If nothing else...I amuse myself...

I am not the craftiest of people. While I do consider myself creative...words like stitch, pattern, glue gun...make my blood run cold...

And so you can imagine how thrilled I am with this centerpiece of party favors I crafted for Lia's brithday party tomorrow afternoon (with 14 of her closest school friends...good times...good times...and I am NOT even being sarcastic at all). It is constructed with styrofoam, felt and spray paint...and while a glue gun was not used...I did use crafter's glue .

While this happy little gobbler makes me smile everytime I pass by...I am pretty sure I heard Jim guffaw....oh, how well he knows me and my...ahem...abilities...

Too cute! Did you come up with the idea on your own? I am impressed. I'm not crafty at all and do not enjoy it, however, I think I could get into this little project.

I can't wait to see pics of Lia's birthday party! Sounds like good times : )

Tell Jim I think it is AWESOME! (Is that still an okay word? I am SO out of it!)
Can't wait to see the B-day pics!

I think after making that Turkey you can't really describe yourself as not crafty! Its so cute. Of course, in my house the lollipops would not last as turkey feathers!

Hope the birthday party goes well.

I love that centerpiece! I think you are quite talented. I am craft challenged as well - not sure I would have even tried it! Hope the party was success and hope you guys had a great weekend!
