Watching the children create – watching the play of ideas flow through their minds and then through their fingers into projects for people so important to them – is an incredible experience. Parenting can be so fascinating. Watching children express their personhood is stunning; and when people create they reveal.
I wish I didn’t have to wait weeks to share photos of all the projects brewing in the house. As I do, here are a few photos of other things that are inspiring me at a distance.

Also inspiring me:
- Couldn’t resist snapping up “Gifts to Make” magazine in the store today. A marvelously eclectic mix of craft types, many great ideas, cool page matching the gifts to occasions
- Thoughts of knitting the Wabenschal in a luscious multi-toned yarn keep swirling around my head.
- The idea of a tucked-away space in Sandra’s closet. Wouldn’t a desk and shelves like this be so incredible. Like a jewel box for creativity, perfect for a tween.
