Years ago, a little experiment changed my world. I grew up with toys made by strangers, toys that I bought, toys that I opened. My own little girl was a baby and I wondered, could I make her a toy? I used wooden peg people from the local craft store and scraps of felt. A few stitches and a little glue later . . . And my daughter had her own set of seasonal gnomes, made by her own mom. I kept them on a shelf until she decided playing with toys was more fun than eating them. Now those gnomes are tokens for game boards that she draws herself, and pocket-friends, and family for little garden-houses that she builds out of sticks...
