I come from a long line of sign writers and am happiest with a brush and some paint! Add
paint to fabric and I get really excited!!

This week we have welcomed yet another healthy baby to our extended family! This makes our 10th grand nephew/niece and we are just as excited about this little guy as we were about the first little one many years ago!

These days my favourite baby gift comes from my incredibly creative sister and her knitting needles. Joanne has spent her entire life designing and creating and her knitting business is her latest success. Often times when we were kids, I ended up being her palette. Most memorable was the time she painted my legs with acrylics. I had lovely vines of colourful flowers from toes to hips and I was thrilled! In my mind, it meant NO MORE LEOTARDS! Mom, however, seemed less than impressed and I spent a number of hours in a bathtub of hot water and soap while I scraped and scrubbed away my personal garden.

The hats Jo creates exhibit the same whimsy that she once created on me. They are delightful and endearing and you can’t help but smile when you see adorable babies wearing her fun, colorful hats!

Treat yourself and check out her etsy shop. Be prepared to be wowed!!
