This young lady is grown now, but my daughter Kathy used to babysit her . She's the daughter of an art teacher that used to teach here in Tipton. Look at her precious little girl. Kendra grew up and went to art school and received her degree. She now designs and make all types of things from recycled materials. She was selling some of her cute thing at the sidestreet mall on Saturday.
This is her husband, sorry I didn't get his name. I asked him if he helped Kendra make things . He said he was her inspiration and her muse. Kendra said, he was amusing. Such a cute family.
I bought a pretty wristlet purse for my daughter Kathy. I thought she would like to have something made by one of the children she had babysat. The tag on the purse says Pockets for Peace....some of the proceeds from Kendra's sales go to local charities. A wonderful reason to buy.
Here we are , into our second week of December, wow. Wishing all of you well. XO
God Bless Kendra and her hubby who are using material for the second time. They are a cute family indeed.ReplyDelete
Munir, I love to see that young people are into recycling. When we were young, we never had everything and we just used things to death as my mother would say. LOL. You know when we were done...it was done. But then here I went and bought a wee little fake tree planted in an old tobacco can. ...which we would have thought as trash...even cans can have a new life. Blessings to you dear Munir. xoxo,SusieDelete
How cool is this?? Kids DO grow up!!ReplyDelete
Second week of December and I am still decorating!! Never again will I start LATE! Happy Monday to YOU, our sweet Susie Q!!
LOL...I love being your Susie Q. Makes me happy. I truly had to get our tree done when I did or heaven nows if I would have finished. I sure did not put much out. I like the way my porch turned out..Only I wish I had some twinkle lights. :):) Bless your hearts, love you, SusieDelete
isn't that amazing, time goes by so fast,, that is a lovely wristlet!ReplyDelete
Laurie, I can barely remember this little artist. I do know that her father designed a little statue at our library...and Kendra has a degree in sculpting. That's is the news from my daughter. My daughter walks lots and I thought that wristlet would be nice for her. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Thanks for sharing, Susie. So enjoy my visits to Tipton. Wishing you a merry Monday!ReplyDelete
Carol, I am always going to love my little town...but oh girl, your town excites me. Blessings to you, be safe. xoxo,SusieDelete
I'm with Carol. I love visiting you in Tipton too. How cool that you met up with Kendra and her sweet family. I'm forever meeting kids I taught in Sunday School. Most of the time I remember them, but sometimes I don't and it's very embarrassing. I know Kathy will love having something that Kendra made.ReplyDelete
Thank you Kathy. My daughter who teaches says she really feels old when she sees kids she taught...so I know what you mean. I think all my daughers sat for kids here and there. Kendra's parents were very artistic too. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Isn't it funny when we see someone that we used to babysit when they were little? I only babysat one time in my life, and my parent's house was right down the street in case I needed anything hahaha. Her son is so cute with that curly blonde hair. That's nice that the proceeds go to charities from the items that she makes.ReplyDelete
Enjoy this month of December, Susie!
Sheri, I used to like to babysit when I was young...but most often I had to watch my siblings for free. LOL. My daughter Kathy liked this young lady...she was probably well behaved. That little curly hair sweetie is Kendra's adopted daughter. Yes her hair was like the tiniest curls. My daughter did babysit many teachers' children. Come to think of it, I babysat my science teachers kids a couple times. I love kids to pieces...but wowwee, babysitting would be a hard job these days. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
It's gratifying to see the children in our lives grow up well! Cute family indeed.ReplyDelete
Vee, It's a wonderful feeling to think about kids that were good growing into up standing citizens. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Cute little family. That little girl has some serious curls, hah. Nice gift for a nice cause.ReplyDelete
Debby, Kendra and her husband adopted this little girl..so her hair isn't smooth likes her parents...and oh boy it was super curly. I loved it. :) Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
The wristlet is adorable and I know your daughter will treasure it. I love to buy gifts from folks like Kendra.ReplyDelete
Mildred, I am hoping my daughter will use the purse when she goes walking or shopping. It is nice to buy something that gives back to others. Blessings to you, xoxo,SusieDelete
If anyone wants to see more of Kendra's items you can find her at www.handbagsforhealing.com She also has an Etsy shop and Facebook page. Sorry for the shameless plug Mom!ReplyDelete
Hi Honey, No that is fine...I should have thought of that plus myself. Kathy, she was so happy when I told her you sent me to look for her and get her pictures and tell her hello. It just made her seem so happy. She was so glad to talk about what was going on in her life, like living near her folks. I love you sweetheart, ,hope you liked the wristlet. Love, mommyDelete
HI Susie, how special to get your daughter a craft made by someone she babysat. I don't like to think it is the second week of the month-I e got most everything done but one sewing project with the grabddaughters to make and it will be a challenge!ReplyDelete
Hi Noreen, My daughter sent me an email and said when she saw the picture of Kendra on my blog...she cried thinking of her as grown and now a mom. I hope you show us all what you and the granddaughters are sewing. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
Man how they do grow. I haven't seen my Godchild since the mid '80s. I just reconnected with her and her kids are all grown. How time has flown.ReplyDelete
Boston Boy, I bet you were a wonderful godparent. You know we see the ones near us growing, that is shocking enough...but then to see someone who may live far away all grown up...it's like, "oh no this can't be." Hug and squeeze them every chance you get...for they are growing as we speak. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
p.s. I am so happy we haven't had anymore snow for now.
What a very special gift for your daughter. I'm sure she will treasure it! I love gifts that keep on giving as well. Blessings, CindyReplyDelete
Cindy, I do too. Some times that is even an encouragement to buy something. Blessings, xoxo,SusieDelete
