Diffuser blends to set intention in the new decade!
It's an exciting time of year as everyone begins to look toward the future and set their intentions for the new year. Some like to call them resolutions, but I have never felt good about using that term. Instead I like to sit and meditate during the week after Christmas. This is a good time for me to visualize and set goals. I begin to form a mental picture of what the new year will look like for me personally, with our farm, and our family. I always add essential oils to my routine, whether it be for a specifc meditation or for an intentionial daily support we need.
This new years eve also brings a new decade. What a wonderful new beginning! With all the excitement I decided to sit down and create six special diffuser blends for the new decade! Bring on 2020!
Using simple ingredients and basic techniques, you can enjoy homemade sausage in your next meal
Farm husband and I took our oldest son out hunting this past weekend. We used to hunt regularly but once we began building our home two years ago, we haven't had the time. Hunting is something we both enjoy doing and has been a part of our lives since we first met. There is a huge sense of pride to harvest an animal and "bring home the bacon" to your family.
This fall was my first ever antelope hunt. Antelope are not very large creatures and I have heard mixed things as far as taste goes. With a freezer newly stocked in beef, I decided to give sausage making a try! I was always intimidated by the process, but I found it to be quite simple once I decided which blends we would try!
How to keep Real Wood floors clean and shiny without nasty chemicals
When we moved into the farmhouse it was the first time I had real wood floors! We had laminate in the old house and I successfully cleaned them with my steam mop. I knew steam would not be a wood friendly routine so I started looking around for a new routine. Time and again I was faced with the latest and greatest products, chock full of chemicals that would disrupt hormone function, add to indoor air pollution among other things! I set out to create my own line of wood floor cleaners that would be super easy to make and use, sans harsh chemicals.
It's no secret I am a money saving mama! I like a good deal just like anyone else. I saved tens of thousands of dollars by general contracting when we built our house. So when it comes to essential oils, I had to find ways to squeeze every last bit out of those little bottles of goodness.
It takes experience to figure these little tricks out. Let me save you some time and show you my top four ways to put every last drop to good use!
I dreamed of the day I would get to create adorable clothes and playthings for my children. This halter top is one of the cutest pieces I've made and the first ever crochet pattern I ever wrote! It's super simple for even the most beginner to work up and can be done easily in an afternoon, even with kids asking for a snack every thirty minutes!
I'm a little hippy at heart and love to dress Little Miss like a boho baby. This halter was just the thing she needed. She's ready to hit the reggae concert with mama next month. Ha! Not really, that's date night with Farm Husband. ;)
I used a worsted weight acrylic yarn for the yellow halter at left but this pattern would work very well with a cotton yarn. You work this halter from the bottom up, finishing with the strings and adding the fringe last.
You can download the 12-24months pattern here or purchase the full pattern that goes up to size 6 here. If you are planning on using the free pattern to sell your handmade halter, please give credit to Three Seeds Farm and tag us or add our website! Thanks!
