Tuesday's "Three"

February 26, 2013


First, before we begin the "three" post can I just say....I make candles!  Whoo hoo!  For those of you who have made them before you know how truly easy they are but still, I'm excited that I have something new under my belt so I'll say it again.....I MAKE CANDLES.  {slightly excited, sorry}

To celebrate I will be hosting a Cobble Hill Farm candle giveaway soon {and they won't smell like the chicken coop - promise}.

......on to today's "three".....


3 Posts I'll Be Putting On The Blog This Week:
  1. Eggs 101 {Caring For and Storing}
  2. Making Soy Candles {see ridiculous rant above}
  3. Making Cloth Baggies a.k.a. I finally SEW!!!  {just as exciting as candle making in my book}
**on the cooking blog will be Moose Munch, oven-baked Risotto and Slow-Cooker Chicken Wings**

3 Things I'm Working On This Week:
  1. Still working on my jewelry designs.....loving them!
  2. Reading Wayne Dyer's "Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life"
  3. Babying Oliver.....he started his shots yesterday for arthritis prevention and let's just say he handled it as dramatic as possible once he saw the needle.  {p.s. Sarah - you may want to bring earplugs with you on Thursday}
3 Things I'm Lovin' On The Web This Week:
  1. Scroll about halfway down the page to find the sweetest Spring mini hanging vases from baby food jars.  Too cute!
  2. I think homemade garden stones are adorable anyway, but these I would make just to scatter throughout my flower gardens so they could be discovered while meandering through.
  3. I love the look of Polaroids so these coasters are perfect.

Happy Tuesday!

It's true!

Please know that it hasn't all been lollipops and rainbows. We have had many many struggles. Certainly some...

My Story: Building A Soap Business To Earn Six Figures In 3 Years

October 10, 2017


As promised, here's a little bit about the business we've created from the ground up.

When I started  Cobble Hill Farm Apothecaryin 2013, it was meant to be a "someday" retirement business. With all of the other soap & skincare companies out there, we honestly had no idea that it would even be a possibility of doing as well as it did so soon. But it has, and for that we are incredibly grateful. (I...

How To Fail At Homesteading.....

October 06, 2017


Ok, so the title is a tad bit dramatic.  But friends, it's simply reality.  I could teach a course on how-to fail at homesteading, particularly this year.

sigh......

Probably not a good thing since this is a homesteading blog. It seems that the attempt to keep all balls in the air whilst one also tries to also craft a homemade life is, um, not possible. At least not on this small homestead. And at...
