Giving handmade or secondhand gifts is important to me. Instead of purchasing all new materials, which puts a heavy demand on Mother Earth, I repurpose existing supplies into my creations giving them a unique character. A sweater turns into a wreath. A tee shirt into a skirt. Discarded items get a new chance and are saved from the landfill.
I work in the Barn and on the Blog during nap time and night time. I get free time when the kiddos are hanging with Daddy. I also incorporate my work into our everyday lives. The boys love to help. And although they aren’t the most productive times, they are my favorite times. I want to show my children that gifts should speak to your personality and your priorities.
