Welcome and Contact

This will be the most awkward “about” page ever.  I hate them.

What I write about

I started this site in 2017 to document my crafts and recipes.  Somewhere along the way, I started writing about consumerism and contentment too.  As we started decorating our new house, I documented that process as well.

Then I realized that in a way they are all connected.  Being busy at home keeps you happy, as does having a cozy home that you enjoy being in.  That, in turn, keeps you from going out shopping constantly because you are bored and your house is cold and empty. The best way to save money and resist consumerism is not to wash out plastic bags, but to be happy with what you have.  And everything in this blog is about that in some way.

My Recipes

I only share recipes that I have altered enough that I consider them “mine”. I am super picky, as is every member of my family.  Only our very favorites are shared here.

Every recipe is from scratch and is a normal food.  Nothing fancy, expensive, or impressive, but they have been checked and rechecked and made multiple times.

My House

I am obviously not an interior designer. But I still like to share my ideas and things that have worked for me.  I find it awkward to be constantly putting out the disclaimer “this is just my opinion”, but of course everything here is, and I don’t want to pretend to know more than anyone else. 


I love getting comments and try to respond to each one. (If I don’t, it’s an accident!)

My email is heartscontentblog@gmail.com, and I would love to hear from you if you have any questions.

I’d like to sincerely thank you for stopping by. You can find me on Pinterest and Instagram if you’d like to stay in touch, or you can sign up to follow by email.
