Fever...How to bring it down naturally

We all know that fever is the body's way of dealing with illness. So while it's not necessarily a bad thing and something we should avoid, there are times when it gets a bit too high and can be dangerous, especially for little ones. You can try to bring down the fever with natural essential oils instead of grabbing the Tylenol or Motrin.

Many users of essential oils have wonderful success with using peppermint to bring down a fever. Adding lavender is even better, and can bring calmness to the person suffering which can always help someone who is ill.

Here are some ways you can do it...

  • Dilute it in V-6 oil or olive oil and apply to the feet. You may not need to dilute it, although with little ones especially it helps to dilute it first to see how they do with it. This seems to be the most popular method, and you can add a drop or two of lavender as stated above.
  • Put 2-4 drops in a bowl of lukewarm water and sponge bath around the abdomen and neck.
  • Put a drop in a cup of hot water or herbal tea and drink it. 

Peppermint is one of those essential oils that is helpful for many common ailments, such as headache, upset stomach, respiratory issues, tiredness, bad breath and even hunger. Make sure you have a bottle of peppermint oil on hand, and you might be able to avoid many other over the counter drugs.


Our little violinists!

I have loved homeschooling even more than I thought I would. Teaching Julianna to read was just amazing to me, to think of how the Lord has created their minds with the ability to learn so many things. To see the whole process from the start is just so precious. Now, doing school with all three of them involved just adds to the fun. Thomas loves when we do his special "school time" learning his letter sounds and colors. Of course his favorite part is aggressively poking out all of the colored pencil puzzle pieces at the end. (Such a boy)

Another part of our homeschooling this year has been teaching the girls violin, which they absolutely love! We are using this cute little book as a starter book, and I have a couple more in their collection. We shoot for practicing 3 times a week for 30 minutes, and one day a week they have free time with violin while I spend time with Thomas. We recently purchased a little plastic violin that plays music for Thomas, and he is just so excited. So here is a picture of our little violinists....

They can't wait to play for family worship with Mommy!


Thinking outside of the box...or toy chest rather

I love finding older pieces of furniture, sanding them, fixing them up and then painting them! Someone was just giving away this toy chest for free. It was older, and had an older design painted on it with some of the paint wearing off. So, I sanded it and repainted it with a flower garden. I added large polka dots to the sides and stripes to the front. A customer ended up purchasing it as a birthday gift for their niece Kendall-which I thought was a wonderful gift idea.

So I encourage you to think outside of the box. You might have an older piece of furniture that you are getting rid of. Is it possible that just a few hours or one day of refinishing and painting could turn that old piece into a piece that you absolutely love? If you would like me to do a custom piece for you, contact me, and we can think of the different ideas and possibilities.

Gift Idea....Name Plaques, Birth Plaques and Monogram Sets

Name plaques have been one of my most popular items with customers. They are a wonderful gift idea for many different occasions: Birthdays, Christmas, Baby Showers, New Babies, Decorating a new room, etc. Recently, a returning customer and realtor ordered a name plaque for her clients who were buying their first home. She found out the colors of their little one year old girl's room, and will give them the gift at closing. I thought this was a very clever idea. A custom name plaque is an inexpensive way to show someone you care and add that extra special touch to their room. Now, remember, these are custom items, so don't just think they are for children. I can paint the background in the colors that would accommodate your living room or kitchen and you can add your family name, a favorite Bible verse or quote. The design is totally up to you.

Here is the plaque I made for the realtor. She told me that the little girl's room was lilac and yellow, and this is what I designed.

 Here are some other examples of name plaques I have painted in the past...

Here are examples of birth certificate plaques, another popular gift idea for welcoming a new baby into the world...

 Also, Monogram Sets look beautiful above a crib or bed in a child's bedroom....

Introduction to my artwork... Previous murals, canvas art and more

 Friday, November 23, 2012

I thought I would share the different types of artwork I have done in the past. Here are some examples for you to see.

 This client picked out a jungle themed bedding, and I painted murals to match it.

This is a canvas wall hanging that I painted.

I painted many stretched canvas growth charts like these. Clients liked these because they hang much nicer on the wall then most other hanging growth charts that bend, and it is a memoir that they can keep forever by taking out the staples and rolling it up.

I also paint sets of stretched canvas painting. The set of three looks really sweet above a crib.

Name plaques were popular as well as it was an inexpensive way to add personalization and a coordinating piece of art to a room.

I also did many rooms with different faux brick and stone. This room was a castle room for a little boy.

I painted the large oil painting above the bed to match the other oil painting that they had gotten on a vacation once. 

This was a room with scripture painted here and there on top of a faux finish. 

