Guess Who Is Sitting Up?

She's a stinker.  I walk away for one minute and come back to....

Madeline sitting up.  Typical third child.  Mom's too busy to watch her learn to sit up.

I Dream of Wildcrafting: A Forager's Journal

I designed a journal for gatherers and foragers... for NeoPrimitives!  

I Dream of Wildcrafting: a forager's journal is 35 pages of doodles and templates for gathering and foraging along with tips, ideas and format suggestions for keeping all of your adventures organized year to year.  The journal is printed on durable linen paper in a natural color.

You can buy one on etsy by clicking HERE!

They are available in print or as a pdf download (just print and go!).  

Our goal was to leave lots and lots of white space for inspiration, doodling, pressing plants, spore printing, ideas, art, etc.

We are going to be running a small etsy shop for primitive crafts and idea sharing.  It is called Sister Chicory.  So far, only the journal is up, but we are ready to unveil some more simple, natural and beautiful items.

Tales From My Appendix

Most of you know already that I got appendicitis and had to have my appendix out on Monday/Tuesday.  So no show this weekend in Illinois.  We're sad about that.  I've learned a few things about myself during this time.

1.  I have a high pain tolerance and an inability to admit that I'm in pain when it's bad.  When I'm extremely nauseous and shaking uncontrollably, that's a sign that I'm in pain.  Somehow, the constant cramp feeling didn't merit my attention as much as my other symptoms of being in pain.
2.  Appendicitis is worse than childbirth (until the painkillers kick in).
3.  I have a low resistance to narcotics. Very low.  I'm a lightweight.

In other news, I'm recovering at grandma's house in North Carolina until next weekend.  So far, the healing is going well.  I'm off narcotics but taking Tylenol.  The incisions are healing well.

Have you ever seen an appendectomy on youtube?  Crazy!

I hope to post some updates from the last few weeks while I have internet here.  I'll start with an update on our Foraging Journal....  keep checking the blog.
