Good day and welcome as I guest-host this week's...
We had so many "Make it From Scratch" submissions and I can't wait to show you what these wonderful women have been up to!
A few days ago I was speaking with my sister on the phone. We were talking about blogging and her comment to me was, "Jen, pictures are important to you when it comes to blogging, aren't they." I wasn't sure she meant that as a compliment or criticism, but since I'm an optimist, I was flattered and agreed that, yes, pictures are important when it comes to blogging. They're actually pretty much my favorite thing because sometimes I just don't have the time to read everything I come across, but if I see a great photo, I'll usually stick around to see what is going on. With that in mind, I have organized the submissions in such a way as to let the photos speak for themselves. I sorted the entries into six different categories. They are...
-From the Kitchen
-From the Haunted House
-From the Garden
-From the Gift Closet
-From the Craft Box
-On the Farm
