It was a perfect day to grab the camera and head over to the Idea Garden.
I was turned on to St. John’s Wort oil back in 1991 by a friend in Portland, Or. This was way before the internet was public. Back then we shared things in person by doing. Ah, the good old days. My friend Molly taught me about wildcrafting and making medicines. We would go out to […]
After last year I decided we needed a major change to the way we had been doing school. It had taken us a few years to figure out what worked for us, but that only worked for awhile. that’s the thing about homeschooling that I love. You are able to make minor adjustments until you […]

I’ve always disliked Mother’s Day. I grew up feeling pressure to tell my mother how great she was. I usually ended up feeling guilty that I didn’t appreciate her more.
I scored none other than Shari Replogle from Play with Paper as my partner this year. Color me happy! I love Shari’s work and have been a fan for a long time. I was thrilled my the soup she sent me: Get a load of all of the goodies! I love the plethora of […]
This weekend I had a yard sale for the first time. What a task! I followed up with a couple of scrapbooking layouts for National Scrapbooking Day…
I’ve been a widcrafter for many years. This year I started with dandelions, burdock, and violets, of course!
