Nature or Nurture

I’ve ALWAYS believed that creative activities are important and I nurtured that in the boys growing up. I love seeing both of them pursue creative activities. Chris has done a variety of things in the past and now he’s doing a bit of woodworking … he texted me a few days ago saying he was making a frame for a photo for Keith’s new office. Keith parents and his brother, Mark have all passed away so I LOVE this first project of Chris’. What a special gift for his father.

I also love that I got a couple coasters from the leftover corners of the frames he’s been making.

Chris also shared this work in progress from Adam. Buddy is Chris’ dog that passed away about a year or so ago and Adam is painting a picture of him for Chris. Adam’s talent is drawing and I’ve shared other bits of his work here on the blog.

I’m so happy that the “crafty” time I spent with both boys while they were growing up seeded a creative force in both of them.

  1. Chris and Adam’s projects are really beautiful — but the MOST beautiful is the love they are giving to family — Chris to his dad and Adam to his brother. Your heart must be full!

  2. You have a couple of very creative sons. I have always been a crafter of some sort but not any of my 3 kids are interested in that sort of thing. My son is the most like me and is very organized and every thing has a place. But is not necessarily crafty although very good at most things he does. He did do wood working in high school and I still have the pieces he made but that was it. And that was a long time ago. My daughters would rather buy stuff than make it. I wish one of them was interested in quilting. I won’t give up trying to persuade them though.


  3. Crafty and generous with the things they make – like you Mary. Love your work and the heritage you are leaving.
