Things Handmade – also Solexx (not handmade, but you can use it to make things). I’ve been playing with plant dyes, making bags and toys, mixing up lotions & potions, dabbling in mixed media, making willow sculptures… my husband, Jeff, makes the beehives and other wooden things. I will be sharing some of these things here. Some overlap here with the Useful Plant section, because this used to be the General Store, and Yes, we are happy to take custom orders, barter, sell, and trade. As always, inspiration is free!
