Franklin Park & Paul Busse Exhibit





A long while back I did 
a Christmas post 

A few years later
he asked if 
I would give my permission
to allow him to use
my photos on his web pg

I was truly honored to be asked
and of course said yes!

I was pleased to go back 
to Franklin Conservatory
in Columbus 
and see a new display of his
If you look closely
you will see




Old Woman and the Shoe


Red Riding Hood







 Cinderella



 3 Little Pigs












 What others can you find?


Burps and Bibs


For the burp clothes
I used diapers
and fat quarters and scraps




I did a basic
zig zag stitch



I started making bibs
 using this tutorial 
from  Sew She Sews

I did not do the
 patchwork part


They were so easy
and worked up quickly
I used various fat quarters
and leftover fabric

Easy PB Reece Cup Cookies


The orginal recipe came from



I did a little changing
instead of making 
their peanut butter cookie recipe
I bought Pillsbury store bought dough



I used a scoop
and made balls
and put them in a mini cupcake pan
then put the mini Reeces Cups in the middle
pressing them down


I baked them at 350
for at least 10 min



Taking them out of the mini pan 
is challenging
They do need to cool down
and I used a knife 
down the side of the 
cookie and pop them out


Once out 
I drizzled them with
Chocolate Almond Bark



These taste as good as they look

Cupcake Picks




I got the idea 
for these adorable
cupcake picks 
at
at the bottom 
of the page is 
a printable

Since I had used the polka dot
paper in the invitations 
I decided to use the same paper 
for the backs 
of the 
picks

The shape was cut out
with Cricut machine



I initally taped
 the toothpick one
but found some
 decorative tape at 
Dollar Tree


that was polka dots
 and covered over
 the reg tape
(of course I didn't 
think to take  photo)
