Yesterday we spent almost 8 hours driving through a blizzard to deliver this cake:
To this special 5 year old:
He asked for a Disney castle cake with fireworks and Buzz Lightyear flying through the sky and that is just what he got! It was a huge hit! My friend Traci makes the most fabulous cakes (well she DID make the most fabulous cakes... she is hanging up her apron for a while and I am sad to see her go).
The facepainting was provided by my very talented daughter (another huge hit).
Of course we went with a gift for the five year old, a hot wheels race track and cars, but I thought I should bring a little something for his 2 year old sister.
A while ago I had saved a post from Skip to my Lou on making peg dolls. I thought it would make a great little gift for my niece if I made peg dolls of her family. I found two sizes of people at Michaels, dug out some acrylic paints and clear varnish and although my painting skills are a little rusty but I finally came up with these:
She was thrilled with "her little family" and had a great time taking them out of the little cloth bag I had made to show everyone and lining them up on the table.
They were a lot of fun to paint and made a cute last minute gift, it felt great to break out the paints and get a little creative. I bought a few extras.. wonder what I can make with them?
