Dressing up box
It's Isobel's 4th birthday tomorrow, and her present from me is a decorated dressing up box. I asked her what she wanted painted on it, and she had to choose the one thing I can't paint. Fairies! Any kind of humanoid shape is a complete mystery to my artistic hand. Horses, wild animals, even fish would've been fine, just not anything with hands, feet or faces. It's taken me all week to finish, but I've glazed it tonight and it's now ready to fill with her clothes and be wrapped up. She has a Tinkerbell costume, a pirate, a ballerina, Stephanie from Lazytown, and finally a doctors outfit.
