My name is Clotilda Jamcracker. My husband and I paid off all of our debt through hard core saving. I would like to share with the world just how to find the money needed to pay off debt. I am also interested in hearing frugal ideas from other people.
I got rid of the debt in my life and decided to get rid of my grass as well. The backyard is virtually grass free and is now in the first stages of being a food forest. I have lots of gardening advice and would to help others learn about gardening and I am also open to take gardening advice from others.
I have a novel that I am writing posted on my website and I would like some input from anyone willing to read it.
I have two amateur children’s books on amazon.com
The apple tree by Lewis Harvey
The Tale of Esperanza by Lewis Harvey

You’re weird and scary. Thanks. I also like to gardening and my grass I can’t get rid of so I’m just letting it grow but now I can’t find my dog because he’s short legged, as am I.

I wish I had a publisher…not so sure happy guy is the correct epithet but I’m trying to live up to it anyway. What’s your book called?

Awesome! Maybe so!
Thanks for liking my post “The Muse…or whoever…has struck again!” Your site is a little hard to navigate. Where is your novel? What is is about?
So nice to meet you! Thanks for liking, “10 Reasons Why I am the Best Mom.” We, too, are working on paying down debt… but we’re not frugal so it’s a long process. :>
I look forward to following you; LOVED the June posts that I read.
Hey Clotilda~~ Thanks for liking my post on Korea’s funky baby-making ad campaign 🙂 Your objectives are awesome— especially that food forest! I’m jealous—I live in an apartment and am making do with a little patio garden of herbs and succulents 🙂
I look forward to reading your posts. And here’s a link to one of my own “frugal” projects:
Since you’re a gardener, you could also recycle the coffee grounds, especially for stuff that likes acidic soil.
Hi, I just wanted to say thank you for visiting my blog. This is a truly unique blog that you have! All the best,

hey thanks for your little like on my blog
Hey, thanks for liking my blog. We recently paid off our last bit of debt (our car), and now enjoy getting a paycheck that’s ours! We’re just starting out gardening (by starting out, I mean figuring where to plant what, and when). It’s a work in progress!
Hi, thanks for visiting my blogs, love your illustrations and look forward to following your stories in more detail. Also loving the frugal living, tips and will be checking out tips for a more foodie garden 🙂
hi there thanks a bunch for hitting the LIKE button 🙂 I appreciate it…. I appreciate your blog “Love” your drawings… I have used you as an inspiration to my 16 yr old who I have been trying to get her to write & illustrate books for ever:) you also have inspired me to draw again … it has been literally 2 yrs since I have picked up a pencil and drew something or even painted 😦 either way I look forward to reading on your garden (as I have one myself) which is also a work in progress 🙂
I bought some how to draw manga books from Michaels and I also look up rosemaling art, thai art, and scandinavian folk art on bing images and I just copy them. I color all my drawings with colored pencil. It’s cheaper than an art class. Oh. I also look up how to draw videos on you tube. I draw with all my kids. They have all written books. Its a great hobby that’s also a lot cheaper than soccer class. Have fun!
Hi – I like your style, and am a newbie gardener. Any favorite resources or tips?
I’m a mad gardener in the Alice in Wonderland Mad Hatter sort of way. Don’t listen to me. I might make you go insane. I would recommend looking up Geoff Lawton and Food Forest on Youtube. I’ve been trying to grow things since I was knee high to a grashopper and I would say that he has the best advice ever because he uses something called Permaculture. Permaculture is permanent agriculture. It a self sustaining gardening method in which you can create a whole ecosystem. It’s the most amazing thing that I have ever seen in my life. I ordered his DVD on Soils and it just blew my mind away. This guy created a food forest in the desert by building up the soil and creating a way for the ground to absorb water. After a period of a few years, the rain started falling on the area and they no longer needed man made irrigation. I took pictures of my garden this spring and posted a few tips on my website. http://www.clotildajamcracker.com. Good luck with your garden. It’s my goal in live to spread the word about food forests. One day I am going to buy a huge piece of land and make a giant food forest. But right now, it’s just a tiny suburban plot in the Republic of Texas.
Awesome. I live in Asheville, NC – permaculture is super popular here!
Thanks for liking my blog. I love yours!! I grow loads of my own veg, organic but not forest gardening. I’m interested in permaculture and try to follow some of the principles, but my garden is more traditional (organic) because I can manage it that way.. I also write for children. I’ll be stopping by and keeping in touch. Have you found Rhonda’s blog at http://down—to—earth.blogspot.co.uk/? She’s Australian and writes about frugality and simple living. I don’t contribute but I do read regularly. Will try to put some gardening stuff on my blog, keep meaning to, time runs away …. Best wishes, Amanda.
we enjoy reading and looking at your work! thank you!

