About Me

About Me:
I am a homeschooling mother of two - a boy and a girl. I am somewhat of an eclectic homeschooler, with preferences for the Charlotte Mason (CM), Latin Centered Curriculum (LCC) and Thomas Jefferson Education (TJE) methods. I am an irregular on the 4 Real and Well Trained Mind (WTM) forums :) and I run several Yahoo Groups based on these homeschooling philosophies.
I am originally from England, but married to but married to an American man and living in Virginia, in the USA.
I like to read, draw, paint, garden, knit, sew, crochet, spin, tat- I love the old fashioned crafts out there!
About My Blog:
Years ago (2006) I decided to set up a herbal blog online.  It gradually evolved into a 'Nature Notebook' of sorts, where I share photos and stories (and journal entries) pertaining to nature an the garden.  I am an avid gardener in the spring, who tends to slack off in the heat of the Virginia summers (the humidity does me in every time).  I would love more than anything to have more sun in the garden, a greenhouse and a flat yard, but alas, none of those things are possible!
You'll see a selection of my art (when I have the time to upload it), all of which is NOT for others to copy. Please ask if you wish to use my pictures, I am very accommodating :)
My art blog can be found over at The Jacobite Rose, while my learning notes are over at Lighting a Fire.
