Home About


Hi and welcome to Hometown Betty!

As you know from the title of the blog, my name is Betty, but let me give you a little background about myself.

I am a southern girl by birth, but I lived and worked on the east coast in my 20s, married a man (aka “Prof”) from the west coast, and now in my 30s, reside with our two precocious boys (aka “Piano Man and Linus”) in the beautiful Midwest. You could say we experienced life to the far edges of the U.S.

This blog is about making stuff – mostly out of paper (some fabric too).

I mix other stuff like family life, reviews, and giveaways. But it’s mainly about making stuff from my hometown and how I can share it with you in your hometown.

That is what Hometown Betty is all about.

So if you have a question about how to make something, give me a shout out on Facebook or Twitter. Ask me a question over there or comment on the blog. I can do some research, and we can collaborate and share that tutorial with everyone too.

Thanks for stopping by!

From my hometown to yours,

P.S.  In case you missed it earlier, I am the only family member who uses my true first name. Everyone else has an online alias. I still like to keep a little anonymity every now and then.

Trivia: We traveled with two kids (five and under) to 9 countries in 10 months! You can check out why it was so easy for us to travel from Cyprus. Read my Top Lists essay from Expats Blog, particularly #2 and #1.