I have nominated you for One Lovely Blog Award, please check the post here http://notesflow.wordpress.com/2012/06/22/one-lovely-blog-award/
I recently started my first blog on the witness to my family’s lifestyle change. I noticed that you have liked several of my posts. I appreciate you reading them! You are my most interesting reader thus far! I was wondering what tips you have on becoming debt free and learning to live with less or “need” less. We depend on two incomes because of debt but I also know we could get more “thrifty” and I want to know how.
Thanks a lot for giving my blog a read. I’ll be sure to read all your posts!
Hey really good advice for people these days! If we all used less and wasted less there would be less landfills on this planet.
Who would have thought one can mix frugality with gardening? You made it work. 🙂 Great job and keep up the good work 😀
Thanks for popping by my blog, and what a treat to find your as well!
I’ll be back for sure–
Hi, hey thanks for liking my latest post ‘Happy Birthday Ty’. I love your blog, it is going to take me a few visits to get through it all, oh and the drawings are really cool. 🙂
Thanks for liking my post and checking out my blog–www.doogen.wordpress.com–and I love your thrifty tips too! Looking forward to reading more!
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’ll be stopping back to check out some of your posts and frugal ideas. This blog seems like its right up my alley. 🙂
Great blog concept! And thanks for stopping by and following by blog. I LOVE the concept of frugality and it’s a dream for my husband and I to be debt free as well. Good job, you guys! And best wishes for continued success – hope you reach thousands of people through your writings.
Your blog seriously has me LOL’ing for a number of reasons: 1) I lived in Utah…until you’ve lived in Utah you don’t even know cheap! Not to say you haven’t reached epic levels of fantastic cheapdom (cos you have in the best way possible), but I’m just sayin…cheap is THE way of life there. 2) I think in a very similar, not necessarily linear way. Everything reminds me of a story…then that reminds me of a story…which then reminds me I’m driving on the freeway, and I need to stop thinking about stories. Anyway…great work.
“Never give money to the poor and avoid as many social obligations as possible that waste your precious time and don’t directly benefit you” – I love this! 🙂 Infact that entire post was awesome, and thank you for visiting my page also 🙂
Hi there, thanks for liking my television post which seems feeble and immature compared to what you write! But thanks again and I’ve had a read through your blog and love it. Definitely worth a follow and a good few visits sitting with a cuppa 🙂
I wish there was a way for students to disappear their debts! I don’t even want to think about the money I’m going to owe after 4 years in the UK higher education system :S
Hey thanks for checking out my blog 🙂
Thanks for stopping by, will be spending some time on the blog here today. Good stuff – J.
Thanks for stopping by and liking my blog post. You have a very interesting blog here, once I started reading I couldn’t stop. Good luck with your novel and congrats on living debt free, I’m looking forward to hearing about your food forest too!
Thank you for passing by, I love the idea of gardening, something I look forward to when I finally buy my farm in the future.
THanks for seeing my blog! Your blog is really nice!
Watching the TEACHING video on pasta making – you are awesome making this with young kids all around . . I think it’s brilliant! The comments on learning Japanese or Mandarin or listening to music you enjoy are great . .and the video operator – videographer is brilliant, as is the “get the cat out of the toilet” comment. Family life is brilliant! (We have a family of 6, now adult, children, and involving them in the away you have is engaging, disarmingly honest, and a load of fun). Great posts ! David.
I have only recently began blogging – and I have hundreds of videos, both professional and fun family ones as resources to use. . . after watching your cooking one on pasta making I am going to add one of my cooking ones, with 2 teenage sons helping, cooking Mars Bar Muffins. Thanks for your comments on my Bringing Up The Rear Video. David.
Hi, Thanks for the like! I’m undertaking a new adventure in my blog, moving in from my regular creative writing and word smithery. I’ve enjoyed reading through a few of your posts and look forward to more.
thanks for dropping by and liking my blog 🙂 will be checking back for some frugal ideas! 🙂
Hello there! Thanks for stopping by my blog and giving it a like.
I was reading through some of your stuff. You’re really a great writer.

