I may be going overboard this year but I am hoping to do it right this gardening season.

Even though there is literally a wall of snow out my door, I am ready to SPRING forward. The best start for me is to refresh my surroundings and my spirit. Besides the kitchen, my mantel is a place where I can continually express myself. I decorate living spaces for longevity so it’s nice to be able to switch up things according to quickly changing seasons and evolving moods and styles.
What says spring better than images of birds, nests, and new life, not to mention a refreshed relationship with God? This verse just speaks to me in times of anxiousness. I love simple typography as wall art. It just speaks for itself.

This spring is just keeping us waiting. Waiting for the 5 foot snow heaps to be gone, waiting for the end of snowstorms, waiting for sunshine and longer days, but most importantly, waiting for our long expected baby!
I’ll keep you up to date!

I borrowed a dehydrator from a friend to see if I need one. I made raisins, banana chips and apple rings. While they are tasty, there are just some things that I’d rather buy. I have been enamored with making some of my own staple items, like yogurt and ricotta cheese.
I’m glad that I did it. I’m glad that I can. BUT- I keep thinking that for a couple of dollars more, I can buy some! The older I get, the more precious my time feels. I want to focus more on cooking the actual meals than the ingredients. Maybe someday I’ll get back to making everything from scratch but for now I’ll savor time with my darling, my babes and my horse!

We have been here since May and I have finally unpacked my craft room
I think I’ve procrastinated so long because I was afraid to cram my things into such a small space. It fit! I did unload before the move but I’m still shocked! I hope I have as much fun in this space as I did in the last!

I have seen the technique of printing on wax paper via Pinterest so many times. I finally decided to use it and it worked!
My dilemma was that I couldn’t print on a large piece of paper. I wasn’t going to let that stop me! When I want to do a project, I NEED to do it NOW!
I carefully placed the wax paper, ink side down, onto my project and rubbed the image onto the paper. I love how it turned out. The text has just the right amount if transparency for just the “vintagey” less than perfect look that I love!
