Some Fun...and some Candy!

Hey friends! Wow, it's 3:11 and I can't belive where today has gone! I was fully intending for this to get posted early this am and well...sick baby didn't think that was a good idea! I got home from a little get together with some of my friends last night and Max woke up shortly after I got home. He was up until after midnight and was all sorts of sad! So, this morning consisted of running to the dr., and getting baby all taken care of. He has a bit of a "wheezing" cough again, that seems to be what happens when he gets a cold of any sort! Long story shorter, he is doing better this afternoon and I have a chance to sit and get this posted!

So, I'd like to introduce you to Flower. This is one of the things that I've created the past few days! This owl, is my daughters and her name is Flower. She was so excited to choose what colors she wanted and make her just so. She thinks that this little owl is pretty much perfection in fabric....it makes my heart really happy! I made a couple sets of 3 different sized owls for two gifts we will be sending in the mail tomorrow...and then my girls needed one! I wish I could have saved them for under the tree, but it was KILLING them to watch me make them for their cousins...and they were so excited to get them! They've taken them everywhere and sleep with them too...I love it!
This is Fluffy. She is my little Ruby's delight. She chose these great fabrics (Thanks Jill!) and even chose a bit of super soft minky fabric for the back. I wanted to show you what the back was like, it is the lower photo. Yep, this is what is floating my girls boats right now! I'm thinking there will be many more owls coming...I've decided they are great for birthday party gifts...I'll be sharing more, I'm sure!
 I got the pattern for the owl from stubbornlycrafty. I used my printer to enlarge the template I downloaded, and this owl is made with the template enlarged to about 130%. I ended up making 4 different sized owls, but I think this is my favorite size!!
I'll share the gifts we sent next week...they are really fun too! Now, onto some birthday blog candy! I've picked a few of fun items to share with one lucky commenter! I am including a Northridge Media Stamping magazine, (I've got a project published in this one...), a pad of Queen Bee papper from Pink Paislee, some Maya Road rubons, a bottle of Smooch paint and some of my FAVORITE double sided sticky sheets! Because this is Birthday Candy, how about you comment and tell me about a memorable birthday you've had? I'll choose a comment at the end of the day Sunday, the 18th and announce the winner Monday morning in my post!

Thanks so much for stopping by! Sorry I'm later than I wanted to be...but Mommy Duty trumps it all, doesn't it! I hope you have a wonderful weekend getting all ready for the big weekend ahead!

These are super cute owls, friend! A memorable birthday for me was a couple years ago when my friends decided to have a New Year's Eve party (that's my birthday) and they kept dedicating 50 Cent's It's Your Birthday.
