X-ray week for Lily

Lily’s having a growth spurt so her doc did a bone age x-ray last Wednesday (normal)

Then she slammed her hand in the basement door on Saturday and today we had to x-ray the same hand again! Weird, right?! She doesn’t have any obvious fractures but needs to wear the splint just in case.

Broken mirror art

Our trip to PEI inspired me to finish a project. This cracked mirror has been waiting for reincarnation. Using clear epoxy and some stones, sea glass, and shells from PEI and the North Shore, we stabilized the glass and made it pretty enough for the patio. It’s a nice way to use our beach treasures, too!

DIY Ron Weasley

We were inspired by one of Ron’s biggest fans (our friend, Sophia) to transform a gently used 18 inch doll into a gift that any HP loving kid could appreciate! It was a really fun challenge- starting with a red-haired doll from eBay, we began by cutting her hair and eyelashes, removing her painted lips and adding freckles and eyebrows. With a knitted Weasley sweater and some wizarding accessories, the transformation was complete- almost magic!
