It's almost graduation time!

One of the most popular gifts to give at graduation parties are cards.

As the proud parent of a graduate this year, I wanted to create something unique for people to place those special cards in.

The New Pioneer Magazine Summer 2017


The New Pioneer Magazine Summer 2017 issue is now available!

This magazine is amazing, always full of great ideas.

I am honored to have 2 articles in this issue.


The first article is about home canning.  Something I've talked about here on the blog before.  My Mom used to can heavy volumes in her summer kitchen.  Generations before her canned as a life necessity.  Although I don't can like they did, I do dabble in home canning.  I involve my girls in the kitchen as much as possible, and I am thrilled to say that they are part of this article.


The second article is another DIY project that Handy Hubby made for our small farm.  It is a slow hay feeder.  Before this we just threw hay on the ground, which was a waste of money!  The cows trampled on and used the bathroom on it, wasting a lot of it.  If you have livestock that you feed hay, this DIY is for you!  

The magazine is available at most places where magazines are sold or you can order on line.

Happy Reading!
