The education of my child has been by FAR the hardest part of parenting. Why didn't anyone tell us? Or were things just different when we were growing up? I don't know, but I'll tell you all of my friends are feeling the same way. It's crazy.

Thanks for sharing this! I'm inspired. I too wish I had gone to art school but even at 42 years old I'm still too scared to branch out. I love to sew, bake, read and create, but only for myself and my family. It seems too scary to share it with the rest of the world at this point! Silly - I know. I wish you the best of luck and I think your work is beautiful. You a true talent and I hope you continue to follow your passion. Keep us posted on your experience with your mentor!!

Anywho, this video is an interesting take on our current school system and it's future. I can't say I disagree with him....... Continue reading

I saw a bag similar to this in one of the French General books and thought to myself, I can make that. The picture is awful and the bag is actually much cuter in person. I used it this weekend... Continue reading
