Assorted Categories

It is hard for me to fit everything into a few assorted categories. I know that a blog should be focused and cater only to those topics that the readers are interested in. There are countless articles that mention a blog should focus on three areas at most. However, throughout the year, things happen or I make something that just doesn’t fit into the recipes, Crochet, Sewing, or Starting a DIY Blog categories. That is where the This and That category comes in. It is a potpourri of topics that are a bit extra. It is like having a bakers dozen. Many years ago, when a person purchased a dozen donuts at a bakery, they would put in 13 donuts instead of 12. That was called a bakers dozen.

Potpourri of Topics

This page consists of a patchwork of topics that may still be of interest to readers. Topics might include gift baskets, decorating Easter Eggs, or even a great list of ideas for Mother’s Day. So, as a variety of ideas bubble up, they will be shared on this page.
