I didn't intend to step away from blogland, and yet 8 days have passed sans posting. I suppose that I am in a bit of a slump - a craft slump that is. And the sun is to blame.
After what felt like an eternal monsoon season here in Oklahoma, the sun has finally come out to play; I have fully taken advantage of it with picnic lunches, evening strolls, and daily Sonic trips (what good is summer without a Route 44 iced tea in hand?). Perhaps I should consider moving my sewing machine onto the back patio...
This week has not been completely devoid of crafty ventures, though.
On a recent shopping trip I came across this sweet little dress:
I immediately thought of cupcakes and sprinkles.
Luckily, I had an excuse to pick it up: my niece, Briley, is turning 2 this summer!
Knowing that it would be perfect for her,
I decided to personalize it by appliqueing a "2" and a cupcake!
The project was so fun and simple, I know that I will make something similar for my own girls' parties (when my oldest saw the dress, she begged for one of her own!).
Which makes me wonder: What is the cutoff for proclaiming your age on your shirt? My husband's birthday is next month - what would he think of wearing "his number" across his chest... I suppose I better stick to surprising him with tools and electronics!
p.s. Krista, the dress will be in the mail tomorrow!
