life lately

Lately our household has not tried any new green approaches to living. I did make a batch of laundry detergent from Wendy Nissen's site which will last just over a month and costs about $10 and smells delicious.  

(loving Master Happy's new hoody. He said it looks like a clown but was happy to wear it.) 

BUT we have been making lots of 5 minute walks to  Pukerua Bay’s beach (it's Free after all). A great play ground for the dog and kids and some quiet time for ‘The Parents’. I’ve always loved beaches and this beach has so much to offer. The bear hunt walk down the gully to get there, a stream, rockpools, both sand and stony parts, driftwood, cat’s eyes (shells), paua, a waterfall, baches, picnic tables for fish and chips (if Pukerua Bay had a fish and chip shop) and safe for swimming. 

The Man about the House has taken the kids both days in the past 3 weekends while I've been sewing... (check out the a green life shop here

a green life is in business

'a green life' is now a business and guess what i'm the boss!
this has been a little dream of mine for some time. 
now that my children don't need me every minute of the day i'm making it come true. the money will be helpful too.

the initial business plan is i make stuff from my stash of craft supplies and you buy it. i'm going to be mostly re-purposing things.  i'll be honest i'll be using lots of inspiration from pinterest and other things i see. i like simple designs which are fun and colourful. think lots of one-off designs, green living, doilies, animals, wool, vintage and retro... 

please join me as i strive to live a green and full life while still being a stay at home mama. you can do this by buying a green life good and helping to spread the word.

preloved shop: (coming soon)

PS. There's a competition happening over on the facebook page for 'a green life' gift voucher
