for my quirky wonderful family, because they've made me who i am and for all the ways they continue to enrich my life. for my superfriends, because together we've made an amazing, lucky, close village in which to raise our kids, and they help me every day to be a better mom. for my amazing husband, because we understand each other and he loves me no matter what, and because i can't think of a better person to share my life with. for all our family here in texas, because being so near to loved ones is really a gift, and because anyone would feel lucky to have married into a family like this one. for the fact that i have enough food to eat and feed to my daughter, and we have a safe place to live, and i don't have to worry every night how we'll make it through the next day. and last, but absolutely never least, for my beautiful daughter, because she fills my days with amazement and fills my heart with a kind of love that i never could have imagined possible.
for these things and more, i'm so thankful. and i just wanted to say so.
I'm a life-long amateur crafter who can't quite seem to focus. You can find me decorating a cake, crocheting, quilting, sewing, embroidering, dying eggs, or generally just making stuff into other more interesting stuff. I love applying traditional techniques in new ways (with apologies to my grandmother).
