My great niece, who is in her tweens, was visiting last weekend. When I showed her my recent projects....
and "wip" (for the pinkettes!)
She was thrilled and wanted to make one too. She picked out her ribbon and I wrapped the styro heart for her; showed her how to use the low temp glue gun and gave her a tray of supplies. (did you see that tween's mommy...I said LOW temp glue gun!)
She worked on it during her down time on Saturday and this is how I found her Sunday morning....
me: Whatcha up to my little tween-heart?
her: I'm working on my project, trying to finish it before I go home. I don't think I can finish it though *sighing* after she smiled for the camera ha!
me: How much more is there left to do?
her: Well, I've got all of the front done.....
....and I've started on the back, but the inside still needs to be done.
me: Wow, you've got quite a bit done. It is looking so beautiful!
her: yes, I know, but I what am I going to do? I can't finish it since I have to leave soon; and, I can't finish it at home because my mom won't like me using the glue gun with my little brothers getting into everything.
me: no worries darling. Tell you what, you come pose with what you have so far, and I'll finish it for you.
me: hold it up so everyone can see how beautifully it is coming along. Give a sweet smile for all the wonderful bloggers!
her: Will they really look at my project.
me: Yes indeed.
her: how will you know?
me: because when they have time, they will leave a comment.
her: really?! Can I see their comments?!
me: I'll let your mommy know when I post this and she can pull it up on the computer. May not be until next week.
her (jumping and *squeeling*): Woohoo! I can't wait! I hope they think it is beautiful!
her: don't forget to take pictures so everyone can see it finished, ok!?
me: I promise! Now go get ready.
She's such a darling! She is every bit her mommie; beautiful, sweet, bright, mischievious, caring...she makes my heart smile, just as her mommy does!
As promised, here is her finished rhinestone heart.
Maybe on her next visit I'll show her how to mosaic a birdhouse or strip and paint a table ha! (just kidding tween-heart's mommy!! lol!)
Thank you in advance to those of you who took a moment to leave a comment for my darling tween-heart!
Have a lovely pinkie weekend!
