Ready, Set, Share


I spend more time baking than the average person. A lot more. My Etsy shop is incredibly (sometimes overwhelmingly) busy. In the three years I’ve been running my Etsy shop, I’ve learned so much. I’m a much better baker than I was when I started. Experience is, after all, the greatest teacher. I’ve developed so many hacks, learned so many secret ingredients, tried so many special tools to make it all go faster. And I’ve been dying to share them–along with all the assorted news on the farm, like our new milk cow. And hey, we’ve got a new (uniquely designed by Rodney) chicken tractor full of growing meat chicks, and a new garden full of veggies and herbs.

I’ve been working on getting control of my time budget (my biggest challenge!) so I can start sharing it all. Recently, someone contacted me via message on Etsy saying they had actually googled for my obituary! I’M NOT DEAD!

Even more recently, Morgan (who is at WVU in Morgantown working on her PhD now, believe it or not!) said, “MOM! START WRITING ON YOUR BLOG!” She is so bossy.

Really, I didn’t know she cared!

And I hope some of you still do, because I’m not dead, and I’ve got a lot of things left to share. I’ll still be here, but if you are also on social media—

Find me on Facebook here.

And on Instagram (I’m just getting started on this) here.

I’ll be sharing many things right here on the blog as always, but I’ll also be sharing some extras on Instagram and Facebook, so come find me!
