‘Tis the season to start making those homemade holiday gifts! Last year my series of posts on making your own holiday gifts went over really well,
STRESS! Seriously, I am entering my first Christmas Season in retail, my son’s birthday is tomorrow, Thanksgiving is nearing, and my first craft fair, ever, is only in a matter of weeks. To say that I am not stressed out would be an understatement. For the most part I have been so busy, that I […]
This post has been a LONG time coming. I have been trying to find a recipe for dish soap that ACTUALLY worked, for at least a year now. I have tried just about every single diy all-natural “crunchy” soap recipe that I could find!
I had the privilege of being invited to one of my long-time friend’s wedding and reception this last weekend. Though we weren’t able to go to Colorado to make the actual wedding, we were able to go to their reception dinner held here in Texas. When our invitation arrived in the mail, my first thought […]

I have created The Hippy Homemaker Bug-B-Gone candles […]
It’s spring time in the northern hemisphere and every one around me is getting pregnant and having babies! It’s that time of year for twitterpating and baby showers! The most recent baby shower that I attended was for a family friend and her impending little princess, Kirbi! I decided it was time that I put […]
With Spring time officially here and Easter in a week, I decided to put together an Easter basket for Syfy that would help to also build up our Waldorf style homeschool classroom.
