Our family's homesteading adventures in the mountains

Fun projects for baby

When we lived in Houston Katy and I were part of a Threads of Love group.  We crocheted edging on fleece blankets and made matching hats. The blankets went to the NICU at a local hospital.   I decided it was a perfect thing to make for our new baby.  I even made matching booties.   The second blanket is flannel on one side and minky on the other.  I also made coordinating burp clothes.    The last project is  nursing cover.  They sell for $35-$50.  That price is out of my budget so I made one.  I spent $7 and 30 minutes.  I am hoping to get a few more things made in the next few weeks.

Soap and lip balm

Recently I spent the morning in the kitchen creating.  I made peppermint cocoa lip balm, powdered laundry detergent and two kinds of soap.    I love making things like this and have considered making a business out of it in the future.  The laundry detergent is cheaper than anything I could buy and always comes out on top when I put it to the test against store bought detergent.  I am excited to try the soap (it just finished curing) as I experimented  little.  My two soap creations are lavender goat milk soap and oatmeal cinnamon goat milk soap.
