Meet my fellow mama-friend, Liz, creative and artsy as all get out. We go way back to Crestridge where she and I, along with two other wonderful gals, shared a 700 square foot cabin, surely built at least 50 years ago. And I may be generous with the 700…oh, if only walls could talk. She was the Crafts Director that summer – very fitting, you’ll see – and promised to spend her life with a sailor as well. Big summer all around for that little cabin.
Liz is wildly creative, in words and craft, and keeps me well entertained on her blog with her hilarious stories of motherhood, wifedom, and her candid thoughts on religion and politics. Mostly, I love to see what handmade good she comes up with next… and lucky for me (and you!) she opened up shop on Etsy to sell her amazingly precious skirts for little ladies and eventually these awesome little superhero capes for the little dudes. I highly recommend checking her out, you won’t be disappointed.
In celebration of the shop opening, and because she’s cool like that, Liz ran a contest on her blog to win either one of her skirts or capes. Though Noah could definitely pull off the skirt because he is that cute, I opted to enter for the cape (to keep peace in the house)…
AND WE WON!
This is not the actual cape, though it does don an “N” – Noah’s will be some combination of green, blue, and yellow because those are his favorite colors, he told me last week.
So in the spirit of Labor Day (what does this holiday actually celebrate, anyone?) go check out Liz’s labors of love and creativity… and her kid is pretty terrific as well. It’s well worth the time – and what’s better than handmade loveliness?
