(re)capturing the fun & wonder

I took the handmade pledge!

I Took The Handmade Pledge! BuyHandmade.org


Ashley Hogan posted today on MOMformation about the Handmade Pledge. It’s rather silly really … how excited I got about the whole concept!

Several years ago we did a handmade gift exchange with Tomas’ family and it was the most fun we’d had in a long time. Figuring out exactly what to make for who and then figuring out how to actually get it all done in time was a priceless experience.  Much more fun and meaningful than rushing around a mall.

Tomas’ mother still displays my sad attempt at embroidery in her
home in Denmark — though I’m thinking in retrospect that it might be out as a belly-laugh inducing conversation piece…

This year I’m up for the challenge of either making things myself or buying handmade.

I can’t wait!! Won’t you join me?
