Easy Repurposed DIY Projects

I hope you all had a very happy holiday this year. The ending of 2021 looks a little bit different for us...

A rush to find testing made for a stressful Christmas week for us and not celebrating with the grandchildren again this year was sad. 

To top it off my father's health is failing so to say we look forward to saying goodbye to 2021 is an understatement.

We are leaving a very strange year behind and looking forward to 2022 with hope and faith. 

Today I'm remembering better times and sharing 10 DIY Homeroad posts from 2021.
