so i made 48 crowns total for my daughters birthday and they were really quite a nice and easy gift and craft for the kids. I laid out all the crowns and all the crafts (feathers, markers, gems, stickers and glue) the kids decorated their crowns. It was fun and they had a gift to take home. Even with the craft portion they were really cute and suitable for boys and girls. I will be handing out another batch with lollipops for my daughters class.
I really think this will be a great item to sell with all the single crowns, batches of crowns, plain. I just now have to go purchase a bunch of the paper :) wish me luck finding it again.

I am currently working on 40 crowns for my daughters birthday. All will be plain gold crowns. I really hope the kids enjoy them. I love my little crowns. I really believe i have something here. All i want to is see people wearing and enjoying my crowns and of course support my hobby. At this point i know i just need to give it time, but i hope i get a bite soon.
30 crowns posted… and more to come.
I love rice pudding. So while looking through a book i bought for my self as a mothers day gift, i got to the recipe for rice pudding and i instantly knew i was going to cook this recipe. I bought the groceries Friday and i made the pudding Saturday. All was going fairly well, for the milk exception. I ran out of milk, but was rescued by my darling husband :). So like i said cooking, cooking, cooking…result? not so good, not bad, but i ended up throwing away most. As soon as i ate it i realized the problem….the rice pudding needed to bake and settle in a shallow pan and i placed it in one that was too deep. So i will try again!
I was planning on a dinner party or just having a party this month, BUT i will be on vacation the weekend i had planned for the party. Adjustments will made…For June i will continue to cook a new recipe every weekend.
