Hello from the Toymaker

Everyday is a Gift.

Well, this year whooshed by like a freight train. How can it be December already? I've been busy helping take care of my mom. She's going to be 91 next month and is a perpetual sunbeam. The hub is teaching fifth grade this year and his students are hysterically funny. He's getting them excited about reading which makes my day. The Boy is getting ready to graduate from college in two weeks. He spoils us by cooking dinner a couple of times a week.

I've been having a lot of fun making extra toys for my Patreon page. Check it out if you get a chance. I'm working on Fairy Letters to send out and more easy to make decorations.

Wishing you a creative week!

Thank you to my lovely Patreons

Thank you so much to all my supporters on Patreon.

Your generosity allows me to make more paper toys to share!

I've been posting little creative treats, previews and sketchbook pages on most Sundays.

I've also added two new tiers, Shining Stars and Magical Beings.

(Magical Beings will receive a handmade Fairy Letter in December)
