About Me

www.tonyajoy.combeing a mom to 3 boys, there is always something going on….as my boys have a lot of energy and are eager to learn about new things. i began blogging here because i was always trying to find ways to entertain my kiddies and not break the bank. by searching around Orange County, i found that we could enjoy an entire summer of fun activites around our very own community for practically free. when my friends started asking me how i find all these great fun things to do, i decided to start this blog as a way of sharing what i found. and that is how Sandy Toes & Popsicles was born.

Sandy Toes & Popsicles has now evolved into a blog where i can share not only activities around Southern California, but activities, crafts, recipes, diy, travel adventures and even my own personal musings. everything and anything that i personally enjoy doing with my kiddies and husband. there is always something going on. and i have to admit….it’s pretty crazy around here, but that is how we roll.

i am an artist and graphic designer. i own the invitation company Jill Parkin Designs. i work from home…when the kids are sleeping….or playing with Legos. i let my kids get messy. when they are happy, i am happy. i believe in living in the moment, and that the best things in life are free.

Sandy Toes & Popsicles has now been around for more than 7 years! and we thank all our readers for all their support throughout the years. i enjoy all of your comments and suggestions, and hope to continue to share with you our many adventures. come play with us, we want to have fun with you!

your friends,
jill
and the kiddies
