About Me


Hey there!  I’m Tiffany, known to many as ‘Tee’, thanks to my youngest brother who couldn’t pronounce ‘Tiffany’ when he was little 🙂

I was born and raised in Mesa, AZ and now live in San Tan Valley, AZ in a country setting with my funny fat cat, rambunctious dogs, and beloved horses.

I love healthy living and eating, gardening, being outdoors, kids, animals, going on adventures and trips, spending time with friends and family, and whatever else tickles my fancy! 😉

I also enjoy working with my hands and have a knack for figuring out, creating and building all sorts of different fun things.  Whether I’m pulling out the drill and table saw for a project out on the farm, or dragging out my sewing machine for one of the holidays, I’m always creating something!

(Here I am working on my haunted house that I set up for Halloween for the neighborhood every year…I’m just a big kid at heart!)

    What a wonderful young lady….I found you from an article about wine bottle torches. Pictures of you caught my eye-reading about your ‘journey’ grabbed my interest…

    I’m a midwest remodeling contractor and seeing a lady that knows her way around tools is heart warming…

    I’m not quite sure how it would ever be possible but I thinking meeting you would be a joy.

    My yellow lab Henry and I share a place outside of Chicago but I grew up in a farm community and have always wanted to have a small farm but the stars haven’t aligned as yet.

    I believe that you have my email if you care to reply.

    All the Best,

    I guess my comment was moderated off so just will say thank for your tutorial on the cat enclosure. Good day, Daniel.

      Hi Dan!
      Whew, it’s been a busy week! I just got back from camping and am getting caught up on all of my emails and comments 😉
      I’m SOOO glad you stumbled on my site and saw the cat enclosure, it’s really been nice having something my kitties can go out and enjoy the outdoors without having to worry about their safety!
      Haha…I will definitely try to post more pics of my everyday stuff around here AND if you have a Facebook, make sure to ‘Like’ my page because I do a lot of daily updates there 😉


      Hoping you have a WONDERFUL day Dan!! 😉

    Hi, Searching for ideas on catios and luckily found your site. Its funny because you also posted some photos of someone from Bancroft that used your plan….Bancroft is in my area…I am in the Trent Hills on the Trent River. Anyway, you did a great job explaining and i will take photos when I am done and post them. I am closing underneath the deck for the cats…..to be continued!

    • Tee says:

      Hi Christine,
      Wow, what a small world isn’t it! So glad you found my site helpful and I know your kitties are going to love their new enclosure when you are done! Can’t wait to see the finished pics! 😉

    Hey Tee! Love your site. I found you when searching for DIY instructions to build a new tack box. I love the rustic simplicity of your design, and I think I could really build one (I’m a beginner DIYer). Then I saw your collapsible saddle rack and I fell for you! LOL There it was, the next search on my to-do list and you nailed that one too!! Of course I subscribed. Can’t wait to get started on these projects…and see what you think of next 🐎🐕🐈 :-).

    • Tee says:

      Hi Elizabeth, welcome aboard!!! Glad you found the rustic chest tutorial useful as well as the saddle rack! I’m not one for making things that are too complicated and so I figure the same goes for my readers…LOL 😉

    Hi Tiffany,

    Firstly, wow, you have a black stallion. Nothing more to say, its kinda like every man’s dream at some point. Just saw your cold fusion fogger in youtube. Its great, and economical, its very neat, shows how much you love your work. Read a few comments about improving the fog density by spacing the smoke machine and ice bucket. But, just a humble suggestion maam, if you make the inlet up top and outlet down below, you’ll have more fog, no matter the spacing in between the smoke machine and bucket. The idea is to let the smoke travel through as much ice as possible, this way it will generate huge amount of fog. Try once and let me know. I’m sure you won’t be dis-appointed.

    And once again, you are an inspiration to a lot of people maam, and also you’re living a dream out there. Good night from India.

    • Tee says:

      Thank you so much Pabitra! Actually, that’s exactly how I made my fog cooler and you are right, does work great with the inlet at the top and the outlet at the bottom 😉 Thank you so much for the comment!

    Hi Tee,

    you have already made your way to Germany now.
    Your bottle torches I found in Pinterest and here I am on your site now to say thank you for sharing this wonderful garden torch.
    This is just what I like on our farm and I have some old Siphonbottles which are perfectly suitable for these torches.
    As I love to create handmade, funny objects, I am so happy to find you here now for exchange our ideas.
    Some years ago I reconstructed an old farm in the middle of Germany and we are living our dreams with a Cafe, regular Concerts and Seminarrooms to share.
    You are very welcome to have a look : Eulenhof.eu

    Thank you again and we’ll stay in touch.
    Greetings from the other side of the planet

      Hi Jo,

      Wow, I just took a look at your website and your farmhouse is beautiful!! I wish I lived closer so I could visit! (maybe someday?) 😉 I’m so glad you enjoyed the wine bottle tiki torches, I definitely can imagine a few of them lit up around the outside of your pretty house! So happy to hear from you all the way on the other side of the world!

      • Jo Kreitz says:
