Frequently Asked Questions

Can I send you free stuff in exchange for promotion?
Probably not. I have weird taste. Lest you are in the business of producing Liberace gear or sloth art, I'm probably not your target demographic. If you are interested in sponsoring a post, please contact me directly emailauntpeaches@gmail.com. Let's see what we can do.
Can I link to one of your projects?
Of course! You are welcome to link up, repost single image files, or brief excerpts (100 words or less).

Can I repost one of your tutorials? I promise to link back and fiddle with the words enough to really "make it my own."

Where did the name Aunt Peaches come from?
Long story short but not-that-short: My family has called me Peaches for ages and I was proud to become Aunt Peaches when my niece was born in 2009. In fact, I was so proud, I used "Aunt Peaches 2009" as my login name when commenting on blogs and websites, including a couple which asked me to write contributor posts in 2010, which eventually sparked a conversation about "Aunt Peaches' blog", which eventually morphed into calling the blog AuntPeaches.com.  Then I bought the domain and that was that.

Wow, that was long.

What can I do to dye my coffee filters _(insert bridesmaid color here)__?
Easy Answer 1: Click here. Easy Answer 2: Get a stack of 50 filters, run them under water, squish out water, add acrylic paint, squish out more water, add paint, squish out more water, and repeat til they look how you want them. People ask me for specific dye recipes but I have long given up – every coffee filter brand contains a different level of starch or something that changes the rate of absorption. You will just have to try yourself. It's easier than you think, I promise.

I am new at blogging / My blog is very small / I want my blog to get more traffic. Do you have any advice on how to build my blog?
Figure out if you are blogging for yourself or for your audience. After you figure that out, the rest will follow. 

Why did you use a bad word in that post? Shucks, now I can't share it with my Pastor.
This blog is my personal sandbox. I write things down the same as they would fall out of my mouth, which, occasionally, may include some words that other people find offensive. I was not raised to hold any facet of language as forbidden. But that's just me. My opinion of what qualifies as "profane" might be different than yours. I won't hold it against you if you don't hold it against me.

I spotted a typo. Will you get offended if I let you know?
Goodness no. Please, by all means, let me know. In situations like this you are doing me a favor.

Can you write a post on __(this random thing that I am really interested in)___?

Maybe. Why not?


  1. I would love to get you post when you update but don't do any social media. Can you send them email box. If so how do I do that or you get them that way to me? Thanks I love you paper flower hats by the way. I wear hats each Sunday to church .

  2. Hi Peaches - just a short note to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. My boyfriend will even put down his beer to read the next thing Lola's thrown up on. Good times. Keep on writing and I'll keep on reading!

    1. Thanks so much! Glad you guys enjoy :)
