This is what my babysitter does

I have an amazing babysitter, Andrea (and no, you may not have her phone number). Last year she watched my girls every Wednesday for four hours so I could go to Bible study and work out at Curves. She still watches them in the evenings about once a week so Eric and I can go out on a date. She is a beautiful artist, although she'd never admit to that. She does crafts with my girls every time she's with them, and makes things from scratch such as paper dolls--yes, she draws the dolls, cuts them out and makes dresses and teeny-tiny accessories for them. She once made a chest of drawers where the drawer actually opens--all from paper. She also makes jewelry with the girls from pieces of scrap paper I leave them. Here's some photos of her work.
