Hatching Chicks: Part One

Part One This year is the first time that I have tried incubating eggs. Granted last year was the first year that we even raised chickens, so I guess it is the next logical step. Anyways, I was agonizing over the details and was pretty convinced after a week that none of the eggs were…

Soil Blocking

I read about soil blocking on various websites after seeing a Ladbrooke Soil Blocker on Amazon (affiliate link). I was curious – I had never heard of a soil blocker before, but anything that could save us some money in our garden was worth some research. I had been using jiffy pellets that last two years,…

Tiberius

Ty! NO! OUTSIDE! Not again… I can’t help but feel frustrated as, yet again, Ty squats to urinate on the freshly steam cleaned carpet. I also feel thankful that he hasn’t learned to lift his leg yet, so at least for now the furniture is safe. I know I wanted a puppy. I asked my…

Mountain Oasis Homestead Creations

Stuck on Hookin’ is now Mountain Oasis Homestead Creations. We have gone through a lot of changes in the past year in a half, and with that the name of the shop along with the blog have gone through a change. I’m now working full time (and then some) as a physician assistant in a…

Exciting New Things in the Horizon for Stuck on Hookin’

I can’t begin to express how excited I am for upcoming events with Stuck on Hookin’. First off, the Harry Potter Sorting Hat was a hit in some crochet circles recently. Thousands of likes, shares and comments have convinced me to work on a pattern. In the next few weeks I will be getting started…

Photography Special and Photo Release

Stuck on Hookin’ is excited to announce a new partner in crime – Chasing Adalyn Photography! A mutual friend introduced us via facebook (social media win for once!) so Stuck on Hookin’ may be getting some professional photos! I’m kind of new at this, so the whole photo/model release and all that wasn’t even on my radar,…

Patchwork Fleece Blanket DIY Tutorial

I am super excited about this tutorial! I stumbled onto this project because I have a bad habit of stock piling fleece from the remnants bin at Hancock Fabrics (which if you haven’t been there, the remnant rack is AMAZING for getting inexpensive fabrics if you don’t need more than a yard). Actually Hancock Fabrics…

Star Herb Drying Rack DIY Tutorial

After two years of not really being able to have a garden, I’ve finally started growing herbs again, meaning I was going to need a place to dry them in our new home. We don’t have a lot of space, so I needed something small, but I wanted to have something decorative also. Luckily we…

Newborn Photo Props

I’m finally starting something that I’ve wanted to do for a LONG time. I’m making newborn photo props! I’ve made a couple over the years, but given my bestseller is my Magikarp and I’ve been in school it’s been something that’s been on the back burner for sure. The first one I ever made is…

Charity of the Month

Starting this month, Stuck on Hookin’ is going to start donating 10% of the proceeds over the course of a month to a charity. Also I will be having a “charity special” meaning that a certain item, somehow related to the organization will have 15% donated to that charity during it’s month, and then 10%…

Kali and Durga’s Story aka Taming Feral Kittens

These beautiful furballs have not always been as calm and cute as they seem here. Bringing them around to this has been almost a year long process, and we’re still working on socializing them to people other than Cody and myself. I wanted to share our little story, even if it only encourages one person to…

A Year Full Of Ups and Downs

So a lot has happened in the past year. Hence the reason for so few posts – even the most recent one that I posted was over six months in the works! So first off I moved in with my SO in our tiny little 50ft x 10ft trailer with our four pups. I can’t…
