Come on in!!
Welcome to my blog!
I should have titled my blog “Scrambled Eggs & Brownies”. When I got married, that was the only two things I could cook. I remember one day, as a very newly married woman, I was attempting fried pork chops for supper. As I was at the stove cooking, my Father-in-law called.
I was having a little trouble at the stove and I heard my husband loudly exclaim, “She’s burning the pork chops!” He didn’t care that I was burning the pork chops. I was mortified that not only did my husband know, but now my in-laws did, too! I burned many things (getting side tracked is still my specialty) but eventually I learned.
I have learned many of the arts of homemaking over the years. I can now successfully cook fried pork chops, as well as yummy gravy and homemade bread to go with them (with homemade Italian cream cake for dessert!). I have learned to cook, can food, sew, crochet, quilt, paint furniture, cross-stitch, decorate on a budget, organize my home, as well as many other home crafts. I love making my house a home but I didn’t come by that naturally. It is my desire to help other women know that they can do it, too! (Truly, if you knew me, you would believe that if I can, ANYONE can.)
I am certainly not setting myself up as an expert. I am not a super mom, or amazing wife with a perfectly cooked meal on the table every day in my perfectly clean home. I am a normal (depending on who you ask…but we won’t go there) woman. I occasionally leave dirty dishes in the sink when I go to bed, I don’t sweep my floor as often as I should, and just this week my hubby had to get his clean socks out of the dryer instead of in his drawer where they were supposed to be! I love the Lord, my family, and my home and I try to do my best by all of them!
I hope this blog will be a place of teaching the Art of Home. If you have any questions, I will be happy to help!
