I know the snaps aren’t the greatest but the subject is!

Ready set LEGO!

13 Apr

 

setting the scene.. 3 boys ages. 7, soon to be 6 and soon to be 4.  Common interest LEGOS.  Buying Legos, building Legos, racing Legos, leaving a lone lego on the floor to be step on at 3 am (old lady potty run) and nearly taken out by, eating lego treats, watching lego movies…I think you have the picture now.

the invite:

Included in the bag was a coloring book that Carin printed and I stitched down the center to hold it together (yes you can sew on paper!)

Lego

i spent an entire day making almost 200 lego crayons:

And several lunch hours cutting out lego magnets:

we tossed in a little jar of bubbles that were super cheap and all we had to do was open the package!  Which after the crayon day, was about all I could manage!

and the attire:

Lego shirts Lego shirt Carin purchased shirts in their favorite colors and printed their name and mini figure with their birthday #  on an iron on transfer.

The cakes: lord Business, Batman, and superman.  Dairy free and made by Carin.

Fail.

So the church bake sale itself was a success.  But my little cookie holders, not so much.

Cookies

I made 20 little holders using washi tape, burlap strips and buttons.

Cookies

And I ended up buying 12 of them back before we dropped prices to 50%  for the last 10 minutes.

oh well Scott now has some fresh cookies and I have 12 decorated holders for some future event.

Oh well not a total loss.  Unbeknownst to me at the time, I guess I had a couple people trying to determine my age and so far I must be keeping the wrinkles at bay as the guess was a few years less than my actual age.  Thank goodness they weren’t trying to guess my weight.  Course maybe plumping up my wrinkles is what shaved those years off the guess.  Dang it.  Waddling off to the treadmill now.

10 more makes 80

Hmmm. Trysts only 9.  Hang tight while I figure out what happened with my numbering system…

so I thought this one was a duplicate snap of the same quilt, but I think it might be the 2nd of 3 identical but different sized tops.

Ufo  and yet….I don’t know….I’m going to say this is only 9 until I check it out closer.  I’m getting kinda close to 100……
