Bonfire Party!

We had my sons birthday party last weekend! It was soo much fun! We really lucked out and had a beautiful day.

We roasted hotdogs, ate snacks, played with our over active border collies, opened gifts and ended with a fun trailer ride for the kids!

So for my cupcakes – I made mini cupcakes with orange icing. I cut up wafer cookies to make them look like wood on bonfire. We had more cupcakes, and cookies and all sorts of yummy goodies.

When it was time to go, each kids got one of these AWESOME bonfire cookies we had make by my daughters super talented piano teacher.

 

I love Birthday Parties! I have soo many wonderful pics – BUT they have my friends kids in them and I havn’t asked if IU could put them up!

Another Birthday Party!

My “Little” boy is turning THREE this weekend! WOW! I am so blessed to have this munchkin to call my very own!

And he LOVES me SOOOOOO MUCH!

So we are having his birthday party this weekend. I love planning and throwing birthday parties. I have soo many ideas for my daughters future parties… but I had a hard time thinking of something for my guy! I don’t want to go the way of a “licenced” theme (not that there is anything wrong with it – it just isn’t what I like to do).

We are having a “BONFIRE Party!”

 With Halloween coming up – we were going to have a bonfire (we have a lot of stuff to burn!) but I thought it would be a great theme for a party so we are doing it a bit early! We are going to have a BIG bonfire and also a smaller fire in our fire pit for roasting hotdogs and marshmallows (This is a parent and child party – if you are wondering why I am throwing such a hazardous themed party!!!). We are going to hitch a trailer to the lawn tractor or atv and have some rides around the yard. We are going to have a scavenger hunt and some other outside games. I am going to make some bonfire cupcakes ( I will post a tutorial on how I do that later!) and for the goodie bags – My daughters paino teacher is also an amazing cookies maker. She is going to make bonfire cookies! I am planning on putting one in a bag with a rocket pop and some glowsticks. Each bag will have a special tag with the kids name on it.

I will let you know how it goes!!!!!

Poppa!

I asked my 3 year old little boy to name this doll and I think he did a pretty good job! I am going to be making a few more of these little sweeties. I am really happy with it.

She is nice and small (about 8 inches) and is PERFECT for kids of any age.

I have been experimenting with different sizes lately. And have decided I really like the small dolls. There is something so sweet and magical about them. It dosn’t hurt that everytime I make a small dolly my daughter goes wild!!

Meet CLEO!

 
Meet Cleo!! She is an approx 15 inch tall “Kids of the King” Waldorf Inspired Doll.

She is wearing a kimono inspired wrap style shirt made out of some beautiful vintage cotton (from my grandmother!) and a brown ribbon tie. She has cotton pants and some really cool stretch cotton fringed boots/slippers.

She has a beautiful head of hair that is a mix of handspun blonde with sparkles, browns and oranges. When it is down, it hits below her shoulders and it is very FULL!! She has two sparkled gold hair clips. Her hair is in the crochet cap style which allows for many different hairstyles, and is sewn on so that it will stand the test of little hands tugging.

Her eyes are hand embroidered in a lovely shade of green and she has a nice little smile.

She is great to squeeze and hug because of her softer body. She has nice lean and long arms which make her quite easy to dress and play with.

She has been handformed and stuffed with love and 100% LOCAL Cowichan Valley wool that I collected, cleaned and carded myself. She is covered with reclaimed 100% cotton.

She has been put through the hug test and passed with flying colours! She will make a wonderful friend!

Eggnog Latte and signs of Fall.

I was grocery shopping yesterday and there it was….. EGGNOG! I love eggnog!

 It makes me think of Christmas and fireplaces, and shopping and curling up with a good book! So this morning I was REALLY excited to make myself an eggnog latte!

Since I am in the holiday mood – I am going to ignore all housework today (Sorry Jeff… if you are reading this) and spend the day sewing Christmas gifts and maybe get a few dolls done.