This large 25 ft. canvas mural was painted for an Italian Market called Caggiano's on Long Island, NY.

 This is another canvas mural painted for Caggiano's...a nice little Tuscan scene.

I also painted in an Italian restaurant called Pomodorino's on Long Island. This was above the dessert area.

This was a large great room that I faux finished. I think the ceiling was 20 ft. high...That's when I realized that I would be sticking to normal ceilings from then on. I did a lot of praying on that job!


Adoption...Rescued: The Movie

About | Rescued: The Movie

This documentary changed our views on adoption and opened up our eyes to the real purpose of it. I'm pretty sure we just thought that adoption was for parents who couldn't have natural born children. Now we see that it is so much more than that. We have shared this documentary with others and it has helped change their perspective, and bring in a more Biblical perspective on the why of adoption. I encourage you to watch the trailer, and possibly purchase the DVD. Since November is National Adoption Month, you can get a 2nd DVD for only $5 when you purchase one. You could keep one and then pass the other one to friends who might be interested! My favorite quote is from R.C. Sproul Jr. when he says, "God didn't say natural born children are a blessing, God said, children are a blessing."


Family Worship in the Vande Slunt Home

We love our family worship time with Daddy each night! My husband Noel has taken this very seriously after the Lord convicted him of the importance of giving our children the Words of Life daily. We have some wonderful godly men at church that have helped him and encouraged him to get started with this daily activity in our home. 

It really is pretty simple. For us, we start out with singing. Usually I am able to play my viola, which has been such a sweet added on gift to starting this tradition. I played regularly in high school and college, but after that it just never seemed to be a big enough priority to make time for it consistently. It's nice that this is planned time that I don't even need to feel like I am taking from the family in any way. I've also started teaching the girls violin, and they're loving it!

Anyhow, we sing 3 songs usually, and then Noel reads and teaches from the Bible. We started in Genesis and are going to go straight through to Revelation. He goes through 1 to 2 chapters a night, and right now we are in 2 Samuel. After Bible time, we go through our prayer list and each of us pray. As you can see, we just love getting all snuggled up together, and it has become a precious time for our family. On busy days, Noel reads and teaches in the van, and then we sing songs together. It's really sweet when it's a day where we did family worship in the morning, and the girls don't remember. At bedtime they get very concerned and say, "But we didn't do family worship!"

As wives, it takes a bit of transitioning to making this the highest priority. I've had to let things go, (like not having that laundry put away that you see on the end table), and just say that will have to be done later or tomorrow. 

We pray that it would be a true blessing to our children, in the years to come that they would have the Lord's precious words hidden in their hearts.  There are many other things that we could do or get done in that time, but I can't think of anything more valuable.


Hospitality: Buffet Menu Labels...Mini Canvas Art on Mini Easels can become a lost art in homes these days. We can make our lives so busy, that we forget this precious command, that blesses others as well as ourselves. My husband and I began learning a lot about hospitality from different sermons at church, and going over the different verses from the Bible where hospitality is not only mentioned, but commanded to be a part of our lives. As we have reconstructed our schedule to make hospitality a priority, it has blessed us so richly!

When I think we're too busy to offer the hospitality, it is good to remember the lives of those from the past who made such a difference by practicing hospitality. I read of Sarah Edwards, the famous theologian Jonathan Edward's wife, who almost always had someone in their home, and her husband was definitely a busy man. This couple had such an impact on many who came through their home, and they were just being faithful to the commands laid out for them.

I have so much to learn in the area of hospitality, but some points I have learned so far are the following: Your house need not be immaculate, nor does the meal have to be overly fancy and detailed. The heart of hospitality is the fellowship with one another and the conversation being geared to encouraging one another.

Our children absolutely love when we have people in our home! One of my daughter's favorite parts, is putting out these Buffet Menu Labels that I created. This idea comes from the desire to add that special little touch when entertaining the precious ones in your home. Also, even if you only have time to make a simple meal, these pretty little pieces of art will dress up your meal without any work involved, except for putting them out.

Here is a set of hand-painted mini canvases with mini easels featuring a detailed picture and elegant writing to add that unique touch when having friends and family in your home. When serving a buffet, add these "menu labels" to entice your guests to the cuisine you are offering. The canvases are the perfect size at 3" x 4", and the easels present them well. Included are the following mini canvases, each with an easel: Coffee, Tea, Beverages, Hor d'oeuvres, Salad, Sides, Bread, The Main Course, and Desserts.

I can also do custom orders with other words and background colors, even different pictures. Please indicate that in the special requests/questions box.  

