Being Creative

I'm feeling quite pleased with a bit of creating I did last night. I wanted to make a little thank you gift for a wonderful woman who has cared for my baby girl on Monday mornings since September while I participated a parenting group. The group takes place at the church where Cooper attends preschool. This woman has been more of a friend to me than I'm sure she realizes, but most of all she has loved my Ellery. Any mother understands that those who love your babies are held closely your heart. So, a little handmade love was needed.

Three hand decorated Moleskine notebooks, for accomplishments, hopes and dreams, and creating, along with a set a Flair felt tip markers.





In gratitude.

Kelly, the books look great and it was a very gracious gift to give. I run a home daycare, so coming from the other side of it....yes, we do love your children as if they were our own. I am so grateful everyday to be a part of the kid's lives and to spend time with them and get to know them, as I am sure Ellery's caregiver feels the same.

Kelly, those are so beautiful. Hand drawn, and so personal. Moleskins and I have a very special relationship (they are in my bags, and drawers, and desks, etc.), and this is such a gorgeous way to decorate.
