Eat Make Grow Thursday Blog Hop #6

Welcome to this week's Eat Make Grow Blog Hop where you share what you have been eating with your family, growing in your garden or making with all your creative impulses. Eat Make Grow is a collective link party that is shared across three blogs and runs every Thursday-Tuesday. Whichever blog that you choose to link up your post, it will show up on all three sites! Eat Make Grow is a way to share with many people posts about your domestic doings, whether that’s growing veggies, hosting parties, sewing, mixing up cleaning supplies, or trying out a new recipe. We want to learn about it! Every week, we will feature the most popular link, and one chosen by the the host. This week, your host is Miranda (me!)

Your Hosts
Miranda from Pocket Pause
Foy from Garden. Cook. Write. Repeat.
Marigold from Hideous! Dreadful! Stinky!

We’re not big fans of rules so there are just two of them:
No big corporation or business advertising or promotional posts. Let’s not dilute Eat Make Grow with junky posts. We don’t mind helping out the little home grown businesses of independent bloggers or handmade merchants (Etsy, etc.).
Please link your posts back to one of the hosting blogs. This is a common blog hop courtesy. This link helps build the Eat Make Grow community by sending your readers to all of the other participant’s posts. We will feature two posts each week and we will only consider posts that have a link back. A text link is fine, or you can grab this button and put it anywhere on your blog:

Wow, my [Miranda's] turn again already! We had a nice turnout this week with over 80 linkers sharing their crafts, recipes and garden updates. There were some tantalizing looking treats out there, and some fun sounding projects. I don't know how you mamas out there do all this cool stuff, what with school starting this week (here in OR at least). You're an inspiration! Grab your keyboards for round 6 and let's get this linky party up to 100!

Our featured bloggers this week:

2 ingredient deodorant by "Too Many Jars in My Kitchen"

Adding to the countless "make your own deodorant" blog posts on the net is "Too Many Jars in my Kitchen." I'm a long time 'diy deodorant' gal myself, and she's spot on with her basic recipe. I've found that cornstarch can be irritating over time, but baking soda is definitely the key to staying odor free!

Since knitting my own version of an "elf hat" for my husband recently, i just had to choose this post to be featured this week. I don't crochet much anymore, but after peeking at this sweet project, i might have to try and whip a baby elf hat out myself, for my new nephew!

    Hi all!
