What I Have Been Working On

   Here are a few things I have been working on.

   I helped Chrissy get ready for a Harry Potter birthday party for her daughter. We made a Golden Snitch cake. It was pretty simple to make. We used my ball cake pan and then frosted it with vanilla frosting. I added some swirls and such to give it some texture. We then used some gold food coloring spray to color it. The wings are cut out of some thick paper and taped to tooth picks. Easy peasy!

   My eight year old kiddo has had two surgeries in less than a month. This has given me plenty of time to sit around and crochet while I wait for a whimper or a "Mom, I'm hungry/thirsty/in pain/cold/tired/can I watch..." Since I have a hard time just sitting, I usually have some sort of project going.

   My friend had twin girls so I made her babies these. I don't have a picture of them in it yet since they are still in the NICU. They are doing well, just not home yet.

   I have a favorite YouTube gamer guy. He does a segment on Board Game Breakfast. They have board game news and such. Anyway, he does a segment called Head in the Clouds so I made him this dice bag. I thought it was rather cheesy, but he loved it!

   His YouTube channel is Pair of Dice Paradise, so I also made him this mat. He can use it for his games or hang it on his wall. Whatever he'd like.

   There's a game convention coming up called GenCon. Since there are so many gamers that can't make it, last year they started a GenCant. It's silly fun and run on Twitter. People and game companies donate prizes and there are giveaways involved. I made this dice bag to donate this year.

   That's all of my projects I've done recently. I hope the kiddo stays healthy now so we can get back to some sort of normalcy and enjoy what's left of their summer break. What projects have you been working on? Feel free to share in the comments!
