This is a great blog. Full disclosure dept.: Claire’s links to this blog led me to discover Loobylu.
“Loobylu is the personal web site of Claire Robertson.… I am a writer, illustrator, mama, crafter and procrastinator living and dreaming with my raggle-taggle family in a forest on small island in Canada’s Pacific Northwest. We have been here since August 2010. Before that we were suburb dwelling people who lived in Melbourne, Australia. We decided to make our lives a bit more of an adventure – you can read about that here.”
