handmade


Silent gratitude isn't very much to anyone. - Gertrude Stein

This past week I've been the lucky recipient of some wonderful gestures of friendship from blogging friends. Jamie drew a delightful "cat" version of me. I received these lovely trees in the mail from Paige - thank you so much!


You may remember
Patricia drew an illustration as a gift for me and my family. Yesterday I received the original artwork, along with presents for the family, in the mail. Cal promptly got to work making a fingerprint Santa from his gift, Ed Emberley's Fingerprint Drawing Book. (If you haven't seen Ed Emberley's drawing books, they are a fun resource for children.)



Thank you so very much, my friends!

Lecia,
oh -the joy that you bring to each day, fingerprints and all.
I just knew that the boys would enjoy those, and now you shall never look at "fingerprints" alike!
So glad your little fingers are enjoying the early easter presents!

I want to do little finger paintings with Abbott and Cal. Those are very, very cute!
That Patricia, she is one that is full of surprises-Easter and every other day.

There is nothing better than handmade- and having been on the receiving end myself a time or two, I know how much it means!

Thanks everyone!

Patricia: we can't thank you enough! I can't wait to get your illustration to the framers. So, so thoughtful of you to think of the boys.

Becky: no Etsy shop, but she may have posted a tutorial for these earlier in the winter.
