Crafts and Non-Food Products
While we begin to enjoy the beauty of farm life more and more, I like to share my creative streak through photos. We are creating more farm art to put into calendars in the future, because I have a weird love for calendars, and we will have those available to customers in the fall.
If we are going to make goatmilk soap, then it better smell good. I also happen to have an overabundance of mint, so we are making some of our own scents while we learn more about milking.
It is difficult to go from living in a city where you only need to decorate your front door to the country where no one can even see your front door. Instead of purchasing expensive lawn art, I am pursuing different ways to bring some spirit to our entries.
We heard that some people enjoy crafting with large egg shells and so we began to save our eggshells (with the insides blown out). It is tough to decide whether we should offer them through a craft shop or offer classes with them, because they are surprisingly fun to paint and photograph!
In a quest to reduce my own footprint while I learn how to do this food and farm thing right, I keep realizing how wasteful some things are. Crocheting these did not take long, and now I will stop YEARS of waste. Keep a look out for salon and toiletry handmade crafts in the fall.
A large handmade gift for my mom may turn into a craft available to purchase. While we wait for our willow to grow through the spring, I am learning more about basket weaving.