Hey! Thanks for visiting Politics for Dogs. Will be back to get advice on living debt free. I’ve done the complete opposite. Regards, Cap’n Crusty.
Thanks for liking my daycation post. I thank you for stopping by and enjoyed reading some of your blog.
Hi Clotilda, and thanks for stopping by my blog. I love your blog theme, and wonder if you have heard of either Steve Diggs or Dave Ramsey? Both of these guys helped my wife and I become debt free. Can’t say our success with gardening has seen the same success, but maybe that’s why I found your blog to follow. I look forward to it.
Keep on keeping on.
I haven’t heard of Steve Diggs, but my husband found Dave Ramsey on the radio one night and forced me against my will into paying off debt. It was horrible at first, but I found a copy of the Tightwad gazette and made some fun out of it. I washed ziploc bags and learned how to cook and sew and do all sorts of things like find interesting ways to avoid spending money. It’s fun.
Haha, very neat. I was going to recommend those two guys if you hadn’t heard of them. Steve Diggs has written a good book called, “No Debt, No Sweat” that really helped us. I figured it would be some content worth posting/reviewing on your blog if you were to get your hands on it.
Keep on keeping on.
thank you so much for the like! i love your blog idea! i also live debt free now! it was very difficult, but its such a wonderful feeling
Thank you for the likes. I like your writing and will follow with interest.
I too am paying off debts – can’t wait until that’s over!
I might be writing a book someday…i’ll have to check those books out!
Thought I’d pop in and thank you for the ‘like’ on my post Courage Wears Many Faces… hope to see you back again sometime… thanks again!
Hey, Clotilda! Thanks for the ‘like’ on our recent post. I was just reading your blog and it’s entertaining, adorable and definitely full of life. Since you plan to garden, have you thought about growing Aloe Vera? Visit our webpage, http://www.newyorkcaribnews.com to read an article about it! Again, thanks, and we hope to see you back soon.
Love the idea of debt-free living and blogging about it. Wish I could say I am there but… am working on it. Thanks for stopping by My Hmmm Collection and clicking the Like button.
Hello, there. Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post. I find your blog to be most entertaining. You are certainly interesting and I look forward to reading more.
relax your mind Clo.
Thanks for visiting my blog. I actually suck at blogging and couldn’t figure out how to answer you. But I like this post, so this seems like a good place to reply. With the exception of the apartment we just bought (NOT paying it off makes more sense at this point), we are also debt free, thanks entirely to the maniacal spending and saving habits of my wife (handling money is another thing I suck at). And I began container gardening this year, with mixed result (I do know what I can change before next summer).
You mentioned that I “should go see what they’re up to. Maybe you’ll like their blog as much as they liked yours!” Do you mean at the Zeitgeist movie site?
Thanks again for the visit,
Thanks for liking my blog post. I’ve enjoyed reading through yours too! We aren’t debt free yet, but we are credit card free and plan to stay that way. I look forward to reading more of your blog posts.
Clotilda, thank you for stopping by and “liking” my blog on The Wrestling Match this morning! Your blogs are interesting and funny and I’ve enjoyed reading them! God Bless!

Hi Clotilda – Thanx for the ‘like’ of my blog post on parables. I spent a long time going thru your blog and web site; pretty cool stuff. I hope your books do well and you can splurge once in a while and forgo frugality . . . just a little. God bless.
Hi! Thanks for the like, I have to say that while reading some of your posts I was lost(in a good way)

thanks for stumbling upon, love your posts, totally following ❤
Hello, thank you for looking at my blog, just had a look at yours, I haven’t quite seen anything like this one just yet (pretty new to the blogging thing), love the illustrations. This line in particular ‘Blessed are the weirdos. For they shall learn the art of facial expressions.’ from your recent post was class.
Thanks for the ‘like’ 🙂 God knows I could use some help getting out of debt…
Hi! Thanks for the like 🙂
Your blog is something to be proud of, for sure! You’re my first follow!
Thanks for the “like” and the visit! Your posts are well-written and have a certain fresh frankness about them which I admire.
Also, good job on the no debt thing. I just finished school so I’m swimming in it right now, but I’ve promised myself not to incur any more! (hopefully ever, but at the least until I get my student loans paid off!)
For the Giving Tree Parody “Great Wave Off Kanagawa” reference, I award Gryffindor one million points.
Thanks for visiting my blog!
Thanks for stopping by “Unwalled” again and liking my post “Tonight I thank God”……I love your style of art……it seems perfect for illustrating children’s books……..not everyone can do that!
Thanks for stopping by our blog and liking the latest blog! Much appreciated! 🙂
Thanks Clotilda, I like you too! 🙂
Very interesting ideas in this blog. Keen for more!
Thank you very much for visiting my fledging blog and liking one of my posts. I really appreciate that. As you may have noticed I am rather new to it all. I am now going to look around here a bit more as I like what I see so far.
Thanks for visiting my blog! I love gardening as well :-). We didn’t rip out the whole back yard, but a third of it. I just keep digging up more space and planting more things. It is so satisfying to eat food that you picked only an hour before! Way to get out of debt, I am still on that journey myself, what a journey!
Thanks for visiting ‘Whispering Sweet Nothings” Appreciating all the good ideas, advice and humour you bring to the worlds with your blog. Keep at it! 🙂
Hi there, thank you for finding lollipops and razorblades . . . and liking it. This blog is so freaking great, I can’t wait to read more. Be well.
Thanks for visiting my blog! Yours is fascinating! I’m 50% of the way to getting out of debt and so glad to hear there is a light at the end of my tunnel. 🙂
Thanks for visiting Keeping up with Carol! I love the story about the boys you grew up with! This is what I do to be frugel – 1) When we order a pizza, I have it cut into 16 slices, that way people think they’re eating more, when we’re actually letting it stretch. 2) When we go to a fast food drive thru and plan to go home and eat the food, we order soda with no ice – we can add the ice at home and that way we get a little more soda! 🙂
Clotilda, thanks for reading “My Musical Virus.” It took me a month to get the memories put together chronologically. Thanks again. It is all a true story.
I have noticed that you have liked some of my “business opportunity posts” (Forever Living Aloe Vera) Would you be interested to join my team?
Please contact me through my website and we can discuss further! You will find my email address there as well. Believe its a great opportunity.
Will be waiting for your email!
Thank you for liking my post….I deleted it after you liked it because I had already posted it a few weeks earlier. But, thank you anyhow!! I love your blog!! I am headed over to your site now to check out your novel. And children’s books!! How cool. Looks like we have a lot in common. I am working on a novel and one day I would love to put out a few children’s books!! Oh, and getting out of debt is the way to be. I commend you and your husband both!!! 😉
Thank you so much for liking my post! I love what I’ve read of yours so far. Looking forward to more 🙂
Thanks for dropping by my place. I like your stories, especially with the pics

