we made a birthday banner. i made him a birthday crown.
so here i am putting handmade back into my life. i need there to be things crafted with love near me. the plastic toys drive me nuts. i like feeling life in the things i hold. i like watching my children hold and play with things that are real. i am writing this blog because i have found a lifeline in amanda's blog and i love keeping in touch with my cousin and her family in her blog, feeling connected to her while we both create. so it's mostly for me i think, a journal, maybe for my kids to someday see, perhaps? or maybe for you, if there is a you out there reading this, to connect with us or to keep in touch. so... here we go!
