Blogging Anniversary Day 3

Be sure to enter my other two giveaways for this week:
Today is my third and final day of giveaways celebrating one year of blogging!  I have another awesome lineup for you!
I want to first thank you all so much for entering this week!  I am having so much fun hosting these 3 days of awesome giveaways, meeting new people, sharing these wonderful sponsors with you!  I really enjoy purchasing from and supporting small family businesses, don’t you?
One winner from today’s giveaway will receive:

*2 Bars of Soap From Hen & Chicks!
Hen & Chicks soap is the first handmade soap I ever used.  In the past I had a bad opinion of the costly and stinky (seriously) perfumed handmade soaps I would smell here and there.  I was so surprised when I tried a handmade soap from Hen & Chicks that smelled great, was affordable, and was so silky and luxurious!  I have been hooked on handmade soap ever since then!  Hen & Chicks soap is made with organic ingredients, and Angela is always creating such unique scents and combinations!  I love to visit her blog to find out what she’s cooking up next!
Here’s her current soap available in May~
  • Mojito (Spearmint and lime)
  • Sweet Licorice
  • Lemonhead
  • Lemongrass Ginger Tea
  • Honey & Oats 
  • Tiger’s Tail
  • Lavender Dream
One winner will receive 2 bars of soap from Hen & Chicks.
*”Your Custom Homestead” Ebook written by Jill @ The Prairie Homestead! (She has an awesome name, don’t you think? ;))
“Do you:
  • Dream of having a homestead someday?
  • Live in an apartment or urban setting and long for the country life?
  • Have plans to turn your city lot or rural land into a place to grow food for your family?
  • Longingly read books, blogs, and magazines about small farming but have no idea how to start?
  • Ever feel frustrated because you think you’ll never be able to afford to buy land and move to the country?
  • Lack focus and motivation when it comes to growing your current homestead?
If you answered ‘yes’ to any of these questions, then this eBook is especially for you.”
Some of you may know that my husband and I purchased about 6 acres of land 3 miles from where we currently live, and we are beginning a small homestead of our own.  Our desire is to eventually live as self-sufficient as possible, and this ebook is a big help in our homesteading adventure!
Read what others are saying:

21 days to homesteading? Absolutely! Jill’s book takes you through her own personal homesteading journey to help you to find your own way to self-reliance, whether you live in an apartment, condo, city, suburb or country. You don’t have to wait for the perfect situation, you can start homesteading…today! I highly recommend this book.”

-Kelly from The Morris Tribe

Right from the beginning, I appreciated Jill Winger’s new eBook, Your Custom Homestead. She’s taken the very broad subject of homesteading and defined it so as to give this modern movement structure that is sorely needed. Urban and rural readers who put her eBook into practice will walk away with clear goals as well as a renewed hope for homesteading. So if you’ve been afraid to put your foot in the water because you don’t know where to begin and you’re scared you may wade too far out too soon, Your Custom Homestead will help you think through your goals and dreams in an organized way so that you’ll find a firm footing once again. Homesteading wherever you are really can come true!”

The winner for today’s giveaway will receive a $20 gift certificate to Joyfully Sewn Designs, 2 bars of Hen & Chicks Soap and 1 copy of “Your Custom Homestead”!

    I would like to know more about the idea of homesteading. We have always wanted to raise chickens, but living in the city we are not sure how to go about doing it. NOt sure about the law restrictions etc.
