Hi! My name is Beth. I am a woman (hear me roar) from northern Wisconsin that now lives in an old farmhouse in Wyoming with my husband and an extremely chunky Bloodhound.

This blog is about stuff. DIY stuff, crafty stuff, and lots of landscape pictures. I hike, I try to find every ghost town within a 400 mile radius, I take pictures, and raise chickens.

I started this blog in 2011, having no clue what I was doing. That hasn’t changed much, but I enjoy it anyway.

(NOTE: If you came here looking for something specific and can’t find it, it’s probably because I deleted it. I deleted over half of this blog in July of 2018. Though I aimed to only delete the things no one ever reads, there may have been a before-coffee moment when I accidentally deleted a bunch of posts people actually do read. Whoops. It’s gone forever now, so make peace with it. The ephemeral qualities of life, and all that.)

I’d love to hear from you! Shoot me an email at blacksprucehound [at] gmail.com.
