See that sweet baby? She turned 16 today.
She is my fabulous niece, and she drew that picture from a favorite photo taken of us in 1997. She gave it to me for my birthday last year and it hangs in my studio where I can see it every day.
I could go on and on about how smart-talented-beautiful-funky-cool-awesome she is, but she reads this blog and I wouldn't want it to go to her head.
She's a big Dr. Who fan, so for her birthday I made her this Tardis phone charging station (from this pattern and tutorial at Craftzine.com)
Isn't that awesome? I absolutely LOVE geek crafts.
I packed it inside this box - collaged with my hand painted papers.
She's coming to my house in Massachusetts from her house in Virginia just 10 short days from now!
I looooove being this girl's Auntie.
Happy Sweet Sixteen, Lu!
