Moving to Tumblr...

I'm finding it more and more difficult to sit down and post stuff on this blog. I've been experimenting at tumblr.com and find it much more compatible for me.

If you would like to follow us over there the url is http://craftylearning.tumblr.com :)

Homemade Playdough

I made Chai tea scented playdough today. Bring on the Autumn!!!

It was really easy and turned out great. I followed the directions from lilirishlass.blogspot.com.

I think next I might make a rosemary mint:)

*UPDATE*
The Chai playdough grew mold :( Back to the drawing board I go...

Her green fountain branches reach

I'm So Sanguine, Oh So Sanguine...

I'm a sucker for personality tests and the like. I know my Meyer Briggs type but could never decide where I fit on the old humors chart and since the humors are spoken of so often in Waldorftopia I was rather curious.


Your result for The Personality Plus Profiler Test ...

Sanguine

79 Sanguine, 14 Melancholy, 29 Choleric, 14 Phlegmatic
Hail to you who is SANGUINE!!!

Oh how the world needs the Fun Sanguine. The lift of joy in troubled times. The touch of innocence in a jaded era. The gift of humor when we're heavy hearted. The enthusiasm and energy to start over and over again. The creativity and charm to color a drab day. The simplicity of a child in complex situations.

Here is why you totally rock:
You are enthusiastic, excitable, the life of the party, talkative, a story teller, cheerful, sincere, wide eyed & innocent, curious, emotional, demonstrative, and fun. You are adaptable, you live in the present, and you have a good sense of humor. In your workplace, you think up new activities,volunteer for jobs, start in a flashy way, inspire others to join, charm others to work, look great on the surface, have boundless energy, and you are creative and colorful. As a friend you make friends easily, love people, turn disaster into humor, thrive on compliments, seem exciting, are envied by others, don't hold grudges, apologize quickly, prevent dull moments & like spontaneous activities.

Here is how you suck (sorry it is true, but trust me, it'll be okay):
You are a compulsive talker who exaggerates, elaborates, dwells on trivia, gets lost in tangents, and can't remember names. You scare others off, has too much energy for some, you have a loud voice, a loud laugh, and you seem phony to some. You are egotistical, naive, easily angered, immature, frenetic, restless, and disorganized. At work you are forgetful, don't follow through, undisciplined, your priorities are out of order, you would rather talk than work, you decide by feelings, easily distracted, and your confidence fades fast. As a friend you hate to be alone, need to be center stage, want credit, want to be liked and wants to be popular. You dominate conversations, interrupts and don't listen, you answer for others, repeat stories, make excuses and your are fickle.

And yet still, you are everyone's favorite, deservedly so, because you are so wonderful! I mean, everyone has weaknesses, but at least you are interesting! You make life into an adventure. You rock.

Homeschooling Stats

I hate pissing contests between homeschooling and public schooling, it's just not productive or helpful. But I wanted to share this graph because I thought it had a a lot of stats for homeschooling and all in one place:)
