Boerne Handmade Market!!!

I am still sore this morning.  And still SO thrilled.  Wanna shout from the rooftops how wonderful it was to see so many friendly faces and meet so many new people, to have sales like never before, to have a little helper who really wanted to be there with me! I guess the whole story of Boerne Handmade Market started for us in October of 2013, just three months after…

GUEST POST! By Gabriel Diego Delgado

I'm not sure how many of you know that I'm also a photographer.  For the last ten years I've only focused on children and families.  But for the first three years, I photographed everything.  I loved doing artsy prints, landscapes, and macro (where I was getting into the fine details of flowers and bugs).  It was beautiful.  But... I had more fun with little people.  Working with kids brought me…

Our Products in a New Store (Texas Highways Magazine Online Shop)

As long as I can remember, my dad has always had the Texas Highways Magazine in his stash.  These days, I'm following them (and their online shop) on instagram.  What better way to know what's going on in our beautiful state, find out about the coolest stops, see what new businesses are popping up, and learn about Texas makers?! The even cooler thing is- we've partnered with their online shop…

Our Products Went to Camp! And So Did I!!! (Camp Drunken Arrow)

Last year I was a sponsor.  But this year I got to be a sponsor AND a camper! So.... My adventure began a few weeks ago, when I had to start sterilizing jars and taking inventory of my ingredients.  Having everything ready, I got to work making dozens of fresh lip balms, healing salves, body scrubs, and warmer melts.  Add to those, a handful of postcards, and I had some…

TRAVEL TEXAS (Garner State Park)

My parents made their yearly reservations at their favorite place- Garner State Park.  And like always, we were invited along. Ben had plans that weekend, but Evan and I were up for the road trip! In the two days, one night, that we stayed.... We picked up a Texas Parks & Wildlife Parks Pass.  We spent A LOT of time floating in the river.  Evan snorkeled and tried out the…

The Kendall County Fair

Another fair in the books!  More fun had, more memories made, more accomplishments, more prize ribbons! The weekend started with me sneaking over to the fairgrounds to check the big chunk of our entries.  It was a great kickstart to the fun! I did well.  My chocolate muffins won third place.  My pineapple cake won second (I still have yet to beat the Italian cream cake that always wins first!).…

TRAVEL TEXAS (South Padre Island)

We did it again!  Our annual beach trip to South Padre! Lots of sand, sun, and sea.  Froyo every day.  A fun outing.  Lots of great food.  And not a single lick of sunburn. How do I do it?  Careful planning, budgeting, packing, routine, and sunscreen!     Where do we stay? Every year, it's Seabreeze Beach Resort.  Love going back!  It's an older complex, but.... It's right on the beach!…

TRAVEL TEXAS (Hamilton Pool)

It has been over two years since I heard about (and have started dreaming about) Hamilton Pool.  Nestled into our beautiful Texas hill country, it seemed like such an incredible little oasis.  But I let that first summer slip by.  Disappointed but curious, I went ahead and just planned on a day of hiking and exploring around the area during the winter.  It lived up to the hype... and was…

TRAVEL TEXAS (Happy Camper)

Evan has asked me on a couple of occasions, "Mom, You like old things, don't you?"  Yep.  I love old furniture and homes.  I love adding vintage touches around our house and yard.  I kinda love old people.  I've always wanted to own a vintage Ford Mustang.  And I dream of antique campers.  When we were worrying about finding a new location for From Scratch Farm, I actually began looking for…
