Brief Bio, News in Your Life, etc:
I'm a new(ish) mama who is still trying to figure out where all the hours of a day hide.  

When I had more free time, I spent a lot of time in my kitchen, experimenting with doing things myself.  Now, eating is something we cram in between baby naps.

I believe in attachment parenting.  We are a waldorf-inspired family who may end up homeschooling our son.  

I knit, I spin, I dye fiber.  I also like kitchen experiments and I occasionally dabble in other things, too.  

I'm also studying to become a certified herbalist through two separate courses--one based in the traditions of vitalism and the other, a more spiritual/folklore based herbalism.

I'd love to make/be-friend like-minded mamas or crafters.  Though I'd like to say that I'm a great communicator, I go through spells and often don't quickly respond to messages.  With that in the open, I think my better qualities are that I like to listen and genuinely try to help people.  I have a generous heart.  I'm optimistic and content.

My Favorite Crafts To Do: knitting, soap making, spinning, fiber dyeing, natural bath products
Crafts I Want To Learn: cold process soap making,
