“Cultivating the Homestead Community”
Welcome to the 44th edition of the Homestead Barn Hop!
2012 is in full swing! I’m so excited to see what this fresh year holds. In case you missed it last week, I’ve been working on setting and reorganizing my goals for the year. Check out my 3 simple tips for setting homestead goals, as well as my personal lists of hopeful projects for 2012.
Also, since many of us spend more time indoors during the cooler months on our homestead, The Prairie Homestead will be featuring homemaking encouragement, tips, and ideas during the entire month of January. As much as I like being outside, I have to admit that it feels good to slow down and work on smaller projects around the house when the temps drop. The first installment of this series is all about using the sense of smell to make your home cozy and welcoming.
Now let’s get down to the business of this week’s Hop! I so enjoy visiting your homesteads each and every Monday. Thank you to everyone who has made it a success so far!
This hop is hosted by The Prairie Homestead, along with three other fantastic homesteading gals:
(We are saying farewell this week to Megan from A Blossoming Homestead, one of the original hostesses. She is moving into a very exciting phase of life and we wish her all the best! See you around blogland Megan!)
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.
Have fun, get to know some new homesteading friends, and be sure to join us every Monday!
