A Homemade Christmas Preparation
What have I been up to? Lots and lots. I've been finishing up a few last minute gifts for friends and family. Many of them I started ages ago and never got the time to complete when the urgency for pre-winter garden prep, goat breeding, and all the other homestead things came up. And now, … Continue reading A Homemade Christmas Preparation
Homestead Update:Knitting, Projects, and News
It seems an odd thing to me to be knitting mittens on my front porch in 65° weather in December, but such is life in East Tennessee- Weather is a fickle mistress. In any case, I've completed 2 of 4 pairs of mittens, and am working on pair #3. Mitten in progress, The Knitter's Handy … Continue reading Homestead Update:Knitting, Projects, and News
The last 2.5 weeks have been rough. The whole family cycled through a respiratory illness, followed almost immediately by a gastric illness. And I tell ya what, I'm over the extra laundry and cleaning. The fire cider I made is much appreciated. 👍 On the plus side, I've been able (forced) to rest with my … Continue reading Post-illness comeback

We'll be at … Continue reading It’s Market Day!
Project Completed: Hoodie Shawl
Apparently I'm one of those people who can't just follow a pattern. As such, this shawl has morphed through 3 different patterns and designs to become what it is today, an unforseen masterpiece. For starters, I was just going to knit a simple seed stitch shawl. I figured, the yarn was "fancy" enough without my … Continue reading Project Completed: Hoodie Shawl
With my Grandpa here, and his hands refusing idleness, we managed to get the hoop coop finished! It was really neat watching the guys outside working on everything together, teaching my son as they went. And the Chickies love their new, more spacious home. I've been having a BLAST taking advantage of our off week … Continue reading Homestead Update
Small Business Spotlight: The Spinnery Store Dot Com
I have a gem for you all today! But it begins with some bad news. As most of you know, Etsy is an e-commerce marketplace that was begun with small sellers in mind. It used to be the best possible thing for individuals looking to market their vintage or handmade products to a broad audience … Continue reading Small Business Spotlight: The Spinnery Store Dot Com
Holiday Market Preparations
Our MOPs holiday market is scheduled for the 2nd week in November. That means I'm planning and preparing all of my crafting items and seeds to sell. I think my favorite items this year came about out of happenstance. We had odds and ends bits of flooring left over after our Kitchen project. Some of … Continue reading Holiday Market Preparations
Talk about weird days...I struggle periodically with RA-like symptoms. My rheumatologist insists it isn't truly RA.... Kind of like my mom's doctor told her back in 2015 that she didn't ACTUALLY have diabetes...but that the only thing standing between her and a diagnosis was 5 years time. Now she has type 2 diabetes. I don't … Continue reading Homestead Update
