Hello! I’m Susan Larsen and I’m the CraftyWildflower.

Family Friday

I’m a wife to my hubby Brandon, and mother to four beautiful children ranging in ages from 10-17. We also have two adorable furbabies.

We’ve had our share of ups and downs and lots of love along the way. Join me as I post about topics ranging from grief and the loss of my dad at the age of 14 and how my 9 siblings and I overcame the heartache and loss, to fun things like recipes, exercise, and fun family adventures. I’ve found love and happiness in this crazy thing called life and I believe everyone can too!

Family Friday
Brandon is my cute and funny side kick in this thing called life. He is a Creative Director for an online fitness company and currently works from our home in the country. He makes me smile EVERYDAY and is God’s gift to me! Love him!

For those that are new to Crafty Wildflower I thought I’d share my posting schedule, what that means and a couple samples for each day of the week. I post almost every day or as often as my busy mom life permits! You can learn more about me on my about page here.

Monday – #MakeoverMonday or #MondayMeals

On #MakeoveMonday I like to share makeover projects that I’ve been working on for our country home. These will vary from large room makeovers, cute signs, decorations, digital downloads and paint projects.

In between makeover projects on #MondayMeals I’ll share some of my family’s favorite meals. I have four kids ranging in ages from 10-18 so my recipes are kid approved and make enough to feed a family of 6. I hope you can modify them however needed for your cute families!



Tuesday – #TellitallTuesday

On #TellitallTuesday I talk about processing grief and working through those difficult moments in life. I’ll be sharing stories about how my nine siblings and I processed and overcame losing our dad at the young age of 48.

This will include some fun stories and some heart breaking ones. Also, how I coped, what worked and what didn’t and how this trial ultimately made me stronger, more resilient and happy.

Grow Through What You Go Through - Tell it all Tuesday

It was difficult and really where the theme for this whole web site started. My husband wrote a poem for me 20 years ago that we have since turned into a book that is available on amazon here.

You can read all about my back-story here and what I hope to accomplish with this website and book. I’ve created a free grief journal that you can download for free and work along with me on different journal prompts.

I will be donating books to grieving families, some I’ll share here and some are to private to share but they are happening! I hope that eventually others will want to share their stories of overcoming hardship here as well and help someone else along their journey.
