The last weekend in February my niece Lucy, age 13, came over for some arty adventure and fun. I picked her up from school on Friday and she did not get home until Saturday after 6:00 p.m. Most of that time was spent painting, finishing our journals and working on a special project Lucy created all on her own. We also shopped, ate out a ton and went on a hunt for a perfect journal pen for Lucy's new journal. We also watched a movie, "Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging" loosely based on a book series of the same name (it was good but different somewhat from the books according to Lucy).
I usually don't have my nieces and nephews spend the night at my house. All I have to sleep on is a tiny overstuffed loveseat. Of course everyone of them swears they can sleep on it just fine all curled up in a ball but in the morning they are all stretched out and hanging over the edges. Lucy's mom was going to pick her up Saturday morning but Lucy pretended to still be sleeping so she could stick around and finish her special project.
Here is Lucy's special project:
