"It seems to me we can never give up longing and wishing while we are alive.

There are certain things we feel to be beautiful and good,

and we must hunger for them." – George Eliot

Hello and hello! I hope this letter finds you well and happy. These last few weeks have been the busiest in recent memory here at the Toymaker's Workshop. I had two books at the printers, family in town, the boy out of school for a week on vacation, then we all got the flu. And you know what? We all managed, projects got completed, homework got done, we are on the mend,the books look great thanks to some awesome pressmen, and now we are ready to go on to the next thing. So what are your goals for the next few weeks? Something fun I hope! It is my wish that you make a toy or card and give it to someone special to brighten their day.

Best thoughts,


"Here, the leaves are falling
Although my neighbors are all barbarians,
And you, you are a thousand miles away,
There are always two cups at my table.

Stop by my blog and read all about our merry adventures.
And do say hello! I’d love to hear from you!
