Today I want to share Ashley's birthday present with you. My dear Ash turned 11 last month. [I take care of Ashley and her brother. I've been their nanny for almost 2 years.] Ashley wanted the Taylor Swift cd. We're both obsessed with love Taylor. And I took my first swing at making a plush deer to match the cd I was giving her.

 I decided she needed another accent color so I made her a fabulous twine and rose headband.

Ashley named her "Deary."

I think Deary is gorgeous. And such a great result for my first ever attempt at making one! It's amazing, the things you can learn to do with google, youtube and determination.

She opened up her present right after school, then we immediately left for a fun girls night to celebrate.

I took her to the cinema cafe to see Breaking Dawn 2.

Beforehand we played ski ball and air hockey (I kicked her butt.) And arcade style bastketball (Where she slammed me, winning with more than a 40 point lead.)

We had a lot of fun!

Time to go have a girls craft night now :) To relax, craft, and regroup. Have a lovely day!
