In my napsack stash
I really, really like spring. It never really meant that much to me, being from California, because our “spring” is only two weeks long and then summer sets in. But here, it is vital to my sanity. A little sunshine here a little sunshine there, while the weather slowly convinces itself to wriggle out of winter’s frigid grasp into the silky rays of sun’s light. Then, the birds start chirping, butterflies float on the breeze, and the fireflies come out at dusk.
Today, I introduce to you a long time friend of mine, Sarah. We grew up with each other. I think a more accurate description would be to say, we grew up in each others homes. Her brother was my brother and my sisters were her sisters. We swapped everything from clothes to bathing suits and …oh, my, the stories could march endlessly across this blog with lots of laughs and tears. As we grew older, we grew apart, then later we reconnected and our friendship was stronger than ever. She’s a true friend, super intelligent, a giver and insanely creative.
On top of having a career in the medical field, she some how finds the time to crochet. She and her husband are a dynamic duo. He is a photographer, pushing the boundaries of normal. I love my friends.
Here she is:
Hi!! My name is Sarah. . . my hobby, being creative. My blog is the product of a variety of ideas. I originally started with the idea of taking something used, old, discarded. . and creating something new out of it. . something creative, eye catching and valuable. . thus the name Sui-Generis came about (it is Latin for unique, one of a kind). My dear grandmother, Nancy, then came out for a visit and taught me some crochet skills . . . the rest kind of just developed
I also have a passion for missions work. . . I wanted to use my talent to promote missions and therefore have decided to donate 50% of all sales made to missions around the world.
She has so kindly donated these two little butterflies just for this giveaway. They’re so sweet! The larger one has a clip and a pin and the smaller has a simple little clip.