Thanks for visiting my blog and liking posts for Through the Panes.
Hey Clotilda thanks for visiting and liking my post! Looking forward to reading your blog… debt free free freedom – gotta love it. We share the joy. Also have turned our lawn into garden and forest (well… okay, not quite forest, but we like to think of it that way)…
Thank you for reading my blog. You have a creative spirit, keep it going!
I enjoy your sense of humor! Thanks for liking my post “Leaving our Kid with a Stranger….”. Keep blogging!
id be interested in hearing the ways you got out of debt 🙂
Love love LOVE your posts! Can’t wait to read more. Thanks for liking my posts, too!
you have a very interesting style about you! i have really enjoyed the posts I read. Thanks for stopping by my blog on genealogy. I have another, self-helpy-journaly sort of a blog also: oneyearsjourney.wordpress.com (that’s now on it’s second year…) I enjoy your advice on debt-free living… we have been working on it for so long, I will look into some of your tips and see if I can get the hubby on board! Thanks!
Thank you for liking my post: “Friday Free For All: Random Thoughts.” It seems like we have two things in common–getting out of debt and gardening.
Oh, Oh, oh, and don’t forget blogging.
Dear Jam Cracker Lady,
Please get this whole blog published so I can more easily read it whilst on the loo.
Space Giraffe (?!)
Dear God Almighty, I’m cracking up. Love your comment. Yes, thank you for your great idea. I was thinking of publishing my blog and calling it The Book of Madness, but maybe I should call it The book of the Toilet. Perhaps. I’ll have to change all the names and figure out how to replace the yearbook pictures. Hmm. And I’ll have to get an umbrella policy with my insurance company just in case someone takes me to court. And I might have to book a few tickets to Egypt just in case someone tries to hunt me down and kill me for my slanderous evil deeds, but what they hey.
Thank you for liking my blog post. I congratulate you about getting out of debt. In these times, such a great and important accomplishment.
Thanks for checking out my website. I like the philosophy of yours as well. After an accident several years ago, I decided to close the credit cards and hurry up and pay off the car. I got sick of writing check after check after check every month. Other than student loans, I am debt free as well, and I love it!
Can you tell me, how did you find my website? I’ve been with WordPress for a few months now, but am dreadfully behind the times as to how to connect with others. I do not have (or want) a Facebook page. A WordPress website is all I want. People keep liking my posts, but I don’t know how they found me, since they are strangers.
I wish I could be debt free! That’s essentially the one thing I truly aspire to be. How long did it take you and your husband to pay everything off, if you don’t mind me asking?
We had $5,000 in studen loans, $30,000 in car debt, an Old Navy Credit card with $200 on it, $1,000 for a Rainbow Vaccuum Cleaner, $1,800 for the Orkin Exterminators, and $101,000 for the mortgage. I believe it only took us a year or maybe 9 months to pay off all of it, except for the house.
I bought a copy of the Tightwad Gazette and tried every money saving tip in there. I dried all of my clothes on hangers and over the sides of the doors. (It saves a dollar a load). I made all my own bread and other foods from scratch and I never bought chips or junk food or convenience food and we never ate out. I wasn’t really on board with the idea of paying off debt, but I just got it over with. It was kind of fun once I got the hang of it.
An interesting thing happens when you start to pay off debt and move forward financially, money just seems to come out of the woodwork. My husband got a raise and a promotion and a huge bonus that year. We also got some stock awards cashed in that we used to pay off debt. At the time, I think my husband made about $75,000 a year.
The next year, we sold the house and moved to the Seattle area. And then we were completely debt free. We still had to pay rent though.
Good luck. It’s easier if you just go hard core and get it over with. I hate it when things just drag on.
Great info. Very helpful 🙂 This is the kind of info I’m thinking about for the book I emailed you about. Are you still renting or have you bought a house now in Seattle? Just wondering? Getting to know you! Mark
Not to sound star-struck but how in the world are you able to get so much traffic? Am I missing something here?
By the way, AWESOME blog…

