Introduction I'm Joy, wife to Paul, stay-at-home mom to Elizabeth (17) and Finn (11), and stepmom to Paulie (18) and Philip (15). I blog at An Art Family to remember their childhood and to make sure I get plenty of pictures of it in the process. I blog at The Book Children to satiate my love of discussing the hundreds of children's books I consume each year. We spend our days painting, drawing, reading, digging in dirt, walking in nature, stretching our imaginations, trying to enhance learning and creativity at home in a natural way, and then reading some more.
Interests natural living, pottery, felting, knitting, dyeing, some sewing, art museums, reading kid lit, travel, waldorf parenting, canning, gardening
