I grew up on a farm. My dad was a full time grain farmer and also an avid conservationist. I adored my dad. He passed away from pancreatic cancer in 1996 when I was a Sophomore in college. My grandma still lives on the farm. I now live in town which is about 15 minutes from the farm and the house I grew up in. I miss it now that we are no longer directly a part of it like we once were. It is nice to visit and I love to see my kids run around on the farm when we visit Grandma. The above photo is my daughter and niece at the Easter Egg hunt we had on Saturday.
I think the way I was raised has a huge impact on the style I have in my crafts. I love nature and I love all things that grow. I am so happy spring is here and that I will be spending more time outside with the kids.
