Over the years, so many of you have got in touch to ask for help in creating a Waldorf-inspired home. You have asked wonderfully thought-provoking questions that have made me think and ponder, deeply, what the most valuable and life-changing aspects of a Waldorf home are.

I’ve promised many of  you that I would put together a workshop to help you easily and seamlessly bring Waldorf into your home and I’m happy to let you know that this workshop is now available : 8 Steps To A Waldorf-Inspired Home.

 

8 Steps to a Waldorf-Inspired Home Workshop. How to bring the beauty of Waldorf philosophies into your home by The Magic Onions

 

.

This workshop doesn’t cover any aspects of a Waldorf education but rather explains and guides you through the beautiful and meaningful philosophies that you can bring into your home to create a calm and creative sanctuary wherein your children will thrive.

In today’s busy and over-scheduled world, so many of us are searching for ways to help our children enjoy an authentic and joyful childhood, one in which they have time for unscheduled play, building deep and meaningful connections with friends, animals and the earth and lots of magical time in nature.

I’m happy to let you know that a few key (and simple) changes can make all of this possible.

8 Steps To A Waldorf-Inspired Home will teach you EXACTLY how YOU can incorporate Waldorf philosophies in to your lifestyle. A step-by-step guide to help you create the lifestyle you are searching for.

Waldorf is more than an education… it is a way of life that EVERYONE can follow, regardless of whether your children go to a Waldorf school, a public school or are homeschooled.

Incorporating these key Waldorf practices into your home will have an astounding effect. Your children will blossom, your home life will become peaceful and joyful and you will start to feel that your family is living it’s BEST life.

I’m honored and excited to share my many years of Waldorf experience with you and help you incorporate the best Waldorf philosophies into your home.

Summertime Fun

Today is the summer solstice, 2016. The longest day of the year. It is HOT here in Southern California today. VERY hot! It’s not quite noon yet and the temps are already 97 °F. My phone says that it will get well past 100°F today. This kind of heat is not my favorite.

Today is also the first day of summer vacation. 3 whole months of slow, unscheduled freedom. Yay!

Here are some photos from our last week of school. Teddy was The Father in his school play, St Francis and the Wolf of Gubio. When I asked him to tell me his words, he recited the whole play, thinking with that far-off look he gets when he concentrates.

He felt giddy after the play… all smiles and giggles. I loved seeing the rush of excitement pulse through him and his eyes sparkling.

Kitty’s 6th Grade Report was on Lewis and Clark. She loved going back in time to when living was surviving. And, the fact that we had visited Oregon just a few months ago, which made it all the more real for her to imagine how life was back then. In true Kitty style, she painted a portrait of Sacagawea that is so beautiful. I’m in awe of this talent she has found and nurtured.

Lots of time is spent in the Sunny House cuddling Skat (that’s his new name, our sweet cat).

I’ve been crafting and will soon have another awesome video for you. PS… do you see the pretty felt flowers we made the other day on the mantle in the first photo?

I was looking for a baby shower gift and stumbled upon such a sweet baby shop. Don’t you just LOVE the pompom mobile hanging from the wire of a lampshade?

I found some gorgeous wallpaper. Flowers taped to the wall. You’d feel like you were in Kensington Gardens all day long (I’ve just finished the last season of Downton Abby and am mourning it’s passing. Why stop it now?)

We are finally putting a real kitchen into the Sunny House. We’ve used hutches and stand-alone cabinets until now, which we have loved, but, as big changes are afoot and the Sunny House will soon have new people to love her, we feel she needs to be all perfect and finished. Can you believe how many boxes it will take to give the Sunny House the kitchen she deserves! I’ll show you a photo when it’s all done.

Hope you are having a lovey first week of summer too, with lots of fun, sun and happy times.

DIY Crafting Video :: Fairy Babies

Oh my gosh… I’ve been having so much fun!

I stepped out of my comfort zone and into a place that I NEVER thought I’d venture into… YouTube.  Eeeek!

 

My 12 year old daughter encouraged me. ‘It’s all in YouTube these day’s Mom’, she said.

 

She critiqued my video and had a lot of suggestions of improvement but gave me the go-ahead to put it up.

 

So, here it is ::  The Magic Onions YouTube channel. Pop on over, have a look around and subscribe.

 

If you’d prefer to watch on here, I’ve added this video tutorial on how to make the sweetest fairy babies (you might have to put the volume up a little as I haven’t quite worked out how to set the right volume on the video yet)…

 

 

I’ve also recorded this same tutorial in photographs if that’s more your style. You can find it here.
