Loving the Light of Fall

In our days, now, the light has a certain look. And I love it.
It's just the warmth that we need as the days grow shorter.
And just like preparing for our Lantern Festival next week we are also preparing our selves....our little souls. Wrapping them in the warmth of the light of Autumn, getting cozy and ready for the long cold winter. The storm prepared us a bit early around here...and all our love goes out to those families who were hit hard. Here in Mid Coast Maine we kinda didn't do so bad. But it is a reminder of the changes fast ahead.
And so it goes, how we stock our pantry- get extra matches and candles, lanterns and lamplights, so we should too stock up our souls. Fill them with all the things we need to prepare for the wintery days.
On my list are a few good books, new slippers, knitting plans or a good pattern for the littles, & a start to Alex's socks, some new wool felt for a more artsy-rather-than-crafty project in the works...and....
what's on your list?

in celebration

Celebration of a child's birthday is one of the most special days of the year.
A few days ago someone asked if I could write a tutorial on the subject...
And I am up for the task, but for now we are prepping for the storm and so I'll leave you with these images, and look forward to posting a little how to on Waldorf Birthday Celebrations...

Blogging Your Way Bootcamp!

If you have noticed I have been away from this space lately then you might wonder why?
Well I have been lucky enough to be a part of Holly's Blogging Bootcamp! It's a great group of bloggers and teachers and so so much information. SO hopefully you will see a bit of a change over here at the ole' blog. Not that I don't love my blog, I just really need the tools to express my vision at this point...SO overhauling is in the near future. But for right now you can enjoy a few samples of the kinds of things we have been working on.
Here is a take on a new banner for the shop or blog...
What do you think?
