It's my niece's birthday in the next few days, and she will be turning 8. Tweeny! Her Mum doesn't really like toys and prefers more practical gifts for her kids. She also loves handmade stuff, and really appreciates and values them. So. Here is what I came up with.
A journal, to jot down the high moments in life, the things that make her sad, angry, joyful. She can dream, plan and doodle her thoughts down.
