TheRushingRiver's Giveaway Time!!
I’ve recently gained a lot of followers and I wanted to show you all how grateful I am by doing a giveaway.
These are all examples of dream catchers I can make.
I will make a custom dream catcher for the winner of this giveaway.
I can make any word or name out of copper or black wire. I can do themes like fairies, the ocean, the forest, the galaxy, or we can talk about whatever you’d like and I have on hand. I have ton of charms, crystals, glass and wood beads, shells, and natural stones. You can choose your favorite colors and have a dream catcher completely personalized to you.
Some of these are up on my etsy, you can also get a better idea of all the things I can do there.
only reblogs count, reblog as many times as you like, no giveaway blogs
If you like reblog with what you’d want as a dreamcatcher =)
have to be in the US (I can barely afford to ship it that way sorry)
Ends on March 15 (or the Ides of March)
You’ll have 48 hours to reply to my ask (make sure you have one)
(my dream catchers are really just a type of art piece I do that I can easily categorize as dream catcher. They don’t have the cultural or spiritual backing and should be considered ornate art pieces)
i made this last night with my boyfriend, and it was AMAZING! less than ten ingredients, but full of flavor and accommodating to his vegetarianism and my gluten intolerance. we paired it with the super easy flatbread recipe (i substituted gluten free flour and it was just as tasty!).
- 6 cups low sodium vegetable broth (we just used veggie bouillon cubes)
- 1 medium red onion, chopped (we subbed in a yellow onion since that’s what i had in the kitchen)
- 2 tablespoons peeled and minced fresh ginger
- 4 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 bunch collard greens, ribs removed and leaves chopped into 1-inch strips (we used kale instead, and ripped it by hand)
- ¾ cup unsalted peanut butter (we just used regular chunky peanut butter and it was fucking delicious)
- ½ cup tomato paste*
- Hot sauce, like sriracha (AKA rooster sauce)
- In a medium Dutch oven or stock pot, bring the broth to a boil. Add the onion, ginger, garlic and salt. Cook on medium-low heat for 20 minutes.
- In a medium-sized, heat-safe mixing bowl, combine the peanut butter and tomato paste, then transfer 1 to 2 cups of the hot stock to the bowl. Whisk the mixture together until smooth, then pour the peanut mixture back into the soup and mix well. Stir in the collard greens and season the soup with hot sauce to taste. Simmer for about 15 more minutes on medium-low heat, stirring often.
and done! tastes even better leftover. <3
If you aren’t totally quaking in your boots at the news of millions of bees dead, yet again, you’re nuts.
this should be concerning a lot more people than it is
not only because bees are one of the most important animals in the world and their job is a lot more than gathering honey but also because they are what scientists refer to as an “indicator species”
this means that when their populations start dwindling and then rapidly dropping, humans need to watch their shit because that means that environmental factors are too difficult for THEM to live in, so it might be difficult for US to live in, too. bees basically act as an indication that humans have a lot to worry about and when they start dying like this it deserves a lot more than a few headlines.
last year my biggest worry was the steep decline in bee population and apparently thats not about to change anytime soon. people have told me to my face that they think its strange I’m so concerned for the bees. read this you selfish fucks
Get excited, motherfuckers. Without bees, we will die off. Bayer and Monsanto continue to produce the chemicals that have been proven to kill them, and the government has their backs. Bees pollinate 30% of our food in the US and we are passing legislation to PROTECT the scumbags responsible for killing them.
I preach this shit to everyone who will listen and I always get “WAAAAH I HATE BEES THEY STING AND THEY ARE BIG MEANIES!” but think about your future life without kiwis, cranberries, blueberries, strawberries, blackberries, peaches, sunflowers, cotton, apples, plums, pears, mustard, celery, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, beans, cherries, melons, turnips, canola oil, alfalfa, soybeans, lemons, oranges, and I could go on forever.
Bees are amazing creatures who are responsible for the comfortable lives we lead in this country and we cannot sustain and feed our population without them.
Alright you guys, there’s a good amount of notes on this but it’s only making us aware of the problem, not telling us what we can do to help. We can do something to help and YOU CAN HELP, YES THAT MEANS YOU. ALL YOU NEED IS DIRT, A FEW BUCKS, AND A MOMENT OF YOUR TIME TO MAKE A WORLD OF DIFFERENCE, LITERALLY.
Plant flowers that bees like and that attract them.
Bees prefer flowers that are blue, purple, and yellow. Choose flowers that bloom successively over the spring, summer, and fall seasons such as coreopsis, Russian sage, or germander. They especially love clover! Other plants include sage, salvia, oregano, lavender, ironweed, yarrow, yellow hyssop, alfalfa, honeywort, dragonhead, echinacea, bee balm, buttercup, goldenrod and English thyme. Buy seeds online.
GET RID OF THE PESTICIDES!!
If pesticides are killing off the bees so easily, what do you think it’s doing to us? The EPA says studies have shown pesticides can cause birth defects, nerve damage, and cancer. There are other ways to get rid of pests in the garden than using chemicals. Organic Garden Pests shows you how to keep off the bugs the organic way.
Give the bees a free home!
Please, if you have already reblogged this, reblog this is again with what I have posted onto it so you know what you can do to help. We can make a difference.

Quick mention of the Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation, a nonprofit group doing a LOT of good work for bees and other pollinators, among others.
Take care of the Bees this year! Please plant flowers for them and help them! They help us pollinate our food and live! Give back to the Bees! ;.;
