Homemade gifts!

    Recently I have become obsessed with making gifts and what-nots for special occasions. Why not give someone something that is made just for them. and its a really good way to upcycle! This is in no way an original idea, but still cute and fun! This little lunch set was made especially for a sweet little girl named Tatum who recently turned one! I didn't upcycle the felt from my stash for this...well because babies mouth EVERYTHING! And there is no reason to risk it with small ones.  I had the honor of also making her smash cake. I wish I had gotten a pic of her eating it though!
This is the cute little lunch bag all made from scratch like any good lunch should be! Pink lunch bag, with potato chip bag and chips, and sandwich consisting of : two pieces of bread (with crusts lol), tomato, cheese, lettuce, and bologna!
This is Baby Tatum's smash cake. Her mom was going to a Cowgirl Uniqua (Backyardigans) theme and totally nailed it!! This cake is a paisley theme, like a bandana. It was a pink strawberry cake with pink frosting and pink fondant and pink paisleys! Gee think there is enough pink going on? The party was a blast. And I feel honored to have been apart of it in such a special way!
