Have you seen Coraline yet? I have to admit that I haven't, but I really want to. Maybe tomorrow afternoon. Althea Crome is the bright mind behind that cute little grey star spangled sweater that Coraline wears. She knitted it by hand! Can you imagine? With sewing needles no less. Takes the idea of extreme sports to a whole new level of insanity. Or genius.
Althea's imagination, attention to detail and dedication to her vision are traits we could all stand to embrace, bring into focus and incorporate into our own traditions. At least I know I could.
