Reasons why SHE typically does.

(Pre-script: For this post to fully make sense, you must first have read the previous post, titled "Reasons I typically Don't." If you have not read it yet, please take the time to do so now. You'll also want to go down to the playlist and click on the song," Beautiful, Scandalous Night," which is the last song on the playlist. It's cool, I'll wait.) Align Center

Today, as it was Christmas, I received some wonderful gifts, such as these: My children received some wonderful, personalized monsters, such as these:
Y'all, these creative bits of wonder came from the generous, loving heart of my sister in law, Sara.
Ahem.
She made them.
SHE MADE THEM!!
she made them.
Even the necklace.
The cute little sachet? Smells like Heaven, assuming that Heaven contains a bit of lemongrass, lavender, and sage...and if that very lavender, lemongrass and sage was grown in Sara's own garden, by Sara's own hands.
But when I told her she had talent, she said "No, I just have a lot of time." Um, I'm pretty sure that me+a lot of time would never equal:(Now please excuse me while I bang my head repeatedly against the nearest wall.)*

XOXO,

P.S. In return, I gave her a snazzy striped shirt which I did not make, but which I also wore, because I am a dork like that, and proud to be.

P.P.S. This post was written in a state of awe and wonder.

*Oh, and don't worry about the head banging thing; I have never banged anything hard enough to actually cause any damage to it or my head.
