Buy something from me! I'll plant a fucking tree!!

Really? I've been to so many websites this week toting the phrase "For every blah-blah, we'll plant a tree!" And I couldn't help but wonder if these eco-biz-folks are really digging up some dirt planting trees??

So I actually clicked a link today to find out more and it looks like they are getting some international tree planting website to vouch for them. I dunno. Seems like everyone is jumping on the eco-bandwagon and pulling tons of green shit from their asses just to get more sales.

If you want to plant a goddamn tree, then plant a fuckin tree because you want to - not because someone purchases one your handmade *eco-friendly* bags.

And if you're going to promote that people in India are planting your commercialism funded save the fuckin earth trees..... then I hope you've racked up a few carbon points, flown there and seen for YOURSELF that those green fuckers are being planted.

Thanks for your business.

Have a nice day.

Homeschoolin' Mama!

The learning has officially begun for the year - we started early because we are big info sucking dorks and actually like to "do school" as my little guy puts it.

It's fun - it's eclectic - sorta Waldorf - definitely child centered and led.

We love to learn.

Am I for real??


3 days before the birth of my baby...was I really posting stupid "my porn name is..." posts??

Well I will certainly blame that on crazy sleepless "when is this baby coming out" nights and extreme boredom! and even though I very much want to delete it - I'm going to leave it there to be reminded that careless posting can lead to embarrassing blog moments.

Ha. Let that be a lesson to me.

So yes. The baby DID FINALLY COME OUT!! Not the way I thought either - I ended up having a C-section!! Crazy nuts eh?

But she's beautiful.

My Porn Star name is....

Your Porn Star Name Is...

Candy Coxx
Looks like I've been hitting the tanning bed with my new profession.
Funny the only thing tan on me right now is my fat pregnant feet - with a major sandal tan line too! When I take off my sandals - my feet just look dirty.

How to Make a Belly Cast!

First, find a positive helper who's excited to take on the challenge!

Then, make him read the directions while you scarf down something chocolately.

After you cut the pieces of casting material, dip them in hopefully warm water - mine was NOT - just look at my miserable face!

And plaster those babies right onto the big belly.

Try to have fun :)

Freakin' Fleece is driving me nuts!!
So I've been craftin' a bit with the ol' polyester and my machine is not digging it at all! Major issues with skipping stitches and I think I've tried almost everything: using a Stretch needle, changing needles, cleaning the needle, using different tensions, making sure to use a polyester thread, using a long stitch length, using a zig zag stitch, trying different fleece fabrics....
And I have noticed less trouble with the bulkier fleece but the skipping stitches return with thinner fabrics..... what the hell.
So it's such universal bullshit for me too because I made some fleece diaper covers that actually sold on ebay (for more than 99 cents like all the other shit) and it just SO FIGURES that a product that I may actually be able produce that people want, I can't even make - even though I want to.....
What luck I am having.
So I'm starting to put it into my tomorrow-land that I'd like a serger. I've heard that's the machine to properly deal with fleece! Okay so mucho expensive serger - I'm going to manifest you!!

I got the tie hook up!!

Thanks to my local Freecycle for this fat donation of men's ties.

I have some ideas to use the neckties for the straps of tote bags - so we'll see!

If ever created, of course they'll be sold at All Natural Me!

Snippy - Snip -

New bangs for Sadie!

I thought I'd mix up the straight-across snip with a little angle and center point.

I like-y.

No More Soap Slime!!

I love using an all natural bar of soap in the bathroom but I hate how one side of it gets slimy!

Here's the solution:

Glass pebbles in the soap dish - for drainage!

No more gross soap.
We've been cartooned!

La familia is doing great. I'm getting super huge - the cartoon really is not exaggerating!

Ayden's been filling up his 4 year old schedule with dance class, swimming lessons, play dates and homeschool field trips.

Today we toured the Postal Headquarters in DuBois - which I should really put on his blog along with hundreds of other pictures.

Honestly, there really is way too much shit on my 2-do list!!

Much love!

Nursing pads!

Kudos to me ~I made a bunch of nursing pads for the breastfeeding days soon to come!

3 layers of flannel from an old sheet and fleece on the outside for (hopefully) leak proof protection. Just a quickie zig-zag stitch around the edges.

4 year olds are so much fun!

One of Ayden's favorite things to do is go wild with the digital camera.
He loves taking pictures of all his toys, crafts and even movies he digs.

Look! He even digs his mama!!

and his square German crayons that cost a fortune

(Thanks for sponsoring that Mama B!)

More of Ayden's fantastic 4 year old photography is featured on his blog:
