Mother Earth Cards

Hello friends,

I've been meaning to write on here for quite some time but I've had some issues with my blogger account/ domain/ accessing emails etc. I'm in the process of getting it all sorted and having everything worked out. My apologies if I have been MIA or not getting back to you. Hopefully I'll be up again running smoothly and have all my photos and old linky parties working again. Please be patient with me.


 

In the meantime, I've had some time on my hands and the creative juices have been flowing. So I'll be adding some new products to my Etsy shop over the next little while as well. Since Spring is in the air and Earth day is just around the corner I want to share with you my Mother Earth cards!


I am an advocate of green living and try my best to teach and teach my son how to care for the Earth. I believe that the Earth is in crisis because of how we have treated it for years. As a mother of a young son I believe it is my responsibility to teach him how to do better. I thought it would be fun to make a set of Mother Earth cards with questions, crafts, activities and acts of service that we can do together to learn about gratitude for our Earth and to help others in our community do the same. In total I came up with sixty things that we can do as a family. 

I typed them up, cut them out, laminated them and attached them with a ring.The cards are very versatile and there are plenty of ideas that you can use with toddlers through to adults. You can use them as an activity a day countdown calendar for Earth day, in a Mother Earth themed gratitude jar or as I have by laminating and binding them together to use on their own. They are perfect for use in families and schools and suitable for toddlers to adults.  

Mother Earth Cards are now available as a pdf download in my Etsy Shop.


How do you teach your family about Earth day and green living?

Hi. My name is Jenn. And I'm a Pin-O-holic.

Yes. That's right. I've got big news to share with you all. It's a total mommyfession actually. I've gone and joined Pinterest. I know, this is probably old news for most of you and you're probably wondering what the heck took me so long? To be honest, I avoided Pinterest because there really isn't enough time in the day and the last thing I need to do is spend more time in front of the computer. But then, many of the bloggers I follow started posting ideas of things they've recreated from Pinterest and raving about how great it is. And so ever the curious, I hopped on the Pinterest bandwagon. I figured I'd just stop on over and check it out and see what all the fuss is about. But then THIS happened...






Just in case you didn't catch that let me share with you again. I now have 48 BOARDS and 726 PINS....48 BOARDS AND 726 PINS!!!!
I'm sure that's small peanuts in the grand scheme of things but let me admit to you that I've only actually had Pinterest for 3 weeks. Yup. That's all. I. CAN'T. STOP. PINNING. ALL. THE. THINGS!!!!!


Phew...glad I got that off my chest! To all of my fellow pin-o-holic friends, I invite you to come on over to the dark side and follow along with My Delicious Ambiguity. You KNOW you want to. You HAVE to really. I've shared my deep dark secret with you now so you kinda owe me, no? 


Now if you'll excuse me I've got some more pinning to do! Looking forward to seeing what you've been up to.

Delicious Ambiguity Is 2 & an update

Hello friends,

Just stopping in today to say THANK YOU for your continued support. I started this blog two years ago and never in my wildest dreams did I think that it would grow as big as it has! Thank you for stopping by and reading, leaving wonderful comments, voting for my blog on popular sites and sharing it with friends. Your support means the world to me and I am so grateful and honored!

If you've been following me since the beginning or during MDAs first year you would have noticed that my posts have become sparse and that I never share anything personal on here anymore.  I took a break needing to go inward and needing some privacy to deal with all of the curve balls that life has been throwing at me these days. But I also choose to not write about my personal life because I wasn't sure how YOU, the readers of MDA, would respond.  

I continue to find huge comfort and relief in others bloggers writing by knowing someone else had been through something similar and therefore removing the loneliness and frustration I've often felt as a parent and as a woman. Some posts have opened my eyes to things I didn't previously understand and have changed the way I think. Taking a break has helped me to understand that as long as I'm not going out there with the intention of hurting or offending there's nothing wrong with expressing an opinion AND that it's actually necessary where blogging is concerned.

I wish there was more time in the day and that I could say with great certainty that you will be seeing a lot more posts around here. However, spending quality time with my son and taking time for myself are still my greatest priorities and will continue to come first. I can, however, promise you, quality posts written from the heart that at times will be messy and convoluted like life. My heart is BURSTING at the seams with stories- about parenting, living gluten free, postpartum depression, abusive relationships, single parenting, weight loss and most recently my sons journey in diagnoses with what I believe to be Sensory Processing Disorder. Did you get all that?!

Seriously, I AM BURSTING with things I need to share and I hope that, you, my readers will respond positively. I also hope to hear your stories and feature some of them on here too. Sharing is a source of great healing and in doing so I hope that together can create awareness, inspire others and that ultimately this blog will be better for it.

Thoughts?
