I can’t wait…

… ‘til my 5-year-old daughter gets home today. Why?

DSCF4649 Because she’s got mail!

On May 3rd I received notification from Fashion Cents Mom that I had won a $25 gift card to FashionPlaytes.com:
“Where girls are fashion designers.” It took several weeks before I remembered I had won when Amareah (my 5 year old) was at home and we sat down together so she could design her item.

I’ve been waiting with bated breath for it to arrive ever since then and it finally has. And, of course, Amareah isn’t here. She won’t be home until almost 7 o’clock after her big sister Amber picks up her younger siblings from daycare.

I just keep staring at the package ‘cause I want to open it with her. You know, the big reveal. I’m sure she’ll want to try it on right away or at least wear it tomorrow so there will be another post about it soon. (I must admit I’m a little apprehensive about her design choices, but excited that it truly represents her.)

If you haven’t checked out FashionPlaytes then you should. It’s the perfect site for budding fashion designers or little girls who just like to be creative with their style. I enjoyed spending time with Amareah designing her dress and look forward to doing another one with her. I also look forward to doing one with Anna, 3, when she gets a little older.

Stay tuned for the design…
