As a college student, dressing in my mom’s bell bottoms from the 70’s and concerned with the environment (especially the amazon rainforest deforestation by the cattle industry), I thought I was crunchy. Well, three homebirths, two child-led weanings (one still going strong), fifty or so vaccination refusals, one bed, thousands of hours wearing a sling, and countless numbers of cloth diapers sewn prove to me otherwise. Now that my littles are getting bigger, we are venturing into the world of home schooling and crafting is an essential part of our lives.

I like to call myself an unruly mom for a multitude of reasons, some of which I listed above, but mostly because in our house we strive to live without rules. The kids and the adults live together as humans, well most days. I’m still trying to figure it all out. Join me for the daily silliness that borders on lunacy!

  1. I have a question about the little one size diaper pattern. I know this can’t be sewn to sell but I love this pattern and want to make some for my local womens shelter. Can I donate dipes I make using this pattern or do I still need a license? Sorry to post here, I just didn’t know where else to send this question!


    • Of COURSE you can sew to donate! It is a totally beautiful thing to pay it forward and I would be happy to know that I was a part in some way πŸ™‚

  2. Any chance you’ll have a pattern for the weekender pants and top soon? I’d be happy to test it on my 6 1/2 month old for you! πŸ™‚ I’ve been searching for a pattern like that for a while and I love the look of it!

  3. Hi
    I’m from Australia and i’m trying to purchase one of you patterns off the Amazon website and they keep saying it can’t be sent to my address (Which is really strange as they normally do). Is there any other way to purchase your patterns as i am dying to make one! πŸ™‚

  4. I’m one of those moms from the 70’s/80’s, who also had 4 child-led weanings, used cloth diapers and practiced the family bed way of sleeping. I have to tell you I have 4 “men” for sons who turned out to be amazing men, sons, fathers, husbands and brothers. Glad to know there are moms out there who are willing to put up with the public scrutiny. FYI…I was not brave enough to home school, yet un-school, but luckily my boys all found their career paths without any help or un-help from me or my husband. And surprise…I’m still married to my high school sweetheart!
    Thanks for sharing your life in your blog.

  5. love your blog & your kiddos are darling! what kind of camera do you use? your pictures are awesome.

    • Thanks Lacey! I trade off between my Canon 5dMKII and my iPhone 4. πŸ™‚ I truly find that the best camera is the one on you!
