Tonight is the first birthday party of many that Girl Child will attend this year.......that is if it's anything like the years gone by. We've established a bit of a tradition (quite by accident mind you). At the beginning of the year, Girl Child decides on "The Gift" for that year. This same gift gets made and given to each friend whose party she attends. Last year was photo cushions, this year it's toteable towels....this is the point where you hear a drum roll..........and much thanks goes to Anna Maria Horners blog. She provided the free tutorial for this ingenious creation. They're quick, easy, and oh so cute:-> Take a look, and decide for yourself.
The first picture....yes, the not so great one - shows it partially folded up. The second picture shows it all rolled up and ready to tote!!! There will be many more of these made this year, in many different patterns............I already have plans for a Valentines one for a very special little one year old who lives over the ocean:->
In other news....tomorrow is Boy Childs Cub Scout Pinewood Derby!!! Anyone familiar with this event will know just how big a deal it is. The hours of car designing, building and decorating that go into the cars would rival any of the big car makers!!! In honor of this big ocassion dessert tonight was jello cars and custard. I got this cute mold as a freebie when I purchased some jello last year. Demolding them was a bit of a challenge, but they turned out to be really cute........and not to mention yummy!!!
Thanks for stopping by. Have a fantastic weekend and...... Happy Crafting:-)
