Baby Boy & My Hubby's Talent

Here I am posting again! It is way past my bedtime but I just had to show you what I made. I did these for my friend who is giving a baby shower to a co-worker. When I first made it I didn't have the dark ear on there and I just felt like it needed something else. There wasn't a good place to add any glitter like I normally do so I cut out some dark ears and added them to the cute little elephant from Wild About You.

I'm thinking I might be giving away some blog candy soon. I browsed through Michael's the other day an picked up a few goodies. So I'm tying to decide what I want base it on. Check back soon and I'll let you know!

BTW- have you checked out the Bella site? There is a new bella, wineabella. She is too cute! I have been adding more and more to my shopping card on that site and I think it's about time to hit submit.

School is almost out and I'll have all summer to make goodies and post to my blog. I plan to be very busy here!

I thought I would post a little something my husband made. He is into making those plastic model cars. They are so good that he has won awards at some shows and has even been featured in a magazine. He has been working on one for the last few weeks. It takes him a long time to finish because he puts so much detail into them. This thing has parts so small that you need a magnifying glass to see it. I love it when he is working on one because he is in the "hobby" room with me where I stamp. We listen to the radio and laugh a lot when we work together. He is always saying something like, "Honey, come look at this." And I'm always asking him, "Do you think this looks better here or here?" So take a look at what he is making. It is the engine he is building to put in the car. Keep in mind that you can put this tiny thing in the palm of your hand and still have plenty of room for other things. Do you see that little piece of blue on the left there? He used some of my SU cardstock to make a gasket for the engine! lol We are always sharing tools but I never expected him to raid my paper stash! At least he used the scraps!
I'm so proud of the work he does on these things. I am just amazed because I would never have the patience to make this. I would end up throwing it across the room! I can't work with things that tiny! I posted this 2nd picture so you can get an idea of how small these things are! This is a dash board that he made and it is on top of a piece of regular graph paper! I just wanted to share my hubby's wonderful talent with you too!
I'll be posting again soon!
