when you wish upon a star...

"When you wish upon a star...(or a dandelion)" 

What I've been working on lately...  Have you ever tried using a wood burning tool?  I found one a few years ago at a yard sale for probably a quarter...and besides carving initials into our old home, I haven't really used it.  Well...cue clearance wood panels from IKEA ($3) and the wood burning tool got another go at a little more artisitc project...

 It's a little crude...the artist needs more practice :)  
 ...but for $3.25 artwork, I am pretty happy!
...promise I'll show more when  it is complete :)

 If you liked this post, then you might enjoy the BOOK!

Make your own coconut oil.
Gather your own sea salt.

Give gifts naturally grown and crafted from your backyard garden.

Each chapter focuses on a plant or groups of plants and how to grow them in your home garden.  Then, gather up those natural ingredients and get crafting! From lavender wreaths and hypertufa planters to lambsear angels and pickled tomatoes, there are projects for beginners on up!
