I made these charms last night with Lydia instead of dealing with my epic to-do list. Sadie and I leave for Japan tomorrow for 2 weeks and writing down the schedule for the other two girls— carpools, rehearsals, gymnastics, and then trying to get food in the house before we go, is daunting. Oh, and pack for Japan. It's a whole lot.
So, a charm break was sorely needed and I am so happy I just chilled out for an hour to make these. The bat was inspired by a you tube video and the others I just made on the fly.
I had an unexpected costume deadline that I have been working on too, so my brain is a buzzy. I'm looking forward to just sitting on a plane for 10 hours with my eldest daughter and two good friends— I can't even wrap my brain around the whole "Japan" part until we get there.
I will be posting photos during the trip on Instagram. Sadie and I have already talked about documenting this trip for her album, she's going to mix it up with journaling, voice-to-text dictation, photos, drawing, and video. I always do a voice-to-text at the end of each day when I travel and then dump that text into a photo album. It's so wonderful for getting in all the details that are so easy to forget, especially when I make an album months after the trip.
