Hi, I’m Eva Marie.  Let me tell you a little bit about myself.  I grew up on Long Island in New York in a town called Commack.  I always had a love for anything creative and was drawn in that direction.

After High School, I met the love of my life who has been my husband for the past 38 years.  We have 2 children, which have given us 6 grandchildren.  It is true what they say about being a grandmother, it is the best, no doubt!!!!

Over the years, I’ve hosted birthday parties, anniversary parties, showers, graduation parties and communion parties  for crowds of 50 – 100+ people.   I love preparing the menu then putting it all together.      

Now, my life is a little different.  I have a day job, but love blogging about all the things I love.  Cooking, Crafting, Gardening and Traveling

I hope you stop by often to see what new adventures I’ve been on in the Travel section and what great food I find along the way.

In the Craft section, I will give good ideas to brighten up your home and hand-made gift ideas to give to your family and friends.

Gardening is an adventure in itself.  I will show you what my gardens look like season to season.   Good or bad, you’ll see it.

In the cooking section, I have lots of family recipes passed down from generation to generation.  I also have tried and true recipes that you can always count on in a pinch. 

As The Rustic Heart goes on, I will add more and more categories of recipes and crafts that you tell me you want to see. 

I hope you’ll take this journey with me and grow with The Rustic Heart.

Talk to you soon,

Eva Marie
