Looking for Something Cute

Recommended Posts

August 2024

 

It was the end of the summer break and Ashley had almost forgotten to do one important thing that she had been meaning to do all summer. She had been meaning to stop by the arts and crafts building, take a look around and find something cute for both of her daughters. She wasn't sure what she would get them yet but she was sure that she would know when she saw it. Maddie was with a group of friends again and she knew that Fee would be spending her time in the petting zoo, so she wasn't all that worried about them. Simone was still working on her campaign, so Ashley had the day to herself. The faire had been pretty awesome so far, so she was sure that the rest of the summer would be just as good.

Maddie was having fun petting the cute adorable animals but she wondered what her mother was doing. She snuck away from her friends but told her friends that she would be right back in a few minutes. She didn't want her mother to know that she snuck away from her friends so she quietly and slowly walked into the shop. She got so excited about all of the items that were in the craft shop and she thought of all of the projects that she could do. She thought that maybe she could convince her mother to do a project with her so that they could bond together before she had to go back to Hogwarts.

Ashley had just picked up an adorable pair of earrings that she thought might be good for Felicity, when she felt an familiar presence walk into the building. She asked the person running the stand how much they were selling them for and since it seemed like a reasonable price to her, Ashley paid for the earrings and thanked them before she put the jewelry in her bag and turned to walk away. "Young lady," she chuckled lightly when she saw her older daughter looking at some craft supplies. She wasn't mad that Maddie had decided to wander around alone, she knew that she was a bright witch and could protect herself if she needed to.

Maddie seemed to recognize the voice but she was paying too much attention to all of the craft supplies that were in the store so she slightly jump when she heard the sound of the voice "mother I can explain really the truth is I wandered away from my friends to look for supplies for a craft project that we can work on together before you get busy with work and I get busy with my studies during the fall term." She really just wanted to bond with her mother before school started and she was sure that her friends would understand. "I understand that I am probably in trouble with you mother and I fully accept the consequences for sneaking off like that." She knew that she would have to apologize to her friends and eventually she was going to apologize to her friends. She was unsure of what her mother was thinking at the moment so she gave her mother a warm smile.

Ashley raised an eyebrow as she listened to her daughter as she started to explain why she had walked away from her friends. She shook her head softly and chuckled lightly. "Honey, Maddie, it's alright." Her daughter was almost an adult after all, she couldn't keep treating her like she was a little kid anymore. Ashley smiled when she heard Madeleine say that she had been looking for supplies so they could work on a project together. "What a wonderful idea! I was beginning to worry that you were in that "I'm too cool to hang out with my mom" phase," she teased her slightly. Ashley walked up to the table to look at the supplies that her daughter had been looking at. "What were you thinking about making?"

"I was thinking that we could make a scrapbook where we could document all of the fun times that we spend together and all of the adventures that we go on." Maddie had a feeling that it was an old fashioned idea since she didn't think anyone made or looked through scrapbooks anymore. She wondered what her mother thought of her idea. She had another idea but she wanted to surprise her mother. Even though she was almost an adult she didn't want to stop being so sentimental or stop spending time with her mother. She cherished the times that she did spend with her mother.

Ashley smiled at Maddie's idea of making a scrapbook. "I love that idea," she replied. She wondered if she wanted to make the book just the two of them, or if Fee would be able to help them. She was sure that Maddie would mention her sister if she wanted it to be a family affair. "I have all of our family photos in my office," she told Maddie. "I suppose all we need is a book and some scrapbook supplies."

"I'm sure we could find a book and some lovely colored paper or paper with different patterns. We should definitely get some cute stickers and other supplies to make it a fabulous scrapbook." Maddie had quite a few ideas on how she wanted to decorate each page of the scrapbook with their family photos. She loved being creative and hoped that maybe once she graduates she could do something creative. She did have a few options as a backup plan. She was eventually going to have a better idea on what she wanted to do after she graduates but it wasn't her main focus at the moment.

Ashley was really looking forward to making this scrapbook with her daughter now. It would be a nice way to look back on all of their memories together. All of the trips they had gone on together as a family, all of the fun things that they had done when Maddie was a little kid. "Let's start looking then," she grinned at her daughter. Ashley looked back down at the table they were standing next to and started to look for anything that would be cute in a scrapbook.

