I've saved everything my boys have ever made for me, along with every news article, music program, note from the teacher, report card, etc. It started as a 'baby box' filled with little things. Then there were baby BOXES and now it's the baby box storage room. My 21 year old is still giving me things to put in his 'baby box.' How big does he think that box is? Nevertheless, our kids' creations are our treasures. I need to do some editing, but instead I decided to add to the collection.
I took some time out today to translate one of those little treasures into fabric. Somehow, making something that relates to my family lessens the stress of the day. This made me smile too. I think I'm going to make a pair of Christmas potholders. Each time I use them I'll think of my boys.
I love how the arms come right out of Santa's ears. Cute, don't ya think?
