I can do magic.
I have a special talent of seeing things that others can't see (ssshh). Well, except that I share this talent with most , if not all, moms!
Last weekend, I promised my kids I would help them fix up their newly-found summer hang-out. You see, we have a nice attic with so much potential. For a year, it served as a storage space for big boxes and two new mattresses waiting for their bed frames. One day I came home looking for my kids, when I found out they were up in the attic doing some decorating! I guess they got tired of asking me to fix it and decided to do it themselves. They did a very neat job! I promised to help them and told them we were just going to use things that we already have.
I have an old 4-tier wire rack that I thought possible to assemble in two pieces -- 2 tiers each.

The first half was a success! It fit in that little corner!
The second half, well, I had a magic moment! An idea was brewing in my head. I gathered three shawls, my wooden clothespins and my wire twist, some sheets of big paper and made this.... Ta-dah! An instant puppet theater!
|Lucky that I had two matching purple shawls, souvenirs from the Boracay wedding.|
Meet my production team ...
The script writer...
The lighting manager...
The puppeteer (see the hand :))...
I promised to make them a 'set design'. Soo excited for the coming weekend..
When they got tired of the theater, I made it into this...
|I used bulldog clips to attach the shawls to the ledge, keeping them in place.|
So much more ideas with that wire rack. My next idea is to turn it into a big dollhouse, or maybe a grocery kiosk, a bank teller counter, or wait, how about a a movie ticket seller's window? Haha. Mommy's all excited!
I would also be sharing with you our attic transformation. This is just a sneak peek of that little corner... :)
Summer is going to be fun! I can feel it already... :)
