I'm not the only one with a talent for handicrafts in my house.
Primogeniture enjoys woodworking and has recently made a slew of handcarved wooden pens.
I think the creative process is very important and I enjoy seeing loved ones taking part in this process. I think handicrafts work the brain in ways that are different than schoolwork, physical work or just the normal hanging out watching TV or playing on the computer.
Secundogeniture makes the pens for himself; for gifts; as a way to say "thank you;" or to help raise funds for our local Boy Scouts. I just love that he makes a difference with his own two hands.