Hi, thanks for checking out my blog post. Your’s is certainly colorful and eye catching.
Thought I’d join the bloggy group hug and give my thanks too. As I was reading your stuff it felt like I was spending time with someone I am fascinated by, but slightly scared they are going to get me in trouble at the same time. I’m sure that’s what you were going for : ). The prose style reminded me a bit of Kurt Vonnergut.
Keep it up.
Thanks for liking my thinkinganddreaming.ca. You’re so amazingly creative it’s hard to believe – and so funny at the same time. And a bonus: you advised me to prune basil! Thank you so much for that! And I wish I’d had you to read when I was raising my kids 🙂
Hi, Thanks for stoping by my blog. I can not deny I liked your pretty much. Finding interesting and authentic ideas is always something that surprises me. Thanks a lot…
Huzza! You liked my post! Thank you. Thank You. Thank you! I saw you liked my post, and I wanted to thank you personally. If you have feedback, from love or hate, to just a string of expletives, and you wouldn’t mind hitting me with your thoughts, I would love to see them. Thank you again and have an amazing day.
Great work with ‘The Tale Of Esperanza’! Someday, I’ll start drawing again.
Thanks for hitting ‘Like’ on my post 🙂
Fantastic blog Clotilda. Like the dawdles too.
Hi! Thanks for visiting ‘The Teenage Jane Austen’ and liking Chapter One of ‘The Chronicles of Crazar!’ It means a lot to know that people are interested in what I am writing 🙂
thanks for the like — best with the food forest.
living debt free is the way to go ! i am just starting in the direction !! i dont have greenthumbs though but as my unlce says that is my contribution to society by way of a flourishing industry of horticulture !
haha! love this. If only you were a first time flat dweller like me, then you could give advice on that!?
Hi Clotilda thanks for visiting my blog and liking my most recent post. I am still new to this, but I find your blog very humourous and interesting. I’ll check out your novel in the coming weeks.
Hey, thanks for stopping by my blog! My husband and I are on the road to being debt-free through scrimping and saving, and it is quite a journey! Best of luck! 🙂
thanks for visiting my blog 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my blog! I’m definitely enjoying yours too 🙂
Thanks for the visiting my blog. And I’m so glad with you’re being debt free ^__^
Keep fighting for everything 🙂
Thank you, I actually left a bunch of debt in the states while I came down here for my internship in Punta Arenas, Chile. I arrived June 14, and will be here until March 2013. Now I have emails left and right saying please pay, please pay. My pay is not much at alll, but I am living the dream in Patagonian and absolutely love what i am doing. Do you have any suggestions on what to do about debt, try and pay minimum payments, ect?
The longer you put off paying debt the bigger it gets. Paying off debt is no fun. Doing without the things you love so you can be rid of debt is painful and horrible. I only did it because someone made me do it. That’s really the only reason. It’s very nice to be on the other side, now. If you want no debt, then just don’t buy anything. Only pay off the debt until it’s all gone. Get it over with as fast as possible. It’s less painful that way.
Thank you for stopping by my blog and liking my current post, Sorry it wasn’t more upbeat! 🙂
Thanks for liking my post. I’m going to start a section on sustainable living and crafts on my (very young) blog soon. Please stop by again some time…
Thank you for the visit. Would you or someone you know be interested in an android app?
Thank you again

