Why We Love our Rainbow Play System

homefield showroom

  When we moved to our new home, we moved more into the country than into another subdivision. Our kids have dozens of acres to eventually roam, but it’s not close to any playgrounds. At our old home, we lived in a subdivision near parks within walking distance, and that was a lot of fun …

Scrap Pile Presents for a Zero Waste Birthday

Greta rag dolls

  Both of my girls have a birthday at harvest season, and I had such a great time making presents for them this year. To challenge myself even further, I decided to focus on using materials I already had to make really fun, useful gifts. One of the basic “rules” of Zero Waste is to …

Zero Waste 2015

zero waste shopping materials

  Over the past several months, I have expressed my desire toward different homesteading ventures. Gardening, raising meat chickens, preserving and building have been on my radar for quite some time now. It’s just been over the last year or so that I’ve begun to execute those goals.

Getting Into Routine with Stinkerpants Magnets

stinkerpants-logo

Anyone with a toddler (or older children!) can tell you that transitions are difficult. Routine can be hard to establish, and every day can be a challenge. Even the little things. Especially the little things! You may be familiar with Weddingbee, the wedding planning blog I participated in four – whoa four! – years ago …

Have you heard the news? Ana White, homemaker extraordinaire, has a new show on HGTV! It premiered last week with two pilot episodes. I finally got a chance to head over to my mom’s house to watch the recorded shows (we cut the cable cord 18 months ago, so I’ve been sadly lacking in HGTV). …

  My oldest daughter is nearing three years old, and has recently discovered the joys of Mommy’s “make ups”. Yet even though I strive to buy natural, organic products, when I was looking at the ingredients there were still so many things I couldn’t recognize. Did I really want this stuff going into my daughter’s …

Wow, it’s been a while, hasn’t it? I didn’t plan to take such a long, unannounced blogging break. I’ve been having a bit of burnout for a while now, trying to figure out exactly what blogging meant for me. Did it mean income? Sharing? Validation? I felt myself trying to fit into the DIY Blogger …

Salvage Yard Mirrors

  Sometimes it takes failure to see things in a new light. In this case, it was a mirror. This mirror.     I’ve had it for about five years now, back when I was a bachelorette living in a Dallas apartment. It was cute, but not really my style anymore. Plus, I didn’t have …
