My youngest daughter is an embellisher. Not of the truth mind you, but of everything around her.
She is forever adding paintings and doodles to ordinary objects. For example, she received a jar of handmade sugar scrub at Christmas. After using all the scrub we rinsed out the jar. I was happy to use it as is, my daughter on the other hand felt it needed to be embellished. The next time I saw the jar it was covered with pink polka dots.
Nothing is safe from her attention, even her school issued chromebook is covered with an assortment of pictures and stickers to make it more personalized.
I love that she is always adding color and individuality to her surroundings. I hope that one day that leads her to become a fabric/textile designer or some other career that lets her express her creativity.
