my latest project for the den:
one of the things that was really difficult about moving
across the country from most of our family,
was that i knew that my kids would not get to see
their grandparents,aunts, uncles and cousins
nearly as much as we had grown accustomed to.
i dreamed up this cork board map
as a way for my kids to visualize where
all of our family members live,
as well as locate important places,
such as where they were born,
and our favorite places to visit.
eventually, we will add more pins,
(maybe even with little pictures)
of places we have been together as a family.
nicole did such an amazing job of translating my dream,
and a few sketches into reality.
nicole, who also happens to be my sister in law, is amazingly talented,
and can literally cut ANYTHING out of wood,
and the projects that she and candace continually
whip up never cease to amaze and inspire me.
i LOVE the way it turned out.
thanks aunt nicole!
