The Boy Has Mad Skills!

Devin has been learning and growing so much on his Unschooling path. When a teen has total freedom to pursue what interests them, you'd be surprised what they create and learn! Over the last few months Devin has been perfecting the skill of Blacksmithing. He has used Youtube, books and I even facilitated a mentor to come over to show him a few things. Here are some of the amazing projects that he has been working on.

Devin learned that if you boiled chestnuts you could make a natural wood stain. 

He made me some new kitchen utensils!

Devin made a belt buckle and something called a "crooked awl"

He has also started Blacksmithing and Bladesmithing and opened his own Etsy Shop called, "Willow Ironworks" Here is a knife that he made that he calls, "The Patron."

Here is a necklace with a symbol of protection that he created

I love this! It is a unique fork that he created. 

Here was a special gift that Devin made me for the kitchen. 

I love that Devin has time to pursue his passions, skills and interests. Everyday I am more and more grateful for the free and joyful life that we live. Thank you for sharing this journey with us!

~Peace & Love, Dayna
