whew, I’m beat.

Knit. Sew. Felt. Embroider.  These are the things I am doing for my upcoming grand opening at A Handmade Princess.  The big date is going to be February 3, 2010.  And, drumroll, I chose banner #1.  Thanks for voting!

While I’ve been doing all that, I’ve also been preparing for DD’s birthday party, which was today (her birthday is this coming Wed.).  Last night and early this morning, I knit a flower head warmer, baked a castle cake, made flower shaped jello jigglers, made pink cream cheese, made pink cream cheese heart shaped sandwiches, dipped strawberries in chocolate, sewed buttons, read some blogs, watched Sherlock Holmes, put up the decorations, made tulle gift bags, and tidied the house.


So, here’s a recap in photos:

read The Princess and Frog (rented from the library)

played pin the kiss on the frog game (DS drew the picture of the frog and lips)

All decorations handmade by me 😀
