  1. It is sooo nice to meet a fellow believer AND a fellow crafter, and I just love your little corner of the blog world!
    I'm your newest follower #1 fan!!!

  2. I just discovered your blog and am very happy about that. It is so nice to find believers in our Lord. One has hope for our country when one finds believers such as yourself. Keep up the good work and I will be back to see what has been going on in your life.

  3. How fun! Target is definitely a happy place of mine as well!

  7. Target is my happy place too. I'm there several times a week. I was fortunate to visit Lake Tahoe twice will on a conference with my husband. We absolutely loved it. No wonder you go as often as you can.

  8. Hi Mel! I just want to share a post of mine with you...http://ourlittletinies.blogspot.com/2016/03/pinterest-told-us-to.html so can see how an outfit you put together and shared in October of 2014 is still inspiring people! :) Thank you!!!

  9. I love your blog and was wondering how you keep bugs at bay in your veggie garden?

  10. is there any where to find printable copies of your recipes? my tablet doesn't copy and paste, printing the way they are shown takes major paper and ink - great expense! lots of sites have "print" recipes. I would love it if this was available for your recipes, because there are many that look delicious. thank you Carolyn

  11. Yay!! I'm a new blogger but a friend of Erika and Shay's and a fellow Etsy girl! I am linking up tomorrow with yall and just went through your blog and had to stop and say hi! :) I've been looking for people who are Etsy bloggers/personal bloggers. Excited to follow you!!
