Posted by Maggie May Labels: 101 Ways To Smile #1 build a blanket fort city
Last night we started building a fort in Lola's play area. So far it's looking good! I found a wonderful set of instructions here on Apartment Therapy, and am trying to figure out how to hang lights inside. Once we get finished I'll take a picture and report back. If you build one in your house, take a picture and do a post and let me know!
Lola inspired this on Friday nite. She had been pretty sick with the stomach flu, and was recovering. Laying on the floor, surrounded with blankets and art supplies, she began drawing beautiful images, and said to me I'm going to cheer myself up by making beautiful things. I perked up. Damn skippy. If my 9 year old can do it, so can I!
