Family Introductions: The Cottontail Family

Cottontail Family

Father Christopher is Crabapple Crossings’ town toymaker and he is an ace at knowing what the children of the town want to play with. He spends lots of time reviewing current tastes and trends in toys and even more time engineering and building them! He loves seeing the children’s happy faces when they play with the items he’s created. When not hard at work in his toy shop, he spends his free time growing bonsai, metal detecting, and coin collecting.

Mother Carla can tell you anything you want to know about teas – she owns the local tea room and shop. Right now, her favorite blend is a vanilla bean earl grey finished with a splash of milk. She is very passionate about her cozy shop and is always dreaming up new tea blends or dainty treats to serve. She also enjoys gardening, making quilts, and reading mystery novels.

Brother Connor loves spending time in the workshop with his father. He loves figuring out how things work and coming up with creative solutions to problems. Connor loves to work with his Dad on developing new toys. And since he has shown he can be responsible, he’s even allowed to use some of the tools on his own. His favorite subject in school is science and he wants to be an engineer when he grows up.

Sister Camille is a bit of a free spirit. She loves playing make believe and going on imaginary adventures. She enjoys coming up with fun stories to play with her friends. In the woods, she’s a fairy princess; on the beach, a mermaid. Her parents try to support her active imagination, as long as she isn’t doing anything dangerous. She also loves to draw, make dolls out of her mother’s scraps of fabric, and go ice skating in the wintertime.

Crabapple Crossings Update

Crabapple Crossings is not gone! I truly can’t believe five (!) months have gone by without a single post. In December my husband and I bought a house, so amidst packing, moving, unpacking, and home improvements, Crabapple Crossings has not been a priority. But I have missed the village so much! Making tiny cute things and writing about them is such a fun and creative process for me. I now realize that some of my wintertime funk can probably be attributed to a lack of creative endeavors. I hope that I can find my inspiration again. I’ll probably ease back in with a few family introduction posts – not the most exciting, but I have to actually make things in order to share them with you!