Hey, I just wanted to let you know that I really enjoy reading your blog, and so I nominated you for this award!
i just wanted to say thank you for sharing your beautiful work. i can’t seem to get enough of your extraordinarily wonderful artwork and your exquisite words, they make me grin… a lot. you got a great mind.
looking forward to reading many more posts!
Thanks for the like! Your blog’s pretty awesome I daresayyyyy
First: I love your name! It’s really unique! =D
Second: Thanks for the like on my post, I appreciate you stopping by and I’m glad you liked it.
Third: Awesome blog!
Hi — Thanks for visiting my blogs and liking my posts. I’m impressed with what you have built and are building with your sites and posts. And I just might need an illustrator for a kids’ literacy book I am developing. Cheers!
Thank you muchly for liking my post, though I JUST edited it because I accidently hit “post” a wee bit prematurely. I love what I’m reading so far in your blog, and hats off to you for paying off debt in today’s world! :]
Thank you for visiting my blog, you’re work is inspirational!
Thanks for visiting my blog. Yours is very funny!
Hey, thanks for visiting my blog! Going car-free is an excellent step towards debt-free living. I love that you have no grass. I long for that day. Cheers!!
Thanks for stopping by, Clotilda Jamcracker : )
Hi Clotilda! Thanks for stopping by and visiting my blog 🙂
You are so funny and I always love your offbeat posts. I for one would love to read what you are working on and give feed back, though I can’t find it on the site.. I’ve always done non fiction writing but recently have started exploring fiction writing myself. Thanks for the laughs!
Hey wow. Thanks. I got the whole book finished and handed over to my friend the Drama Teacher who claimed to be an awesome editor. Then I looked at all the corrections that she thought I should make….and then I just wanted to cry. Now I think it’s absolutely terrible and I think I have to re write it, and I’ve already re wrote it three times now. She told me the dialogue is hard to read and ug. That’s when I stopped reading. Maybe I’ll repost it on my website. I could really use some help with this one. My writing skills are terrible.
I don’t know your friend….and I’m sure she means well…but what I’m learning is that when most new writers let non writer friend’s ‘edit’ their work…plummeting self esteem and the urge to pitch projects inevitably follows. I have heard some stories! Yikes!
I don’t think your writing skills are terrible! You write funny pieces….and they are addictive! You have an intriguing perspective and I can’t help but think you’d have funny imaginative stories to tell. If that’s the case….then all the other stuff…it’s just polish. I went to my first writer’s conference and left so uplifted. I was thinking my stuff was crap and was told that all writer’s originally write crap with a couple of promising bits thrown in. It’s 10% story and 90% rewriting.
Let me know. 🙂
Thanks for the inspiration. I have to be able to get over my fear of rejection. I need some peace and quiet to sit down and re write. I will have more time when the kids are all back in school. I could use getting in a writers group. There just doesn’t seem to be enough hours in the day to do everything that I’d like to do.
Hey Clotilda! thanks for liking my post. you’ve got a really interesting blog here, made me crack up :]
Thank you. Everyone should go to your blog now. Your blog is so amazing! rantsramblesrages.wordpress.com
Thank you! i’m glad you think so :]
Hello! Thanks for reading my blog. I like your posts – keep writing!
Hi there! Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m reading your posts. I’d be happy if you visit my website^^ Thanks you!
Hello. Please forgive my tardiness, but I took too short trips and have lots track of keeping up with my blog stuff. I stopped by to (finally!) thank you for liking one of my recent posts. I always get a kick out of it, and I appreciate it. So—thank you. 🙂
Hey! Thank you very much for liking my recent post “Double Rainbow”. Glad I found your website. I’m a writer myself and it’s always great to read other peoples blogs. I’m also following your blog now. -Have a GREAT day! 🙂
I like your nautilus gravatar, I think I might just have to draw that one.
Thank you for dropping by the Peninsula Times again and hitting us with a like
I want to get rid of all of our grass for a garden, but my husband is not too keen on it. I’m enjoying your blog! Thanks for stopping by mine. =)
It was my husband’s idea to have a garden instead of grass. He didn’t want to water the grass. He thought it was a waste of water, but I didn’t want to just have a dead looking ugly yard. Then I found some people who replaced their grass with garden on You tube. Then I kind of went crazy. I wouldn’t recommend it. It’s very time consuming and I think it’s made me crazier than I already am.
Interestingly enough, , I somehow started a gardening trend in my neighborhood. Gardens are popping up all over the block.
Well either way, I think its brilliant! So much water is wasted on grass that I barely ever walk on. It would be so nice to pluck food from it instead. Although I can imagine the hard work it must be!
Good Evening.!! I guess you have figured it out by now, but anyway I have sent a little award your way. The One Lovely Blog Award. You may already have one or more, but I think you need another one.!! http://wp.me/p2xFBT-4q
Hi, Thanks for the like, your blog indicates that you have the courage to confront the fear of judgement and to listen to that inner voice. Some call it inspiration!
you have the courage to confront the fear of judgement and to listen to that inner voice. Some call it inspiration!
Thanks. I was told that I shouldn’t listen to the voices in my head.
I have been recapping on all the new posts… I’ve had trouble with my Reader. Love your blog… whether they are true stories or not… it matters not to me… love every one of them! :-p
Love & Light,
Thanks for liking our blog post! Looks like we have somethings in common: debt free living and sustainable living 🙂
Hi! Thanks for dropping by. Your writing cracks me up!! 🙂 You had me in stitches! laughing too loud in the middle of the night is not advisable….might just wake everyone up.
Coffee, can’t live without coffee! Though I am trying….
And who the h… is Dotty?
I like your writing style. It is really fun.
Hey! Thank you so much for liking my stuff! Hope to read more of what you write. I really like your work!
Thanks for visiting my blog. I love your style of writing! I’ll be back often.
Hi, Clotilda: I appreciate that you seem to LIKE every post I write and I am sorry that the fact I write every day has kept me from spending much time here – or on any other blog, for that matter. But what really mystifies me is this – what draws you to my blog? I read some of your posts and though I totally appreciate the attitude, we have very different world views. So I wonder why daily posts about the Bible interests you. Would love to hear back! Holiday
…that would be “interest you” – it’s singular. Oops for the grammatical booboo.
I enjoy your blog so much I’ve nominated you for the “One Lovely Blog Award”. You don’t have to accept it, but it’s kind of fun. You can check out the rules here:
Thanks for liking my blog posts – I love reading yours, my fave so far the crazy grasshoppers and garden karma. Always fun to see clotilda updates come into my inbox 🙂
I have been inspired by your blog and have nominated you for the “Very Inspiring Blogger Award”! Check out the rules here:
Hi! Thanks for checking into the NotionalYogini and liking my post. I love how open you are on your blog – strong voices remind us new bloggers to keep on the right track!
Hi Clotilda…i guess you already know about the nomination for the ‘very inspiring blogger’ award, but I owed you an official msg, so here goes… your words (loads of them!) leave me with a smile that reaches beyond my ears! The nomination is a ‘thank you’ for inspiring me to laugh again! 🙂
P.S: am eagerly waiting for her ‘funniest horror novel ever’!
Thanks for the compliments. Unfortunately, my horror novel needs way more work. I think I need to rewrite. I have it posted on my website again. If you have any ideas on how I can fix it let me know.
absolutely! reading it asap 😀 thank you!
And yes, if you don’t wanna accept it/ pay it forward, that’s cool too..just wanted to thank you 🙂
Thanks for stopping by and liking my post. I look forward to seeing what you have to say on your blog 🙂
Thanks for the ‘like’. . . . again. You are an inspiration!
Thanks, You are totally awesome, dude.
hey thanks for the like on my blog,,,I am definitely going to check out your blog..looks very interesting !! plz keep visiting ! cheers!
Hey there, just wanted to thanks a bunch for the like on my post so I figured I’d return the favor and check out your blog and I must say there’s quite a bit of interesting things therefore my first instinct was “I have to follow this blog!” lol. I hope to hear and see more from you. Thanks again! 🙂
Hi There! Thanks so much for being one of the first to like our new blog! After perusing yours, we’ve found that we have so much in common with you. How delightful. Aside from our interests in home design we also share debt free living and sustainability as core values. Having recently moved to Mexico City from Canada, I myself, have found the lack of focus on the environment quite alarming. We have naturally been pointed in the right direction all along, but living in this amazing city has caused an explosion of sustainable urban living inspiration. Keep us posted on your backyard melons and cane, and thanks for checking out our Tiny Gardens.
…and by Tiny Gardens, I meant our East Van Lamp!
Thanks for liking my blog. I’ll make sure to write more vulgar shit for your reading pleasure.
Cool Blog! How the heck do you get so many followers? I am new to the game and would love people to comment and follow me 🙂
thanks for the “like”. coming from you, it’s “like” an honour. Hence my acceptance speech:
(in between sobs) I’d like to thank my mom and………….
Have been trying to find your blog (rookie that I am), took some time but here i am….

