One Flourishing, Frugal and Fun Family!

One mother making ends meet and surviving today's recession by writing. One family learning to live off the land, cut back on expenses, and to live a simpler and a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

More Finished Gifts



I finally finished the baby bonnet and booties for the expected baby next month.  I used two free patterns from the Internet - Granny Square Baby Bonnet and a bootie pattern on Bernat yarn site (you have to register to print it).


This morning I sent my 4th grader to school with a teacher gift and bus driver gift.  It's the last year she'll be riding the elementary bus.  Each one received a jar of homemade Cinnamon Honey Butter, and a knitted dishcloth.

The school held a Choir concert this morning.  It was during school hours this morning.  Today is the last day of school before their Christmas break starts.

Oh the hat and booties are so cute. I sure miss having a baby around, my four Grand daughters are growing up so fast.
Good ideas on the teacher gifts.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.
