The Logger’s Wife™ was created by a logger’s wife and daughter-in-law as an online community for logging families. A place where we can come and proudly say, I love my logger! We also strive to educate the general public about the logging industry.
We try to post things of interest to logging families as we come across them. Resources, recipes, happenings that impact the industry. If you have anything you'd like to contribute please email us!
Yes, lumberjack costumes are very sterotypical… but I can’t help but love them. And they are super easy to DIY… grab a plaid shirt, suspenders and a beard and you’re all set! A few years ago my hubby and I went to a halloween party as “Paul Bunyan” and me as Babe the Blue Ox…
My super crafty Mom over at Nanaslittlenest.com crocheted the hat. A blue dress, blue tights and a cowbell from Tractor Supply I spray-painted completed the costume. It would make a fun siblings costume too!
Another idea (admittedly a bit more difficult) is to go as the equipment instead of the logger! My son was 3 when he decided he just had to be an excavator. My husband was recovering from his fall at the time so had both his arms in casts and it was up to me to create this thing (with his oversight). We just pulled it out of the attic a few weeks ago and were reminiscing… I am still super proud of this thing. lol!

Recently, my son is really into Farming Sim and we all enjoy watching him play! The forestry module is really cool — he can cut down the trees by hand with a chainsaw, and then can load them up and sell the logs or turn them into woodchips. Click clack lumberjack is another family favorite — sort of similar to Jenga. With Christmas right around the corner do you have any fun recommendations your logging family loves?
In late 2009, early 2010 I wrote a poem called “Prayer of a Logger’s Wife”. The poem was written from my heart and as such, I know there are many logger’s wives out there that can relate to every word. (I have it available on merchandise through my t-shirt shop here by the way).
Unfortunately, there have been a lot of people that feel they can take my poem, put it on their own merchandise and profit freely. This is theft. No one other than TheLoggersWife.com has permission to resell any merchandise with my poem and I will do all I can to make sure that any copyright violators are shut down. If you would like to go the honest route and contact me about using the poem please do so. You can reach me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Received an email from another logger’s wife this morning and just had to share the signature they use on their outgoing emails. Love it!

Thanks to improved forest management, we have more trees in America today than we had 100 years ago.”
