Christmas already?!

I am going to attempt to do a Christmas with handmade gifts or experiences this year.  Hopefully, this will keep the spending down, which we're actually fairly good at for Christmas giving, and begin to teach H about the value of intentional giving - less about numbers and amount, more about love and community. 

Here are some links to cool things I've been contemplating making for gifts - nothing specific for lurking gift recievers ;-)

reusable snack bags
felt board play house
wee wonderful dolls

and many, many more things....
I'll get better at wrangling my hectic schedule and blogging about what I'm creating, reading, learning, doing, thinking, usw.  for now, thanks for hanging on and letting me take this break.  I'm coming back in full force!!

LGBT Safe Space

A dear friend of mine in seminary posted a blog here calling Christian, and all other, communities to be bold in their inclusivity.  I encourage you to wonder over and read it - wonderfully written but a wonderful woman.
