’m married and have three young adult children (Bubba, Music Man, and Butterfly). A former school teacher and administrator, I’ve recently returned to my hometown after many years of living away. I’m a bit of a political junkie and I have issues I care passionately about. I’m a huge fan of disaster movies, trashy novels (my term for anything that’s not work related), jewelry, bath products, home decorating, and anything with bubbles or that sparkles. I believe that there’s more than one way to skin a cat, that people can tell you no but they can’t kill you, and that a little vanilla in your drink makes everything better.
So grab your beverage of choice and stay awhile! You need a few minutes to chill out and relax and I’m here to help.
Where you can find me
You can find me on different social media sites but I tend to hang out the most in the private Facebook group.
I also send out a weekly email newsletter which I’d love to have you join. I promise that you won’t find me driving you crazy with a ton of emails (I happen to hate that myself!).
Finally, if you have any questions, concerns, or comments, please feel free to contact me below.
