I Feel Like I Should Get Some Kind of 'Awesome Mom' Award

William's 3rd birthday is next Thursday. And this kid is OBSESSED with doing whatever his Daddy does. Especially if it has to do with photography. Will pretends everything is a camera -- bananas, toy cars, my wallet, a book, the fireplace tools -- and he's forever headed to a photo shoot or showing us the latest photos he's taken.

While in Iceland, I had a burst of inspiration to make him a play version of Daddy's camera -- and I could envision just how to make it. This week I found all the right pieces and today I put it all together. I am so so pleased with how it turned out!



The supplies I used were a chip board box and canisters from JoAnn, black paint, white paint pen, masking tape, black fabric, wood glue (praying it holds), red piping and an old shoelace.



I think William will be one estatic 3 year old in a few days. :) BlogBooster-The most productive way for mobile blogging. BlogBooster is a multi-service blog editor for iPhone, Android, WebOs and your desktop

Wow, you did a great job! And what a perfect gift for Will. He is going to LOVE it (and you better be prepared to have it go everywhere from now on).

PS. You might have to teach me how you did that. Bean is running around with various objects saying "smile" and "take a picture" :)
