And let me tell you what my sweet Danielle wanted to do with all her money. One day at school they showed the kids a video about the devastation in Haiti and the stagnate relief efforts. Seeing all the homeless children really struck a cord with Danielle. So the other night she came to me with all the money she had been saving in her piggy bank (around $40+), and she said she wanted to give it to the children in Haiti because they need it more than she does. I was so proud of her!! I praised her for her generosity and caring heart. I could see that while she was happy to be helping out those in need, she was also a little sad about giving up her entire savings. So I suggested that rather than donate all her money, she could give a small amount and Daddy and I would kick in some money to supplement the donation. That made her happy. I'm a proud mama!
Here's another little project I made for the Prima booth at CHA last summer. I bought this little evening bag for $1.00 at my local flea market. It was missing a couple rhinestones on the front, but otherwise it was in excellent condition.
Here it is after I embellished it with lovely Prima flowers, leaves, rhinestones and pearls:
Soon I'll be posting some of the projects I made for Winter CHA coming up this weekend.
