I never really realized how much time and energy my mom put into raising my two sisters and I (with the help of my dad, of course!) until I had three kids of my own. She took 12 years off of her teaching career in order to be there every step of the way for us. I know she'll be the first to tell you that those years were the most challenging and the most meaningful of her life.
I wanted to celebrate my mother in a layout, paralleling her time with us and my time with my three munchkins. I came up with this:
I used Cosmo Cricket's "Material Girl" line as a tribute to my mother's sewing, knitting and crafting prowress. I hope I continue to get as much joy out of crafting as she still does!!
My name is Bronwyn and I am so glad you have stopped by for a visit. I hope you find joy and inspiration in everything you see here. I live with my family in a new, builder-grade townhome in a small city, even though my dream home would be a century old farmhouse in the countryside. Daily I strive to add warmth, "age," and character to our little home. I love to knit, crochet, sew, decorate, bake and go thrift shopping. These are all a wonderful release after my three small children are off to bed each evening. Thankfully, I have a patient and understanding husband, Kevin, who allows me to bring all kinds of crazy things into our home in the the name of "creativity."
