honey child

It's spring and our allergies have kicked in.  So a few weeks ago, I went to our farmers market and purchased a jar of local raw honey for $16.  The girls and I are allergic to grass, pollen, dust mites.  Digesting a wee bit of local honey each day can slowly build your immunity.  It's working.  Combined with sporadic nasal rinses and daily doses of Costco's Kirkland Signature Aller-tec we are all doing better.  No sinus infections in the last three months!  Read more here.

The girls and I just made some fab little hair barrettes.  All you need are:  feathers, a piece of felt, a hot glue gun, an alligator pinch clip, silk flowers, and beads.  You can buy all of this at Michael's.  Here's the skinny - cut a small square piece of felt and hot glue around the barrette so it covers all sides.  Then hot glue the feathers one at a time onto the felt and finish with a flower.  Or you can stuff a few beads through a feather, then glue gun to the felt on the barrette.  Here's an eco-barrette made with organic cotton.  Kinda pretty and super easy.
