I am getting this book for my birthday next week and wanted to see if anyone here has read it yet and what your thoughts were. I love anything by Amanda Soule, and LOVE her blog (soulemama.com). Creative Family is my favorite of hers so far. Completely changed the way I viewed childrens birthdays....being more about a personal celebration of love and family and less about big parties and stuff!
I will let you all know my thoughts after I read it! Im excited about the crafts because I itching to start making christmas gifts lol
Hip Hippie Mama to Baylin & Evangélina and Wife to my sexy Frenchman Clément living frugally green in the beautiful mountains of West Virginia. Expecting our newest French Fry July 2012!
Ooh - let us know how it is! Of her three books, this new one is the one I'm most drawn to. Looks absolutely lovely!
Peace through homemaking.
I just got it the other day, and haven't had a chance to really dig through it, but it's lovely in an overview! Every month has a chapter, with essays, recipes, crafts, and different projects. Of course, the photos are gorgeous! I haven't gotten in to the essays yet, but the activities are all really quite accessible and most are things I hadn't really thought to do before, though some are things we already do (green smoothies, growing sprouts, etc). Speaking of, I need to get off of here and go read an essay or two before I fall asleep!
Would love to hear what other's favorite parts are...
For greater things are yet to come...
Wondering if any of you have made the lotion recipe from this one? I don't have a kitchen scale...can I just measure the ingredients??
