Going Forward

I swear, I have started like 5 blogs. I don't know, maybe that's common. You start to speak about a topic and then you find something else you would rather speak about and so you get a whole new screen name. Is that normal? Maybe so.

Anyway, I have been playing around with trying to find a blog title that would embrace my fickleness. Somewhere I can write about my kids, my battle with diet and exercise, my interest in growing a business from home, my perfect husband and how he leaves his dirty socks by the bed EVERY night, our struggles and successes with our finances, my thoughts on where our family is spiritually.

I am thinking I found it. Saucha Girl seems to me to really encompass what I strive for daily. Purity. To just be real. To be clean. To feel content.

I have a couple of ideas of what path I would like my life to travel down. I really would like to make our household run "greener". I want the kids to know the importance of saving the environment we live in. I also want to carry that through to our food; attempting to get our family to eat more whole foods and really find out which foods are beneficial to buy organically. I want to be healthier myself, for myself and my family. I want us to be content spiritually.

So from now forward I will be giving more thought to these topics and others and really trying to blog about them here.

Ebay listings

Two more listings for today. I made the mistake yesterday of listing them for one day only. Someone in Australia sure got a bargain! My mistake.

Ipod Cozy

A fun project for the weekend. It took me three tries to get it just the way I wanted it. I am happy with how it turned out. I have the prototypes to two of my favorite people and the last one is up in the shop.

Check it out!

Soup's on

We were busy yesterday. With what, I can't really say. The day just seemed to fly by.

We didn't get started until late because the fog would not roll out. The kids were content to hang out and play and build and watch PBS while I posted on Etsy and listed a new piece of jewelry.

Check out my shop at http://www.saucha.etsy.com/

We also made Crab Soup from a loved recipe of Matt's Aunt.

Last week the local grocery store had a sale on crabs. $12 a dozen! We had to get some! They were small but we sat and picked them and ended up with about a pound and a half of meat. That's pretty good considering the pound containers sell for like $40. We paid $24 for a pound and a half. Good deal.

In the soup we used a lot of Old Bay

Don't you love the stuff?~!

I am just a crazy, 30 something, stay at mom to three little ones. I spend my days playing on the playground, doing science projects, wiping bums and all the other fun things that come with having a 5, 3, and 2 year old. I love it!

When they have gone to bed, I have a desire to make things. That feeling started long ago when I was young and wanted a Cabbage Patch Kid so bad. I decided I needed to make one from my parent's unmatched socks.

Saucha means purity and so much more. Purity, clean, order, health, balance

It is our attempt as humans to feel ourselves as clean and clear.

So in naming myself and my blog Saucha Girl, it is my attempt to create order in my life. To make my life feel as though it is clean and balanced.

I love to make things and have recently found a real love of making jewelry and pairing it with the fabrics that I love.

In order to financially support my love, I have created my Etsy shop. www.saucha.etsy.com

Etsy is a wonderful site where many wonderful artists have gathered from around the world to offer their art for sale to you.
