DP Weekly Photo Challenge: Transformation

What is a Sweet Mama to do when her grandgirl loses a tooth? Transform scraps into a toothfairy pillow!

I decided against a back pocket and went with a mouth pocket instead!

The scraps of material are taking form. But the toothfairy needs a skirt.

Some old buttons make great eyes!

A pretty skirt deserves a beautiful ribbon to tie it off!

My grandgirl called me on a Sunday night to tell me about her first loose tooth. She showed me on FaceTime how wiggly it was. She was excited and scared. I looked through my bag of scraps and ribbons and buttons while we were still on the phone. She inquisitively asked, “Sweet? What are you doing?” “Oh just about to put together a little somethin’ somethin’.”

Coins and teeth fit snuggly in the mouth pocket!

I delivered it on Monday and her tooth came out on Tuesday! Transforming ordinary things into precious heirlooms! This is the only way I know how to make memories that will last.

I have many titles and many names. They all genuinely represent aspects of my character, public, and private self. My life's work has consisted of legal and accounting services. My heart's passion is teaching college students how to critically think in order to navigate a world with too many options. This platform is for my creative self. I have been writing stories since I could hold a pencil. My personal philosophies and beliefs have evolved into isms that I live by. I was also a photographer for many, many years. I mainly did portraits, but I do not enjoy it anymore. Now I love to color! All the "artwork" are my digital coloring book creations. Be true. Be authentic. Live your philosophies. I am Fuzz.
