More Candlemas Fun

I just wanted to share a couple other Candlemas related goodies. I participated in a wonderful Waldorf swap for the holiday, for which I made wooden St. Brigid’s figures (it was a Candlemas/St. Brigid/Imbolc swap). One side is St. Brigid, the other a candle. They are made from poplar and were wood-burned and water-colour painted. … Continue reading

Martinmas

Martinmas

Martinmas is observed on November 11 and celebrates St. Martin of Tours. The story of St. Martin (in a very abbreviated way) is that Martin was a Roman soldier, not known for his kindness. He had been a brutal fighter, persecuting Christians and whomever else the army told him to. It started to wear on … Continue reading

Halloween

The Kiddo did a fun handmade Halloween goodies swap recently that was with the kids of members of a Waldorf swap group I belong to. He made these super cute wood bat magnets and Halloween shaped beeswax decorations for his contribution. The kiddos he got goodies from did an awesome job, too! He received a … Continue reading

Pentecost

Pentecost

I know, I know, this blog post is beyond tardy for Pentecost. Perhaps you subscribe to the old adage, better late than never? (Or so I hope!) On the actual day of Pentecost, the little guy and I made hand-rolled beeswax candles with a flame motif to them. The colours are an amazing orange and … Continue reading

The lessons she has put … Continue reading

Recent creations pt 2: Peg Dolls

Some other recent creations. I received a wood burning tool from my mom, and I love it! I made these peg doll sets for two different swaps. This little heart themed peg doll was made for a Valentine’s Day swap. I woodburned the lazily drifting heart onto the body, added a face and hair, plus … Continue reading

Recent creations: Woodland Animal Swap

I know I haven’t posted very much recently. Between the holidays and some other things going on, I haven’t had much time to blog or make much. But I have done a few swaps for the Waldorf groups I belong to. This little brown bear, tree, and forest floor mat set (with bear poem) were … Continue reading

Winter Nature Table

Winter Nature Table

I recently did a really fun swap with a Waldorf group I belong to on Facebook. The theme was “Winter Nature Table,” which was perfect because I am just getting into doing a nature table (or windowsill, in our case, since space is at a premium in our tiny house). Each participant made six things– … Continue reading
