For Christmas, Harley and Reagan each made their gifts to the rest of our family. Reagan made hand-blown glass ornaments, and Harley painted each of us a ceramic piece. She made a vase for me, a jewelry dish for Emma, and a cute little blonde fairy for Reagan. She didn’t have time before Christmas to finish her own fairy, so the two of us have had a date night each of the two past weeks so she could paint her own fairy. When she first started, I wasn’t positive what the outcome would be, but last night she finished her project, and she did a fantastic job! Billie at the ceramic shop (Holidaze in La Grande) taught her dry-brushing techniques and other highlighting techniques to help her fairy look more life-like, and she has been fantastic teaching Harley the whole porcelain ceramic process.
I am so proud of this girl!
