Hi! My name is Beth, a northern Wisconsin transplant that now lives in an old farmhouse in Wyoming with my husband and extremely chunky Bloodhound.

This blog is about stuff. DIY stuff, crafty stuff, stuff I should probably leave to professionals but take a stab at anyway.

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. The same goes for several social media accounts that I used to have and then deleted.)

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