Have a child, plant a tree, write a book...

We just planted this tree in the park in front of our house last week. I want to take a picture of both every year. That will be one of our traditions.

Have a child, plant a tree, write a book...that's what Jose Marti said when he was asked what every man ought to do before he dies... so here's my child, and here's my tree. I still have a life to write a book :)

I love that quote! I have to work on the book. Of course if we have our blogs printed as a book does that count?! Thanks for the doll info, I bought gesso today!

What a great idea! It will be so much fun to be able to look back on all the pictures.
Your little girl has grown so much! Time really flies doesn't it?
Such a sweet picture :)

Hi Danita

I am new to blogging and have just discovered your site, wow wow wow, you are ever so clever...!

Am thinking of putting some of my work on esty but not sure, seems so scary.

I also have done two of the things in your lovely quote, and will work on the third.

take care
