Felt Food

Katie was playing "restaurant" this past weekend. After about the 9th tray of paper cookies, I decided to make her some felt cookies. I also plan on buying her and Autumn the Rose Petal Cottage for Christmas, so the fake food will get plenty of use.

Here is my first batch of felt cookies. I already have wool felt on order, so I plan on making better quality ones with bamboo filler for my etsy store.

About Me

I have always felt strongly about environmentalism. I remember the FIRST earth day! WAYYYYY before it was an acknowledged semi-holiday. My husband recycled when it was decidedly "uncool" to do so. So, the "green" movement is really not a movement for us.

I did, however, become a little more concerned about our planet and the products we consume when I had children. My oldest is a sassy 10 year old girl, followed by a 6 year old girl, a 4 year old boy and a 1 year old girl. I began cloth diapering when my youngest was born, followed by making my own cleaning products, followed by making earth-friendly toys and baby products. I am now researching my meat options, whether it be going vegetarian or just finding good, organic, humanely killed beef and chicken. I'm not sure where THAT particular road will lead me, but feel free to tag along and see where it goes.
