herbs for fighting colds and flus...and really, there are tons of great links to PDFs for your prepper notebooks over at Truth is Treason
World War II mini books for your lapbook fun
a cute kerchief
a great basketweave hoodie in sizes regular thru 4x, pattern for just $1
a V neck tunic style sweater, regular sizes thru 3x
