Feathered Hair Accessory & GIVEAWAY!

Last post before leavin' on a jet plane! Stefan and I are going on a vacation back to British Columbia for the next week, so it will be quiet here.
In the meantime, check out one of my favorite hair items ever! I love feathers and have been adoring this site for awhile. When I saw this wonderful DIY from Promise Tangemen I ran with it!
I made a super long one for a friend, a medium size one for myself, and a shorter one (so just about anyone, minus the Pixie Cuts!) could participate if they wanted. I've always loved this look, and they are super fun & easy to make. An old t-shirt, twine, feathers, a clip of some sort, and super glue and you're done!

Who wants it? The one I'm giving away measures about 12 inches total, and you put the piece underneath your head, clipped into the roots. It has three feathers, one brown & white speckled, a thin soft brown, and a beautiful white with rippled accents at the bottom. Leave a comment and your favorite vacation spot for a chance to win! Winner will be picked when I'm back and into normal sleeping-feeding-children mode, on Wednesday June 30th!


UPDATE: Winner was "B" from The Nabor's Baby! An email has been sent, once I get your address, it'll be in the mail. Thanks for playing a long!

I remember wearing these in the 70s. How my mother let me wear a roach clip as a child I'll never understand. They definitely weren't marketed as hair accessories back then. :)

Amelia Island, Florida is by far our favorite getaway. My aunt, uncle and cousin live there...and he has a boat! Hope you have a great vacation!

How To: DIY Sand/Water Table

How To: Build A Sand/Water Table for Under $30!
Sorry this took me so long to blog, but I had to have a tool list and full instructions before I could do so.
A little history on my love for the sand/water table. I love the idea behind tools for tiny hands, i.e. the Montessori Method, and like to have Lukka 'figure things out for himself', even when he is playing. I try to have the most simple and basic toys available for 3 reasons: a) simple toys generally have less parts, which means less of a hassle for me
b) simple toys inspire way more creativity and imagination than do 'exact replica' toys
c) they are much more aesthetically pleasing to look at, therefore, not making every nook and cranny of our house an eyesore!
I know the last reason is just for me, but it's true. Plastic things don't generally last 1/2 as long as wooden or fabric toys, and they are unattractive. For this reason, I started to look for a wooden sand/water table as opposed to a plastic one …

The Rule of Threes

Costco aftermath
This is what my kitchen looks like for at least an hour after a Costco trip. I haul in everything after an exhausting journey through the busiest store (seemingly) in this country and I just can't do a dang thing more. For an hour. While I get a breather. And eat some obligatory reward chocolate. Eventually I'll get to those piles and everything will be put in it's proper place, but usually it stays like this for that necessary hour. 
                                                                          *** I don't think I'm alone in sensing that our culture has gone hog-wild with unrealistic expectations in just about every department, and I want to tell my friends, and anyone else who will listen, that we can only do so much in a day.  My husband once told me a friend of his pondered the busy-ness of our modern lives and said something to the effect of, "God gives us just enough time in the day to do only the things we need to do." …

Snapshot Story of Malibu, Lake Louise Inlet, British Columbia

top photo: The Blainiacs; self-titled, our group from bible study

There are too many words to share everything about Malibu, so I'm going to share a few pictures, and some words in this post. Malibu is a Young Life camp that is it's own little village in the middle of nowhere, British Columbia, or at least it feels that way--very isolated. It's right at the top of Lake Louise Inlet (right before Lake Louise) but really, there is nothing out there. It is what a leader called "The Thin Place"; the place right in the middle of heaven and earth. It's beautiful, welcoming, joyful, and raw, pristine.

This lodge is where "Club" happens. This is where the large group of the 220+ women who were present for Women's Weekend  would get together twice daily for skits, singing, and hearing speakers before breaking out into small group time. The Women's Weekend follows the Young Life way in how they structure the retreat. Everything we did resembled what t…
