Welcome Friend!

Hi! I’m Essie. I love spending time in the kitchen, crafting, and decorating my home. I created this blog to share some of my favorite recipes, crafts, and home design ideas with you. When I’m not in the kitchen or crafting, I enjoy spending time with my husband and our dog, Baxter.

Happiness is homemade is a blog about my journey to making my home a happy and comfortable place for my family. I believe that homemade recipes, crafts, and design can bring happiness into any home.

When it comes to food, I love trying new recipes and experimenting with different flavors. While I try to focus on plant-based recipes, I also love making desserts (who doesn’t?). My husband loves to try foods from different cultures, so I often make dishes from different parts of the world.

I’m also a big fan of crafting, particularly tiny homes and dollhouses. I love finding new and creative ways to use everyday materials to create something special. Taking the time to make something by hand is so rewarding, and I love seeing the final product.

I love working on home design projects. Recently, we finished redoing our kitchen and I am now working on designing a new living room. I love finding ways to make our space more beautiful and functional.

I can’t forget my plant babies! I have several houseplants that I’ve been growing for a few years, and I love taking care of them. I’m always looking for new plants to add to my collection.

If you’re looking for some new ideas for recipes, crafts, or home design, I hope you’ll find something here that inspires you. Thanks for reading!
