Working on a few projects today. One is covering votives with oragami paper for an engagement dinner we are having on Saturday night. It's a chinese theme and I am stringing white lights above the table, paper lanterns etc..a little more China Town than China. The votives didn't exactly work, the paper bubbled and the modge podge just wasn't cooperating. I was going to ditch them, but then I lit them up and I am loving the colors so I will pretend they are perfect. The second project I am working on is Valentine's Day gifts for Holden's teachers and loved ones. I put a piece of oragami under these glass lids and they are really cute. Thinking I'll just fill the containers with chocolates. What teacher can resist chocolate-instant energy to deal with crazy class of four year olds. Also signed up to take treats for Holden's Valentine's party. I'm never wild about bringing treats, I'm much better at bringing the plates and napkins. But I did find a really cute recipe for sugar cookie "necklaces" You string heart shaped cookies with red licorice rope and the kids can wear them. The teacher might hate me for it, but it's a chance I'm willing take. Maybe I'll get banned from treats....hmmmm :)
