RoBOt Cake...

I have the goofiest kid ever.  I printed him a ton of robot photos to choose from for his birthday cake last year and he chose the simplest one.  I was grateful for sure, cause I do not have fantastic cake decorating skills.  Anyway, here's his robot cake from his 8th birthday...
This year he has decided on Pokemon and I am not sure what kind of cake I will be making for that yet.

Build Your Own Fort Kit

Once again I was inspired by something I pinned on Pinterest (here).  I saw this idea for a fort kit for boys.  I thought it would be a great gift for my friend's son's fourth birthday.  I picked up a blue sheet from Walmart, a non-woven drawstring backpack from Michaels, glow sticks from Michaels, and clothespins, rope, and a flashlight from the Dollar Tree.

I used felt to cut out the birthday boy's initial and some baker's twine (I think Martha Stewart brand) to hand sew it onto the bag.  I made a cute little tag with some scrapbook paper and my computer and stitched that on as well.  I loaded all the items into the bag and ta da...fort kit.  I know my son would love this!

End of Year Teacher Gifts...

I saw this idea on Pinterest here and decided to use it for Aiden's teachers this year.  I like to give them a little something to say thank you at the end of the school year.  I really hope they enjoyed it.

The baskets included a Bath & Body Works strawberry hand soap, Orbit strawberry gum, strawberry Twizzlers, a hand made notepad with strawberry themed cover and strawberry candies.  The tag says "Thank you berry much for a great year".
