Relaunch Giveaway

Moving is never easy, but after getting settled it’s time for a relaunch. We sold our homestead in Illinois, and moved to Arizona. Between all of the moving and selling, writing got pushed to the wayside. Now with renewed vigor I’m ready to get the ball rolling again!

Our beloved chickens found a new home with plenty of wooded land to roam. Our current residence does not allow us to have chickens, but I have already started looking into new coop designs for when I can start a new flock. (A side note: Tractor Supply is right down the road- it’s so hard not to buy all of their chicks!) I’m leaning towards a coop that has a rainwater trap since Arizona does not get as much rain as frequently.
The kids and Fendi are doing well in their new environment. (I think Fendi particularly LOVED not dealing with snow this past winter!) And we have a new baby arriving in November, this time around it is a girl!

While the bulk of my posts had been about the chickens and goats while in Illinois, I am working on some new posts that deal more with my kids (keeping them busy during the extreme heat of summer), gardening in the city, and a few other crafts and sewing projects I have been working on.

To celebrate my relaunch- now through Memorial Day all new subscribers will be entered into a drawing for a set of 4 kitchen towels I finished on my loom! I’m very excited to start production on these towels and to add to my store front!

These are 100% cotton towels, that soften with every use and wash! Three Large Dishtowels measure 18″X 24″ and a hand towel that measures 18″X 15.5″.

Don’t miss your chance to win these beautiful kitchen towels! Click here to subscribe and be entered into the drawing!


  1. Welcome to Arizona. Where are you located? I promise it won’t be just the same as Illinois, but it will be great.

    • Thank you! We are in Yuma now so the weather has been the biggest change to get used to, but we are excited for camping and exploring some of the nearby mountain ranges!

      • Welcome to Arizona, I love in Tucson by way of Ohio. The hot weather is coming but you learn to get things done early and chill during the hot times.

        • I certainly do try to get out early, although our weather the next week and half is pretty good (less than 90 most days). And now that I’m pregnant with our third child I’m trying to stay as cool as I can!

    • Thank you!! I’m really excited to be adding more woven items to my store front. I’ve got some test rags on the loom right now to see if I like the technique. So once those are done, I will be adding more towels to my store!

    • Hi Sunnie! Where in CO were you? We used to live in Lakewood, CO for about 2 years. I’m a little jealous your outside of the city, there are more fiber stores up in Phoenix than down here in Yuma :P.
