Baby shower & lots of photos to share

Breakfast of oats, soy milk, blueberries, maple syrup & chia with some red raspberry leaf tea.

This was my Thanksgiving meal ordered from Peace Cafe. It was pretty tasty. I really liked their mushroom gravy!

Beeswax candles in baby food jars. These were going to be the party favors at my baby shower, but we decided against it so that it would be a little less work :)

Wool dryer balls I made with leftover wool that my cats got into. These are great! I needle felt them and then added some lavender oil to them. You throw them in the dryer instead of dryer sheets. They work great for softening and help to shorten your dryer time!

Baby Bath Herbs

Mix together:
Organic rose petals
Organic chamomile flowers
Organic ground oats
Lavender flowers (didn't have organic on hand)
Rosemary leaves
Organic calendula/marigold flowers

Store in a glass jar with lid. When ready to use, put some of the mixture in a cheesecloth and tie closed. Add to warm baby bath and enjoy the sweet smelling aroma! I normally add yarrow flowers as well for the antibacterial properties, but I was all out.

Newest hippy pack from my cousin! This hippy pack contained two onesies, dried elderberries, acorns, homemade sweet almond hand cream, amber teething necklace, two used cloth diapers (they were some old ones she was no longer using :) & some Method baby products. Thanks cuz!

Flowers for the centerpieces at my baby shower.

Mermaid coloring sheets with crayons in baby food jars for the kids

Truffles from Ulimana for favors! These are raw & vegan and so tasty!

Homemade necklace from my sis-in-law. So cute!

My beautiful chocolate cake with mint frosting made by my good friend Maciana.

My best friend who threw the shower for me :)

Briana, Maciana & I- all sporting baby bumps. We are due January, February & March :)

My husband and friend Mark 

Lastly, my god daughter, Kalea playing on the playground at the baby shower.

~Fairy Skirts~

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping 
than you can understand.
~William Butler Yeats

My newest thing I am making to sell and give away to family for Christmas, fairy skirts!

One of my nieces modeling for me :)

Isn't she precious? Let me know if any of you are interested in buying! I don't have an etsy or anything though. You can pick the colors and I can make the size to fit to your child exactly. You just send me the measurements!

More pregnancy eats & midwife visit

Breakfast one day of tofu scramble mixed with mushrooms, salsa, nutritional yeast & turmeric, some seaweed and a green smoothie that contained bananas, dates, spinach, chia seeds and I can't remember what all else. 

Breakfast of Hawaiian Pancakes revised to add ground flax with some maple syrup and another green smoothie. This one had bananas, dates, spirulina, mango, chia seeds & almond milk blueberry yogurt. I was out of veggies this day. 

An acai bowl from Beet Box Cafe with acai, banana, strawberry, blueberry, apple juice, banana, papaya, hempseed granola, agave & spinach.  

Chocolate peanut butter smoothie from Robeks

Homemade hummus with garbanzo beans, lemon, tahini, olive oil, garlic & salt, then topped with paprika and more olive oil. I just got some organic olive oil and I love it!

This is my midwife, Dr Lori's, office. This is a small house that is on her 2 acre land on the North Shore. It's so peaceful down here :)

And here is the risky photo...I am just about 6 months pregnant here. This was on our way home from the beach. I am just so excited about being pregnant that I don't even care about how bad I look in this picture. I'M PREGNANT!!!!

What I have been working on...trying to make things I can sell and give away as Christmas presents.

Tinctures I made for my little brother for his birthday. He requested a "dream tincture".

Been spending a lot of time with my babies.

He closed his eyes and turned away when I tried to take this picture.

This is a new friend I found. I was in the car with my mom and saw him on the side of the road in our neighborhood. I jumped out of the car and got him. His name is Morla- like the big turtle in the never ending story. I asked around the neighborhood and no one is claiming him. He has to have belonged to someone at some point though, because we don't have turtle like this in the wild here. 

Here he/she is! Any guesses of what sex you think he/she is? I really want a girl, but I feel like I am having a boy :)

Winner of Himalayan salt lamp giveaway is.....

.... Praise to the Highest! You won!!! Please contact me with your email address so that I can get your lamp sent out!

Happy World Vegan Day & Himalayan Salt Lamp Giveaway!

Guess what everyone?
Ernest, from the Himalayan Salt Shop, is allowing me the awesome opportunity to offer a giveaway of one 6-8 lb Himalayan Salt Crystal Lamp! Just a few facts about Himalayan Salt Lamps:
  • These lamps are natural air purifiers that purify the air of dust, pollen, dander, cigarette smoke & bacteria!
  • Heat from the bulb inside the salt lamp emits negative ions into the air.
  • These negative ions bond with air pollutants (positive ions) and neutralize them!
  • They bond with positive ions produced by computer monitors, TV's and other electrical devices. 
  • Once the ions bond with the air pollutants they become heavier and fall to the ground, which removes them from air circulation!
  • These lamps have also been shown to help with asthma, allergies and other illnesses!
THIS PAGE will answer all your other questions about Himalyan salt lamps.

This contest begins November 1st and ends November 9th.
