My Crafty Creators


From metal to magnificent – by my father, who never ceases to amaze me.

This is one of the many pieces that my dad makes and has on his Etsy shop (which is set up and run by my mother.)

I just received the half windmill and the word BLESSED for my birthday and I couldn’t help but feel blessed with such wonderful creative parents. My dad, the welder. My mom, the craftiest person I know. They both have Etsy shops which is how they make their living now and I’m so proud of them for all of their hard work. My dad has had his own welding business for years and years and is now finally getting to create his own pieces for people literally all over the world. I’m sorry but I have to dote on them a ton because they have spent their life loving and supporting and encouraging me. Hopefully I can spend the rest of my life doing the same for them!

To see more pics of the awesome birthday gifts they made scroll down. Also visit their shops. They are pretty incredible!



This, my mom made. The baskets are on hooks so we can take them down and fill them with deliciousness from the garden

Here are some pics from happy clients. Super fun to see where some of his stuff has ended up and what people do with it.





Probably one of the coolest… stage in NYC. Used his letters and put lights in them for the play.

The apple fell way too far from the tree because my craftiness is pretty much nonexistent.

So here’s to my parents and all of their artistic abilities!!

3 Year Olds Reaction to Another Baby


Conversations with a 3 year old-

Back story, we have an 11 month old who is pulling up and stands on his own for less than a second. This conversation took place because of one of those split seconds balancing acts.

3 year old says as she watches her brother standing up.

Our baby is getting so big!” She exclaims with a huge grin

I know he’s getting so big. Should mommy have another baby?” I ask

Oh no no, that would be just horrible!” She scrunches her nose and shakes her head.

Haha I do believe 3 years olds are super intuitive so I think I’m gonna have to agree with her this time!!

Excuse Me Daddy

(Knock knock joke from a two year old)

“Excuse me daddy, I’m gonna tell you a knock knock joke now.” Little Misses says.

“Okay, go ahead.” Daddy says

“Knock knock.”

“Who’s there?” Daddy asks.


“Mary who?”

“Mary Christmas and Happy Holidays.” Two year old then smiles shyly and runs off laughing hysterically.

She obviously has her dads sense of humor.😂
