About Crazy For Cloth

Originally from a small farm town in Indiana, I am currently working part-time as a certified guidance counselor in the greater Cincinnati area. I am a Christian, the wife of my best friend and the mother of an amazing daughter that keeps us all on our toes!

Crazy for Cloth is basically me and my opinions on cloth diapers, "green" products, and living for Christ. I grew up in a loving household where, if you could use something over again, you did. We lived in a rural area about an hour away from any major city, so our way of living was not much of a choice. After getting my Master's degree in Counseling Psychology and marrying my college sweetheart, I have been a counselor for 7 years. However, my passion came to me just a little over a year ago in the form of a tiny, beautiful baby daughter.

Now that I am a mom, I have gotten a bit crazy (according to some) about doing my part to save the environment. Cloth diapering is probably the most radical change I have made in our household, although my husband "pulled the plug" on my idea to unplug the T.V. when not in use. :-)

Those who have seen my system have been impressed most of the time. I will always have the naysayers, but those who have been awed or inspired by my cloth diapering have suggested that I teach others about it and start up an informative website. This is what gave me the idea for crazyforcloth. I hope that through this blog, I might be able to answer any questions about cloth diapers or other products as well as be an inspiration to others by sharing the joy I have in simple living.
