…A Little About Me…

I am a stay-at-home mom who homeschools my two daughters (ages 16 and 14). Both of my daughters were born in China, and adopted at 11 months and 10 months respectively.

My approach to homeschooling is rather eclectic - combining PSEO, unit study, Charlotte Mason, Waldorf, and Montessori approaches. This combination works well with both daughters. Harvest Moon by Hand offers some of the items that I have created for an at-home learning environment.

…A Little About Me…

I am a stay-at-home mom who homeschools my two daughters (ages 16 and 14). Both of my daughters were born in China, and adopted at 11 months and 10 months respectively.

My approach to homeschooling is rather eclectic - combining PSEO, unit study, Charlotte Mason, Waldorf, and Montessori approaches. This combination works well with both daughters. Harvest Moon by Hand offers some of the items that I have created for an at-home learning environment.

I have always enjoyed crafting – especially embroidery, needle-felting, needlepoint, crocheting, and cross-stitching. I hope to pass the joy I feel when I craft along to those who purchase my items.

Because both my daughters loved to play and use their imagination when they were younger, I made many of their toys and quilts by hand – all from natural materials (primarily wool and cotton).

Knowing they had quality, safe (and lead-free) toys and quilts was important. My hope is that the toys can be passed along to their children…thereby becoming family heirlooms.

Because the girls learn at home, I enjoy decorating the windows with colorful window stars and creating seasonal nature tables for them. (There are many versions of the Waldorf-inspired window stars available in my Etsy shop.)

I also love photography, and have some of my photos at: http://www.flickr.com/photos/picturesbyann/ .
