Wow! Thanks so much for visiting!

Barefootin' it!

I spend ten days away from the blog, and big things happen while I’m not looking! Thank you so much to Vision Forum and Money Saving Mom for linking to me — I am so honored that you’ve noticed my little corner of cyberspace! And now I’d better get cracking and update the blog more often. 😉

Thank you to everyone who has left such sweet, encouraging comments. I’ve really enjoyed reading through them, and I’ll answer the questions that have been posted ASAP. I’ve been too busy lately to pay attention to the blog, but I should have time next week to share pictures of our dining room (you haven’t seen the bonus new floor yet!) and to chat about some of the amazing things we’ve learned as we’ve downsized. I feel like moving out here to our sweet cottage trailer has been a re-education. I thought I was pretty frugal before, but I’ve learned just how much more you can cut back when you’re willing to do it–and without feeling deprived, either!

So lots of fun things coming–sewing projects, veggie gardens in repurposed kiddie sandboxes, and living on the land (see the bare feet?). Cold weather has finally come, which means more indoor projects and putting on socks and shoes again.

Thanks again, y’all! I look forward to lots of fun posts in the near future!

Warmly,

Amanda


About the Queen…

Amanda Livenwell is the pen name of a stay-at-home mom who shares the adventure of living large on one income in, yes, a double-wide trailer! Join our family as we say goodbye to suburbia, trim down, and start saving to build our own home. We're going to talk about doing it yourself, living beautifully on less, making do or doing without, and counting it all joy in the process. We'll cover prep-work and painting, refacing kitchen cabinets, flooring on the cheap, tiling over laminate, upholstering furniture, and just rolling up our sleeves in general. If you love home improvement, this is the place for you. Let's get cracking!

What Inspires Me Most!

"She seeks wool and flax, and willingly works with her hands. She girds herself with strength, and strengthens her arms. She perceives that her merchandise is good, and her lamp does not go out by night. She stretches out her hands to the distaff, and her hand holds the spindle. She watches over the ways of her household, and does not eat the bread of idleness." ~ Proverbs 31:13, 17-19, 27

"Do you see a man who excels in his work? He will stand before kings;he will not stand before unknown men." ~ Proverbs 22:29

"The soul of a lazy man desires, and has nothing; but the soul of the diligent shall be made rich." ~ Proverbs 13:4
