I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life; my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties; and my for links to articles about poverty, educational politics, and this famous cat who lives in my neighborhood.

  1. I too have been surprised by how often I make glitter clothespins – at least four times a year and I make a whole package (100?) each time. They are wonderful for attaching tags to gifts, using as magnets, closing bags…

    Instead of glitter, lately I’ve been using glitter nail polish. It doesn’t flake off and I already had it on hand. At Walgreens they were less then a dollar a bottle so I bought every color and use it for crafting. Not green, but again, I had it on hand so I might as well use it.

    Thanks for a great post 🙂
