for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:
it is the time for home." ~ Edith Sitwell


Hello from the Toymaker

Everyday is a Gift.


Popping up like a meercat to say hello and send good wishes your way. It's been a year for resting up. The cancer treatment that I've been getting is working a treat and, other than being a little tired sometimes, things are going great.

I haven't made a lot of paper toys this year but I'm hoping to finish some of the ones that I have started and post soon. I've read 35 books this year, played ukulele for my 91-year-old mom and spent a lot of time in the kitchen trying out new recipes. I hope that you've had a good 2022 too, and wherever in the world you find yourself, you are safe and warm.

Wishing you a creative New Year!

"In winter we lead a more inward life.

Our hearts are warm and cheery, like cottages under drifts, whose windows and doors are half concealed,

but from whose chimneys the smoke cheerfully ascends.”

~ "Henry David Thoreau
