Well my adorable "other" granddaughter turned ten and since she is not a girly girl I have to be very simple and plain in gifting her....so, I made her a journal/diary. She will decide what it is and how to use it. She loves the color blue so I did this with some great paper from a scrap pad that DD gave me. It's Colorbok and it has co-ordinating papers. The colors all match but I have some flowers along with strips. Simple to just cut and paste and put a wee "M" for Madison on the note pad. The big paper clip can keep track of where she has last writen. I used to babysit her from the time she was about 1 year old but I had to give it up when the family went from 1 to 3. This old broad can't race after kids like I used to. This darling girl's nickname is Birdie and that's what I will always call her, although she now is professionally known as Madison. We have a date for an after school outing on Friday and I have some money in a card that I know she will have fun spending.
In case you haven't noticed, I have now received 3490 Valentines in the drive for 1000. I have taken the liberty to call our local hospital's children's cancer center and they will happily take some of the extras. Hope that is Ok with everyone. I figure it still is Cards 4 Kids and they are all sick children so why not share the gold.
