Does Collecting Make You Feel Dirty?
As I previously noted, Skylar spent a long time on the valentines -- about thirty, in all -- she was supposed to prepare for her classmates and teachers. She always does. But it makes her happy and also won her some praise for working so hard to ensure that each one was suited to its recipient's interests. My favorite was the one she made for a friend fond of dolphins:

One of the valentines that she received from her classmates praised her for doing her best, even when she isn't doing work that would be judged on its quality. I think he meant that she is caring and goes out of her way to brighten the spirits of those who are struggling. But the encomium applies to every aspect of the way she lives her life. I'm glad that, when I was in San Francisco a few weeks ago, I was able to find her the beanie toy rendering of the cat from Kiki's Delivery Service that she has wanted for months. It made a perfect Valentine's Day gift.

That's so thoughtful of her to have individualized them so. That's impressive.

I know. The kids were really happy with them. She's so awesome. Under the weather today, sadly.

It might be worth a lot. Even the little one I picked up wasn't cheap. We have pretty big stufffed totoros purchased in the mid-1990s for about $80 each that are now going for much more than that.

www.jlist.com (or www.jbox.com for the same site minus the more adult items). i got it from there awhile ago, i think it was $15-18. i looooove the various candy they have as well as re-ment. re-ment are barbie-sized miniatures but they're super duper detailed.
