When Drama Princess was just ten and a half, I gave her a stack of cloth napkins and asked her to personalize them. My thinking was it would make it easier to differentiate between them, enabling us to use them for several meals. Little did I know that she would create such tiny, lovely flowers! Suddenly my everyday napkins were cherished works of art. 🙂 She had almost no training or instruction in any type of needlework. Just lovely!
When Drama Princess was ten, she started to show interest in cake decorating. She wanted to thoroughly explore it. A friend kindly came and gave her a lengthy lesson in our living room. At the age of eleven, she created this fun cake for a friend’s sixth birthday. It was her idea and she did it all herself!
It was almost too cute to eat.
Ephraim created a stunning checker board, using small tiles from a home improvement store. He attached them to the wooden base, framed it and added protective feet. The children were able to help too! It is sturdy and beautiful. For the checkers, he made small slices of wood, sanded them and painted them coordinating colors.
