I have spent a good portion of the nearly 2 years of The Crazy Elephant trying to figure out what I wanted it to be. Last night we finally decided. and this is what I have put together...

The Crazy Elephant where you will find handcrafted items to help make your family a little more green, designed by Adam and Michelle. We still have some non-green items in our shop as it isn't very green to just get rid of them, but we are moving forward with the idea of being green and keeping with our high standard of quality. With that you will notice a new look in our artfire shop ( and our etsy shop will be getting a new look in the following weeks as well. Having a craft based business is such a game of trial and error, but as time passes I feel so much more confident in what I am doing and I am able to make decisions for The Crazy Elephant so much more deliberately now. It is a good feeling to know that I can do my best for my customers, my family, and myself. Have a great day and make sure to do something big in your life today too!

Homeschool Fun: Knights

It is going to be mostly pics today. We have had a fun start to knight week. Jayne played lego knights with his daddy and people knights too.

His name is Croci the crocodileand he is Jayne's new puppet friend for school. We were going to wait for Ziggy the Zebra with his all about reading class in the fall but he is to advanced for the level that Ziggy comes with so we let him choose a friend for himself. Now on to the pictures!

DIY Little Passports

Adam came up with the idea first and I loved it, then stressed about it, then hated it, then it really grew on me... I'm confusing, I know! We have been getting little passports in the mail for a few months now and Little Guy just loves it. We like it too, don't get me wrong, but for the $15 we are paying each month for the 2 year subscription we feel like we could do better. So the idea was this, let's make our own! I loved the idea, because we could do much cooler souvenirs and relate them to people that we know who have been there too. We could also go anywhere and better form them to what we are learning about. The part that stressed me out was that it meant doing a ton of research and writting the letters on top of everything a homeschool mom already does, I did not like that at all. Today I realized that I know a lot of people who have been to other countries. With their help I would have a launching point to write the letters and any kind of idea what kind of souven…

Bean Plant Experiment Finale

What did we learn? Sun and water give the best affect, of course. We also saw that water and sun are not equally important to plants. A plant can still grow and produce beans without water, albeit stunted. No sun and  the bean plant is doomed to death. Plants 1 and 2 both have bean pods growing now.
