Being a mom is the hardest thing I've ever done, but it has brought me so much joy! I want to encourage other moms on their journey, I'll share motherhood tricks, spotlight tips I've learned from friends, and I hope you will share your ideas. I will focus on secrets that help families stay balanced, healthy, frugal, creative, and closely knit. I will also share favorite fiction and nonfiction books that I have enjoyed. Many blessings to you on your mothering journey!

Time for Mending

I've had a little stack of items to mend for at least a month. It keeps growing, but I never take time to actually do it! I tried something new today. I took the mending with me in the car. My DH drove and I mended my son's blanket. It was actually my blanket as a little girl, and he has loved it to pieces. It's been mended many times, and I'm not sure how much longer the crocheted pattern can last. But I'll do my best!

Next time DH is driving, I'll tackle two velcro shoe straps that have come apart. Then I need to stitch the hem on one of my favorite skirts. But I'll have to use the iron to patch my DH's pants. I think that will get me to the bottom of the mending pile!

If you haven't yet learned to sew a button and make simple slip stitches, ask a friend to teach you how. It's super easy to do, and it will save you tons of money from repairs at the dry cleaner or replacing clothes.
