Birthday Projects

I’ve become addicted to Pinterest.  A million projects and so little time.  I think I’ve probably done 8 things from Pinterest (half recipes and half crafts) in the last 3 weeks.  Fortunately for me I found Pinterest a few weeks before Oren’s birthday, which has allowed me to complete a couple of projects that will be for his 1st birthday party.  It’s going to be a very small party just his close family and the Moons, who have a daughter who is almost 3 and a son just a few months younger than Oren.  I’m sure Mom and Dad are looking forward to it more than Oren is, but I think he’ll enjoy pizza, cake and presents.  I imagine having other kids to play with or being the center of attention will also be favorite perks.

I wanted to find favors that would not just be junk, wouldn’t be overly commericial and would be appropriate for all the kids.  It was harder than expected until I had a look at my Crafts board on Pinterest and decided to adapt a felt owl ornament pattern into a small stuffed animal.  I’m going to have a hard time letting go of these.  They are fast, fun and adorable.  As a plus I already had a wide selection of felt that I got when I decided to make Oren a birthday crown.  The crown is just waiting to have its elastic attached.

Another just in time for birthday project was an all occasions cake stand.  I’m test baking cake 2 today.  Hopefully this one will be just right.
