We love Origami and Magical spirit loves paper craft so, perfect! She also like dragon flies,
And we thought she might like a dragon who flies, if you throw him. Throwing not recommended.
And a tiny tulip in a pot of Alabama red dirt.
And a pair of butterfly earrings
And a necklace to match
And some tiny books,
And an origami book mark,
And a snail, who is translucent and very cool to fold,
And a lily pad with a tiny frog, which are both very tricky to fold, K had to help me with the lily pad.
And she likes beads, so a beaded dragon fly.
And a small gazing ball for her favorite plant
We also sent her a bar of soap, handmade by a lady we volunteer with at Burritt Museum, from milk from her goat named Scout. It was Apple Jack and we thought it smelled wonderful. K wrapped it in some paper she hand dyed. (She is big into watercolors at the moment.) K also shared some of her favorite things in the world, tiny erasers.
And a necklace to keep something she loves close to her heart.
And last but not least, a ton of Puffles, because Magicalspirit is a fan of Club Penguin, some beads in our favorite tiny bottles, stickers, a glow in the dark bouncy ball, an eyeball ping pong ball, craft foam snowflakes, sequins, some cute note paper in a orental sho box, an oriental purse and a bunch more little stuff.
We hope she liked it!

Thank you Caitirin! One of K's all time favorite things is tiny erasers, so you definitely made her day. My personal favorites are the beads and clasps, I dibbsed those already. We both love the wooden two layer dragonfly, frog, lady bug and butterfly. They are so cute and they're stickers!
Thanks you again Caitirin! We loved it all!

Though I have to admit, watching K walking around without her glasses is much more frightening. Luckily the dive coach is in the same boat and is keeping an eye out for her.

The VBS we are doing this year is Crocodile Dock and these are Bible Buddie trading cards. You print the front and back on a sheet of cards stock, cut out 9 cards and each child gets one at then end of the day to take home. They're a big hit with the kids and very inexpensive. The first two years I designed, printed, cut and cornerounded 600+ of them. I was hallucinating by the end. This year, I only did the design part, a bunch of teenagers are going to do the printing and cutting. Love those youth volunteers.
If you could use them, I've made one set for each day and uploaded them to my flicker account. Please leave me a comment if you use them, comments make me glad. :)

They made Mr. Man and I one as well.
Unfortunately, K spent the rest of the weekend coughing her head off, poor kiddo. Her temp is down, but she is still uber snotty and coughed most of the night. I would have let her sleep and kept her home, but she really wanted to go. You can't miss the last day!
Summer here we come!
