  • When @bakerhands put out a call two days ago asking for a few hours of baking help today, I pounced at the chance to spend some quality time with such a warm, wise lady. When I found out @rorris and @jenathan had offered the same thing, the deal became even sweeter. The four of us gathered at Smoke Signals Bakery in Marshall today to chat, chew, and chop. Three cheers for wonderful people, delicious food, and fostering community. Hip, hip, freaking HOORAY!!! What a stellar day. *I was in charge of apple pie filling prep today.

And the Winner of “Making It” Is…

Ashley, over at Life of a Little Woman, lucky number #175, according to my random number generator widget. I’ll be in touch soon for your mailing info.

Thank you so very much to all who participated. I LOVE giving things away! Those of you who know me personally can attest to this. From clothing to housewares, scratch-cooked meals to generous hugs, I love sharing what I’ve got.

    So excited! Thank you so much for the chance to win!

  • Even though I didn't win the book, I did win by finally making my own eyeglass cleaner!

    I had been paying $3.50 for an 8oz bottle of cleaner. I made my own cleaner using a 16oz bottle rubbing alcohol ($1) and 16oz water (free) with a few drops of dish soap (basically free).

    I got 32oz of homemade eyeglass cleaner for $1. I would have paid$14 for that much at the store!!! And, my homemade cleaner seems to work better!

    Thanks to Ashley English for the motivation to finally get this “small measure”-type project done. :)

  • Thanks, Ashley!

    I also just got your Canning & Preserving book.

    I am planting my first vegetable garden this year and I am very much looking forward to using the book to help me can some of my bounty. :)
