Delusions of Martha

I often tell folks I have delusions of Martha.  Perfect meals.  An immaculate home.  The most incredible birthday parties for kids.
I don't even come close.
  Case in point:
In my delusions of Martha state there would be the most alluring treat bags for the birthday girl to take to school.
In reality, the lazy Mom version hauled out the Cricut and stuck these babies on some store bought oatmeal creme pies (which may or may not have been sampled a minimum of six times while completing the project and wiping the tell tale cream off her face...).
Over the weekend I did make this:
In the past, delusions of Martha mom has crafted a number shirt for the Princess to wear on her big day.
This year Junque Mom stepped in and made a junque necklace.  In truth, the kid is getting a bit old for a big number shirt and has been begging me for ages to make her a junky necklace.  Lazy mom failed to get around to it.  Birthday Junque Mom saved the day with a bit of a raid through her stash. 
Vintage chokers are perfectly sized for kids (and ONLY kids because every time I try to wear one of these puppies I wonder just how petite women were back in the day).  An old brooch dangles off the domino with just a hint of bling and blue to match her eyes.
Martha I am NOT.
Junky I AM.
And that dear readers, IS A GOOD THING!

Okay....those handmade I mean those cookies are AWESOME. Just another reason that I NEED a Cricut. Just great! So cute. I bet she was one proud 7 year old! Hope she had a great birthday!

Love, love, love the necklace with the 7 domino. So clever!

WAY COOLER than a T-shirt 8-)
...and the school probably much prefers 'sealed'-store bought goodies anyways!!

It's adorable. GREAT idea. And I thought the 7's were an AWESOME way to dress up Little Debbies! :)
Happy Bday to your girl!
