What did you do yesterday?

I had a wonderful day yesterday with my friend Mare.
She did hi-lights in my hair. I wanted to get it done before the holidays!
Then, I helped her make a cake for her son. He wanted a skateboard cake.
When I Google searched for pics, this is one I found. He loved it!
So, we did our best to recreate the design for him. I think it turned out awesome!
The wheels are made from fruit roll-ups and the trucks are Pirouettes wrapped in fruit roll-ups.
They will be put on the cake before serving it.
Have a great day! XO, Mimi

Thanksgiving in LA!

Lower Alabama, that is.
We are packing the camper and taking the 4-wheelers and hittin' the road for this holiday. I am so excited to be in the cold weather. Away from home. No amusement parks. No internet. No day to day stuff to worry about.
My dear friend, Milissa, and her family, were going up there and asked if we would like to join them. DUH! Any chance to use the camper and get away with good friends is a good time for me.
One of the things I am most excited about is having our Thanksgiving feast among the forest critters. Doesn't that sound great?!
So, while blurfing, I saw these and immediately started to think of what I could make with what I have. Well, here's my version. I love them!!
I didn't have chalkboard paint so I spray painted (my new favorite thing to do) the large tags with black and then brushed on some acrylic flat black. Worked great!
Didn't have the color flowers I wanted so, I took some Primas I had and sprayed them with some Maya Mists. Voila! You would not believe what these flowers looked like before I sprayed them. I didn't know Prima could make ugly flowers. LOL! Well, ugly no more!
Well, that's all I got for ya today.
If I get all my chores done, maybe I will post some more stuff I have made.
Thanks for stoppin' by! XO, Mimi
