Craftiness: Jewelz

IMG_20141002_115502

This month, we acquired a new hobby…jewelry making! We learned how to make hemp (natural) jewelry and we bought some beads to do beaded jewelry as well. We’ve been having a blast! MHG is especially thrilled, because she loves making bracelets and such. For the longest time, she was making the rubber band jewelry, but the bands were degrading after only a couple weeks of wear. It left her feeling defeated. Now, she has learned to make bracelets that won’t break down…and she and I couldn’t be happier!

Here are some of MY creations:

She also made me a very special necklace that says “Cool”…cuz she said I’m a “Cool Mom”.

Awwwww, love that girl of mine. Hugs all around!

When September Ends

IMG_5751

The Super Moon.

IMG_5777   IMG_5770   IMG_5786

My view of the Super Moon this month was less than stellar in clarity, but it was still breathtaking nonetheless!

We arrived back in New Mexico, from our Labor Day Weekend vacation in Colorado Springs, CO, on the 1st day of the month. You can see that return trip HERE…or follow the links to the “NEWER” vacation posts at the end of it.

The [Home] Learning.

The girls started their 1st day of school on September 2nd (although technically the 1st). You can read about that HERE.

1st day collage

Homeschooling is one of the greatest joys in my life.

MHG read those books, and several others, in just 1-2 days. We’re so proud of her!

(She actually could comprehend and remembered what she read as well.)

IMAG3233   IMAG3237   IMAG3270

Cinderella absolutely LOVES this “Girl’s Body” puzzle by Hape. It was an awesome Amazon find.

Cinderella’s drawing of her Grandfather “Papoo”. This makes my heart happy.

And then Daddy’s “Sukkah” building lesson, somehow turned into a “build whatever structure you want” lesson, lol.

The Sukkah was to be built for our Hebrew studies, but then MHG turned it into a house once finished and Cindy built a teepee with Daddy.

I knit myself a dreadlock Tam (oversized beanie) for Winter for my locs.

Our friend/neighbor brought her Conure over for us to see!

This was from the day that I made their Winter bedding. You can read about that HERE.

The Vegan Food.

Ok, so if this is the first blog post of mine that you’ve ever read, you should know that I’m mostly Raw Vegan. My days and meals are chock full of fruits and veggies…and especially BANANAS.

I make a lot of smoothies and I eat a lot of salads.

Occasionally, I go crazy and actually make something that isn’t either of those.

The Boho.

I celebrated my 1 year Anniversary as a non-smoker/non-vaper/non-nicotine user on 9-10-14. You can see that day HERE.

That is also the day I dyed my bangs green.

Onyx (my black cat) ripped an enormous hole in my old fitted sheet, so I treated myself to some new Organic red sateen sheets!

I was devastated initially (because it had been my favorite sheet), but now I feel like I should thank him? Lol. These rock!

IMG_20140904_220641

The Fun.

My Husband is really good at Hacky Sack…me, not so much, but I try.

And when I don’t play along with him, I enjoy watching his legs bend in ridiculous directions.
