Thanks to Pinterest, I learned that you can draw on an inexpensive plate with Sharpie and make it a masterpiece! Since Mel and Jess are budding artists I thought this would be a good creative outlet-inexpensive and fun! At the store, they each took their time weighing the pro's and con's of each style of plate and bowl. Mel settled on a salad size square plate and Jess a rectangle dish slightly longer than an ear of corn.
Ted and I are truly crazy blessed for each one of our girls has an amazing and caring heart but Jessica-- that kid is something else! She feels things on a different level than the rest of us-she is like a little mother, always jumping up to help someone. When one of us is sick, Jess is at the ready with an extra blanket, grabbing another box of tissues or getting your favorite pillow fluffed just right. I should have known that I was in for something that would tug at my heart when Jess went to work on just a simple elephant.
First there was the simple outline in black of the kind of elephant that can only be drawn by a true seven year old lover of elephants.
