My name is Debbie and I am a farm wife, mother of 4 and keeper of the animals, furry and otherwise.  We live in the rolling hills of SW Iowa in a century old farmhouse that has been in my husband's family for generations.  I love the calm and quite of living in the country.  Although it does have a few drawbacks... like waking up to a skunk that had just sprayed the open window by my head. (and many many more stories like that!)  I still wouldn't change it for the world. 

My husband and I decided long ago that I would stay home with our children.  I have loved every minute of it too.  But I also wanted to be able to help our family with our needs.  We realized the best way to do that was to be more self-sufficient.  And in being more self-sufficient I saw that is was a better lifestyle for our family.  I became more and more aware of the benefits our way of life had for us and our planet.  I now have a passion for anything natural and environmentally friendly. 

Through these years I tried to learn as much as I could.  How to grow and make many things on my own.  I have also gotten used to the comments and looks I get when explaining our lifestyle.  Like when I first started using cloth diapers.  You would have thought I grew a second head or something.  But slowly I realized that I am really not THAT odd :)  Although I do embrace that title with confidence now.

I opened my Etsy Shop in Jan. of 2011.  I offer handmade cold-process soaps and other natural and green products for you and your home.  All my items are made with high quality ingredients.  I use organic when I can.  All of my products are tested and used by me and my family,  so we know what we are selling works and is SAFE for you and your family. 

I also have lip balms, all natural laundry soaps,  reusable sandwich bags, cloth wipes and wash cloths.  I hope to be adding skin balms and lotions in the next year.
