Your Guide to Simple Handmade Living

My goal is to help you turn your home into a haven, a place of rest in a frantic world, a place where relationships can be built and where love spills out of the kitchen. Where food is made from scratch, great-grandma’s wisdom is handed down along with traditional forms of food preservation, and Mason jars stuffed with herbs and spices flavor not only your food, but your natural medicine cabinet as well.

In order to do that, I want to give you the exact steps and tools to make this an easy transition.
