Now, on to this week’s Barn Hop!

This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with three other fantastic homesteading gals:

Amy from Homestead Revival, Kendra from New Life on a Homestead, and Megan from A Blossoming Homestead!

We encourage you to stop by every Monday and share your latest homesteading posts with us. From cooking to animals to gardening, we want to hear what’s been happening at your homestead this week!

Some Simple Guidelines:

1. Remember to provide a link back to the Homestead Barn Hop in the post that you share. Feel free to grab the banner at the top of this post, if you would like, and use it to link back to us!

2. Please link to a specific post, not your blog’s main page.

3. If you don’t have a blog, share your latest homestead updates in a comment on this post!

4. We, the hosts of the Barn Hop, reserve the right to remove any link that we deem inappropriate or offensive. We will err on the side of caution.

    Thank you for hosting:) Today I have shared a recipe for homemade shampoo bar soap and an article highlighting 15 potentially free gift ideas to show someone you care! I hope you are having a great Monday. I’m off now to read a few of these inspirational posts:)

    Thanks for hosting, Jill, and Merry Christmas!

    Today I linked up a post titled “Winter Vehicle Maintenance Checklist and Preparing a Winter Emergency Vehicle Kit”:

    If folks are traveling for the holidays, I recommend you take a look at list and kit and make sure you have what you need to travel safely.

    May all of you be blessed (and safe!) this holiday season.

    I didn’t even know I’d won Thursday’s drawing (and I’m soooo excited for that prize by the way!!!) I’m not sure what to do next though. Thanks!
