Handmade With Love

This post contains affiliate links. Please read more about my disclosure policy here.

Growing up my parents were constantly looking for extra ways to bring in extra income even though they were self employed. Times can be tough starting out as young parents. My stepdad would build trailers and snowmobiles to sell while my mom was always crafting. For her, crafting was her second love after teaching and playing piano.

Mom and grandma had been crafting for years. Grandma was a seamstress and could make anything from beautiful dresses to quality quilts. Grandma and mom made Christmas ornaments, wreaths, and gifts to save on money so crafting, not just during the holidays but year round, was part of our family traditions. After working around the house and on the farm crafting was the next activity that was always taking place in our home.

I remember my mom taking toll painting and stamp classes to make our home decorations and cards instead of purchasing things outside the home. I even have some of mom’s beloved toll painted decorations in my home that I won’t part with because I cherish and value the personal touch, time, and love that went into each craft.

My best friend has even started a small Etsy shop with burlap and shirt printing and I stamped for a little bit and have always wanted to scrapbook. Handmade crafts are everywhere! I’m really looking forward to making ornaments with kids this holiday season.

That’s why I’m so excited so share the Handmade With Love Super Bundle from my friends over at Ultimate Bundles! They’re running a giveaway… and not just any giveaway! How would you like to win a Cricut Maker Machine ($400), a Brother Embroidery and Sewing Machine ($390), or any of 18 other prizes?

I thought you might be excited about that because I know that I am! So here’s what’s happening: Including the prizes I already mentioned, there are 20 prizes (worth almost $4,000 altogether), so you’ll definitely find something craft that you’ve had your eye on.

With categories like Knitting & Crochet, Embriodery & Cross-Stitch, Sewing, Quilting, Applique, and Mixed Media Fiber Arts (like weaving), there’s something for every maker.

So take a few minutes and head on over here. You’ll pick your category and enter you name and email address. That’s it! Just sit back and wait to see if you win. Don’t wait because you must enter by November 26!

What handmade craft do you enjoy? I’d love to hear what your special skill is so drop me a comment below!

Holiday Meals Your Whole Family Can Enjoy

Gluten free, dairy free, paleo, vegan…
Deprivation-free holiday meals (take that, food allergies)

Can you believe that Thanksgiving is already next week? I feel like we just recovered from Halloween and that I barely pulled out my Thanksgiving decorations! I pulled out my turkey notepad this weekend and started to make a menu plan for our Thanksgiving meal keeping in mind that I wanted nothing but whole, organic foods. Then, something unexpected happened…

I’ve been feeling different for awhile now and chalked it up to being the mom of a very busy toddler. Even though I eat healthy and watch very closely what I eat my body hasn’t been treating me very well at all. So, I started eliminating certain foods from my diet and guess what? I’m already starting to feel better! But that kind of put a kink in my Thanksgiving menu. No bread or stuffing?? No pumpkin or apple pie?? After the turkey, those are the traditional dishes and desserts I look forward to at my Thanksgiving meal. You can’t have turkey without the stuffing and I’m a total sucker for hot, buttered rolls on our table.

I have several family members that aren’t able to eat certain foods to due food allergies or autoimmune diseases and that can make the holidays frustrating. I always feel badly when theyre not able to eat the dishes I’ve prepared and they feel as though they’re special diets can inconvenience the rest of the guests.

That’s why I’m so excited to tell you about the Food Allergy Freedom Collection. Put together by my friends at Ultimate Bundles, it includes 280 tried-and-true holiday recipes, including:

  • Cakes, cookies, pies and candies that follow a Top 8 Allergen-Free diet
  • 30 deliciously decadent yet healthy desserts free of grains, dairy and eggs
  • A guide for preparing home-made candy with unrefined sweeteners (and not a drop of corn syrup)
  • 32 gluten-free holiday recipes your crockpot can cook for you
  • Classic recipes like pumpkin pie, turkey gravy, and even dinner rolls focusing on GAPS diet, primal, and paleo foods – WOOHOO!!!
  • A 4-week meal plan, including desserts and snacks, free of (or with alternatives for) egg, dairy, wheat, fish, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, and shellfish
  • 13 recipes for fresh-baked, grain-free bread made with coconut flour
  • And much more!

Click here to get your Food Allergy Freedom Collection:

Whether you need to avoid gluten, dairy, eggs, nuts, grains, refined sugars, OR you eat paleo, GAPS, vegan or even AIP, you’ll find something to chow down on with these delicious, deprivation-free recipes.

Normally, you would have to spend over $110 to get the 9 eCookbooks in this collection. But until tomorrow (Tuesday) at 11:59pm Eastern Time, you can get it on a pay-what-you-want basis. Seriously — it’s a chance to save big while making sure you won’t be scrambling for recipes that work this holiday season!

And if you choose to pay $20 or more, you’ll also get a bonus eCourse full of tips for cooking around major food allergens, so you can transform your favorite family recipes to make them allergy-friendly (worth $40 by itself!). Plus the bundle is backed 100% with a 30-Day Happiness Guarantee. So why wait?

Fall Family Photo Shoot

A little known fact about me is that I used to coach cheerleading at the high school I attended. I ran into one of my former cheerleaders and found that she, too, is dabbling in blogging and photography. Since we’re on our debt-free journey I did something that I’ve not ever done and asked if she’d be up for taking our family’s photos. As uncharacteristic as this was of me, my inquiries led to a memorable moment for our family.

Paige Baker at Paige Baker Photography is an absolute dear!  She understands that we are on a  debt-free journey and was generous enough to capture our family. This was the first time since my wedding that we have had any photos taken and we certainly haven’t had any professional  pictures taken as a family since our youngest was born.


We had already taken our annual trip to one of the local pumpkin patches when my in-laws visited earlier in the month so I called the owner of a random pumpkin patch I had driven by on my way home from the grocery store. They had the perfect little set up with the patch, hay bales, tractor, and yard filled with autumn leaves.

If you have children then you know what a challenge it can be to get all of them to smile and look in the direction of the camera at the same time. Paige was wonderful to work with! She knew just how to get the kids to look her way and was able to obtain the perfect photo.

I really like the way that she edited the photos with a warm tone; just perfect for fall!

Finding an outdoor setting was extra special for me because I was raised on a farm growing up. It felt like I was at home with the dirt and farm equipment. The smell of hay was especially reminiscent for me.

The pumpkins at this patch were some of the biggest and perfectly rounded pumpkins I have ever seen! There is something about those farm fresh pumpkins that are extra special.

Paige spotted these cute little pumpkins and gourds that were just the right size for Lily’s little hands to hold during the shoot.

I am absolutely in love with this photo that Paige snapped of the twins! It sums up their bond in one photo. They’re the very best of friends and are going through that silly stage where all they want to do is tease one another.

Paige has a real talent for capturing those precious little moments and this picture absolutely warms my heart! I can’t wait to frame this one and put it on my nightstand so I see my loved ones first thing when I wake up and when I close my eyes before bed.

A huge thank you to Paige Baker for taking these pictures for our family to enjoy and remember forever! She is such a talented young lady and I highly recommend her to take your family’s next photos. You can check her other work out on Facebook and Instagram.
