Made It Myself Monday: 13 means Sushi

Well, the accidentally big blog break at the beginning of the month had a bit to do with the fact that the first half of October is fraught with Birthday's around here.

Saturday, the wunderkind had his 13th. The theme was Sushi featuring Rock Band Karaoke and it was our first official Boy-Girl Party. It was great, the kids came and all the neighbors crashed the party as well. There isn't a scrap of food left in the house.

My main contribution was the cake.









oh yeah, and the birthday boy, but at 13, I guess I still consider him a WIP.



Happy Birthday Kid, I love you more than I could ever say... now, go do your homework.




I really want to say a big thanks to all the folks who stopped by from Today's Creative Blog too.
And to the delightful Kim for her really great article. So Very Kind!!



That was such a wonderful birthday present to get all the lovely feedback on the western shirt.
I just started a Wild Western Shirt Flickr group for all you folks looking to make your own!

I think it will be so fun to see all the variations!

I hope I get my next western shirt cut out today. So many things to sew, so little time.

Oh, and I did make a special 40th Birthday New Vintage Party Dress... Stay tuned. It will be posted as soon as I get that photo shoot done. Which will be after my photographer finishes his homework.

That cake is incredible, both in concept and realization! Happy Birthday to everyone at the BB ranch and I may need to find a place in my sewing queue for a western shirt!

Happy Birthday to All!
The birthday cake ROCKS! It is amazingly creative and fun. I haven't made a shirt yet, so why not start with a western one. I admit I maybe getting in too deep, but what the hay!
