made with love

I just l o v e handmade gifts. It's a simple yet beautiful expression of love. 

I want Logan to grow up with this appreciation, too. 

I want her to appreciate what people do for her, not what they get for her. 

What people sacrifice, not spend. 

I want her to know how doing things for others, can make herself feel good too. 

And that's exactly what we're doing.

This particular pot was for Great-Grandma. I loved listening to Lo as she expressed her feelings about her gift making ["this will be the perfect thing for a Christmas present"], and too her predicted feelings Grandma will have when she receives it: "she will love, love it." 

Melts my heart.

Lo aslo painted heart cut-out magnets-- a perfect little gift throw-in for someone special.

Don't get me wrong, I like store bought gifts just as much as anyone else, but there is something so very special about a gift that someone makes. Especially, when that someone is a sweet, sweet toddler.
