Good Pickins’ #8

This week involved a lot of running and the return of Mommy & Me art class at a local studio. My kiddo loves these sessions and we enjoy having some time together working on a keepsake project. We also enjoyed an unusually warm week here, but now the temps have plummeted into official winter weather.

This weekend we are enjoying a relaxing weekend at my in-laws, so I’ll keep it short and sweet!

Pine Needle Survival Tea– Pine needle tea, anyone? I’ve never tried it before but it’s on my list of foraged foods to try. Perhaps it will become a new winter tradition!

31 Days of Handmade Christmas– A new friend I met via the 31 Days Challenge wrote a great series on homemade Christmas gifts. I liked the child’s wallet, bird’s nest necklace, and heat-safe table runner. Are you giving any homemade gifts this year?

Free Thanksgiving Printables, etc. – Free Homeschooling Deals has an entire Thanksgiving-themed collection of printables, unit studies, and activities for a variety of age groups. Helpful for preschool parents, homeschooling families, or parents who just want to give their kids some extracurricular activities (or some fun to keep them busy while you’re cooking the turkey!).

Signs of a Traumatic Birth- I really appreciated this post, and Rachel’s honesty in sharing her feelings. I’ll let the post speak for itself, but I do think that there are many women who feel hurt by their birth but for whatever reasons don’t feel that they can reasonably share. Just because a woman has a healthy baby doesn’t mean that a bad birth experience shouldn’t matter. Read on.

 Have a serene Saturday! 🙂
