  • Project: day 126: cooking it up/ a special way to celebrate a birthday: birthday pancakes with sprinkles, candles, and “frosting”
  • Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
  • Would I do it again? yes, and probably will for every birthday! It was another great way to start a birthday morning!
  • What I would do differently: nothing! I might try doing it with the cake batter as per the original source, but I thought pancakes would be a better way to start the day versus cake! Hey, the sprinkles were already way different than what we would typically have for breakfast!
  • Items used: pancakes, sprinkles, candles, and “frosting” (half and half and powdered sugar), and the adorable idea from: http://www.tasteandtellblog.com/2011/09/birthday-cake-pancakes/

Until ipinterest tomorrow!

Project: day 47: get crafty/ kids party decoration idea/a year in photos, collage
• Difficulty rating (1=easiest, 5= way too hard!): 1
• Would I do it again? yes! It’s a great way to commemorate your child’s past year in photos (or anyone for that matter). We did this for Morgan’s Minnie Mouse birthday party coming up, and I thought what better way to show what she has been doing for this past year, and how much she has grown. It hopefully should be pretty cute with all the fun Minnie Mouse decor!
• What I would do differently: get the photos in black and white!! I meant to but started uploading all of the photos and forgot to change them to black and white. Oh well, next time!
• Items used: instead of waiting to put them up on the day of the party (since we are not having the party at our house, but rather The Little Gym), I thought it would be better if I could make it ahead of time. So I just laid out legal size copy paper, stapled them together to for the number 3, ordered about 70 picture of Morgan all taken since she turned 2 last year until now (you can probably get away with using 40 or so, I didn’t use all of mine), taped the pictures with double sided tape to the paper, and voila! Now I can take it to the party and it will be ready to go!
until ipinterest tomorrow!
