Stretching that chicken into 8 meals

Wow! I never dreamed one while chicken could go this far! Angie really did a great job with this!


Definitely give this a try to see if it works for you. Come back and leave a comment so others know how it works out for you.

Repurposed Feed Bag = Tote Bag

The livestock feed companies have begun using that plastic-y paper for the feed bags now. I have a love-hate relationship with that stuff. It is not easily recycle-able and does not break down well in landfills. BUT with just a little bit of sewing know-how, you can turn them into reusable tote or grocery bags.

I love the Purina Layena bags! Did you know that in October, their blue bag is pink instead, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month? Talk about making into a great bag with that sack!

Any feed sack will work for this, but the plastic-y paper is going to be what you are looking for to make the totes.  Imagine taking these to the grocery functioning as reusable grocery sacks! Turn some heads, eh?

When you make some of these, be sure to head over to our Facebook page and share some photos!

That Old Potting Soil

I just loved this article. I am so guilty for letting my pots sit around all winter with dead plants.

Identy Crisis

In case no one noticed, I seem to be having a major identity crisis.

I really like the original name of this blog, Heritage Homemaker.  Just Being Me..... It's just tooooo long for a name, I think.

Now we have named our little homestead Eason Acres, and I want to use it for a name, too.

I eventually want to use our homestead name domain, easonacres(dot) com, but I also don't want to lose followers.

I would love to move to Wordpress, but again, don't want to lose readers....but at the same time I love Blogger, just wish it had a few more options.

I am going to stay put with the name I love for my blog, Heritage Homemaker, and stay put here on Blogger. Sometimes, my posts may seem out of the realm for "heritage" or "homemaker" or for "Eason acres".....just gonna have to be that way.

So, I am going to do something today I enjoy. Re-designing my blog :-)
