People who know me, know my love of all things cupcake - but they may not know I have an interest in vegan food. That's because it is a recent interest, fuelled by my youngest daughter's allergies to dairy (& gluten). I can't wait to try out some of these recipes!! :)
Yep, it's that time of year at our house. Lot's of birthday going's on's! A couple of weeks ago it was Hope's and now it's Aimee's turn. Luckily for Aimee, I think I have my craft mojo back, at least in a small way.
Lookie, what I'm making her for her 11th Birthday tomorrow!
Well, a sneak peak anyway... still unfinished, but thank God for husbandless evenings, because tonight I'll finish it!
In case you're wondering what it could possibly be... It's a little case (fur-lined & waterproof resistant) for her Nintendo DS.
Yesterday at craft group my interest in applique was rekindled and I've been at it like crazy since then. Cupcakes, birds, flowers all excitedly stitched. So, lets hope the craft creativity drought is finally over because I am getting sick of reading novels hastily chosen from the local library! There's a season for everything, but I was going a little crazy there!
This is something that my kids and I have been involved in for the past couple of years - it's a fantastic lesson in giving to others, and they always have fun trying to find neat things to give at the local $2 store. :)
Now is the time to be thinking about doing this, so that kid's all around the world can get a wee gift this Christmas. It doesn't cost much, but it's a totally worthwhile experience. Our old church used to make a big party of making up the boxes together! Not sure how we will do it this year, but it's sure to be fun!