Set or Single?
Word/picture for single canvas
"Let love be without hypocrisy. Abhor what is evil. Cling to what is good. Be kindly affectionate to one another with brotherly love, in honor giving preference to one another; not lagging in diligence, fervent in spirit, serving the Lord; rejoicing in hope, patient in tribulation, continuing steadfastly in prayer; distributing to the needs of the saints, given to hospitality."
Romans 12:9-14


Esssential Oil Testimonial: Migraines Are No Longer Experienced

 Thursday, November 22, 2012

I have a few friends that suffer from those horrible migraines. I always feel for them. I feel like such a wimp when I get a normal headache, but it is just so much harder to function and stay productive. I thought this testimonial might be helpful. There are many more on the oil-testimonials website when you search the keyword "migraine". I'm sure for all of you who have tried everything and still suffer from the migraines, you'd be willing to try anything...and essential oils are so much better for you than Tylenol, Excedrin and other medication prescribed for migraines. Let me know if you find an essential oil that helps you-perhaps it can help others, too.

Essential Oils: Migraines Are No Longer Experienced

"Before I started to use essential oils I had many problems. I had migraines all the time. I started to use lavender, lemon in my water everyday, and other oils. I use to take over 8 Ibuprofen a day and that was on a good day. They were like candy to me. Due to work that was all I could take. I have not been back to the Dr. since I started to use the oils. I have no more migraines nothing. I am to the point that I only like water if it has lemon, orange or citrus fresh in it. Other wise it leaves my throat scratchy. I would not live a day with out my oils!"

Pregnancy Update...the sweet sounds of a beating heart and those precious little flutters

Well, it is Thanksgiving Day, and we have much to be thankful for, as always. This little one growing inside of me is reason to give even more thanks to the Lord! I am just about 16 weeks along, with a due date of May 11th. Yesterday the children and I went to the midwife and we were able to hear our sweet baby's heart beating...such a lovely sound. This week I have started feeling little one wiggling and moving about, and with having more pregnancies it really never grows old. The whole process of the Lord knitting together a child in the womb will always amaze me, and we feel so blessed that He has entrusted another one to us. Oh, that we would be faithful parents to this little boy or girl.

Speaking of which, we will hopefully find out the gender of this little one on Tuesday, December 11th. So, to follow our fun little tradition, you can add your vote to our little poll here. What do you think? Will this Baby Vande Slunt be a little brother or sister for Julianna, Rebecca and Thomas?

Usually, when we do this poll, most people say, wait a minute-I want to see a picture! And how have you been feeling? What are you craving? So, I will post a picture-and no we're definitely not having twins. I just tend to show early, and it seems to be more so with each pregnancy. :-)

I had my normal few weeks of nausea, and that is pretty much over at this point and has been for a few weeks. I still get a little queasy before I go to bed. I will say this, it was more like the girls' pregnancies-somewhat mild. Thomas' was the worst so far...although not as bad as some of you ladies have it at all! (Please don't think I'm complaining) I wasn't all that tired, just a week or two of that. I crave meat, eggs, and grapefruit....and chocolate, but that's always a craving of mine, pregnant or not. That's about it as far as symptoms and cravings go.

Now it's time for you to cast your vote...


Birth Stories...My first born Julianna's Birth Story

 Wednesday, November 21, 2012

I love reading birth stories. Birth is such an amazing gift from God and I am always amazed by the whole process. I read many natural birth stories when pregnant with Julianna and it was such an encouragement. Hopefully, this will be an encouragement to  you. The reason it is so long is because it was my longest labor at 40 hours, but it really wasn't as bad as that sounds, just very gradual. And the Ambien that they recommended I take to get sleep in between, I would never do it again! I only took half a dose but I woke up so confused and walking into walls. Ah well, you learn as you go. I thank the Lord for my sweet Julianna Rose who is such a blessing to our family.

This was written by one of the two doulas that helped me through the birth, Robin Rennells.

Dear Julianna,

As one of your mom’s birth doulas, (labor support people) I had the privilege of being present for you birth. The following is the story of your birth as seen through my eyes.

Your mom called me at 5:37 on the morning of October 25, 2006. She had been having mild contractions for about an hour. I encouraged her to rest. She called again at 7:20 and said they were now four to five minutes apart and she was having some bleeding. She said for me to meet them at the hospital.

When I arrived at UNC at 9:15, she was in triage with Susan, one of the midwives. Susan checked her cervix and determined that it was a loose one centimeter dilated, 80-90% effaced, and your head was at negative one station. Susan recommended activity with rest in between to get labor moving. We left the hospital about 9:30 a.m. and went to the local mall to walk around. Your grandmother went with us. We all had lunch together at Bear Rock Café. Your mom really enjoyed the salad she had!

