last summer (2015) i started experimenting with natural dyes & ecodying.
i kept it up with some experiments with rust dying and things with spices over the winter, and a few things with pine trees.
and then continued on this year as well...
i have been rummaging around my yard and walking through the neighbourhood looking at plants & trees & discovering what things are. i have been going on wonderful nature walks to gather leaves for little experiments that yield fantastic results! it has been so much fun! i only wish my grandma was still around so i could show her everything i have made & that i could have had the chance to learn everything that she knew about all this stuff.

so.. well.. i havent really had much time to do anything online, cause well.. i am lazy. but i have made a few posts on my blog about some things.. so.. here are links to those..
