About Me

Hi! I’m Mim. So nice of you to stop by!

I live up in the foothills of the Front Range of Colorado with an endlessly patient boyfriend, a couple of half-time kids, and one of the dumbest dogs you’ve ever met.

I’m enthusiastic about a lot of different things, and I share them all here at It’s New and Different!

Mountain Living – the ups and downs of life at 7,800 feet

I love living up in the mountains! There’s no cell phone service, bears roam the neighborhood, and water boils at 197° – but the view is worth it.

Making – I’ll try any DIY project

I love to craft things, especially when I can reuse, upcycle, and restore thrifty treasures.

Cooking – Good food is worth the effort

When the nearest grocery store is a half hour away, you’ve got to plan ahead…

Hooping – These aren’t your kid’s hoops

Modern hoop dancing uses oversized hoops that are much easier to use than those lightweight plastic hoops of your childhood. If I can do it, anyone can!

Adventure – If it’s new and different, it’s an adventure!

Adventure can be found every day…if you know where to look.

Kids – They’re not mine…but they kinda are.

I didn’t expect to be a stepmother, but I love the way my life worked out. 🙂

Soapbox – I’ve got an opinion, and I’m not afraid to use it!

I believe in personal responsibility, the value of hard work, and the potential to grow each and every day.
