Creating a life of magic through the inspiration of nature


f3

I have always been drawn to the magic of nature, even as a small child.  My Oma created the most magical life for her grandchildren. I remember visiting her home in the Arizona mountains several times each year and running to a pine tree with a hidden nook where Oma’s mouse friend, Matty Mouse, had hidden special treats as a welcome to her home.

My sisters and I spent many happy hours exploring all over the forest where my grandparents lived.

There were dolly tea parties to be had,

The magic I felt each time we visited spoke deeply to my soul. I knew that one day I wanted to create a magical world like that. Oma helped spark that dream with her hours of patience helping us grandchildren learn to sew and create whatever our imaginations could conjure up.

  

Several years ago, My older sister told me about Waldorf education and all the sweet little natural toys that children play with. My soul lept with joy at the thought of an entire community of people that loved nature as I do!

What I make and sell in my Etsy shop https://www.etsy.com/shop/happyhoneybee72  goes beyond just a few little toys made from natural materials. I use the inspiration of nature around me to create a world of magic for grown-ups and children. I make items for the home such as aprons, tea towels, and holiday themed decorations.

I learned to sew in 4H, and from my Oma while staying with her for a week or two in the summers as a young girl. I love to bake desserts. I would love to live on lots of land and own lots of animals. I've always been drawn to nature which has lead me towards a more natural and healthy lifestyle which I'm finally trying to bring back into my life, and those precious lives around me.
