Making it Happen

This morning, Staley and I attended an hour "meet-and-play" morning at her preschool (before she officially starts tomorrow.)

Staley and cousin Lila in their new classroom

Since Grammie and Grandpa were watching Adelie, I told Staley that after her meet-and-play morning, we could go do something special.  Initially we were going to paint pottery...until we drove over there to find out that they are closed on Mondays.  Bummer!!  Not to be deterred, Staley then decided that she would like to go to Hobby Lobby to get some supplies for her butterfly queen costume that she has been talking about making for literally months now (as mentioned in this previous post.)  So we went to Hobby Lobby and I told Staley she could pick out 4 supplies that she needed to make her costume.  Then we came home and with a little cutting, a little tying, and a few stitches, we made THIS...

Staley's "supplies" that she picked out included purple sequinned material, silver sequinned material, rainbow colored feathers, and a black lacy broach with rhinestones.

I'm not sure we're going to go into business, but Staley seemed pleased with the outcome.  
And I'm just proud that we could finally make this happen...even if this concoction of sequins and feathers is what we made happen.  :)