The contractions did not intensify in frequency or strength, so I headed back to Raleigh. Your parents walked around Chapel Hill for a while before returning home as well.

I talked to your mom a few times that day. She was unable to sleep, probably because she was so excited about meeting you! She called me again that night at midnight and said things had picked up. I met her back in triage at UNC with the midwife again.

Susan checked her and this time she was two centimeters dilated, 100% effaced, and at plus one station. This was definite progress, but not enough to warrant admitting your mom to the hospital. She said we could walk around or go home. We walked the halls and stairs of the hospital until about 3:00 a.m. We checked in with Susan again. She recommended that your mom take some Ambien in order to sleep. (She had been up for almost twenty four hours and still had a long road ahead of her.)

She went home and got about three hours of sleep. The next call I received was at 11:45 a.m. She said the contractions had intensified and they were headed back to the hospital. I went to pick up my doula partner, Lara, and we headed back to UNC. We arrived about 12:45. This time, there was great progress. Your mom’s cervix was now seven centimeters dilated! The midwife on call, Jane, said for her to get moving to keep labor progressing.

The nurse, Holly, started a Hep lock and we turned on some lively Christian music your dad had brought. Your mom was so happy and relaxed. Even though she was now in active labor, she smiled and said, “Whatever you guys, I’m so excited!”

She walked some in the hall, sat on the birth ball, and moved around the room. About 1:20 she thought her water was breaking.

Your grandparents came in to see her. Your granddad gave her a big hug and got tears in his eyes. Your mom said, “You’re getting all emotional on me!” and he said, “Come on now, you’re my daughter.” They left to return to the waiting room shortly thereafter.

We talked your mom through the contractions, offering lots of encouragement. A few times she said, “I feel so spoiled, you guys are so great!”

At 2:15 she was perched on all fours in the bed, leaning on the birth ball. Your dad put a rolled up warm blanket on her back and she said “That feels so great.” She got up to go to the bath room and said “The contractions are stronger on the toilet, but that’s good, right?” Your dad stayed close by her, gently stroking her arm during contractions. She began to take on the hazy look of a woman deep in labor. At 2:45 she said, “This is perfect. I couldn’t ask for it to be any better.”

At 2: 58, Jane, the midwife, recommended that they break the remaining water. Your mom was a bit nervous about this, but wanted to continue to progress so she could meet you. At 3:10 she broke the water and there was only a tiny amount of cervix remaining, as she was nine centimeters dilated. Your mom sat up in the bed in a tailor position while your dad read to her from her scripture journal. He gave her Altoids whenever she asked for them, (which was frequently.)

At 3:12 Lara went out to the waiting room to update your grandparents and to bring back some coffee. Your mom reported lots more pressure. Lara and I did a maneuver called the double hip squeeze and applied counter pressure to both of her hips during contractions. We used Lemon Basil cream to rub her hips.

Jane then explained the process of “laboring down.” (This is what women do when they are fully dilated, but not yet having a real urge to push.) She breathed beautifully through the contractions and stayed very calm and peaceful. Never once did she complain. None of the nurses could believe she was not medicated in any way and that she was coping so well. Jane said it was a testament to good labor support. I told them all it was a testament to God because your mom had been praying about your birth for months and months. She and your dad have amazing faith and belief!

At 4:46, she began to push. She used the Rebozo that was tied to the squat bar. At 4: 58 they catheterized her bladder. At that time, Deb O’Connell came on as the new midwife.

We could see tiny bits of your hair as your mom continued to push. Your dad said, “Julianna's having a good hair day!” Then he said this was the best birth he had ever seen.

Your mom pushed with such strength and determination. Deb said, “You are pushing like you have already had a baby!” We suggested that she change positions so we removed the squat bar and she pushed with us helping her hold her legs. We wiped her face with cool clothes and everyone in the room cheered for her and encouraged her. At 7:33, you were born! As soon as your head came out, your dad helped deliver the rest of you and placed you on your moms’ chest. He said, “It’s Julianna! It’s Julianna!” You were crying robustly and were a beautiful pink color. Your mom was ecstatically happy. One of the nurses in the room said, “Oh, I love my job!”

Your dad cut the cord at 7: 36. Lara went to tell your grandparents. They were so happy! The midwife said, “I feel privileged to be here –what a gorgeous birth!”

Shortly thereafter, we helped your mom latch you on to her breast. You took to it very well after about only a minute. We were all so proud of you! Your parents were overwhelmingly joyful to finally meet you.

You have chosen wonderful parents. They love each other very much. They also love Jesus and they will teach you to know and love him too. May your life be full of His abundant blessings and love.

Robin Rennells and Lara Statile
