Hi! My name is Beth, a northern Wisconsin transplant that now lives in an old farmhouse in Wyoming with my husband and a black lab that has enough energy for three dogs.

This blog is an archive at this point; a collection of posts about stuff I did, 2011-2018. DIY stuff, crafty stuff, stuff I should probably leave to professionals but take a stab at anyway.

Now I mostly just hike, if I’m honest.


I may start up the old blog someday with new posts. Then again, I might not. For now, I am active on Instagram.

(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.
