Crafting & Catching Up

I've not posted in too long! This week found me crafting up a storm to participate in a little local holiday street fair with some of my mountaingirl tribe, peddling our fused glass and felted wares. I had little time for anything else! Creating during the holidays is especially satisfying to me-making gifts for loved ones isn't something I make a point to do every year, so I'm really HAPPY to be doing it this year! Squishing the hot, soapy water into the smelly sheeps wool and listening to Christmas music-bliss, I tell you.

I want to point you to one of my favorite mamas on the web who interviewed me for her monthly "Mom to Mom" piece this month. Wendy has another post which demands attention from any readers who believe that the choice of co-sleeping should be left up to parents. There is a NY hospital detailed that makes its patients sign an agreement committing them not to co-sleep with their infants and toddlers. It is so disgustingly out of line for any establishment to refuse care to parents who choose to co-sleep. As if it is some kind of crime or secret guilty pleasure to sleep with one's baby! Egad. Please follow Wendy's link to voice your opinion on this matter. As much as I'd like to pretend my choices aren't often in danger, they are. Honestly, what is next?

If you love to laugh your ass off, listen to this. Oh my good heavens, I almost peed a million times. I had to listen twice. If you are a fan of The Office, go NOW.

That interview was lovely. I'm not a mama yet, but reading things like this inspire me and make me think about what sort of mama I will be. Thanks for sharing!

Ditto what Amy said. Oh darlin', you are so strong and centered in who you are, and becoming a mother has only deepened that in you. I love watching you unfold this way - it is incredibly powerful and inspiring for me as I get ready to dip my toe in the motherhood ocean. (no I'm not pregnant...yet!)
So much love to you! - Mags XOXO

Oh my! I can see you and B in M! To think that a year ago he was so wee and in my arms! Now, he is such a little man! And so freaking cute! He and Pancakes are going to steal all of the attention at my wedding :)
