Family Homesteading and Off the Grid Blog Hop #41

How's your winter treating you? Yes, yes- it's still fall, but this cold snap certainly put things in perspective. Around here, we tend to see a slow-down in income during this season. As an adjunct teacher, winter break means no classes, so from the middle of December until the second week of January, there's no regular paycheck coming in.

But that's alright, because this isn't first time around the block. For about 10 years now, we've put a great deal of effort into meeting the holiday gift-giving need for quality, handcrafted products. Sure, the beehives are a new addition, but our New Hampshire WoodWorks site and Etsy store both do a robust business.

Not enough to retire on, mind you, but enough to carry us through the leaner times until classes start back up again. This means not only the bills are covered, but also Christmas, two birthdays and our bi-annual taxes. It can be stressful waiting to see the sales coming in, but they always do.

If you're looking for something special this year that doesn't come off a shelf at Walmart, we'd love to hear from you. Each handcrafted piece, whether it's a chess set or a cutting board is created with our philosophy of heirloom quality in mind.

Cheers, and have a wonderful week:)

Our featured blog post from last week was shared by Charlotte from over at Carolina Honeybees. Wendie and I have been planning to explore candle-making next season, and this was a perfect treat to read. Thank you for sharing your techniques with us, Charlotte:)
