I started this blog as a way to share because I have people ask me all the time about things I've created and recipes I've made. I finally found time to get it started when I moved to Nebraska and discovered I had more free time on my hands. A LOT has happened since then. Now I'm living in Pennsylvania in a big farm house spending all my free time fixing it up. Not to worry though I still love this blog and will continue to write. I find the process freeing and a great release of my creative energies.
It seems like most of you have found my blog because you've come for a recipe. Surprisingly recipes are the hardest for me to write about. I actually don't follow recipes very well. I tend to use them more as a guide. I'm always putting my own twist on things. So having to think back through what I actually do and write it out has been a challenge. But it has really stretched me and it's feels good to be challenged.
I'm amazed every day at how many people visit my blog and write me about the Crock-Pot Lasagna in particular. I can remember a few days after I posted the Crock-Pot Lasagna recipe the number of visitors on my blog started going up drastically. My husband was actually out of town and I was FaceTiming him on the iPhone late one night and he said "have you looked at your blog lately?" The picture below depicts the scene well.
MILLION! Is it just me or is that crazy?
I want to say Thank YOU from the bottom of my heart. I really appreciate your visit and I love it when you write. As a way to celebrate and say thanks I have a little giveaway planned. Of course I would love to have you over for a craft party and a cup of joe but since I can't the next best thing is for you to have one at your own place. So I'm giving away a $25 Michaels Gift Card to get you started with the party.