Thanks for stopping by my blog and all the Likes! I’ve finally gotten around to reading your stories – I loved the cabbage patch doll story. I had an incident with a favored doll and a lamp when I was a child – melted plastic face is never good. Your blog has definitely made it to my follow list.

Hi there – thanks for stopping by my blog. Curious about your kid’s book … where’s the link to read more? I’m thinking about re-working a kids book I wrote in another lifetime and would love to learn more about how you got your stuff on Amazon, how its doing and the new book you’re working on.
In order to get published on Amazon.com you have to go to http://www.createspace.com and upload your document.
Cool – love it when stuff is simple. Thanks!
Hi Clotilda, thanks for the likes on my Oxeye and Yellow Tulip posts.
Clotildajamcracker, Thanks for following my blog, Mormonismscam… and posting you like some of my posts. I have read your complete blog and I feel it is really creative, funny, interesting, and I can relate to it. Your blog also takes me back in time contemplating my life and relationships. Thanks for being a special person.
Hi Clotildajamcracker, thanks for liking my blog post. I haven’t read The Giving Tree Parody yet but I’m positive that it’s a great improvement on the original.
Thank you for visiting the Good Morning Garden often and for liking it. I like your passion and how it “flowers” in your writing and your graphics. 😉
I miss my passionflowers, they died when the fence was being pulled up and I haven’t seen them since.
I really appreciate you reading my work. That means a lot to me.
Thank you for visiting To Dad With Love, and liking my latest post. I have read a few of your posts. You have an interesting and wonderful blog. Congratulations!
Hey Clotilda! You know, you’ve got just about the best blog ever. The writing! The drawing! I love it all.
And many thanks for all your likes of the Lore. I really appreciate it.
You absolutely kill me! You are so prolific when it comes to blogging, I can get my daily fix of you and always get a good laugh. I’ve been meaning to thank you for the likes on my blog, but we’ve been busy with trying to move. We finally found a place and if the inspection is okay we’ll close the first of September and be moving. Then I’d like to talk more in depth with you about writing.
There are sites where you can set up online writer’s groups. We need to talk!
Until then, I happen to think people from Texas are special (I’m from San Antonio) and find it interesting that you mention the west coast, and most especially Washington quite a bit in your blogs. When did you live here? I’ve been here for over 6yrs and will be moving to Tukwila. (some of the names here just kill me too! Chuckanut, Skookumchuck, Muckleshoot,….Wouldn’t Chuckanut make a great squirrels name?)
Hi Clotilda! I wanted to stop by and thank you for liking my post, “Night In Heaven?” (August 7, 2012). I appreciate you taking the time to study my thoughts and perspective. Keep up the great work you and your family are pursuing. I’m liking your talent and zest!
Thx for visiting my blog and liking my post. I was reading some of your stuff. You’re hilarious! I love it! Never stop blogging. 🙂
LOVE this about the garden. Very inspiring and such a better use of space than grass!!
Thank you for stopping by my blog. I’m enjoying checking out your posts!
What a lovely and interesting blog you have Clotilda. Love your sense of humour. Thanks for dropping by my blog, much appreciated:-)

Thanks for visiting The He Said She Said Experience and liking our post about The Lucy Show!
Thank you for visiting and liking a couple of my posts. I am currently living vicariously through you to vent my frustrations and anger against hoarding, stupid people and the minutia of other things that make mommy want to scream. I am quietly and patiently waiting for a few people to kick the bucket so I can post without causing more friction. It may be a while. I’m a chicken like that.
Thanks for inspiring me! I have just nominated you for the Inspiring Blog Award: http://expatiallymexico.wordpress.com/2012/08/13/nominated-for-the-inspiring-blog-award/

Hello 🙂 I cannot claim to have read your whole blog. It may take me some years. I haven’t ‘as yet’ looked up your books. I will, feel free, please, to remind me. Meanwhile I have advertised you on my FBook page, I hope that you do not mind?

