Hello! My name is Laine (pronounced leyn), and I am a mom, gardener, crafter, and wannabe urban homesteader. I am a native Austinite who lived in the Bay area for awhile and I have recently found myself back in the Lone Star state. While I miss the Bay area I am loving being near my family again, having hot weather, and easy access to breakfast tacos!
My blog got the name Fort Poppin because when my daughter was a toddler "poppin" was her word for pirate. She named our first house Fort Poppin and all of our houses since have had the same name. This blog follows my household adventures, so it varies from kitchen geekery to crafts to tween parenting to green living to financial planning.
