The Spark

I had a blog once. Just a life-update/journal/share-too-much-emotion-on-the-internet blog.

It died.

Now I’m on to new adventures in life: I take on too many projects. I experiment in the kitchen. I ignore everything to read a book. We are figuring out how to be homeowner’s and diy-ers. I got sucked into diy natural beauty. I like to do art. I have a habit of researching the crud out of random topics that come to mind… and then suddenly I haven’t done anything and it’s time to make supper...

I get distracted a lot. In that first paragraph, I visited 5 different websites… make that 6.

So, I thought it might be fun to catalog all of my projects, experiments, failures, fun, etc. Will it die?


Will everything be off-season by 3 months?

Maybe. We’ll have to get over the fact that I don’t often get things done quickly. But I have a backlog of photos and ideas, so maybe I can at least give you a regular posting.

For the last 4 months I've thought about starting this blog, but: what do I call it? what’s the logo? what’s it about? what’s the design? who’s my audience? where should I host it? oooo, what should be my special topics on designated days?

Then tonight, I realized all those things can be revamped, right now, I just need to see if I can sustain it. So quit thinking and just start already.

Perhaps that’s long enough for the start. Hello!

I’m Kelsie. Married to my Nebraska Farm Boy. Living in Indiana with our dog, (Pepper)Jack. Seeking a simple house and a simple life, full of experiments and adventures… and we've got a long way to go.

This blog is an attempt to become more fully alive; to find the spark of life within and draw it out so the light can shine farther.

The Nebraskan thinks I’m a crazy driver, but I hope you’ll join us on this adventure!

You are as beautiful as a thousand red birds,
may you find the courage to shimmer and pulse
and spark into your life.


  1. I love your energy! I miss being around it when you get all excited about a project.

    1. Aw! I miss being around my girls to share all my projects with :)
