I am attempting to start a compilation of my inspirations, projects, and ideas...from scratch.
My first inspiration is my dear mom. Whenever we go shopping, she usually proclaims, "Ah. Don't buy that; I can make it." From soap to chocolate cake to socks - she makes it from scratch. Starting from the raw ingredients, she taught me that most everything (except nylons) can be made at home. She now specializes in homemade soap using home-grown ingredients from their ranch in eastern Montana, called Pure Prairie Soap. It is amazing stuff. She is an amazing woman.
