Kristin creates fresh and thoughtful food recipes as well as all natural body care products, and shares her recipes and the healing purposes behind the formulas.

This is one of my favorite photos! It is a product shot of Sweet Clara Crochet Top and Crystal Chain Necklace (both free patterns) featuring Be So Fine and Be So Sporty Yarns. But what you don’t see is that my son is taking the photo and we are dodging the cottonmouth snakes slithering in the hot gravel behind me! There was only a short window of time before the summer afternoon storms rolled in, and we were trying to get the shot without a snake disaster!
