I have decided to recycle the cardboard at work, and make a book of fond memories for my girls based on my past, and their childhood. The above is the very first page. It contains all the magical elements from my Oma (Grandmother) that I am now sharing with my children.
When I was a child I would explore her sewing room, gathering buttons and fabrics, and simply sitting around all of them in awe. Organizing the buttons was one of my favorite things to do.
My Oma called me her Sunshine #1, as I was the 1st Grandchild, however I was but one of the many rays of sunshine in her life. My Oma was a dreamer, and had so much talent. She had magical butterflies in her bedroom that moved during the night, and when I stayed with her each summer, I would awaken to find them in different places. I taught her how to say her first french word as well; Papillon!
I hope I have inspired you to look into your memories and start creating.
