Hello! I am Christine, just your average gal living in small town Ohio. I love cooking, music, and photography. I have a strong interest in supporting local makers, farmers, stores and businesses. It is fun for me to find more ways to limit my footprint and how to live off my own handmade work or the work of others in my community.

This is my personal blog where I muse and write about my goals, hopes and passions. As well as share my thoughts on handmade, homegrown and living a locally centered lifestyle.

  1. Thanks for stopping by my blog earlier. I noticed you're from Ohio. I was raised there and actually just moved away a year ago. I'm your newest follower.
