This blog started as letters to my daughter to chronicle our family's hands-on journey to reduce our ecological impact. Through conversations, compost, fabric, and small baby steps, these letters reflect our evolution into something more healthy, local, aware, and community-centered.

We treasure our clay play. I create little love stars or hearts to share with friends and mushroom fairy houses. This spring I made a set of vegetable-shaped garden markers for Holly's garden. Liam makes race tracks with tiny cars and spells out his name. Hannah delightfully designs cups, birds, nests, bowls, pinch pots, and figurines. Sometimes we just mash it into different shapes until a form comes into being. It is bliss to watch clay take form in our hands.
