Three wedding hankies commission

 I finally finished these three handkerchiefs. They are gifts from a bride to her mother, grandmother, and future mother-in-law. I think they turned out lovely. I hope for the best for this young bride.

If you are interested in a custom piece, please contact me.

This new year

I wish I had a new project to share with you in this new year. I don't. In addition to motherhood, wifehood, and being a nanny I've been busy working on a commission work I hope to share soon.

I am scaling back this year. I do not think I will do any craft shows. I have many gifts and personal projects I want to work on. If there is any time left I want to build up inventory, possibly all of next year as well. Then, maybe I will be able to get into the craft/art world with a little more gusto.

I also will post less on this blog and tell more stories on facebook. It is simply a way to actually be read by maybe more than just a few. This blog may be where more details and private thoughts can be found.

Last year I started out thinking I wanted to be something that really wasn't who I am. This year I want to be more gentle with myself. I have more peace about who God has made me to be and what He wants of me. I will continue the next step of being me and see where it takes me this year.

For now, it is cake month at our house as we soon celebrate the three kids' birthdays and love is almost in the air.
