What this hermit has been up to...

Making pincushions! I have plans of starting up my ETSY shop soon.

and I made homemade ding dong cupcakes... which were to die for. If I could find a way to keep them fresh I would airmail one to all my hillbilly friends!
All right, so I haven't been a complete hermit, but almost! I have been quite busy, playing with the kids, tending to the garden, baking, crafting, sewing, and rearranging the furniture and finally realizing that no matter how many times I move the furniture this house just isn't getting any bigger! I love my little old house that we are renting, I can picture myself living here forever, but with wanting to have a bunch of little ones... just thinking about it, I go into panic mode, and start moving furniture, thinking where will they all fit? But worrying about tomorrow will do me no good. Today I have two kids, and I love my little house, I will worry about the future when it gets here. I did make a cozy little corner for my seing machine, wedged right in between the couch and the dining room table, this room isn't cluttered, it is multi tasking! p.s. I think I can squeeze a couple more babies in here!


  1. I think being a hermit suits you well! And, look at how productive you have become! Now, I need to take lessons from you about productivity! Though, I think snuggling my baby is productive right now. He won't be little forever, right? Love your creations!

  2. As I was reading your post I saw the pic of your desert. OMG! My mouth started to salivate and its only 9 in the morning. I also love your pin cushions.

  3. The future will happen later. Just enjoy now.

  4. Those Ding Dong cake things are so yummy looking. Just to let you know I am back to blogging if you ever have a chance to stop by. You always lift me up.

  5. Those cupcakes look deadly delightful. I love your pin cushions.
    Hugs and kisses to the boys.

    aka your Mama

  6. I can atest that the cupcakes were absolutely divine! Yummy yum yum!

  7. Hello, You left me a comment that you emailed me and I wanted you to know that I haven't got it. :)

  8. Hi Ashely,your little pincushions are so sweet looking and I won't even mention that delightfully sweet looking Ding Dong...oh, I just did..didn't I.
    Wishing you and your little family a joyful 4th of July....


  9. Looking at your blog with my 3 yo (who SHOULD BE IN BED!!!), he saw your little pin-cushions and said, "Those are weally cute! They look just like muffins!"

    He's weally cute too, and I thought you'd get a kick out of spontaneous toddler commentary. Good job on your homemade sweetness!
