Face Painting Fun!

 Have you ever tried face painting?  I hadn't until last month when I decided to give it a whirl at my niece Rakia's 3rd birthday party.  Luckily the kids were all willing participants and very happy with my first try. 

The kitty cat look was popular with the young ladies, but for my niece I went for something a little more bold - tiger face! 

She was into it and gave me her best fierce face. 

And quite a roar too!

My nephew Dorian liked it so much I had to wash off his original "lorax" look and go with the tiger too.  Overall it was fun and the kids love it - a great party activity for just a few dollars!

Bunting Bonanza!

Here is a fun and simple project I put together by request for my friend Becca. 

She was assisting on a baby shower for her sister-in-law and wanted some decoration that the upcoming bundle of joy might keep for her nursery.  I sewed this bunting for her - it came out well!  Girly, but not over the top pink.  I think I will be making more of these!  Thanks Becca for the inspiration!
