That's awsome Smiley I'm glad you were able to make her EXACTLY what she wanted. I'm sure she'll love wearing it Smiley.

Stop being so damned positive. Staring at the sun only blinds some one. By only looking at the positive, you miss an entire beautiful world of shadows and colors. Don't be overly negative, be realistic. The world is so much more complex and beautiful that way.

Well, I think you did a marvelous job of interpreting, especially since your niece looks THRILLED to be donning it! I dress fit for a princess? Yes. It reminds me of the ever-so-lovely Snow White gown. I knew RIGHT away that those whispy (SP?), green, fluffy bits were feathers. I had rather imagined a peacock :O) I think you need to continue working with your little niece. The teamwork seems to do magic things for you both (smiles). You remind me of all the things my own Mum, Nana, Granddad, Uncle and Cousin(s) created within me whilst we grew up. Creativity is boundless but the endless connections we create are even more than that :O)

I love the feathers too, but can see why they might need to be optional!
