Maybe Matilda: About Me

About Me


Hi! I'm Rachel, a Utah-based stay-at-home mom to 2 young kids (Forrest is 3, and Darcy is brand spankin' new) and wife to Jeff (a chiropractor and fitness buff). I'm an avid crocheter, voracious reader, hungry baker, inexpert DIYer, and lover of pretty things. Here in my little space on the web you'll find my crochet projects and tutorials, favorite recipes, down-to-earth and budget-friendly style, and daily real life at home with the kids (the good, the bad, and the ugly--look elsewhere for angelic mothers and their cherubic children).

You're wondering about the blog name, right? Why is it Maybe Matilda when my name is definitely not Matilda? I opened my Etsy shop while I was pregnant with Forrest, before we knew if we'd be having a boy or a girl. While I pondered what to name my shop, we were also debating baby names. I liked Matilda for a girl. My husband hated it. I figured since I'd never get to use it for a baby, I'd use it for my new shop. The blog followed, and it just made sense to me to use the shop name for the blog, too (although it has caused no shortage of confusion to readers and customers . . . whoops).
