The Art of Home-Making Mondays ~ Please Join Us ~ Link Up #98

"And when he comes, he finds it swept and put in order."
~  Luke 11:25
There are so many wonderful features in the making of a home. This is a place where I would love for you to share your love for anything home-related. Homemakinghomeschooling and homesteading are all a part of the lovely art of home-making!

~~Please link up posts in the spirit of Titus 2 and Proverbs 31 (such as recipes, godly encouragement, DIY's, frugal living, child-raising, medicine making, preparedness, gardening, home decoration, school lessons, sewing, crafts, etc).~~ You are welcome to share as many posts as you like!

* Please visit and leave some comment love
for a few of our features from last week's link up!
In addition, I thought it would be fun to feature all of the SPRING CLEANING posts which were shared last week for some extra homemaking inspiration:

Since we all think differently, it pays to have a variety of homemaking tools to choose from!

2. Spring Cleaning List Printable by Faithful With the Little

3. Spring Cleaning Checklist by The Traveler's Nest

4. Cleaning Collection of 10-Step Inspiration by me (I hope it is not too tacky to include my own post! :)

1. How to Protect Your Plants From Frost by Hillsborough Homesteading ~ Great gardening tips that can also be used for autumn gardens! 

2. Biblical Domesticity by Finding Joy in the Everyday ~ Love how Jo shares the difference between regular homemaking and biblical homemaking! It does matter! 

3. 20 Ways to Re-Use Kitty Litter Buckets by Oak Hill Homestead ~ I always appreciate a good recycling post to help run our farm more efficiently for less. 

4. Patient Enough to Homeschool by No Idle Bread ~ Stacie shares a humorous but heartfelt post on the truth about mothers who homeschool (this speaks much of my own personal patience-less experience and I say this with a smile!)

5. Blooming Spring Wreath by HMC ~ Monique shares a gorgeous spring wreath with us that will truly delight you! So whimsical and lovely!

In other news, I have been working on making the switch for this blog's printables to Google Docs since so many had troubles with the last program. Our latest addition is our lavender cleaning product recipes and labels. Happy housecleaning!

  5. It's not tacky at all to share your own! Thank you for the spring cleaning ideas. I need the encouragement. However, (mommy-brag alert!) last weekend my 11-year-old son decided to spring cling all of my kitchen cabinets and sorted out things not used for us to get rid of, put more-used items in more easily accessible places, and generally made me smile. :)

    1. Thank you Jody for your stamp of approval! :) And thank you for sharing what a blessing children can be in the home!

  6. As always Jes thanks for hosting.

  7. I'm in the mood for some spring cleaning and appreciate the tips :-) Another lovely party.

  8. Yes! I love spring, I mean I love it when it's done, rather. ;)
    Actually, all one needs for motivation is to open wide the doors and windows for a bit of true daylight, and oh, how dingy it all looks. I'm working on bedroom curtains and windows today.
    Ha, your posts are the ones I usually get ideas from so I reckon you're allowed to post as you please. LOL Btw, I was raised on Emily Post's etiquette, but what that sometimes produces is a seriously flawed attitude levied against those who don't (or don't know to) comply with the rules, which I think, is utter nonsense.
    Have lovely, happy day!

    1. Thank you friend! And I must agree, it is much more better when finished! :)
