• About our cloth pads – styles, sizes, shapes explained, part 2

    Today I’ll be continuing to share about each size and style of cloth pads we offer.

    The last and largest liner size that we offer is our Light Wrap Wing pad which is approx. 8 inches in length. These pads/liners, like the light comfort contour and tiny liner are good for a light flow and light incontinence. They are also great for teens/preteens and smaller framed women. The width of this pad works well with wider undies on it’s wider snap setting.

  • New year rambles, goals, pigs, writing, walking and more

    It’s January 2nd, 2016, er, .. I mean, 2017 and we’ve done so much already. I’m tired just thinking about it.
    But in a good way. In a “I’ve got my list, and I’m getting things done” kind of a way.

    Speaking of lists, in the back of my prayer journal this morning I made up a list of goals I’d like to accomplish each month. I’m not real big on ‘resolutions’, but I’m very big on goals. Not just on New Year’s day though, all the time. I actually LOVE Monday’s even, for this very reason. Monday’s are a chance to start a whole new week with a whole new set of goals!

  • About our cloth pads – styles, sizes, shapes explained, part 1

    When beginning with cloth, all the varieties can be confusing. There are so many different styles, sizes, shapes, fabrics, absorbencies AND even a wide range of prices!

    I’m going to do my best to briefly explain the differences between all our pads.

    One of my teen daughters (who also use cloth!) will be in touch with you to ask some questions, and mostly to give you an opportunity to share your story about how you began using cloth, and how you feel about it. Any tips you may have for other teens who are considering trying cloth will be greatly appreciated too. You can share your story anonymously, or if you have your own blog, youtube channel, or even your very own shop (I know some of you teens are great entrepreneurs!!) we will certainly consider sharing your links in the blog post(s) about these interviews. 🙂

  • A Night On The Homestead

    I’m all out of things to write today, so I thought I’d share something I wrote a while back that was published in Bear Essential Life magazine.
    I love the cartoonist depiction of my story!

  • The United States of America has a new President. What to do now?

    Many have spent the past 18 months voicing their opinions very loudly on why Trump should not be voted in. Perhaps some of that time would have been better spent listening to why your fellow country men and women did not agree with you. Perhaps further discussion could have occurred if over half of your population had not been quieted, but instead been encouraged to share, and been heard.

  • Death of a pet

    Instead, I asked myself what would I want if I were Teagan? I know, again, some are moaning that he’s ‘just’ a dog…. But he’s MY dog. He’s MY responsibility right to the end. So I asked myself, what do I want in these days that could be Teagan’s last?

  • The History of Homestead Emporium

    As we celebrate our 12th year of creating, selling, and shipping our products all over the world, I’ve been reminiscing the past years in business.
    I thought I would share a bit of history with you about the beginnings of Homestead Emporium, and how we got to where we are now!

  • Taking a leap

    For many years now I’ve struggled with one thing that I can not seem to shake.
    Fear.

    If you’re up for it, stick around.
    The future could be a train wreck you won’t want to miss.
    Or… maybe… just maybe…
    You’ll see me learn to fly.
