Oh my gosh! Thanks so much everyone for all of the comments for the lei-away. I can't tell you how much I loved reading about everyone's worst or best crafts. That had to have been the most fun I've had reading comments! And thank you to all you de-lurkers too. It was so nice hearing from you all.
I wish I could send all of you leis to show my appreciation, so please accept my thanks instead! Buddy helped me draw a name last night and the winner is Sarah of Sarah P dot!
I realized after I posted that I've never shared my best or worst craft. I can't really think of a single best or worst thing but as far as oddly received it would have to be a tied quilt top I made for T before we were married.
It was the first patchwork piecing I ever did and I was determined to finish it in one weekend. I started Friday evening and somehow managed to finish by Sunday. The end result was wonky at best but I still loved it and couldn't wait to give it to T. Although he said he liked it, he never did use it, and later claimed it was too short. I kept telling him he's not that tall! And much to my horror, one day when I went to his place he was using it as a curtain! We still have it, maybe I'll post a picture.
Not much crafting going on around here as I'm still scrambling to get everything ready for our Japan trip. I am so excited! With the exception of some neighbor island trips we haven't been on a real vacation in almost two years, so this is long overdue. Can't wait!
Buddy had a swim-a-rama at school today which is sort of like a swimming recital, so we decided to make some cupcakes for the occasion. It's supposed to be a bear floating in an inner tube. Do you see it?
I thought this would be the quickest cupcakes ever. Just stick a bear into the trolli gummy circle on blue frosting and add some fish sprinkles. But I mistakenly bought mini teddy grahams instead of the regular size one, so the inner tube is way too big. That's what you get for being cheap. I couldn't figure out why the big bag of teddy grahams was a dollar less than the smaller box, but I bought the cheaper one anyway. And the features on the mini teddies are much less pronounced so I ended up having to draw the faces on with food coloring pens. So much for easy-peasy!
(Speaking of cupcakes this cracks me up!)
