Hello world!

Hello everyone!  Welcome to the launch of  This is a blog that explores my fascination with handmade and homemade things, including crafting, sewing, cooking, repurposing, upcycling, gardening and whatever else I get a mind to try.  I’m a newbie at a lot of this — no expert by any means.  So I plan to share what I learn, mistakes and all.  I hope you come along for the ride as I attempt to live more simply, sustainably, and purposefully. 

It is my hope that readers of my blog will come away inspiration to tackle their own projects (because, trust me, if I can do it, you probably can too!), learn a new skill, or get an idea to use a product in an innovative way.  And sometimes I hope to just make you think about something you hadn’t considered or maybe just smile.
