Designer Birdhouses For A Cause

Born in 2012, my husband Steve began creating birdhouses out of the over abundance of scrap wood, metal and vintage artifacts we have collected over the last 12 years! Harvesting our creative energies, these birdhouses have given us the inspiration to do more and go further than just work, school and bills.

"Any intelligent fool can make things bigger and more complex... It takes a touch of genius - and a lot of courage to move in the opposite direction." Albert Einstein

Our project is self sustainability. Homesteading. To live a life without boundaries. We have found as parents that our lives have become reliant on material items, possessions, bills and debt. All of which have caused and affected another. It is time for us as a family to make a change. To take our goals and dreams and fuse it with our proficiency, trades and wisdom. To show our children a world that has been long forgotten. They will aquire life skills no one but their parents can teach them. We will show them hard work and perserverance pay off. Steve and I will continue our artifacts, collecting supplies all over the country and selling them as we go. We will homestead through a group called WWOOF (worldwide org of organic farmers) as well as other work opportunities. Over the next few weeks, we are riding ourselves of possessions, collecting our abilities, and setting off into the United States of America. We will show our children the biggest classroom ever, with endless learning opportunities. Steve and I have goals of our own as well. Mentoring as we go, sharing our wisdom, making a difference one person at a time. Sending a message of humanity to all those willing to listen. I myself plan to enlighten friendly folk about the importance of healthy eating, spreading my vegan goodness wherever I go. You may even find me speaking at a local farmers market or selling my vegan goodies! Steve plans to embark on a journey of human awareness and communication. A natural problem solver, he will appear when you need him most. Our children, Natalie, Mariah, Sebastian and Simon will also have their natural talents to offer. Natalie will begin brodcasting our journey through YouTube, educating the world with her technological skills. If technology has become such a large part of her life through our absence of her education, then the goal is to put it to its greatest use. Mariah has a love for nature and its creatures, she will embark on journey of helping our furry little friends with compassion and love. Sebastian is our reptile go- to guy. He knows many of serpents and can be an asset to this journey as well as a mentor to other children. Finally, Simon, our wolf boy. This special boy has the Native American decent to take his wolf instincts and apply them in the real world.

Thank you to all our family and friends for your continued support!
