About Me


My name is Peg Graham. I live in Chesapeake, Virginia with my husband James and 4 out of 5 of our 'minions'.

We have 5 children (ages 34, 32, 22, 18, 15) and 1 grand daughter (6). And we have 4 dogs (3 Pugs/1 Yorkie mix), 1 Cat, and 3 Sugar Gliders.

I am a Virginia Homesteader. I have an organic garden. I can fruits and veggies. I make my own cleaners, I use essential oils, I make things from scratch, I craft and create. I am a Paper Crafter, Knitter, Crocheter and occasional yarn dyer. (And one day I will own a Farm House!)

I run the Facebook Group: 'Virginia Urban Homesteaders League'.

I also have a Facebook page: 'PegCrochets' more to show items that I Crochet and Knit. (I need to up date it).

I love, love, love Pinterest! (see my Pinterest Board). Yes, Pinterest is my 'Go To Spot' for ideas, but I also found YouTube videos very addicting, mostly homesteading and crafting.

I love Vintage, Mixed Media, Junk Journals and I love the variety of Japanese papers for paper crafting. (Glassine is my weakness), because the texture and yes, the sound it makes when you touch it...love that.


I started a New Group. Please Join!

Comment: Hi Peg, I am so sorry that it's taken me so long to rate you, but I didn't forget you. Thank you so much for your Mini Pocket Letter--Summer Theme. You definitely exhibited summer through your Pocket Letter. I also appreciate the goodies you packed the Pocket Letter with and the Journal Cards you sent along. I also want to thank you for your nice note. It was nice to get to know you a little bit. I hope we get to swap in the future. I met a lot of new swappers during 2020 and it has been that way in 2021. Until we meet to swap again, Happy Swapping! Colorado mail in and out of the state continues to be an issue. Please be Patient! Thank you! Barb B. sleepingrover2010

Seacrow rated for Tea and Inspiration Swap- July (USA) on Jul 29, 2020
Comment: Lovely surprises! You are so creative! Love the tea packets and inspiration, plus the Silverstein poems--he's always been a fav in our family. Peeked at your website and bookmarked it for when I have a bit more time. My youngest son lives in Manassas so I've had a chance to spend some time in your lovely state, Wish I could get my older son and his family to leave this crazy state and then I'd head to VA permanently. I already enjoyed the strawberry tea! Thank you so much for such a sweet package.
