Weekend Links

Homemade foaming facial cleanser… the recipe I’ve been using and loving. I shared my tutorial this week on Simple Homemade.

Links I loved this week:

 The Christmas Conundrum @ Jen Hatmaker (this just needed to be said. Go Jen. Hat tip to Red and Honey for linking to this post.)

Misleading Product Roundup: Don’t Be Fooled @ 100 Days of Real Food (Lisa does a fantastic job revealing products that you might think are ok- – and that’s what the food industry wants you to think– but they aren’t. Are any of them in your kitchen?)

Why I need the neediness of my kids @ Inspired to Action

Squash and Parmesan Crustless Mini Quiches @ Simple Bites

maple vanilla pecan pie with sprouted spelt crust @ Nourished Kitchen (drooling all over my keyboard…)

All kids have special needs @ Simple Homeschool (I couldn’t agree more. Jamie, you knocked it out of the park with this one.)

And, perhaps the best thing you’ll read all month… the Compassion Bloggers trip to Peru. You can read all of the blog posts here. Take the time to read at least some of them. You won’t regret it.

This week…

What I made: Brilliantly pink icing on chocolate cupcakes for my daughter’s 8th birthday. The pink icing? Not a speck of food dye. I was so pleased with them!

What I’m buying: A rainbow palette of playsilks for my children’s Christmas presents. I can’t wait to see their delight as they find creative ways to use them.

What’s coming up: Remember that incredible ebook bundle a few weeks back, with $300 of ebooks for just $29? Well it’s coming back, on Cyber Monday! And? It’s even better than before. Just you wait. :)

Hope you all had a blessed Thanksgiving celebration!

Confessions of an imperfect homemaker

Homemaking is hard work (believe me! I know)! Managing the house, the finances, the marriage, kids, cooking, schooling, pregnancies and working from home can be so overwhelming. Yet in this "I can do it on my own" day and age, we so often don't know how to ask questions or even who to turn to for help. In my own journey as a homemaker, I was shocked at how little I knew when I first started on this path.

The Ultimate Homemaking Bundleis a complete library of carefully selected eBooks, eCourses, audios, online conferences, and printable packs from many of the top homemaking bloggers and writers on the web, to help you be the best mom and homemaker you can possibly be. It's the kind of thing I wish I had back in those days when I felt so lost and alone.

Valued at over $1290 but at a price tag of just $29.97, this is one tool your home can't do without!

Plus, everyone who buys a bundle through Keeper of the Home gets a bonus 2 oz. liquid herbal remedy AND our very own 4 ebooks, all designed to help you with more affordable, healthy homemaking. Learn more HERE.

But time is running out! The Ultimate Homemaking Bundle will only be available from 8:00 a.m. EST on Monday, April 20 until 11:59 p.m. EST on Monday, April 27. motionmailapp.com

  1. I love the food dye free icing!! What’s the trick?

  2. Thanks so much for the link to Simple Homeschool, Stephanie!!

    • You’re so welcome, Jamie. I really appreciated what you said. I don’t love all of the special needs labels, and I think that it’s so important to recognize that every child (and parent!) has their quirks and different needs, and especially that we aren’t required to “fix” anyone or bear that burden. Wise words, my friend. :)

  3. How do you make the icing? I have a friend whose son is allergic to red dye, and she would LOVE this!

  4. holy typos! nursing at keyboard here :)

  5. thanks for the hat tip :) jen post is hands-down the best thing i’ve ever read on the santa thing. LOVED it. thanks for some more great links :)
