Making Truffles for my Church

Please Rate Article: 
With Mother's Day just around the bend, I have decided to make gifts for the women at my church. Now, because I know no one at my church reads this blog (I have not shared it with them) (Grow your own gnome), they will not know what I am doing for them.

This year, I have decided instead of having the church buy something for the Mom's, myself included, I would make homemade Flower Pens and Truffles. I completed all the Flower Pens a month ago and am almost complete with the Truffles. These Truffles are not real fancy as I have yet to master that part of Truffle making. I still have to put together some gold boxes and add two Truffles to each box. I was hoping to make at least 100 Truffles...we shall see...

Personalized Birthday card for my Dad

Please Rate Article: 
My Dad's birthday was at the end of March. I too made him a birthday card. The one thing I forgot to do was take photographs of what it looks like. Actually, the card looks like the other ones I made, it just reads, Happy Birthday Dad.

I have asked my Mom to take some photos for me so I can upload them here for you to see. I do make other birthday card designs, this is just the design I used for my family.

If you look at the card I made my Mom, on this blog site, you will see what my Dad's looks like.

When I receive the photos of the birthday card, I will upload them here too.
