Worth Documenting


Today reminded me of the huge bonus we as a family get by having our office at home- days with lots of good, creative energy filling the house. Music playing, plenty of coffee going, creative people all around, making projects happen, doing great work. I am so grateful for the talented people that work with us.
The kids did some intense Spring Break creative work of their own today too, on Lego structures. Stayed in their rooms for most of the day, literally coming out just for meals. Seems they were right where they wanted to be.
The photo is a little peek of our family room. Peter gave me that
wooden viking, one of my favorite things (although his sword
mysteriously broke recently….hmmmm……) I’ll show you the rest of the room soon!
Thank you all so much for your comments and emails. I never say thank you enough. I never get the chance to answer enough of your comments, with even quick things like “Thanks, what a great idea!” or “No way! I hadn’t even thought of that!”. Its probably corny to say I appreciate and read everyone, but its true. I have told Peter that I feel I have friends all over the world because of this space. To stop and think about that in that context can make it feel immense and huge. But somehow, through talking of craft, and family, and home, and life, we all bring it to a personal level that we all identify with. That’s very comforting to me. Thank you for that.

    You know, I think it was in this very spot that I spied some of the most amazing lego buildings EVER, several months (years?) back. We look back on the pictures often, for inspiration, ideas, gumption. Please tell your dear creators that we thank THEM for their genius building designs. (And enjoy your break, adventures and exhaustion alike.)

    Im with Molly, I was just pulling up your blog the other day to see how you ended up organizing all of your legos. We are right in the middle of a 3 boy obsession with all that is lego.
    Oh, and love, love the toile. So pretty and springy.
