I Will Not Rain
Gail Boenning

Love this, Gail — as a mom/stepmom of 4 ranging from 7–20, we often create together… I used to struggle with my now 7 year old stepson and 10 year old stepdaughter because their mom isn’t a person who really supports creativity. It has been only within the last year or so that they have “gotten it.” My 16 & 20 year olds, on the other hand, know that they’ve got free reign to create — in fact, my 20 year old knew that she was “grown up” when I let her choose ANY of my craft supplies/fabric, etc., when she wanted to create, not just the “kids’ stuff.” Of course, it was a few years ago, but I’d like to think that that’s part of the reason that she’s pursuing a degree in costume design.
