When did it ever change?

Homemaking, put simply, is an art. Although it has been downgraded by successive generations, we should remember that it is one of the most important tasks you will ever do in your whole life. I don't mean this in a domestic goddess way, and i definitely never want to tell anybody how they should or shouldn't act.

I do mean, however, that there are some things which we hurry to do. I must admit there was a time when i avoided tidying up for the longest periods of time. However, it should be remembered that your home is a sanctuary, and it is where you feel safe. Out of the whole wide world, which we really don't have control over, we can control our own homely environment.

This is why homemaking is an art. The way you make visitors welcome, the scent in your own living space, the baking and the crafting. These things make us individual, and should never be overlooked.

This space is mine, yet you are all so very welcome to pop by any time you wish to. For this is a part of my haven, my homemaking heaven.
