Sandi was my 2nd oldest sibling, I am #6 of 7 children. She took care of me lots of times and when she married and was living in southern California, we younger siblings would go visit her and my oldest sister Donna and they would do all kinds of fun things with us!
One of the things that Sandi and I both liked to do was decorative painting. (You can see a video of painting a flower here!) I have many painted items that she did for me as gifts, and that I copied because she would come up with some really cute stuff! One of the things she did for me was a set of wooden blocks that went perfectly with my collection of bird houses. The blocks stacked on each other just right and said, "Love grows in little houses." I loved that saying, not only because it matches the idea of bird houses, but because I have always lived in tiny houses and I have found that saying to be true.
