makingofahomehomestead on InstgramSuch an awesome evening spent raising funds for the YMCA’s Annual Campaign. A huge thank you to @bristletimber for hosting such a fun event! 🎨My 10 year-old just made this keto chocolate chip cookiedough cheesecake...and it’s beyond amazing. 😋 She took a recipe she found online and tweaked it to make it work for her. No refined sugar. No carbs. Nothing artificial. Absolutely delicious! #homeschoollife #dowhatmakesyouhappy #homeschooladventures #homeschoolingmom #homeschoolingfamily #futurebakeryownerIt’s a craft & cat kind of day 💕❄️💕 #winterhomesteadinglife #handmadegnomes #catsofinstagram #homestead #homesteading #homeschool #homeschooling #crafting #craftingthroughwinterOne of those nights when a gal feels lucky to live where she lives ❄️💚❄️ #rockfordillinoisSo, I’m kinda obsessed 🥰 #ivefallendowntherabbithole #macreme #modernmacramebook #modernmacrame #crafting #homestead #homesteading #homesteader #urbanhomesteadMy first attempt at dyeing cotton with dried elderberries 🌿 Honestly, I was expecting a bit of a deeper color, but this subtle rusty pink color is still pretty lovely, especially when placed beside the bright white of the snow. #naturaldye #naturalfibers #homestead #homesteadlife #homesteadcrafts #homesteadinggal #urbanhomesteadThings are about to get real crazy around here this Friday night 😆 #crafting #firstattemptatmacrame #macrame #homeschoolmom #homesteadinglady #homestead #homesteading #urbanhomesteadI am THRILLED for my life-long friend who is putting herself out there and embarking upon a new life adventure this week!
