Italian Seasoning or Rub (Parsley, Sage, Rosemary & Thyme)

Posted by Hallee on Oct 4, 2013 in Gardening, Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Italian, Preserving, Recipes, Spices & Rubs

When reading the first four ingredients to this mix, if an old song that goes, “Parsley, sage, rosemary, and thyme” doesn’t get stuck in your head, then you probably think I am REALLY old.

Smarties Airplanes

Posted by Hallee on Feb 13, 2013 in Gift Ideas, Parenting, Raising boys

When I asked Scott what kind of Valentine he wanted for his class party this year, he said he wanted to make a Valentine. I was so happy about that, because I’m all about homemade when I can.

Because I’m making Valentine’s for boys, and not girls, I had a bit of a challenge. So many of the crafts are very feminine – and that just wouldn’t be as much fun for them. I settled on a Smartie Airplane.

Thinking of Christmas in June

Posted by Hallee on Jun 1, 2012 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

Homemade vanilla extract makes a beautiful gift come Christmastime. It’s something most people don’t think to make or know how to make, and the pure, real stuff is expensive. Put it in a neat little jar and you have an easy, loved, homemade gift.

Valentine’s Day Gifts From the Kitchen

Posted by Hallee on Feb 10, 2012 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

One of the reasons I love Valentine’s Day is because there are so many different from-the-kitchen crafty ideas – easy, inexpensive, fun ways to show someone you love them. You can keep it as simple as some construction paper and paper doilies, or go as extreme as cookie flower bouquets.

Planning for Christmas Baking

Posted by Hallee on Dec 7, 2011 in Gift Ideas, Holiday fare, Life, menus & menu planning

As I write this, it’s December 6th and we have just under three weeks to prepare for our Christmas baking gift giving. This is a tradition my mother taught me, and something I look forward to and plan for every single year.

Valentine’s Day Treats for School

Posted by Hallee on Feb 8, 2011 in Gift Ideas, Hallee's Galley, Holiday fare

These treats were made for Kaylee’s 4th grade teachers and school administrators — so, 3 years ago. They weren’t designed to offer any kind of tutorial in how to do them, so I apologize for that, but they give you an idea of how easy it is to put together something personal, something special for those people in your life whom you want to gift with Valentines.

Christmas Craft: Lighted Jar

Posted by Hallee on Dec 14, 2010 in Gift Ideas, Housekeeping, Life

I saw these at a craft show. The woman had a huge display all lit up and they were so beautiful. Looking closer at them, I realized how easy they would be to make.

Posted by Hallee on Dec 14, 2010 in Gift Ideas, Housekeeping, Life, Stewardship

For less than half of what I would have paid for a wreath already put together, I spent less than 10 minutes making my own:
