Finding time to post has been kind of tough lately, I have been picking up more subbing jobs and real estate tasks and there is always lots to do to help hubby with his work. Spending more time indoors means I am turning more time to my kitchen. After picking apples last weekend with my daughter, I turned our efforts into my favorite dessert, apple pie. I am including a tutorial of how my mom taught me, and now I hope to pass it on to my daughter.
I have been busy making stuff for a harvest show benefitting our Early Childhood Association, so I decided to put my crafts together with 3 other friends, we are calling our little group, "It Takes a Village". I know it is not original, but we have more than one reason to call ourselves this. We each have special needs children, we try to help each other out with life's little challenges, and we all attend the same church, and have over the years volunteered our time to others in similar circumstances. We plan to donate a small percentage of our sales to the work of special needs groups at our church.
Been busy making stuff for my etsy site too; though don't know if they are being seen by anyone? Times are tough for everyone, I know I am not shopping for much for the holiday, knowing that it will have to be handmade, by me. So I have been searching the internet for good ideas, the hardest ones to make for our the boys and men. Anyone have some easy, inexpensive ideas for crafting for the guys that would be a gift they'd actually enjoy? Post your ideas, here and I have a flower pin/band or clip for the winner, to be drawn by next Friday, Nov 7th, 9pm. Post a comment, even if you don't have any brainy ideas, ok?
Last topic I wanted to share some of my "collections". I try to limit my hoarding to groups of things, here are a few pics of them. What kinds of stuff do you hoard, and why? Post a comment here also if you have a pic or a category to share. I think it is amazing how these little collections take over, but kind if in a sentimental way, right?
I have more, this is just part one, of stuff!
