Weekend Giveaway: Homestead Blessings 11-DVD Set (2 Winners)

Would you like to learn how to bake your own bread from scratch, make your own candles, garden successfully, can produce, make homemade soap, and grow and use herbs? Freedom Film Distributors is giving away two 11-DVD sets of The Homestead Blessings Collection to my readers this weekend to teach you those skills and much more!

Kathrynne, Kaitlynn, and I have enjoyed watching these DVDs over and over and over. We’ve learned hundreds of new tips, we’ve been fascinated at the immense knowledge the West ladies have, and I’ve been inspired to think that even I — someone with little domestic creativity and ability — could pull off some of these things.

In fact, partially inspired by the West Ladies, my sister and I made homemade soap last year. Our big batch is finally used up, so we’re planning to make another big batch in the next few weeks.

Whether you are a novice or a pro, I guarantee you’ll learn something from these DVDs – and you’ll enjoy them, too. If you know someone who loves old-fashioned arts or would love to learn new homemaking skills, these DVDs would be the perfect gift for them. They are down-to-earth and packed with information and creative ideas.

The eleven-DVD set includes instruction in bread making, candle making, soap making, canning, gardening, herbs, cooking, dairy, quilting, and sewing. This deeply discounted set is the perfect tool to teach a wide-range of valuable and fun skills that will last a lifetime.

To enter to win The Homestead Blessings 11-DVD Collection, just click on the graphic below and type in your name and email address.Two winners will be chosen and posted on Monday. This giveaway ends Sunday, May 6, at 11:59 pm, CST.

    A giveaway that just keeps on giving!! I’ve watched several small segments via YouTube….ready to have the collection for my home! Especially for help starting our own garden. Well, and developing my sewing skills further. And soap making. Well, all of them!

    This is an awesome give-a-way! I could use watching everyone of these.

          :) weren’t you expecting a baby at the same time I was last year? I thought I remembered comment on a maternity clothing post to each other.

    My grandmother raised us and was blind. Her key to functioning was to have everything where she KNEW it was and not have us moving it around. Cookies with red pepper rather than cinnamon were not tasty! We never learned homemaking skills and this has been a HUGE challenge to me in my adult life. These videos would be a great resource to someone wanting to learn….

  5. Melanie says

    Thank you so much for offering these! I’ve seen them reviewed before and would be thrilled to have them.

    We have watched three of these videos from our library and really enjoyed them.Owning them would be a great resource for our homeschool library.

    • Mrs. R. says

      We did, too….we’re gonna rush over and send an entry right now. Thank you! :-)

    These look like very useful, entertaining and well produced videos; they are a very tempting expense.
    However, I have a philosophical question for you, Crystal. Even at the “deeply discounted” price of $135. that is still a lot of money for the homemaker with an average household income who needs to make every penny count. In your opinion, would spending $135. on these videos be a prudent use of limited resources? Would the information gained save the frugal household budget the cost of these videos, or could this information be gained more frugally elsewhere? Does $135 seem like a lot of money to you?

      Helen, the videos are entertaining, but you are not going to save money from having watchen them…at least not in any way that is directly related to these videos and their cost. They will show you garden practices like composting, planting herbs, mulching, etc., which you can easily pick up online or from a book. The cooking one shows specific recipes, not really techniques that you’ll apply to everything you make. I do enjoy the videos (my library has them) but the information is readily available from many, many other sources, and I’d go with library books if you are watching your pennies. (That is why I requested that our library purchase a set, so that I, and many others who are watching pennies, could see them without the expense.) Hope this helps! :)

        Laura,
        Thank you very much for your insights about these videos, and for the caveats about the soapmaking and canning instructions. I try to use my resources wisely and I really appreciate your candid response.

    I’ve looked at these several times daydreaming! How awesome for a chance to win the ENTIRE collection!! Woot!

    Please don’t use the canning video as your only source of information. There are several things in that video that are dangerous, such as heating the jars in the oven. The soapmaking one is a little sketchy too – if I remember right, she pours the water into the lye (you should always pour the lye into the water). Always research new skills with multiple sources! :)

    OH, I just adore the West ladies. I’ve been following their blog for awhile now…and the promos for their video series sound really, really good. Thanks for hosting sucha cool and practical giveaway, too :) :) Love and hugs from the ocean shores of California, Heather ;) :) :)
