I had originally set out to make this page and the posts added to it all recipes and cooking related. However, then I started thinking and there’s so much more I want to add to it! Cooking, canning, painting, quilting, sewing, some of Mr. Smivie’s projects. Any plans we may put up for others to be able to use will all be added here and under the tag creations! We have so many ideas, and so many things we’ve been working on that I’d like to share!

Oh and HEY! While you’re here, over on the right hand side, see those little heart shaped buttons? There’s Pinterest, Tumblr, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. Give us a like and a follow over there too! Day to day pictures, crazy stories from the critters, and other happenings get posted on those almost daily as well! I’d love to have you join us!
