There are 2 things you should know about me: 1) I love to craft and 2) I don't do anything halfway. So when you combine the 2, you get something like this.
When Colin's class list came home for the Valentines, there was a sheet attached with instructions for a Valentine's box. I could feel the smile form from ear to ear. I had dreamed of this day since I was about 8-years old, playing house (or school) with my Cabbage Patch dolls. I loved crafting my Valentine's boxes each year and was sad when I outgrew it. I hoped that one day I'd get to do it all over again. What I didn't bank on was creating one for a boy!
I gave Colin several choices and he ultimately decided on the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle van. I thought it would be easy enough. It was, just time consuming. I started Sunday morning and within an hour, he was asking if I was finished yet?!
Yet?! Crafting takes time! You can't rush a good thing. After 3 days, 2 trips to Michael's, I finally finished my masterpiece. For those of you not privy to all things Turtle, here's the real thing next to my replica.
