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
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!


  1. Anyone who is a Dr. Who fan I am a fan of too. What a great tardis rendition but where is K-9. My fave Dr. Who was Ian Baker, but she may not remember him, he was one of the older ones. Glad she is coming for a visit. There will be major mess making in your studio and some cool fun coming from there. xox Corrine

  2. wow, she did an amazing job on that picture, and your so talented, it runs in the family, I love what you did for her birthday so clever you are

  3. What a great gift. And you two look incredibly alike! (both lovely)

  4. She can draw like that and is a Dr. Who fan?! She's perfect! Fabulous Tardis by the way! I hope my kids have as wonderful a relationship with their aunts as she has with you! Enjoy her visit!

  5. What a lovely pair you make....and what a talented duo, as well!
    It makes me hope that my relationship with my daughter is this special when she is a teen :D

    Geek crafts rule!
