Originally I had no plans of making a rainbow jello cup. I purchased a box of gelatin in every color of the rainbow and planned on making each one and then displaying them in a rainbow pattern on a glass dish. The concept of a rainbow cup came later. The is a very easy recipe, it just takes some time…

We just celebrated our oldest daughter’s 3rd birthday. Back in July I asked her what she wanted for her birthday. She said Rainbow, Rainbow cake and Christmas (pronounced mismass) present.

The Spirit of a Pioneer

By | 0 Comments

Did you ever read Laura Ingles Wilder “Little House on the Prairie” series? I did and I don’t know about you, but it made me wish I was a pioneer. The simple life. Nothing cluttering them up.

Silence: Why I Love It

In my youth I would play music, loud, very loud, while I did my homework or clean my room/house. At one point I listened to the radio just to fall asleep. As I got older the radio transitioned to a box fan put on high. I just had to have that on, to go to sleep every night. After a…

Creativity Isn’t Just About Crafts

By | 0 Comments

When you hear the word creative what pops into your head? An art project? Paints? Scrap-booking perhaps? or Maybe a sewing project? A group of ladies making a quilt? I know those are all things I think of. It took me a while to realize that being creative does not have such a defined setting. It is not just art…

When DIY Becomes TOO Much

By | 0 Comments

I am a big fan of do-it-yourself anything, well almost. That is just the kind of person I am. It is a great feeling to know you can do something yourself. Kind of empowering. I make my own household cleaners. I’ve made my own laundry soap. I make a lot of different breads from scratch such as, dinner rolls, bread…
