My daughter Victoria is turning 16 on February 14th, Valentines Day. I can hardly believe it, time has just flown by. Soon she will be driving.
Because my husband still has not found a full time Job from being laid off almost 2 years ago we can not have a Sweet 16 party for her. This makes me sad but she is ok with it.  

 I took her to the mall yesterday and was able to get her Ugg boots. We found the pair she wanted and she is thrilled. I was able to do this only because I have sold quite a few scarves to friends and co-workers. I  thank God for them every day. We also got her a Free Hugs bracelet from Hot Topic and a Perry the Platypus hat from Wal-mart. 
On Valentine's Day we plan to use coupons and take her and the family out to dinner to Red Lobster. My parents are joining us for the celebration.
We also decided she could have 5 girlfriends sleep over next Saturday.... So all in all I think she will have a nice birthday...
I thought it would be fun to make the girls crocheted cupcake favors. I started them yesterday. I added a lot of rice to the bottom to help it stand correctly and weigh it down. I am not sure if I like how the bottoms turned out, maybe a bit fat, but they aer all made and the rice has been inserted, just waiting for the tops. 
Here are a few pictures of the cupcakes in progress..... I will post more when they are done and of course the party.
The different colored yarn I am using. I am making 7 in total...
The fat ( I think) cupcake bases filled with rice to help balance the finished cupcake.
 These are the materials I am using to make the cupcakes, yarn and rice.
Picture of 2 finished cupcakes, 5 more to go! I also added a hanger to the top of the cherry in case they want to hang it. This can always be cut off if they don't want it. 
Gotta run and go pick up my husband form work, watch the Super Bowl, listen to some yelling and eat some good food!!! The girls went to a Super Bowl party with their youth group!!!
Life is good! :) 


Peace, love♥, and crochet... Debbie
