Simple Homestead blog hop #133

Welcome to the Simple Homestead blog hop!

We're so glad you've stopped by for a visit! Every week we get together here for another hop and I hope you'll join us. The Hop runs from Thursday morning to Sunday evening. Have fun exploring all the great ideas that have been shared, and add your homesteading, homemaking and homeschooling posts with us if you're a blogger. I'm sure you'll be blessed and inspired by all these great ideas!

SmartSteader Giveaway, the new app for homesteaders!

Quinn at Reformation Acres is hosting a giveaway for her new SmartSteader homesteading app. With SmartSteader you can keep your homestead records right on your smartphone. Let's face it, most of what needs to be kept track of happens outdoors. If you're like me, you have your phone with you outside, but the paper and pen are indoors; this is the immediate way to keep record all that information! The giveaway is for 100 one-year subscriptions - yes, there will be 100 winners! Go here to enter the SmartSteader Giveaway. (Not an affiliate link, but I'll get another entry if you go enter too.)

  1. Wow...Thanks for featuring my Feather Ornament post. I am so very flattered to be featured!

    Have a great evening!


    1. The ornaments are so cute, Lisa!

    I love this blog hop. I made sure to show my wife and she is "obsessed" with the ornaments! The typical website that I have on my history usually consists of blogs full of survival tips. However, when I came across this site, I found it charming and full of fun stuff to do with the family. Thank you!

    1. Thank you, Conrad! I'm glad you enjoyed it. I hope you both come visit again. Merry Christmas.
