My Favorite Thing...

...Shrinky Dinks!

Maddy introduced Grace, Jack, and I to Shrinky Dinks this week during her lovely visit with us. Grace and Jack had a great time drawing on the plastic Shrinky Dink sheets. After their drawings were completed we put the sheets into the oven. We watched the drawings magically shrink to 1/3rd of their original size.
Grace drew adorable pictures of people and Jack made beautiful drawings using a black marker. We punched a hole in Grace and Jack's drawings in order to make them into necklace pendants. I put Grace and Jack's pendants together on a necklace and it is something that I will wear everyday. I will post pictures of it soon - it is something that I will always treasure. Maddy made a special pendant for Grace to wear, which is pictured above. Maddy and I had the best time with this project too!!! Thank you so much, Maddy, for introducing us to such a fun idea. More pictures of our fun time with Maddy coming soon....

Grace you look so beautiful wearing the necklace. Didn't we have the best time together making charms for necklaces and magnets? I am wearing the ones you and Jack made for me, too. I treasure them. I'll take a picture so you can see them on me.

I love, love, love doing projects with Jack and Grace. The time together, sitting, talking, planning, and creating is just what being a Maddy is all about to me. These are the best-of-times. Making sweet memories.
Love, Maddy

PS...those eyelashes!!!!!!

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
