My name is Yetunde (YayToonDay)Taiwo Rodriguez, or AfroMartha.
I am a happily married with three lovely children. I studied Graphic Design in college, but somehow I’ve been all over the map in my work choices. In addition to this blog, I also sell property and casualty insurance by day, and I’m in starting up my home solutions business.
Actually, the name ‘AfroMartha’ started as kind of a joke…a nod to my African-ness, and also to her royal Martha-ness. The name was bestowed upon me by my very funny friends, and it references my love of the domestic arts: cooking, baking, decorating, rearranging, crafting and the like.
As I’ve evolved, so have my interests and tastes. I have come to understand my strengths and what I’m really good at.
Cooking, Baking, Crafting, Making of any sort…Yes I do those things very well.
But my real super-power? Finding creative solutions to everyday home problems. I get down and dirty. I get into the the nitty gritty. I like to know how things work so that I may solve the malfunction.
Whether is an organizational problem, a decor problem, a cooking problem, I’m your girl.
