Head, Heart and Handmade

When my children were growing up we had

a family policy that most gifts were to either be handmade by them or someone "tangible". That person was often

me and we would spend time thinking up a wonderful gift that would be unique to the recipient.
I was also

brought up having a reverence for the handmade item. My mother reminds me that I once said "When I grow up I want

to make stuff and people will buy it". So now I put my head, heart and hands into all that I create.
