Greetings, blog guests! Welcome to my tiny little corner of cyberspace. My name is Barb and I’ve been blogging since about 2009. My blog focuses on the multitude of hobbies and crafts that I’m interested in, including cross-stitching, sewing, quilting, scrapbooking, card-making, other paper crafts, and photography, as well as cooking and recipes. In general, I do NOT blog about my personal life or include personal photos in my posts. At the top of my blog, you’ll find tabs separating the recipe posts, as well as crafty tutorials and cross-stitch finishes. A "Gift Ideas" tab is in the works.
With respect to cooking and recipes, my focus is on things that taste good! Well, I guess there’s a little more to it than that. I work full-time outside of the home as an attorney (I work in tax policy), so I love recipes for quick and easy dinner entrees, and I especially love good recipes for the slow-cooker. Beyond that, I am always collecting recipes for interesting finger foods, appetizers, and desserts – these come in handy when I’m planning to make snacks for the big game, as well as those times I need to bring a treat into the office.
So that you can see what I’m all about, here’s an example of one of my crafty posts, a tutorial I posted awhile ago on how to make adorable painted plant pots. Polka Dot Flower Pots And here’s an example of a recipe post, showcasing a delicious and easy muffin recipe I discovered over the holidays: Cranberry Muffins Finally, here’s an example that will eventually appear on the “Gift Ideas” section of my blog – a recipe and cute presentation idea for an easy and budget-friendly spiced tea mix, perfect if you like to give just a little something to your co-workers at Christmas: Hot Spiced Tea Mix
If you like my blog, I’ve tried to make it easy to subscribe or follow. There is a subscription gadget to the left, as well as a separate gadget if you’d like to follow my blog by e-mail. I love following blogs by e-mail, as I’m more likely to take the time to click a link right from my in-box, especially if the title of an update post has really caught my eye.
So, welcome to my blog, and I sincerely hope that you’ll find something you like here. Please feel free to leave a comment to let me know what you think -- I would love to hear from you!
Thanks for visiting!
