About Me

I am a Mormon/LDS/Christian stay at home homeschooling mother to 5 wonderful children. I have 2 boys and 2 girls who are still with me and one girl who passed away at age 6 in April of 2010. I am also a wife to a fabulous, supporting husband. I have a very large friendly dog, a mini pony, three horses, two llamas, bunnies, a goat, 10 chicks, and one laying hen. My nickname and pen name, Finamoon, I coined out of the two words: dolphin and moon because I love the ocean and looking at the night sky.

We've lived in Rainier, Oregon since 2006. We bought a 5 and a half acre farm in 2012 in the valley of Rainier with two houses, lean-to, chicken coop, and a barn and have been transforming it into our haven little by little. Rainier is right across the Columbia River from Longview, Washington and we are about an hour and 30 minutes drive to both Portland, Oregon and Vancouver, Washington. In April of 2016 I graduated from the Master Gardeners course in Columbia County Oregon. I love Oregon and love to blog about where I live, things to do here (especially with kids in tow), and products that are local to both Oregon and Washington.

I named my blog Eccentric Eclectic Woman because that is essentially what I am. Eccentric means unconventional, slightly strange and eclectic means deriving ideas, style, or taste from a broad and diverse range of sources. I love things that are whimsical or that are playfully quaint or fanciful, esp. in an appealing and amusing way. Some things I love and am interested in: blogging, reading, cooking, crafting, photography, cosplaying, role-playing, larping, learning about other cultures and customs, nutrition, homeschooling, homemaking, self sufficiency, permaculture, being eco-friendly, nature, gardening, herbalism, farming, homesteading, wild crafting, foraging, country and natural living, preparedness, mothering and child rearing :) I love showing off my loves on Pinterest... http://pinterest.com/finamoon/

My blog is PR Friendly. I love being in-the-know about new products. If you'd like to send me some to review I'd be happy to consider you, just email me at finamoon AT gmail DOT com
