Robots and a Funny Shirt

So we figured out a gift for the birthday boy on Saturday. I think it was a great success.
He really liked the shirt India made. Go figure. I thought he would pass right over that!
Here’s what we came up with.

A make-your-own robot set inspired by this one… which is way cooler. You gotta start somewhere, right?

A shirt designed and painted by India. Have you ever done a freezer paper shirt? That’s what we did. We had about 4 stencils made from the paper. It turned out pretty cool, if I do say so myself.

A Few Gifts

With a joint baby shower and a birthday party on Saturday, I was able to get back into our tradition of making gifts. I felt a baby book would be nice to give the expectant moms and I saw this memory game here.
Another birthday this coming Saturday. No ideas. A boy turning 8… hum. Can I find anything beyond the plastic yuck in the stores? We’ll see.

Exterior of each. One for a boy, one for a girl. I know, both are a bit feminine. What can ya do?

One of the interior pages. I finally bought one of those stamps that are like the librarian date stamps. This has the entire alphabet and I think about 15 letters across. Awesome.

I have so much paper that I knew this would be a great project.

The card India made for the birthday girl who was turning 3. A picture of the girl and her big brother… who is appropriately small for her special day.
