Angry Birds Nails

Every once in a while I have the opportunity to work with special needs children. One of them really enjoys Angry Birds. Anything and everything that has to do with Angry Birds this child knows about. One day, this student saw that I had some fun nail polish on my fingernails and asked if I could put Angry Birds on my nails. After about a week, I surprised the child with Angry Bird toes. The joy on the student's face was worth the amount of time it took to create these detailed things!

Love Notes

Sometimes with our hectic schedule, my husband and I don't always see each other as much as we would like. So I try to make sure he knows that I think of him even though our paths only cross a few minutes at a time on occasion. 

I wrote down about 10 things that I love about him and tucked them into bed knowing that he would be exhausted when he came home from work and would probably take a nap. 
It might sound cheesy, but it was actually a hit. He loved it, and it only took a few minutes! Win, Win. =)

Doll Cake

Many months ago, before my 7 year old turned 7, she suggested not so subtly that she would be thrilled if daddy made her a doll cake. It just so happened that a few years ago my husband's mother gave us a kit to make a doll cake. And with my hubby's cake decorating skills, here was what our daughter got on her birthday.

You've got to start with a cake base that looks something like this.

Then add some detail. He hates that I take "working" shots of him.

Add the rest of the skirt, and some "clothing" on top.

 Maybe a necklace and earrings too.

And bam! You have a cute doll cake.
