Making Shift: 2013 in Review

This is post number 100 for Making Shift! And to celebrate this first year of Making Shift I wanted to share a few highlights from 2013.

Thank you, friends and readers, for celebrating this makeshift life with me.

  • In December my article "Creating a Resource Inventory for Your Homestead" came out in From Scratch magazine. You can read it right here by clicking on the magazine below. My article is towards the end on page 86. I was really excited to be included in this new magazine, which is about to celebrate its first birthday.

  1. I love your blog, Congratulations on your first year!

  2. I love this post. I've been browsing around Making Shift for a while, now I know all the hot spots to hit here. Your From Scratch article made me feel much better about the "stuff" we keep around "just in case." I really like the idea of elevating the accumulation of these random off-casts to the realm of intelligent resourcefulness.
    I'm also much more confident about building our chicken coop after reading about yours. I love the hand-built salvaged material look of it. So cool.
    Looking forward to all you do and post in 2014!

    1. Our chicken coop is seriously fugly but it's a good example of what can be done with true scraps! Thanks for the blog-love.

  3. Useful tips. I like your blog. Thanks for sharing : usefull site
