Hi! I'm Stacey Keating, AKA The Modern Domestique
I live in Colorado by way of Paris, France and my birth state of California.
I do these things that relate to home economics.
I can show you how to do these things too!
From crafts to sewing, to cooking to homemaking, this blog is a place where I share about the things I do from my home in Boulder, CO. I make lots of things from scratch and love learning how to make new things, but this blog is not just about the things I make, and how these things relate to home economics - it is also a resource to show you how to make these things yourself.
My aim is to present Modern Home Economics - aka life skills - in a fun, sustainable and practical way.
As a Modern Domestique, I can show you how to sustainably bring home economics back into your life, and why that’s important for you, your family, and your community.
What is The Modern Domestique?
The Modern Domestique is a place to learn about how to live sustainably, save money while doing it, and create things that will last.
The Modern Domestique is a resource to help explore how the things we buy, cook or make impact our families, communities, and world around us. As a Modern Domestique, I love to write about ways to experiment with sewing, cooking and other things related to making our home lives more sustainable and fun.
I share the view that Home Economics is “the profession and field of study that deals with the economics and management of the home and community. The field deals with the relationship between individuals, families and communities, and the environment in which they live.” source
If you’d like to read more about my philosophy on Home Economics, head over to my first post.
I’m not saying that we all have to make everything ourselves – my aspiration is to help us all be aware of the impact we are having on the world around us while feeling empowered to make any changes ourselves, starting in our home.
The way a Modern Domestique views Home Economics is actually really simple. It’s not all about throwing the “perfect” dinner party, or about making sure to dust behind the pictures hanging on your wall. It’s about exploring a way of life that enhances our environment and community from where it all begins – in the home.
