Exploring Waldorf-y materials…

First. YAY! I won an adorable give away (which if you’ll notice via the right sidebar I share the ones I’ve entered & you should as well. The list is pretty long right now! feel free to let me know about yours, I’d be thrilled to add them–I do try to keep them appropriate to this space’).
Anyway, Ancient Hearth had their first give away & I’m so excited because we now have the sweetest Wild Mother Nature you ever did see. She has a nest of eggs in her hair, rain & sun & fire & lightening & Einstein hair & she’s quite large, bigger than we expected! There are more pics here.

Another exciting thing came in the mail last week, a book about wet-on-wet water color painting & teaching it to children, per the Waldorf manner (if you’re interested, email me & I’ll send you info on how to order it). We’d explored some before, but this book really outlines & is written in a very jolly and entertaining tone. Naomi loved the ‘spreading’ effect & was totally amazed. I like giving her a less structured medium, I think it only encourages her imagination.
So, getting the mail has been done with wonder & zeal this week, anything you’re doing wondrously zealously?
stay tuned. Drew & I have a BIG day tomorrow…I’m certain I’ll have something to share. (& this has nothing to do with fertility or moving).

    hehe…I love your caveat at the end. 🙂 The wet-on-wet turned out wonderfully! We have another painting book that we really like too called Painting With Children. Let me know if you want to borrow it sometime. The Mother Earth is wonderful. I was excited for you when I saw you won it. 🙂

    yes joy! I was wondering if these 2 were about the same. I'd love to see it!

    She does such beautiful work – from Ancient Hearth.
    You are blessed to have won.
    Thank you for sharing your watercolor "work" as well.
    Warm wishes, Tonya
