The art of homemaking is more than shining floors or ironed shirts, it is a way of life for many men and women. Beyond the daily chores routine, many homemakers teach children, volunteer their time, garden, or create a loving environment enriched by dutiful hands. Texas Homemaking seeks to encourage homemakers through crafts, useful tips, goal setting, organizing charts, daily deals, family issues, homeschooling, and more.
Texans sure know how to celebrate Spring! I've shared some of my favorite festivals throughout the state. We will be attending a few of these this year and I hope your family enjoys them as much as we do!
If you go, take pictures and share them with me! I'd love to see what you thought made a festival unique or special.
