December Clicks!

LanternsI'm doing the clicks a little earlier this month in case you're in need of some final ideas, or encouragement for next year.

*Ten Tips to Simplify your Holiday :: Good ideas here.  Goodness knows, even as a simplified family, there is always something to subtract.  Clutter, physical and mental always creeps in.
*The toys are gone :: On really cutting back and what you learn.
*Playstands and canopy tutorial :: For the adventurous.
*Beeswax Dala Horses :: Very pretty!  Filing away for later.
*Remote Area Medical :: Part of this is filmed about 50 miles away.  I honestly had no idea such a service was offered.  And, honestly, I'm not sure that this is the most accurate depiction of conditions here.  There are plenty of ways to get healthcare afforadbly.  We go to a dental teaching facility with a sliding scale and there is a medical clinic, too.  Our town has a free clinic, as well.  I think NPR covers it better here.
*Felt paper dolls :: These are very sweet and would potentially solve some of the issues that paper dolls have.
*This is adolescence - Seventeen :: Always good to hear from someone down the road.
*101 Toy-free gift ideas :: There are many lists floating around this time of year.  I really like this one.
*When Mommy and Daddy Took the Toys Away :: A long read, but there is lots of good stuff here.
*Advent & Christmas Book Baskets :: A long list of books to look for at your library, or on my beloved Thrift Books.
*How to make a fairy with wool roving :: I want to make a mobile with angels on it.  I've got the perfect stick for it.
*Creating an Advent Spiral for the Waldorf Home :: Lots of practical advice here, along with this post from Sparkle Stories.  I really enjoyed doing this and I think it has been the most contemplative  part of our Advent so far.  As the years pass, Christmas becomes more of an inner experience for me.

I love the felt dolls! And can actually make them, unlike the play stands :)

Oh, how I wish I were a woodworker sometimes, but I only have so much house. ;-)

A Blessed Wilderness

It was just like being in heaven, being in there. In those days there was no road. The park was all a blessed wilderness. I have often thought what a wonderful people we would have been if we had wanted to keep it that way.
