Crafty or Crazy?

What do you do when you are on a slow evening stroll through your neighborhood, just enjoying the warm breeze and you come upon a BIG box someone is throwing out. Do you a) keep walking and think nothing of it? b) think that it could make something fun for your kid but you really don't want the work of doing it? c) decide what's a little work to make your kid so happy and why pass it up when it's free?

Well I chose c) tonight when I saw this great BIG box and immediately thought of how cute it would be to make this. I know I'm a little crazy in the head for wanting to spend an hour doing this at the end of a long day. But when all I can think about is how my little girl will love it and the fun we will have playing in it I can't help myself. What's a couple of rolls of wrapping paper and a little creativity gonna cost me anyway. I will tell you. Nothing compared to the joy on that little girl's face when she wakes up tomorrow and sees this!! Can you believe the little tray in the window was in the box too?!! How cute!

Now I just have to be ready to play the customer all day looooooooong. :) Still it's a joy!

Happy play shopping everyone!
