This is my beautiful niece, Maddie. I have been crafting with her since she was three. We took it to a whole new level this weekend when we incorporated power tools and diamond coated drill bits to create these tea stands out of old china. Here she is in action!
Here are the finished projects! Anyone want to buy a tea stand?! Here are some that are featured on Etsy.com. Mine can also hold water in the tea cup for fresh flowers!
If you are not comfortable with drilling your china, here’s another option from You Tube.
Maddie and I have been bonding by creating together since she was little. Now she’s an amazing artist, and I look forward to her visits from California to catch up with her and be amazed by what she creates. Another friend of mine takes her niece back to school shopping every year. What traditions do you have with your niece or nephew that you both look forward to? Share with us on our Facebook Fan Page #familybonding, or tweet us.
I miss her already,
