Link Love 4.6.12


I love buying original art.  My house has several pieces, some handed down, some from our travels and some from unknown artists at local fairs.  I was looking around Etsy the other day and came across  Hallie Lu Ya watercolors and fell in love with one.  The one I bought was a print, but it’s still special, it reminded me of my son and I just needed to have it.

Are you a Home Ec superstar?  I am feeling pretty good, I can’t change my oil but I can do a good amount of the stuff on this list!

The last couple of weeks I have noticed that a couple of my front teeth on the bottom are sore and sensitive.  I have never had any teeth problems, never even a singe cavity, although I have had major orthodontic work done from overcrowding and a severe cross bite.  So of course, I am diving into some natural oral care information because I know you can heal your cavities and gum disease naturally, I just don’t know any of the details.

First up, I am going to start brushing my teeth with hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and salt.  Mostly just for an experiment to see if it helps the sensitivity.  I would also love if it whitens my teeth some.   Next up, I am going to read the book, Cure and Heal Tooth Decay.

Need to save this for when Penelope is a teenager.   I feel like I need to start preparing and educating myself on teenage parenting NOW.  I used to tell mothers that I worked with at my yoga studio, that 9 months is not enough time to prepare.  Young women need to start reading books about birth and babyhood parenting before they are even married.  So I am applying that same theory to teenage- hood, so I gotta get started ASAP.

Have you signed up for my email newsletter yet?  The peeps on that list will be the first to be able to buy my ecookbook when it comes out.  AND they will have access to it at a price 50% off retail value for the first three days!!

And have you entered the Berkey Water Filter Giveaway going on right now?  You could be the proud owner of a brand new water filter, worth $258!

Ok, one last request, and I am done.  Will you please vote for my friend Kim, owner of the Polka Dot Press.  She is a good friend and designed my ecookbook cover for me.  She is in the top 20 of a national con
and the prize is $25k!  That money would be a boon to keep her in business for the long haul and would expand her a bit too (which means hiring new people and growing our local economy).  So please, vote for her.  You can vote 10 times a day till Sunday.  THANK YOU!!!

  1. I love the watercolor print you chose. Very touching. I don’t know if your area has something like this:

    A good friend of mine experienced a still birth 9 years ago and this organization and its annual walk has played a big part in her journey. I’ve walked with her over the years and it is a wonderful event that remembers and celebrates the tiny lives lost. I’m sharing it with you because before the walk a balloon is let go for every baby that is being remembered. There is always an inspirational song playing and with the balloons soaring in the sky it is a very moving moment.

    I applaud you for your courage to share your story with all of us. It’s not easy stuff, this motherhood gig and I certainly don’t know you but from what I can tell… you are doing a great job. (I don’t know if any of this is coming out the way I hope it to or if I’m just seeming creepy and weird but I just wanted to share this with you)

    • Our area does have something similar, but I have always felt out of place, like a miscarriage is not as important as still birth. But that is interesting that they let a balloon go, I wonder if that is why I felt called to the piece. Thanks for your comment, not creepy or weird at all! It’s nice to know people are reading what I wrote!
