From the H.E.A.R.T.

I love it when the kids create something from their heart to give as gifts. This year Alysee drew Chloe's name for Christmas. She was so excited to finally pick a gift out for a girl. We went to the Dollar Store together to look at ideas. Alysee had remembered this super cute purse that she was just positive Chloe would love. It was no where to be found. I suggested that we sew a purse for Chloe. Alysee was delighted with this idea!
For Alysee's last birthday my parents gave her a sewing box filled with treasures. Unfortunately her mom isn't so hot about sewing and so her box hasn't gotten much use. Alysee (with a little help from her momma and Aunti Emi) turned in a hot pink $1 place mat into the cutest little girl's purse decorated with ribbon and a homemade felt flower.
Chloe LOVES her new purse. It goes with her everyone; as does her new pink princess umbrella from Santa.

Isn't she dang cute even when doing the potty dance??!!!
