New Blog Address

Dear Reader,

On Friday March 11th, I will be changing my blog URL from to

I’ve been feeling that my “old” name isn’t fitting anymore. I don’t like how it fits me. Yes, I tend to strive to live frugally and not spend too much… but I’m hardly the perfect example of that. In fact, I think I spent wayyyy too much on St. Patty’s Day craft stuff for A 😉  Not very frugal 🙂  (but fun!)
Yes, I tend to have hippie views on some things. But I’m hardly a hardcore frugal hippie activist – I’m very much like the girl next door.

Although, I am always busy 😉

So I suppose I just wanted something that described better what I blog about. You won’t really find articles on frugal living on here, except perhaps a tip or idea here and there (even then). You won’t find any activist post on hippie green living, though some of those ideas might show up through my other writings.
But you WILL find fun craft ideas I create for my girls, homeschooling and totschooling activities I prepare and come up with, insights of books I’ve been reading and other {rare} spare time hobbies… In brief, you will read about the daily life of being home with my girls.

Hence the title. 🙂

Please make sure to update your Reader subscriptions! 😀



Slightly Frugal. Yes, I consider myself (slightly) frugal. Oftentimes, anyway. I believe in less in more, in not accumulating unnecessary clutter, in living a less materialistic life. Now that’s a mission in our materialistic culture! It’s a work in progress. I embrace simplistic values, and everyday is a new day to find new ways to be simple and frugal.

Sometimes Hippie. No, that doesn’t imply getting high while living in a tent with flowers stuck in my hair. Although I do enjoy camping. And flowers. Hippie is slightly natural, back to basics, simple. Using less, re-purposing more, saving money, time, energy, and resources. Embracing old age ideals from times gone by, sometimes going against the mainstream. Attachment parenting philosophies, breastfeeding advocacy, organic living; growing your own food, using natural cleaners, going no ‘poo. Hippie things like that. It’s slightly frugal, too.

Always Busy! It’s busy, being a young mom of young children. Sure, I’m only mother of 1… although, I do have another one on the way. Eep! Now THAT will be busy! 😉 But all kidding aside, we are all busy. That’s not news to anyone. But it doesn’t mean you can’t have fun along the way! With a bit of good old organization, busy doesn’t have to be stressful – most of the time.

Welcome to my space on the blogosphere! This is an informal blog, about the everyday life of ordinary people who are striving to live by their ideals, and have fun along the way!
