Yesterday, my daughter was talking about how her friends are starting to lose teeth. Really? Is she that old? Maybe kids are loosing them earlier these days. Anyway... she was talking about the Tooth Fairy and asked me a lot of logistical questions about how tall she was, how she got in the house, etc... Then it hit me!
I remembered the little fairy door that is upstairs in the hallway. I love these little doors, that if nothing else, cause an interesting conversation when people come over. After we went to "check it out", my daughter wanted to know if I would paint her one of her own for her room. You know, pink and green and stuff. I said SURE!
Here is the product of our labor yesterday. She is so excited about it! I am afraid she might try the whole tie a string to your tooth and a door handle trick just to lose one.
*I have made several of these for people before (complete with a bottle of fairy dust), so if you are interested, let me know. I would be happy to make you one with your custom color selection.

Liz and I are neighbors, one house apart, and we like to have back yard meetings to discuss, kids, life, and our DREAMS! She shares my passion for creativity and vibrance for life. I almost had her talked into designing and sewing her own children's clothing line, but you know, who are we to tell God what it is that we need to do?
God has BIG plans for Liz. After debriefing one afternoon about our kids and their dolls...a vision came to her. I didn't have to try hard to convince her to "take a stab at" this project, the excitement was in her voice, and I knew it would not be long before I would see a sampling of "the project".
ARE YOU READY????
HERE IT COMES....
Please join me in Welcoming...
Everyone together now... "awww, that is so cute"
Here is a personalized patch on the middle

*If you are interested in talking with Liz about having a custom doll made, please email me and I will have her get in touch with you. Hope you can support my friend in this very exciting endeavor that she has started. Don't Dilly Dolly around...order one today!

To God be the glory for all he is doing in their lives. I have never met a family who has so diligently followed Christ where he leads, and with no hesitation I might add. Here are a few pictures to document the day. WOW...what a win!
