Renee headshotIf you have been following me you will know that I am an inveterate do-it-your-selfer. I'll try making anything from scratch at least once. Sometimes I succeed. Sometimes I don't.

I'm pretty sure this comes from my life-long habit of penny pinching. Living on a ranch like I have has made me a person who will get by with nothing or, if I really need something, I will figure out how to make it myself.

Rarely do I ever just give in and buy it. I get a big satisfaction out of doing this and have fun in the process.
