  1. I wasn't sure what Maddie would want to use... would she like sequins and ball gowns? Feathers for hats? So I got out a few different things.

  2. I was a little afraid that she's be stuck in the beginning... not knowing at all what to do, or how to even start.

  3. That was not the case! Right away, she had ideas, and knew how she wanted to implement them. "I really like this project!" she said. I really liked seeing her ingenuity and problem-solving skills come forth!

  4. So I just sat across from her, admired her creations and held things while glue dried, when she wanted me to.

  5. Soon she had a whole collection...

  6. and they're beautiful, indeed!
