The Mind to Homestead

Hi, I'm Kristi. I blog over at The Mind to Homestead (formerly Let This Mind Be in You) and host a podcast of the same name. I am a modern homesteader on .18 of an acre and love to garden, cook, crochet, sew, dabble in herbs, and spend time with my rabbit and chickens.

I have actually been a seller on Etsy off and one for a few years. I took a hiatus from selling for a while, but made the decision to re-open my shop when I decided to redesign my crochet patterns into PDF format.

I hope to, sometime in the future, offer handmade items, but for now, please enjoy my crochet patterns.

Welcome to The Mind to Homestead! I so appreciate you stopping in! Please read my store policies and feel free to message me if you have any questions. All of my items are from a smoke-free home, however, I do have 3 fur babies. While I am careful not to allow them near my fabric stash, yarn and other notions, there is always a chance that pet dander is present on an item, therefore, you purchase at your own risk.

I prefer Paypal (funded or cc payments), but I also accept personal check, or money order.

In the event that the buyer sends a personal check, the check will be deposited within 48 hours and the order will be shipped within 48 hours of the check's clearing.

If you need to cancel an order that has already been paid for, please do so within 48 hours of your order submission. In the event that happens, the buyer is responsible for all shipping charges incurred, and will be refunded once the item is safely back in my hands.
~For Paypal users: I ship within 48 hours of receipt of payment.

I stand by all of my work, and in the case that your item becomes damaged (i.e., stitches coming out, seams come apart, other problems with the construction of the item--not including stains, rips or other customer damages), please feel free to send the item back to me (buyer covers shipping costs), and I will do my best to repair it for you.
