Tattooed Martha began as a kitchy pun on being a tattooed version of the cooking, baking, crafting badass we all know, love, and let’s be real.. slightly fear. It was my way to share the creative projects I was working on and my journey to becoming a better home cook.
What it has evolved into now is a dual space for me to share my inspiration, creativity, and celebrations as well as my mistakes, shame, and setbacks. Because without both sides of the coin you lose out on the authenticity, honesty, and passion that we all need to drive us forward. Don’t worry.. there’s still plenty of delicious recipes and strong cocktails for you to enjoy along the way!
The voice behind Tattooed Martha…
I’m Sasha and currently call the beautiful rolling hills of Madison County, Iowa my home. I bought my very first house this past February that I share with my boyfriend, Punk, my trusty sidekick of 17 years, and our farm dog, Cha-Kita Banana Wednesday, (it’s a long story). The land has been in the same family for over a century and I’m doing my best to renovate and restore this home while keeping the original history alive. I’ll be sharing before and afters, renovation projects, and of course the messy in-between of our first fixer upper.
My passion is blogging, freelance writing, and developing recipes, but I also work as a fulltime store leader in retail to fuel my passion projects, travel frequently, and of course pay for this house I just bought! It makes for a full plate (literally and figuratively), but it allows me to live independently and create the life that I want.
This is my corner of the blogging world to inspire, grow, and connect with others through recipes, creative projects, and writing. Life is messy, but there’s a lot of amazing things that can come out of that mess. So I invite you to get your hands dirty and create along side me.
