  • Wanted! Teens to be interviewed about using cloth! You could win a $25.00 gift certificate!

    Homestead Emporium is looking for some teens to be interviewed by our teens, about using cloth!12251990846_0b85bb90bc_b

    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. 🙂

    So if you’re a teen, or you have a teen daughter, who uses cloth products for your monthly cycle we’ would appreciate you getting in touch with us!

    All those who contact us and have successful interviews will be entered into a draw for a $25.000 gift certificate from HomesteadEmporium.com!

  • 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.

    This is meant to be fun and encouraging. Just a way to keep one another accountable to accomplish the things in our lives that we’re aiming for. For us right now, that’s a clutter free home!

    My skin care blend

    This blend is all that I use on my face every day. It works wonders in every way, even in our harsh prairie summer sun and blistering cold winters! Since switching to essential oils for my face care, I haven’t had a single issue with eczema or psoriasis like spots! My face is seriously as soft as a baby’s bottom. There, I said it! lol

    A new school year… minus the school! What to do, what to do?

    So there you have it. My big long ToDo list now that we’ve finished school.
    How about you? Do you have any new plans this year? Are you going to be decluttering or organizing your life? Or perhaps you’ve been wanting to, and need a little push to just do it, or help on how to start? Here’s a handy list I saw on facebook the other day! Maybe it’ll help some of you too!
