This is what I’ve been up to. OMG – this thing took forever to figure out (I’m a perfectionist) but once I had it figured out, it was a snap to do! This will go above the table during the birthday party, and then up in his room afterwards.
On a side-note, my little sister found my blog. No biggie – I’d mentioned it to her but hadn’t sent the address. She found it via her Etsy store – apparently someone clicked the link to her store from my blog. She hadn’t seen the referring link (my blog) before, so clicked it to check it out. So hello to you, Lewis, in case you’re still reading!!!
Back to my little project – I am doing this same type of thing for my friend’s baby shower. Now that I know what I’m doing, I’m going to get started! I am estimating that each one of these little dandies takes about 3 hours of time, start to finish. This one took much longer, but because I was figuring it out along the way.
Next up for the big birthday? Cake topper and animals for the forest scene on the cake.
And another side-note… but really this deserves much more than a side-note (but it’s not my news to share, so I’ll keep it a blurb here). I still want to post about my first Mother’s Day because B went all out! However, my day was devastated with the news of the passing of Ainsley Knepper. If you don’t know her story, please honor her memory by clicking over to her mom’s blog and offering a bit of love and support. Jen is the very first blogger I ever READ, let alone followed. I’ve been following her for over 3 years now. I don’t know her IRL, but I sure have known and loved her story. I do not love this part of her story – it is rather heartbreaking 😦
