From a stray piece of tulle, some blue lace trim passed on to me, and pearls from a broken necklace. Tacked on to a blank card my aunt gave me with a little hot glue. Pennies at home, instead of dollars at the store.
A bit of creative satisfaction in the chaos.
I am a wife and mother of two. I am a stay-at-home mom, part time cookbook editor, a Mennonite, and a city dweller. I like to make things (see the blog categories below). This blog is a record of what I make and the ways I try to be thrifty. Welcome!
