I'm always impressed when my kids do something that I used to do as a child, but they improve upon my basic idea. Especially when I've never even shared that basic idea.
I used to love to set out my outfit, especially (and maybe only, if I'm honest) if the clothes were new. Oooh. . . to plan what I was going to wear the next day, and imagine how beautiful I would look. It was so much fun.
I recently participated in a swap with a darling friend who lives in Maryland. I made her girls some dresses (and then sent them to the wrong address--Sorry, Amy, I'll make some more!), and she made my girls the cutest skirts and legwarmers.
The clothes are seriously loved.
But what are clothes without faces and hair?Yes, much better.
The best part for me was the discussion and giggling that accompanied the project. Gotta love those girls.
