Before I begin, there is something I feel compelled to share. Not to make a big deal out of it, but just to put it out there and get on with it. We'll call it the "whine" to go with... Continue reading

This week - like so many weeks - had it's share of goodness. Sweet still-warm milk in the morning and mist on the hills. Fresh vegetables, fresh flowers, and fresh cool air drifting in through open windows. This week -... Continue reading

Of course you can share. ~ "Rachel Wolf, Clean. www.lusaorganics.typepad.com" seems adequate. :-)
Lovely. Thanks!
Our honeybees are loving my weed-patch. :-)

Can we get real for a minute? It's about my garden. And who knows. Maybe everything else that matters. You see, I went through a major deer-in-headlights phase with my vegetable garden this spring and I think I've come out... Continue reading

Hi Trina, It seems they are redesigning their store so the old link was bad. Here it is: http://0387184.netsolstores.com/search.aspx?find=cinchona

They were so simple! I dont have a tutorial but I bet with a little googling around youd find one. Basically I just used an X-acto knife to cut rectangles a bit larger than the switch plate cover (say 1 bigger on two sides). Then I centered the switch plate on the rectangle, held it down on the paper and cut an X where there were holes. For outlet holes I cut an X and then a few more slices so that there were 6 points or so for each side. Then I smeared the whole thing on the back with mod podge and attached it, tucking in the flaps through the holes and mitering the outside corners. Gosh. This could be a tutorial. Maybe I should write one!
Thanks again, Tree. I figured it out and filed a complaint. All the best, Rachel

I think it's a matter of finding what works for your family. Growing from Waldorf into Unschooling I'm just not super stoked on screens. In this area I'm more Waldorf than Unschooler I suppose. And because I prioritize building and creating and exploring and being outside, screen time has always been a treat. That being said with an almost 12 year old, there is tons of research we do online. They self-limit quite well and have personalities that when I say "enough screen time, let's go to the creek" they don't balk. Sorry I can't be more helpful!
Welcome, Amber! So glad you found your way here.

We got rid of our tv in 2000 and never looked back. When we want to watch something (Netflix, documentary, etc.) we either load a DVD or download right onto a computer. Works great for our family!
Then I bet youll love this, too! http://lusaorganics.typepad.com/clean/2011/09/a-nikki-mcclure-decoupage-suitcases.html
I did make the hooks, from an old Christmas tree a few years ago. Pretty easy and a day hardly passes when I don't notice and appreciate them.

I spet last weekend alone. It was only the second such weekend I've had in almost twelve years, since becoming a mom. Twelve years. Always with someone. I'm crazy about my people which obviously is a good thing considering this... Continue reading

All of the motifs shown are included, and a bonus snail as well. :-) A bag or tote would be a fun project! Thanks for the suggestion.

We buy ours from Paper Scissor Stone, a local-to-us Waldorf supply store. We have also had great results with Weir Crafts!

Wool felt crowns are among my favorite projects to sew. Quick, easy, and met with wild enthusiasm from the person you give it to. A year or so ago I started the process of writing a felt crown sewing pattern... Continue reading