Hi! Thanks for liking my post. Debt free is the way to go. It is such a weight off the shoulders.
If you liked my post, you’ll love the novel by Anna Purna, “Dr. Lumumba’s Dream of Incest” which, by the way, is not a dirty book.
You are awesome

Thanks for stopping by my blog and liking my post. Just earlier today I was contemplating starting a debt fast as a way to jump start my way back into being debt free and then you pop up! No coincidences! Thanks for the motivation! I also like to garden (but haven’t in a while) I am finding your blog dry motivating.
Not “dry” motivating! Typo! GEESH! Just “motivating”!😃
considering i am about to graduate from my under grad and go onto graduate school… this paying off debt thing will come in handy. haha
thanks for you like! look forward to following your blog.
Thanks for visiting my blog. That was nice and I hope you’ll come again! Yours looks very unique! You have some very interesting things going on.

Thanks for the like!
And I must say you have a very quirky, readable, interesting-tastic blog in the works here (not that you asked for my opinion, but nevertheless…) 🙂
Thanks for stopping by my blog 🙂
I did a check on Amazon on your books. Have you drawn and written book all by hand? If so, how did you get to publish them? (scan..?). They look quite awesome!
Thanks for liking my blog post “Home” . It has been a pleasure looking around your blog home and getting acquainted. I like the idea of your food forest.
Hi Clotilda. I just wanted to say hello and that I want to nominate you for the Reality Blog Award. I have always been captivated by the very passionate, colourful, and elemental drawings that you have created here with your rather unique world view. You can find the link to the Award and its information here: http://wp.me/p2qfuv-sz. I also figure that you will have some very interesting answers to the questions within this meme.
Thanks for popping by my site and liking my post on “Kapturing Koroit” – if nothing else, it has been great to have the opportunity to look around your site and have a bit of a read. All the best for the food forest (first crop of tomatoes for me for over a decade, now that we have some “dirt” of our own)…
Thank you to our followers 🙂 https://coffeekingdom.wordpress.com/2013/01/10/a-tribute-to-our-followers/
Thanks for supporting my blog! I’m actually thinking of writing a children’s book as well, so you’re an inspiration. Love your illustrations, by the way ;).
Hope you see you again soon!
This is a truly amazing blog, and I love reading each post.
I wanted to nominate you for the Liebster Award as you always inspire me.!
First, thanks for liking my post about recycling / reusing. Next, I’m happy to have found your site. I live very well with very little money. I have owned my 1911-built home for decades. Getting things for free is a favorite of mine. I’m also a gardener and other things. So, I thought I’d just pop by and say hello and thanks for sharing your wonderful writing and your right-on insights! All good to you!
Thanks for checking out my blog and for introducing me to yours! Peace~

I think your art is fantastic, so I have nominated you for the Sunshine Blogger Award. All the details can be found on my original post: http://kateginnivan.com/2013/02/26/it-is-award-season-after-all/
iao! luvFAB blog.
I follow your blog and your picture/icon is featured on the far right hand side of my blog showing people who read my blogs what I read, perhaps you would like to tell some of my readers something about yourself and your blog. I will go with the odd/even method of interviewing (which I just made up), one question will call for a serious answer the other a less serious answer.
1. French fries: Shoestring, steak, curly, crinkle cut? What condiment(s) on them?
2. How long have you been blogging and why?
3. What odor/smell/fragrance to you is the most pleasant?
4. Favorite things to read? What genre? (you may expand on this if you so desire)
5. A boat you are riding in is about to capsize what did you do to contribute to this?
6. What is the best thing about blogging?
7. How much ground can a ground hog, hog, if a ground hog could hog ground?
8. What is the worst thing about blogging?
9. If you could force one famous person to read your blog who would you force, and how much would you force them to read?
10. Where do you hope blogging will lead you too?
Will be posting your interview on a Saturday if you respond. email@example.com
Laura your writing sucks. I feel sorry for Jason I’m sure you guys must be miserable with your antics & he doesn’t know what to do with you.
I’ll by a thousand amuture books & write awesome reviews even tho the art sucks if you jo get help & stop making Jason miserable he is a good guy complete opposite from what you are used to doesn’t mean to dog him out. No wander you write this horrible diary to deal with his infidelity you drive him to it you know.
He looks not well you can see his physical health he looks frail your going to put that guy in an early grave. Question the safety for your children sometimes not from writing a terrible blog but how u really are in real life. Hope u get it together your husband & kids deserve better.
