Welcome to Twig and Toadstool...

Welcome to Twig and Toadstool!

We have created this blog of ours out of an intense desire to inspire as many women and mothers as possible. Our wish is that by sharing our JOY, creativity, wandering, musings and our own personal journeys that we are on, we will inspire you to inspire others and so on...
We want to be that friend of yours, who you can visit, and we hope when you leave you will feel lighter and brighter and full of good ideas. We also plan on inviting in our own friends and family members who inspire us personally, to share their stories and bright light with you all.

We should start by giving you a bit of background info about ourselves:

I'll go first:

My name is Maureen...I'm mother to 2 delightful little girls, Ruby aged 6 and Matilda aged 1,  (Ruby would like to mention here that our cat Marshmellow is also a member of our family)! We live in a small village in Eastern Ontario, (by small I'm talking a couple hundred folks at best)!  We are a first generation homeschooling family, (occasional unschoolers), who enjoy the best of what is out there...we're a little bit waldorf, and a little bit rock and roll!!  We own a 1/2 acre of land, and we try to get alot out of it, we have chickens year round, lambs in the summer and huge vegetable gardens, (we're working on the fruit)!  My passions are in crafts, sewing, photography, and now that I've finally learnt how, knitting!!  We're also big supporters of the local food movement.  You will spot us at the farmers market every week!!
I'd like to tell you a few words about my friend Shanti...she is wonderful, beautiful, kind and amazing.  I am so happy that we decided to venture into blogging together, as we seem to be the perfect balance for each other.  She is strong in ways that I am not, and vice versa.  I am honoured to have her as a friend!  Now she can tell you a bit more about herself...

Well to follow in suit ~ my name is Shanti...I am incredibly blessed to be mother to Luna Rose (7) and Solana Fae (5). They are the light of my life and continually teach me, challenge me and share with me the wonder and magic in life! I am married to my childhood sweetheart and spend most of my days in the wee town of Killaloe, Ontario soaking up the deliciousness of life. I am a lover of natures unending bounty, creating beauty out of what surrounds me, nourishing my loved ones and those around me with beautiful food and continually searching out ways to  inspire and be inspired. We are a homeschooling family, learning as we go. I love to be witness to the fruits of this choice in my girls and in the unfolding, beautiful friendship they share.
I am grateful for this opportunity to share pieces of my life and the tidbits of inspiration that find me...
Maureen is my fabulous friend that ignited this blog and encourage me to join on and share what I have to offer ~ She shines bright with enthusiasm, creativity and steadfastness. She continually inspires me and occasionally gives me a kick in the pants when I need it ; ).

Welcome to our little corner of the bloggy world!!  We'd be honoured if you'd stay awhile and share with us your comments, stories and enthusiasm!   Come follow us on our journey!
