Let’s Craft!

I went to the Pittsburgh Arts Festival last week and have been yearning to make and create ever since. Seeing people in their artistic element truly inspires me. And this umbrella, walkway installation…

umbrellaCan we just stare at this all day? It’s all of my Mary Poppin’s fantasies come to life!

I thought I would see more people of the Homestead variety (more handmade products). Maybe, I missed it. In my opinion, art can come in many forms than jewelry or wall creations. Art should be experienced by all five senses.

Since Wednesday we have started kefir culture, whipped up some homemade almond milk, tried our hand at dish soap (failed slightly), made some homemade toothpaste and mouthwash, and some boo boo balm!

All of the things listed are for my personal enjoyment. I would never fathom selling any of the items. I get some odd stares when I mention about my homesteading hobby. I know I can easily purchase these things, but I am learning new skills and making things my own. And you can’t put a price on that.
