just a little project d. & I worked on, as a birthday gift for the little one who is turning Five.
I told him my idea, he turned some old boxes into the frame. and then I covered it in pretty things.
a little theater for a little girl who likes to make up stories and act them out with her dolls & animals.
mi'nina curiously checked it out before I packed it up.
I had a few moments of imagining how I would have played with it myself.
I made her a few skirts as well. some bright prints with ribbon edges.
and my brother video-ed the opening of the gifts, which was a big present for me. to see my little ones. and to see the sweet one smile & kiss her new little theater. there has been sadness for me, in missing this birthday with her, much like many things I'm missing with the kids. but the video helped me feel better, I didn't have to miss her smile as she opened her gifts.
