Starting off simple…

Share

There really is nothing “simple” about trying to be a hippie.  Humans continue to label “hippies” as somewhat outside the norm.  Personally, I think being all natural and organic should be considered NORMAL. There is so much “product” available for consumption these days that most people have no clue what is real and what is […]

Well, it’s official…my hippie-ness is starting to rub off on those around me, and even as far as the mid-Western US.  I have a request to share some recipes!  My niece, and new Mother, Amanda has decided that she wants to learn how to make as much of her own stuff as possible. So, in […]

Saving Money vs. Saving the Planet

Share

Yes, we all know that if you can save money you can live better.  So the story goes. I’m not entirely certain that surfing aisle after of aisle of cheep goods produced by slave labour in a far off country is really going to improve my life one little bit.  But, hey, I’m just a […]

The last show of the season…

Share

Well, we did it – Amelia and I ventured out in -35 and set up shop at the Moonlight Madness Market last night in Melville (40 minutes north of us – for those not sure where Melville is).  Coffee cup and thermos in tow, we set up shop and waited…and waited…and waited… It would seem […]

I’m experimenting with themes and other technical bits – so if you think the site looks pretty weird – you are quite right!! I’m going to get this rolling as soon as I can, but in the meantime, for orders, comments or just to yell at me for fooling around with this sort of thing […]

Eiffel Montemarte

Montemarte…Oh Yea!

Share

As most are aware, I’ve recently taken to the “craft show circuit”.  I was initially a little apprehensive about this, never having presented much of anything to the public, other than my opinions on life.  It’s a great way to kill off a Saturday afternoon, and it gets my Hippie Ways brand out there in […]

The Wonders of WordPress…

Share

Oh how it frustrates me.  After devoting much of my day to viewing YouTube videos on WordPress basics and how to add shopping carts, I have decided to pack it up for the night. I’m tired, owly, and no further ahead than I was this morning! If anyone just happens to be an expert at […]

Bifocals and blackheads…

I turned 50 this past summer.  Yes, 50. I’m not really the type that gets worked up too much over age – after all, once you hit LEGAL age, it’s only math. There are certain things that I’ve noticed in getting older, aside from the usual aches and pains.  The “flying squirrel” arms that come […]

Well, it’s official – Hippie Ways Natural Body Care exists… Now I just need to figure out how I’m going to finance this little operation. Since I found myself rather suddenly unemployed in September (a story unto itself) I’ve been tossing around the idea of unleashing my creative dragons and actually doing something for ME.  […]

On being a self-professed Hippie…

Share

Since I was only born in the ’60′s and not actually RAISED in the ’60′s I get a lot of strange looks when I announce to those who ask that I am 100% hippie.   I’ll have to say that the majority of strange looks come from the younger folks I know.  Occasionally they will ask […]
