Here we go!

Okay people, here we go! This is my attempt to bring my version of homemade to the web. It's my goal to list, post, share, and lament all things homemade. I want to travel through food, sewing, gardening, household stuff, medicine, or whatever else I find alluring in the world of homemade. I promise to share with you what I have found to be an awesome investment of time, and what you should just skip altogether.

So, who am I? I'm Dana, a stay at home mom to two highly energetic kids. My daughter is 3, my son is 18 months. They keep me busy, and we spend a lot of time out in the woods. My wonderful husband and I live in the country and have high hopes and dreams of having the capability to be self-sufficient one day, one experiment at at time. We love natural alternatives to things in the mainstream realm of life. We are a homebirthing, cloth diapering, baby wearing, breastfeeding, baby food making, selective vaxing, non-circ'ing-friendly family. We also hope to homeschool one day. So, now that introductions are over, let's get started, shall we?

I want to go ahead and encourage your comments, tips, advice, things you have had success with, particularly helpful links, or whatever else you want me to try. Let's make this an adventure of tell me what you want to see and I'll try it and give feedback.

Now, I'm going to start my mental list of things I plan on posting. I'll return and report once I get my mental notes a little more organized.

Welcome to the blogging world Dana!! :) Remember that comments (given and recieved)make the world go round in the blogging world. And the more you blog the more you stay in the habit. The best advice I can give is to blog on a regular schedule so you keep people coming back! :) Not every day but regular at least. I love all your tips and advice so I am sure you will share much more now that you have an open forum!

I would love to hear more about your journey through learning natural medicine. Recipes and methods for your tinctures, advice and tips about what works well for this or that ailment. Good resources for beginners, ect! Can't wait to see more from you - you've always taught me things so I think you'll be a very successful blogger!
