Passport Case

A friend of mine is traveling through Canada in about a month so I made him this to hold his passport.

I am still a bit worried that it is too feminine for him even though he assured me it is not. There are more pictures on my flickr here and here. Detail pictures here and here.

I will be taking suggestions from the comments section. If you have an idea, please leave a comment. If you have lots of ideas please leave lots of comments. In the next week or so I will decide what i will be making and let you know. Then in the week or two following that I will make whatever it is and tell you all about it.

Thank you in advance. I look forward to everyone's ideas.

Sunday Sundae Sunday.

Sunday is national ice cream day, thank you Ronald Regan.
ice creamI will be celebrating this weekend by eating as much ice cream as I can before I cough.*

Note: I tried taking pictures of some ice cream, but it is hot here and the ice cream melted too quickly. Instead you can enjoy the above drawing i made.

*My Great Uncle's family had a rule that you could eat as little or as much ice cream as you wanted, but as soon as you coughed you were done.

Happy 233rd Birthday!

cupcakeI made these yummy cupcakes to celebrate Independence Day. They are white cake plus red and blue food coloring and are quite yummy. My favorite part of the cupcakes are the liners, they remind me of spin art.
