This is a great appetizer for baby showers, brunches or parties. I have also made this dish and put it on lettuce for a lunch too. I particularly love the little wonton cups you make, they are super easy and versitile. I have used them for shrimp cocktail, desserts like mousses and fruit cups.
I have used these for hair clips/ponytail ties but they would look great on a blouse or on a hat.They are pretty easy to make (once you get the hang of it) but the first few times I watched the video on how to make them I had to pause it about every other second to make sure I knew what I was doing.

I wanted to make my daughter a bean bag chair she could use to watch her signing videos and baby einstein and not have to sit either on the floor or in an exersaucer since I worry everytime whether or not she will fall off the couch. I found a great pattern here and they even have an adult size pattern too. It was super easy and eventhough it cost me about the same amount if I would have just went out and purchased a bean bag I got to customize it to match my living room while at the same time being a fun and festive seat for a child.
Here is a picture of a hat my sister made for Karsyn Isn't it cute!
Aren't these super cute! I made these using a large chocolate mold and crayons I got from the dollar store. To make you will need several tin cans and crayons of your choice. Unwrap your crayons and similar colors into a tin can.
There were ladybug antennae I made for all of the kids out of black pipe cleaner, styrofoam balls painted red and headbands but Karsyn wouldn't wear hers so we opted for a headband an bow instead.
Karsyn's first birthday party was this weekend and it was a huge success. If you can't tell it was ladybug themed and we had way too much food and sweets, but everyone had a good time. I will be posting several tutorials in the next few days on how I made several of the items from the party.
I am so excited, tomorrow is Karsyn's birthday party...her actual birthday is next Tuesday but we are celebrating with lots of friends and family tomorrow. The first birthday is of course mostly for the parents and I agree, but I don't care...I am celebrating surviving a year of parenthood just as much as we are celebrating her birthday. It will be a special day for the whole family and all of our friends/family that have been on this journey with us. I will have LOTS of projects and recipes coming up from the party so stay tuned.
