Sure enough, doesn't dd tell me she has to do a diorama type project of a stage set for her theater class. And it's due Wednesday!!! Needs to be fully furnished. I was like "BRIDGET - that's two days from now!" She, purposely ignoring my panic, says "I know, plenty of time, right?"
Well, of course we got it done and it's pretty awesome. I emailed the neighbors, they came through with dollhouse furniture. My woodgrain background stamp made it look like the cabin it was supposed to be. DD's daughter's eyes were huge when I pulled out one tool after another....

I feel all my purchases are totally justified now.

Plus we had a blast doing it. I hope I remember that night forever.
Awesome! Love this story! Love her name, too. One of my best friends is named Bridget!
