Hi. I’m Liesl (pronounced lee-zul.) I’m a twenty-something living in rural Northwestern New Jersey with my family on land that has been in our 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. 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 Amazon.com 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. After a year and a half long hiatus, I reopened in late summer of 2013. I’m hoping to re-launch in 2014 with all new goods.
My Dad also has a shop on Etsy where he sells handmade wooden wares. It’s called Buckaloo View. I take all the photos and help with some of the technical aspects, like running the Facebook page and the portfolio.
