Hi!  Thanks for stopping by. I’m Kristin, a wife, and mother to three young adults, and two scruffy dogs. I’m an obsessed quilter, sometimes knitter, everyday cook, and organizing junkie.

Simple. Handmade. Everyday is my way to share my love for living an intentional life. Filling your home with handmade goodness that you actually use every day, living simply, cooking from scratch to feed a family of teens, parenting those teens, and all the other tidbits that make up a simple, intentional life are all things that I love to share here. I hope that you will join me on the journey.
