Birthday and Advent Ring

Here is a true sign of having a little one around the home again...We wrote this blog post months ago and never published it!  Although it is well past Advent, the ring may be purchased at any time of the year and is beautiful for birthdays and more.

Instead of the traditional four tall candles around a circle, this year we purchased a beautiful, round, wood candle ring  for Advent.  Each Sunday, we light a candle and add a little something extra.  The candle in the middle was given to us by our midwife when Linden was born.  We lit it and sang happy birthday after her blissful home waterbirth.  We have been saving the candle for something special and decided to use it for the middle of the Advent ring. Crystals and stones from homeschooling projects.  Dried sage from our CSA box from the local organic farm.  Ricky made the yellow ceramic candle holder in the middle.

Advent ring by Joshua Rutherford of Honoring Fallen Trees (he does custom orders, too!). Organic candles by Oakmoss. Wood wolf by Halushka. All shops on Etsy. Third week...crystals, plants, beasts....

Hi Jennifer,

I have been following your blog for a few years now and I love what you do. I homeschool and work for a charter school and am in Elk Grove. I know you are busy, but I was wondering if you (and possibly your husband) might be interested in becoming a vendor and teaching classes on fiber arts twice a month to our group next year and possibly other subjects that you might want to do a few week classes on. We usually have about ten to fifteen students in our classes and I host them in my home. Let me know at mcalapp at ieminc dot org.
