Thank you every one.
Onyxnox, she will this year. She already owned some HP ornaments and after she received the HP floating books ornaments, she decided to buy a second Christmas tree in last year after Christmas sales to have an entirely HP tree. Her other tree is a Disney tree.
I am giving it to her tomorrow as an early Christmas present so she can decorate her HP Christmas tree this weekend.

They all are very pretty, the brass-plated candle stick one looks so regal, I like the purple tree and bow, my favorite is the green one with the snowflakes.

Good job to your husband and you, of course. Your daughters are going to love it, pretty, practical and made with love.

8  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Easter Peeps Diorama Contest on: April 02, 2018 02:21:17 PM
Once again we had an Easter Peeps Diorama contest in the family. I helped my granddaughters with their Peeps Diorama entries because I am not comfortable letting them use the hot glue gun and the sewing machine yet.

My Peeps Diorama entry:
Verona, Italy
O Peepeo, Peepeo! wherefore art thou Peepeo?

Granddaughter 1 Peeps Diorama.
The Count of Peep Cristo (her own idea).

Granddaughter 2 Peeps Diorama
The Princess and the pea.

Working with peeps was a temptation for any sugar craving 7 years old kid  Cheesy This is what happen  Cheesy

The winner was my daughter in law with her Stranger Things Peeps Diorama (Stranger Things is a science fiction-horror Netflix series).

9  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Re: Unicorn Cascarones 2018 on: April 02, 2018 01:54:34 PM
The Unicorn Cascarones were a big success! My granddaughters had lots of fun smashing them with their baby godsister and the baby's parents and grandparents were very gracious and grateful I made a First Easter Cascaron souvenir for her.
10  OCCASIONS AND HOLIDAYS / Easter / Unicorn Cascarones 2018 on: March 30, 2018 11:26:03 AM
These are my 2018 cascarones for my granddaughters, pretty unicorns filled with bird seed.

It has been lots of fun planning and making Cascarones for 5 years now, it started as a fun activity for the girls (Cascarones is not a Cuban Easter tradition) that have evolved into an Easter tradition fot them. Every Easter my granddaughters smash the Cascarones with their godmother.
This year they will be sharing the fun with their 6 months old godsister, thats why the production increased to 30 cascarones, one dozen for each of my granddaughters and 6 for their baby godsister.

I also made a preserved unicorn cascaron glass bell jar for the baby as a souvenir of her first Easter. I am hoping will be meaningful gift, as the smashing of the cascarones is a childhood tradition of her mom. The egg was sterilized and kept hollow to kill and prevent any potential bacteria.

Now, to plan for next year Cascarones! =)
Happy Easter!
