Just over a year ago, I started this blog. I had grand visions of becoming a semi-business, making some extra money, etc. This didn't exactly happen as it was quite a bit more involved than I had anticipated.

Both in Egypt and Lithuania, I’ve found many… Continue reading Markets
This plant isn’t very familiar to me coming from the Pacific Northwest part of the U.S. But I’m learning that there is a wide variety of uses for this plant. You can eat it, wear it, built with it, fight with it, cook with it, even make an instrument from it! Photo by Toni Cuenca… Continue reading Bamboo
Do-it-yourself is always a good way to ensure that you know what’s inside. I’ve been looking at various DIY skin care products because my skin is sensitive and trying new products gets to be quite frustrating, not to mention expensive. Sometimes DIY projects are amazing!

Upon moving to Vilnius, something called Solidu shampoo caught my eye. I had heard of shampoo bars before, but had never really been interested, so I grabbed a card at one of the local fairs and proceeded to look them up.
