FO Friday: Sunshine and Rainbows for Blythe

Sometimes in the Blythe Swap group I co-admin, someone’s package doesn’t come through for some reason, and we find someone to put together a make-up package. I recently did this for someone and I had a lot of fun putting it together!

Angel Swap: Sunshine and Rainbows

The entire time I was working on this swap, I had the song, “Sunshine, Lollipops, and Rainbows” running through my head. Of course, mostly in the voice of Chief Wiggum, though clearly Lesley Gore is preferable to have on a loop (also, THAT SWEATER).

The recipient for this swap likes cupcakes and cute things, so it was a natural fit for the swap theme.

She doesn’t care for super short skirts, so I chose to knit a knee-length skirt. I still made two mini-dresses but kept them fairly modest, and then made two longer-skirted fancy dresses as well. I added some rainbow and sunshine-themed accessories and fun goodies to round out the package. I’m quite happy to report that the recipient was as pleased with this package as I was! šŸ™‚


Salad as a Meal

Salad as a Meal You don’t win friends with salad, but with this book you might find that you have some satisfying options for using up all the lettuce growing in your garden. There are a lot of salads here that will satisfy meat-eaters, but there are a number of vegetarian options, too, and best of all most of the recipes include just a handful of ingredients, so they’re realistic as well as mouth-watering. My post over at CPL has more.
