I know, you think I fell off the face of the earth - not quite, but close. I have taken pictures of the different things I've been making. Our family has not eaten out (with the exception of a couple of times Enoch and I went on a date) since I posted and I'm feeling fantastic about that. I have lots of catching up to do and hope to get to it soon.

In the meantime, a few things.

One - it's November. Sure, you are thinking Thanksgiving, food, etc. I am as well and have some great plans, but it also means it is NaNoWriMo - if you were here last year, you may remember this is the program where I pledge to write 50,000 words in one month. Last year I was about 12,000 short, but I have the expectation to do better this time. I'll let you know.

Two, I really want to make more personalized gifts for people this year. One of the blogs I have come to love, Skip to my Lou, is doing tutorials, etc. to help people who have the same goals I do. There is a button on the right to lead you the way.

I'm enjoying getting back to something resembling homemaker land - I'll try to keep this blog more updated in the process.

Happy November!

Way to go on not eating out. I still despise cooking, but I know I'd like it more if I had a better schedule of what I was making. Ben's good to help out, but neither of us like deciding.

What a blog makeover! Love the new background and will check out the new blog background site. And thanks for the website about handmade - I was just talking with Ann about how I don't have money to buy presents as of now, and I'm pretty sure something is going on with my car which will be at least $100, and that doesn't include the tires my car needs before it gets slippery...I have already spent any and all money I could even think about having for presents. So though I haven't checked it out yet, this is just what I need and I can't wait to see what I could make for Christmas presents this year!
