I have just bought some kite paper and I was wondering if anyone would be kind enough to post links to blog tutorials on how to make some different designs?
Just wanted to send you hugs, it sounds like things have been difficult lately. With the food, try and take it one step at a time...choose a day that would work for you to cook from scratch and get in the habit of doing it that day every single week. Maybe that will help you get back in the swing of things slowly and you can build from there. If you don't have time to make bread daily have you thought about a bread maker? We use it daily and while i know baking bread by...
I grew up in a Quaker family, so it is interesting hearing it mentioned here.
I have just bought the Osthiemer mini nativity which we have wanted for two to three years now. It has arrived and is stunning, but it was about £250 ($400 approx) I am justifying it to myself by knowing that it will be an heirloom, but as i have two girls, I know they will end up fighting about it when the time comes I didn't really look around at any others so I'm not sure what other companies do them. Let us know what you find.

have you thought about a dolls house frame? http://www.myriadonline.co.uk/produc...1926&name=Doll House Frame I know you can buy this in the USA too online. I was recommended it from a Waldorf mama of two boys from this forum. My girls love it, it hardly takes up any space, and they love setting up a new 'space' each time. It get plays with alot!

I do! And K is fine, I think the values we have at home (waldorf inspired) are so strong for her that they help to balance out any negatives a public school might have. Also, don't forget, there are positives to public (state in the UK) schools too! But, I worried myself about this for two years and have eventually accepted it and am happy how it is panning out.