Maddie wanted to show her mother the stickers and the paper with different patterns on it that caught her attention. "Mom I found some cute stickers and some fun paper with all types of different patterns on it. What do you think? Do you think we can use any of this when we make our scrapbook?" She looked around to see what other supplies they could use. She found some glitter and colorful ribbon but she wasn't sure if anything she had found was going to be useful at all to them. She wondered what her mother was able to find.

Ashley looked up from the table that she had walked over to when she heard Maddie speak up. She walked back over to her daughter and looked at the things that she had found. "Oh, those are cute. I think we can definitely use these." She replied as she picked up one of the pieces of paper and looked at it. Ashley picked up some ribbons and lace, and laid them over the different papers. "What do you think? Should we get them?"

"We should definitely get the ribbon and the lace. The ribbon we could use as a border or as a way to tie the pages altogether and the lace we could possibly use as a border for the pictures." Maddie was getting excited as she was pitching her ideas to her mother and gathering all of the supplies that she wanted to get. She wanted to know what other ideas her mother might have on how they could possibly decorate each page. She was happy that she was going to be able to do something fun and creative with her mother.

Ashley smiled as she heard the excitement in her daughter's voice and she nodded as Maddie talke about how they could use the items. She put all of the ribbon, lace and papers together in a pile and asked the vendor how much she was willing to sell it all for. When they settled on a price that they could agree on, Ashley grabbed the money out of her wallet and handed it to the other woman before she put the supplies inn her bag. "What else do we need?" She smiled at Maddie.

Maddie thought for awhile before saying "don't we need a scrapbook to put all of this in or do we have that already." She couldn't really thing of anything else they might need as she turned to her mother and wondered if she could think of anything of knew anything else that they might need. She helped her mother pack the supplies into her mind as her mind started to drift off. She had so much excitement for making crafts and she thought of projects that she could do for others but she felt that it was probably best if she focused on one project at a time.

"Oh, of course," Ashley giggled when her daughter reminded her that obviously they needed a scrapbook to put everything into. "I think there's a whole other section for books. Maybe we could find one of those adorable purses made out of a book too?" She smiled as Maddie helped her put everything in her bag, before she turned to start walking over to where she had seen a table of books earlier in the day.

Maddie couldnt wait to look through the area to find the perfect book for their scrapbook. She hoped that both her and her mother could agree on what book or book type to use. It was something that she was going to keep forever since it was going to have all of their precious memories. She was definitely open to discussing with her mother the types of books that she might be interested in and she was willing to listen to the type of books that her mother was interested in. "What type of book would you be interested in getting momma?"

Ashley shrugged lightly when Madeleine asked her what kind of book she would be interested in using. "I'm not really sure. Something big, the bigger the better. We have a lot of photos to put in it after all." Ashley was really glad that she was spending this time with her older daughter, knowing that soon enough she would be back in school again.

Maddie searched around to find a book that would be able to fit all of their precious photos. She thought that she saw a book that would be doable but she needed to get a closer view. She picked the book up that she saw to show it to her mother. Looking at her mother she showed her mother the book and said "what about this book that I saw do you think that this book would be able to fit and hold all of our photos and memories or would you like me to keep on looking for something different that might work."

Ashley continued to look around for a good book and other things they could use inside of it. She looked up when she heard Maddie ask her about a book that she had found. "Ya, I think this might work." She replied as she took the book from Maddie and set it down on the table so they could look through the pages and see how big it was. "What do you think?"

"I think it's perfect the book is the right size where we can fit all of our photos and memories but also we can decorate and customize it the way we like it." Maddie had some ideas on customizing the book. She went with her mother to pay for the book so that they could go home and get everything together for scrapbooking. She grabbed some of the bags so that she could help her mother carry some of the bags. "What ideas to you have for decorating the book and all of the pages?" She was curious but she was willing to share her ideas as well.

Ashley smiled and nodded when Maddie said that the book was the perfect size for all of their photos. "I agree, it's perfect." She told her daughter before she turned to ask how much it was. Thinking that it was a good price, she paid for the book before she put it in her purse with the other things that they had already bought. She thought for a minute when Maddie asked how they should decorate the pages. "Well, we should go in order. Start with your baby pictures and adoption photos."

"Where do we have the baby and adoption photos?" Madeleine was curious because she hadn't bothered to ask since she didn't think it was any of her business. She thought that she was at least old enough to ask about it now. She was excited to see what she looked like as a baby as well see the other photos that she hadn't seen before. She figured that maybe her mother had a good reason for keeping her from seeing the photos. She was only going to see them once her mother was ready to bring them out and let her see them.
