Hi. I’m Liesl (pronounced lee-zul.) I’m a twenty-something living in rural Northwestern New Jersey on land that has been in my family for many generations. I love to read and sew and knit, garden and cook, find and listen to new (and old) music and take photos (especially with film) and explore the natural world around me. Recently I’ve been enjoying dyeing yarns with natural materials that I either grew or foraged for. My ultimate dream is to live a simple, self-sufficient-ish life as a homemaker. A small plot of land with a big garden and a little house with a big kitchen would be ideal.

About Liesl Made : The Blog
I put a lot work into creating original content for my blog. If you’d like to re-post more than one photo or a large amount of my content in one place, please contact me first. Also please understand that this blog is just a window into my life. Although I believe in being open and am very willing to share my home-y adventures, this is the internet and there are certain aspects of my life I don’t share and certain people I do not talk about here.

When I remember, I do the Amazon Associate Program where the links I share to products on give me a small percentage for the referral if you ended up buying something. Occasionally, you may see the phrase “c/o”. This stands for “courtesy of” and means the shop has sent me this item with the agreement that I would blog about it (by incorporating it into an outfit post, mentioning or reviewing it, etc) I would never accept anything I would not buy myself and I would never blog about an item I didn’t think was quality.

About Liesl Made: The Shop
In 2006, I started a small shop (also called Liesl Made) on Etsy. The shop is currently closed but I do hope to reopen in the future.

Want to say Hi?
