Ella and Clara Klein - Sandi’s Granddaughters

Meeting and getting to know so many creative women got me to thinking: why not start a bit younger - really younger? And so… I reached out to a pair of creative girls who I know very well: Ella and Clara Klein, my 7-1/2 and 5-1/2 year old granddaughters! Creativity is second nature to these two. They love to paint, draw, work with clay, make their own pinatas, read, write their own stories and plays, and work on special projects with their very creative parents. So join me for CWCW's first ever conversation with the 'younger set.'
