But that is not what you came for. Here are the latest birthday favors that I'm making for my friend's son. He's turning five and has been wanting a fire truck theme party forever. My friend saw some favors she liked and asked if I could re-create them. I played around on my computer and this is what I came up with. I was actually glad to do this project for my friend because it forced me to learn different techniques that could be used in Microsoft Word. I'm getting a lot better about incorporating computerized art in my crafts. I used the drawing features in Word (it's the tool bar on the bottom of the word screen). Prior to this project, I never knew what those button were for. It is amazing what we can learn from the internet just by doing a google search. I love the little ring of dots around the name. It was a pain in the but to center the name in the middle of the circle. I think I just gave up and moved the circles instead. The fire truck is from clip art. I think everything turned out well and I look forward to making more projects like this.
Next month I was invited to the "For Love of Chocolate Festival" in Escondido on Feb 12th. I just love the name. I've been trying to make some new cards, favors, clothes, and projects for that event. Hopefully I remeber to take pictures of everything, so I can show you some of my new designs.
Have a wonderful week and I hope to write more soon. Wish me luck at my job interview this Friday. I'm going to need it.
