Welcome!


I’m working on my website. I am far from done, but I’m adding things frequently. Thank you for your patience. You can access the latest blog post by clicking on the pictures, or clicking on the menu. Recipes will be added as I get to them. I’m learning something new every day, and adding things frequently. Some of them are behind the scenes, so you don’t see them, but it’s all part of this website construction journey that I’m on.

Check out the new recipe for Gluten-Free Pumpkin Spice Bars in the Recipe drop-down menu. They are really good!

    1. Thank you, Cindy! I love writing it. The technical part is a real learning curve for me, but I’ve been prevailing! Give Malachi a hug for me:)

    1. Awesome! Glad to have you along on this crazy journey! I’m sure for someone who knows computer things, it’s easy. For me, it’s an adventure! I’m excited because the other blog was almost out of space, so now I’m good to go for a long time:)

  1. Good job on those pajamas! My grandson has atopic dermatitis and is very picky about pajamas too. I make him seven new pairs of bottoms every Christmas and my mom gifts him with matching long sleeve cotton tee shirts. It’s fun looking for interesting (and durable) cotton prints throughout the year, while trying to keep it affordable. We sometimes sit on the patio in our ‘jamies, but we never go out in public with them on. Though I frequently see adults and children wearing pajamas, especially at the grocery store.

      1. Cotton. Flannel gets too hot for him. When he was little it was pretty frugal, now that he’s eleven it takes a lot more fabric😁. But I bought a multi size pattern years ago and it should take us through the teen years, so there’s that.
        BTW I really enjoy your blog. Your frugal ideas are helpful. And your dedication to the children and young people in your lives is inspiring. Thank you for sharing your life experiences with the rest of us.

        1. Thank you. I’m glad you enjoy the blog. I really enjoy writing it:)

          I’ll bet you already shop the sales and the bargain rack for fabric, but I know it’s sometimes hard to find anything for a boy on those. It’s the same for thrift stores and garage sales–it’s so hit and miss that it’s not worth the time unless you stumble on a bargain when you are out and about. I’m sure he loves the pj’s, though, and with sensory kids–comfort is the main consideration. It’s a labor of love for you to sew so many for him.
