As in years previous those most magical and much adored Advent elves have brought the boys a geode from the underworld. While i am still in awe that Halloween has come and gone along with November, the boy’s are right in the moment anticipating the weeks to come. No CaptionNo CaptionNo Caption

I am loving the nature table this first week of Advent as we gather treasured crystals, shells and stones from years past.

It was so awesome and magical. Every year i think i will skip the market and just wander around to take more of it in. Sorry no photos! i can’t believe it. I also can’t believe that i haven’t been outside yet today! It’s gorgeous and yet i have been in the land of photo editing and listing for the shop and there is still much more to come. For now, amongst other items, i have put together a little playscape for the upcoming first week of Advent when we will celebrate the creation of minerals, stones, crystals and bones;

Underworld Playscape

for children big and small

My pace has slowed since my recent  sewing frenzy which stocked the market bins for the Christmas season. I’m so looking forward to the Fair this year and hoping to steal some time away from the market place to get around and experience the rest of the magic. See you there;

Life is fast, precious, challenging, amazing…most of these kids i’ve known since they were in preschool and they are all uniquely awesome. There are moments when i catch a glimpse of who they really are growing up to be and at the same time i’m holding fast to that very moment of who they are. Likewise they are experiencing the great nine year change. It’s an honor really. Here’s to “holding the space” for our nine year olds and as parents to not take the shifting too personally.
