Merry Christmas and where did the year go?!

I have no clue where the last 12 months went. Did they even happen?  The 6 month old sprawled across me sleeping would indeed indicate that they did. Between being pregnant, packing up the old place, buying a house, moving, having a baby and raising the baby, wow it has been a whirlwind!  Hopefully this coming year is a little more calm and collected.
On a happy note, I installed a WordPress app on my phone, so hopefully I can get more recipes and posts done. Fingers crossed! In the mean time, I just wanted to take a minute and wish you all a very happy holiday and wonderful new year!




Green Skies and Sugar Trips is now Burlap and Butter Knives!!

Happy New Year!  The name has changed, but it is still me here behind the screen. Well my screen, not your screen, that would be weird. 😉 After a bit of a break, for various reasons to be disclosed later, I am back; and this blog is going to be better than ever!  For those of you that were already subscribed to “Green Skies and Sugar Trips”, you will continue to get all the newest posts as they come out, delivered right to your inbox.  If you haven’t subscribed yet, you can do it  now on the right side of the page where it says “Subscribe to Burlap and Butter Knives! ”  🙂 The the facebook page is brand spankin new, so you will need to go and “like”  it to stay connected with me there. (A huge thank you to everyone that already did, ya’ll are on the ball!)

I am really looking forward to bringing you even more delicious recipes, gardening tales, canning information and whatever fun things we stumble into along the way.  If there is anything you would like to see here, I would love to post it for you!  Are there any topics in particular you want to learn about? Something you have always wanted to try making but haven’t? Let me know!  If you have cooking, baking, canning or gardening questions, post them here in the comment section, on the Facebook page, or email me,  I will be happy to answer them.

Thanks for being a part of this exciting new chapter!  Happy New Year, and here’s to an amazing year ahead! Cin Cin!
