Little Chick's Surprise

"The delight in giving and receiving surprises fills one's heart with the utmost joy!" ~Mama Hen
Ever since I saw the movie The Holiday, I have dreamed of making a beautiful tent for my baby girl. I found some delicate yet fancy curtain panels that I wanted to make this tent out of. I bought a large hoola hoop and opened it to add the curtain panels. Grandma Hen gave me some gorgeous pearl stands to decorate and to hang it to the beam in our family room. I had fun decorating the top so that Little Chick can look up and see some sparkling shimmer from above. The best part was waking up Little Chick at midnight and carrying her down to see her great big surprise right as Grandma Hen and I had just finished sewing and putting it all together. Her eyes were filled with such joy and happiness as she said, "Mommy, this is for me!" She went in and saw all of her little animals waiting. It was a really spectacular surprise for all!
Lots of fun art!

  5. What a sweet and thoughtful surprise! Little Chick must feel like a little princess in her beautiful tent. (I've got some Friday afternoons free in Sept. Would that be a good time to meet?)XO.
