My cousin's baby turned 100 days old the other day... and in the Korean heritage, it's a big celebration! Many years ago, it was a blessing to see a baby make it to 100 days because a lot of babies got sick and if they could make it to 100 days, chances were good that they would live a full life. And now, it's just a fun thing to celebrate [like a little birthday!]
Well she tends to make the cutest meals... she'll make bento boxes for her husband's lunch like these.
And this time, she made a little meal for Evan for his 100 days. [I stole this from her blog]. He can't even eat it... haha...
I saw this on MS crafts and thought this would so fun to add to your candy table or even centerpieces! Of course, the candy would have to match your decor. You could add candy to little glassine bags instead of the candy shown below and wrap them with paper or stickers with your monogram and have it match a lot better. :)
My friend made me such a thoughtful gift! At first, I thought it was a table-top corkboard, but she corrected me quickly... She made me a jewelry stand!
Here it is with my jewelry all set up. Thanks Michelle - my crafty hands-on friend! I love it!
This could be a very thoughtful gift for your bridesmaid or host! She took a photo frame, removed the glass, distressed the front of the frame, layered a luxurious piece of paper on the backing and hammered little knobs onto it, I think... If you had all the time in the world, little tiny frames for each guest would be a really kind and thoughtful guesture or maybe just for your bridal party!
In honor of my 32 birthday, I decided to host a little party for my dear friends. I sent out invitations, decorated my home, made some simple food and of course, had a little party favor for each guest! I was thankful for all of those that could attend and saddened that some of my closest friends from SF, Philly, DC, and southern IL weren't able to join me! It was a good time of just hanging out with friends and also helped me not focus on how old I'm turning. haha... I think from here on out, I may host an intimate party each year just to appreciate my friends and all that they put up with throughout the year! [I'll go into details in the entries to come...]
1. skewer large marshmellow 2. dip the marshmellows in softened/warmed chocolate and let it dry 3. remove the skewer and replace with a lollipop stick (or bamboo skewers work fine too) 4. dip the top part of the marshmellow in a colored chocolate (they sell this at michael's or other bakery supply stores) 4. sprinkle toppings as you wish and you can add an m&m on top or maybe those mini ones.
I started making gift packages. It's always nice to get a little bit of everything. so...you'll receive namecard flats, address labels, gift tags and book plates. Just let me know your gift receiver's favorite color and I'll try to incorporate as much of that as possible. :)
sometimes... you know what to get someone and sometimes you have no idea... well here's one solution... a gift certificate to just the little things! that's right... i was inspired to create a gift certificate. i'm not set on the idea... but here's 2 for starters... maybe i'll make a few different designs and you can choose which one is best.
these gift certificates also come all packaged up for your recipient to enjoy opening up... because really, it's always nice to open up a gift rather than a plain envelope!
