The latest issue is out and it really is full of fun, delicious, and fascinating content! So far we've taken advantage of a scone recipe, I've gathered the acorns and milkweed pods for an angel (or fairy) and we're probably going to be making some salt soap soon. I'll be sure Molly notices the dough clay recipes to make some decorations for her new home, too. Eventually we'll get around to everything. There's lot to learn about Pine and Fireweed inside. During a soapmaking class this summer, we discovered that at least half of the attendees did not know the difference between essential oils and fragrance oils. That is a big deal, so we enlisted an expert to help with that. All in all, this is an issue that has a lot of teaching and learning inside.
