Where oh where have I been?

Okay so not blogging has become a bad thing and I think I am back. It's not like I haven't been busy.

It was a bountiful summer and fall for fruits and vegetables and even though this is a craft blog preserving food is a craft. Many hours were spent on my days off making jams and baking and making sure the food did not go to waste. The picture of the full pantry is mind boggling to say the least. I have given plenty of it to others also. Believe it or not the universe has replaced with empty jars one for one every jar that I have given away. Thanks to estate sales and good eyes I will be ready if more comes next year. So for all of those blessings of food that were given I have been blessed to be able to share and enjoy as well.

Another project was the road side dresser. This story can be followed on the blog TheThriftGift.blogspot.com. Working a little bit at a time on Sundays and after work this beat up old dresser was transformed into a utility piece for the sun room. It is the perfect height for using my electric grill and I couldn't be happier with the results. It makes a wonderful addition and was quite the craft project. I hope you take the time to look. You will find a link to The Thrift Gift under blogs that I follow.

I got a lot of gardening done this year and can't wait to see how things turn out in the spring with all the new perennials. I gave away plants and received new ones plus used coupons to get new plants at work. I did a lot of recycling and crafty things there also. There was so much stuff in this yard and once it was all in one place it all fell into it's own new home.

I have a lot of good intentions for the following days and weeks so I hope you all will keep in touch with me and follow my blog. Until we share time again have a great day and stay well.
