Because I am one of six children and half of my siblings are spread out across the country, we simplify gift-giving at Christmas by picking names. Each person gives a gift to only one sibling and their family. This year, our family lucked out because Architect Uncle and Teacher Auntie picked us. We received a whole box of hand-crafted maple building-block fun. Check it out.
Gorgeous, right? These blocks were absolutely the perfect gift. In fact, the Cydermaker and I were hoping to BUY blocks like these for our little guy, but weren’t able to find anything in our area that even remotely resembled these. Pretty nice to have a talented and crafty uncle in the family. Thanks Architect Uncle and Teacher Auntie!
And speaking of handmade, I sewed a little something this weekend for a certain Big-Sis-To-Be who lives in Florida. A very early birthday present of sorts.
