My mom and grandma came to visit last weekend and we had a little pre-birthday celebration for Emma while they were here. I made and decorated her a cake, under her watchful eye and strict instructions. She dictated the colors, the shape, and told me exactly what she wanted it to look like. She wanted to do the sprinkles herself, so I handed them over and let her have at it. She worked very meticulously on those sprinkles for a good twenty minutes. While she was working so diligently, I heard her say to herself, "This just might be the best cake ever." I think she might be right.The other night I made her this birthday crown out of wool felt. I bought enough materials to make one for Noah and Allie too, and my hope is that they will each wear theirs every year on their birthday. Steve said he also wants one, so maybe I'll make one for him too. Emma seems to like hers so I'd say so far the birthday crown idea is a success.Even though it isn't really her birthday yet, it was a fun little celebration, and who wouldn't like an extra birthday party? And I, for one, am always up for extra cake.

WOW. She did a great job with the sprinkles! She might want to put a little more on though, I think she missed a spot! LOL!!
Love the crown! L.O.V.E it!
YOU ARE SO CRAFTY!! I enlisted a little help from my seamstress friend for the "drawing bag". I'll send you some pictures. She added her own little twist on it, I am happy with the way it turned out.
I'll email you some pics of it!
Someday I'll be crafty.....someday.....
