I started this blog with the idea to share a love for all things handmade and the handmade kind of life I’ve lived for as long as I can remember.
I grew up a handmade kid. My mother had eight of us kids and she spent the biggest portion of her life sewing, re-purposing, and recycling, not to mention canning, preserving, jellies, pickles, you name it. Hand-me-downs is how we lived. My mother passed her love of crafting on to us, as I hope I am passing it on to my daughter. I love making handmade things for gifts. I love baking goodies from my mother’s handwritten recipe cards. I love shopping for handmade things. I love going to craft and holiday festivals. I think I just love the uniqueness of it all, the one of a kind treasures. I hope to share my treasures with you.
I am married (for 16 years now) and am mom to my beautiful teenage girl. I am number 6 out of eight kids my mom had. My everyday life is hectic and insane usually, but I can pick up whatever craft project I’m working on, and I get instant peace.
