madeira was invited to a “big girl” birthday party, so being that we are mainly in the “little girl” party circle, we were not sure what to get. . .the theme of the party is arts & crafts, so we thought it would be fun to go to the craft store and pick out some little trinkets that can be used to make cards, collages, maybe even a little wall art. it was super cute to see madeira run around to pick the items that she wanted to give, she got into it big time. she is definitely a shopper (wherever did she pick that up?) we got little ribbons ($1 bin), stickers, mini pom poms, decorative brads, glitter beads, googlie eyes, colored mini shells, flowers, buttons and other little trinkets. picked up a pail, some fun ribbon and a sticker and voila, we had made our first crafty kit. we hope she likes it!
