Seven years old is an interesting age for gifting. I can tell Stella holds on to things from when she was smaller in an almost nostalgic way already, things that she's probably outgrown. She is still always game for cooking in her play kitchen, which to be honest is so well stocked that I am almost always game to play in it with her. It's hard for me to differentiate what age I started being able to use certain things when I was little. Is seven too young to make a potholder on a loom? Is seven too old to invest in any more fake food? I guess I'll find out Friday.
One of the only pastries not in her kitchen yet, French macarons!
Four super-sweet crocheted Barbie outfits, each with a matching accessory. LOVE these! I found them on Etsy.
She is going to LOVE this book! The whole family saw this movie in the theater during the Studio Ghibli Animation Film Festival last month. This particular film has some very Lebbeus Woods moments in it, which
David and I both appreciate as we are fans of both Hayao Miyazaki and Woods.
I think she'll be able to figure this thing out. If not, I'll use it!
Stella asked for a stapler, but probably forgot about it which makes it even better.
Sorely needed shoes and a bracelet we picked out together at a gallery of Mexican art
called Polanco after we saw a play together last weekend. That memory deserves a "❤".
Not for Stella, for her doll. I found a tutorial online on how to pierce the doll's ears with a drill, and I am eager to give it a try. I almost think the kids shouldn't watch me do it. It'll probably be pretty disturbing!
I had just enough flowers left over from my crepe paper flower DIY last week to decorate all of her packages. Bonus! I added some greenery and they look really beautiful.
