Sunday Surf: Art Poop Consulting

I was dealing with Sasha feeling ill through most of the week as well as a sick Daddy and a touch of sick myself. The good news is that we are all on the mend, though still suffering a little bit. I have not spent much time at the computer because of all that, so the list this week is a bit short:

  • Willard Wigan makes sculptures so small that they fit in the eye of a needle or on the head of a pin! What does he use? It varies. He might use a single grain of sand to carve a church. He might use tiny pieces of glass or even dust particles. He has been known to accidentally inhale a project, can you imagine?!

  • This week I stumbled upon a link to BecoThings. More specifically, their becopotty. They are potties made from waste plant material, so while they last for years in your home they will start biodegrading as soon as you pop them in your garden. How awesome! A biodegradable training potty! Shape-wise they look a little similar to the BBLP, so I'm sure they'd be great for Elimination Communication! They even call it a newborn potty!

    They also make pet food bowls (dishwasher safe!), food scoops, litter scoops, litter trays, and hangers made from recycled cardboard. Their colors are nice, too.

  • I have never (before) paid for any sort of consulting, outside of having my taxes done professionally. However, I was inspired by The Organic Sister back in November when I decided I had to make some major changes in my life. We discussed her consultation services and I was definitely interested. I just wasn't in a position to pay for such services before the holiday. True to my word, I managed it in January. One of her consultation topics is transitions. We had discussed (via email) consultation on how to transition onto the road. We talked yesterday about a more specific topic: income on the road. I have a lot of ideas, possibly too many. While I had to push the idea of "paying someone to be my friend" out of my head, I think I was really looking for some reassurance that I was on the right track and get some feedback. I needed some help choosing which path to take as far as income. It was a good conversation.
