My poor kids. They are the inspiration for so much of what I do, yet they have to wait the longest to get some Fancy of their own. Take these lap desks, for instance:
I first bought them because I thought my kids would love to have a little place to sit and color or do homework anywhere in the house. Check my receipt...I bought them in September. Until tonight, I had made over a dozen of these desks for customers or to give as gifts for the girls' friends and cousins, but I had yet to Fancy them up for my own kids. Shame on me!
So finally tonight at dinner, I asked Brynn what she'd like me to draw on her blue lap desk. "A unicorn and a rainbow" was her response. A unicorn??? Should have known she'd throw a challenge my way. I feel way more pressure to produce my best work for my own kids...after all, I'm going to have to look at it every single day! If I didn't get this right, I'd be so annoyed with myself every time I looked at that desk. Thanks to Google, I found a cute image of a unicorn that I was able to replicate without so much as a single curse word. I think I nailed it for my sweet girl, and I can't wait for her to see it in the morning:
