With Spring finally here, the bugs have been out in full force here in Arkansas. Add to the fact that springtime projects have started means bites, scrapes, and cuts are inevitable. One of my favorite things to keep on hand for such minor injuries is my Homemade Calendula Balm. The Calendula helps to soothe the skin and has anti-bacterial properties to help cuts and scrapes heal.

DIY Livestock Feed Bin! Gravity Fed Feed Bin!

DIY Livestock Feed Bin! Gravity Fed Feed Bin!

As our little homestead starts to grow with more animals, we were in desperate need of a way to store feed. We were using metal trash bins, which worked great. They could store a 50lb bag of feed and tops sealed pretty good to keep unwanted scavengers out. The only problem I found with this storage was it only held 1 bag at a time, and when I needed to add another bag, if there was any feed left, it would sit at the bottom. With this new DIY Livestock Feed Bin the oldest feed comes out the bottom and I can now add new feed to the top with no waste!

The Holidays are officially here, which means I am in gift making mode! There is just something special about a good homemade gift! Especially when it is made well and with care. While I love making cold process soaps, lotions, and candles. I wanted to make something special for the men on my holiday shopping list. So, this year I made them all Homemade Shaving Soap. It is great for shaving, and I even love to use it in the shower to shave my legs. It just has a nice, rich creamy lather that other cold process soaps just do not have.
