Lisa E, a lovely Ambleside Online mom, brought to the AO/CM Conference a set of clay figures for each of the Advisory members, made by her very talented daughter. Each of us received a representation of our own family -- I don't know how Lisa figured out what we all looked like before she even met us, but she did a wonderful job of putting clues together!
Lisa took the inspiration for the figures for my family from a blog entry here at the Beehive: my poem Braided.
You can see Wendi's gift here, Donna-Jean's here, and Leslie Noelani's here.
Thank you, Lisa! And please pass along a big thank you hug to the very sweet and gifted Miss Ector!
