I've had a little crafty bug from looking at links on Laura's blog, lately.
I have especially enjoyed a website called Mypapercrane.com which is the main web page for this awesome women who makes stuffed food. My favorite is the Caluiflower.
My other favorite things are the giant stuffed tampons. They make me laugh. There aren't any pictures of them on her website currently, but this is the toilet paper roll:
I was thinking that when I have kids (someday) I would liekt hem to have toys that are handmade. I hate all the silly plastic gadgets people get thier kids. It seems like a waste to have so much stuff (on the other hand, there is nothing I like more than watching my niece play in her kitchen). I read this book called "Creature comforts" and it was one of thoose coffee table books that doesn't take half an hour to read, but it was interesting to see all the different kinds of blankets and handmade dolls that these people had hung on to for years and years. I liket he idea of being able to make somethig and endow it with my love so my kids have some tangible thing to hold that proves my love for them.
And now- random cuteness:
This is ultimately very encouraging. Think how perfect a child coming from Josh and me will be!
