Can a single person do anything to change the entire world? I didn’t use to think so. Then I became a mom.
Let there be peace on Earth, and let it begin with me
To help me remember to bring empathy and compassion into my home this holiday season, I painted these decorative stones.
I have mine sitting next to my kitchen sink as a reminder to choose peace throughout the holiday season.
Cassie Nowacki left her professional career to raise her two bright, busy little boys. Inspired to make toys and paintings for her kids, she discovered that she was an artist at heart. She is married to an amazing and equally creative husband who helps out in her Etsy shop as well.
About my shop: When I was pregnant with my youngest son I decided I wanted to make gifts for my kids that could double as keepsakes. I felt like I was wasting money on gifts that would be cast aside too soon. I started with some canvas paintings as nursery decor for the new baby, a set of hand painted story stones for my oldest, rainbow light blocks for them to explore building, color, and light, and a set of keepsake wooden blocks for my youngest’s first birthday with a picture from each of his first twelve months on the blocks. It took others to point it out, but I had become an artist. My Etsy shop is an extension of my personal endeavor to give meaningful gifts to my kids and to keep the artist in me alive. It has allowed me to share these items with others so that they may give and receive these keepsakes.
