Isabelle's new Etsy shop (Bella's Wonders)

So Isabelle loves being an artist and entrepreneur. She has seen me put together my Etsy shop and create the many things that I do. She wants to sell her creations as well to others out there. So I have sat down with her and created her own Etsy shop. She wants to earn enough money for a new laptop computer and other things. Please check out her shop as we add more of her things and if you'd like go ahead and purchase something, I know she would be thrilled. http://bellboo.etsy.com. We will be adding more to her shop so keep checking back.

Organic tribe thredz Etsy store

So here we are again, it's been a week or so since we have posted. We have been pretty busy. One of the things that we have done is created more product to sell on the road. For those that are new with us, I (Steve) sew a lot of things to sell to support our travels. I sew patchwork and panel skirts, hair ties, bags (small & large) and many other items as they are created in my mind. The coolest part about most of the things I sew is that the fabrics are from recycled clothing, drapes,bed spreads and anything else that may have fabric on it. Most of the power that is used to sew comes from our solar panels on the Skoolie. It's really cool to say that my creations are pretty much 100% recycled materials. Besides the things that I sew Bryce and Isabelle love to make jewelery. So tell all your friends and families about our Etsy store. I just added new stuff to it yesterday and there is much more coming in the future. If you decide to open an Etsy store tell them we sent you, I think we get some kind of points for it. Enjoy looking through the things we love to make and if you feel the urge go ahead and buy something while your there. We would appreciate it. Remember Christmas in July is right around the corner, don't be caught with out anything. Thank you for so many of our frinds and family who have supported our cause and bought items from us in the past. We hope to sell much more in the future. The website is http://organictribe.etsy.com Thanks

Funeral & Family

We were in LA when we got the sad news that Steve's Grandmom died. The funeral was to be in Bryce Canyon Utah. We decided to all go and show our love & support for our family. We spent a night in Las Vegas on the way. We forgot how UN-kid friendly Vegas is till we got there. It was unusually cold & windy and the few things we thought we could do with the kids was closed...the pirate show, the tigers, the volcano, ect. We did get to see the fountains at the Bellagio, which sprayed us cause it was soooo windy, but always really neat to watch!

We got into Bryce Canyon the night before the funeral. It was a beautiful drive from Cedar City! There had been a big snow storm the night before and everything was white. We had never seen Bryce in the winter and it was beautiful! A big change in weather seeing as we have spent most of the winter in Mexico & sunny LA. It was really nice to see so much family! All of Steve's siblings made it to the funeral except Kathy & Heather (who were missed). It was sad to say goodbye to Grandmom, but a good time to bond & reconnect with family. There were cousins there that Steve had not seen in years, children we had never met and we had a really nice time meeting & catching up with family. Our kiddos had a great time playing with cousins & seeing Grandmom & Grandpa & all the Aunts & Uncles! We are really blessed with amazing family!
