Scrap Paper and Gemstones

To update on the Tinkerbell thing:

Rachel and I spent a very fun hour yesterday afternoon creating (longer) skirts for a few of the Tinkerbells we put up, and thick shoulder straps to cover the cleaveage of the others. Three of them are lining the trash can instead of the walls, but we were able to use 5 on her walls, with some minor embellishments. We even bought a little jewel-making kit for $1.00 at Wal-Mart and after they dry, we will use the little gemstones we made to make the Tinks look "even prettier" in Rachel's words!

Even if I am being a little insane with all this, at the very least it was a fun way to spend part of an afternoon with my daughter . . . .

Ha ha! Whatever her flaws, at least Tinkerbell has the decency to wear shoes in her pictures! *sigh of relief*

Way to satisfy your gut instinct and also make a fun, creative memory with your daughter! If Rachel is anything like Anna...she would have greatly PREFERRED to embellish! Anything crafty and sparkly is right up her alley! I would have probably had to hold Anna back from putting gemstones all over the wall! ;)
