So Much Gooodness - Shivaya Naturals

So Much Gooodness

March 31, 2010

Happy Wednesday Everyone. I am sorry to be getting to this post so late this morning, but my oldest son fell out of a tree while climbing just before dinner last night, and I overreacted like I assume that most mamas would, and rushed him to the ER. He is, of course, just fine, and was mighty annoyed at me for draggin him away from his beloved tree.

We have some really special things going on both over at Rhythm of The Home, both with the magazine and the blog. First, a huge thank you to Julia for all that she is doing in bringing wonderful projects, interviews and posts to the blog. Julia has literally taken the reins, and Bernadedtte and I are loving getting up every morning to read what Julia has created.

Over on the blog today is a wonderful project from Anglea Mobley, who gives us a tutorial for making Wet Felted Chicks. This is a perfect project for Spring, and goes perfectly with the Root Children and Sprouted Basket projects from the Spring edition of the magazine.

Speaking of the magazine, our April Surprise is up! We thought we would post this project today, just to give a little extra time to everyone for dying up their Easter eggs.

Nicola gives us a gorgeous tutorial for dying our Easter eggs naturally, using such ingredients as blueberries, strawberries and onion skins. The colors and textures that she achieves are incredible, and the boys and I are heading out to get what we need this afternoon, to enjoy an end of week project.

To add to the goodness, Nicola also surprises us with a little treat at the end, and a perfect way to use up all the leftover fruit once the dying is done.

And just to add to all the above, Lisa DeNardo from Earthmama stopped into the blog yesterday to give us our first guest blog post, and I can not say enough about the subject. Lisa’s discussion on Innate Knowledge was something that I had been thinking about a lot lately, and I really appreciate her sharing her insights with us.

We hope that you enjoy all of the additions and changes that we have been making at Rhythm of The Home, and we wish you a very Happy Spring.

I love the blog, and the magazine of course. The three of you are such a wonderful three-some. The three Rhythm of the Home Amigos!

I am so glad he is okay. That must have been incredibly scary. 🙁

Such fun projects! If I get around to coloring eggs this year (which is getting dicey since Easter is….yikes four days away!) I think I may have to try some of these natural ideas.

I am so glad he is ok! I would have done the same thing, and I know Kaulini would have been annoyed with me, too. She tells me she is a 'tree girl' and lives in the trees. <3


Earth Mama April 1, 2010 at 4:43 am

Oh those dangerous tree climbers! We have those here too. I'm glad your little man survived. Poor mama. Thanks so much for including me here. I was really honored to be highlighted on the Rhythm of the Home blog! And I agree…the three of you make an amazing super mama team!! Keep up the amazing work you do!

The world of ROTH is expanding and is awesome! I'm loving the blog posts and projects that are being shared. What a scary night last night! I'm glad your sweet one is ok!

yes, I'd be packing up for the ER, too, if my girls fell out of a tree. Glad he is ok. Lots of good reading to do today! thanks 🙂
