Little Itty Bitty Favors for Baby Shower

Greetings all!!! It's already Thursday! I'm so excited because tonight, myself and the One Love Music Ministry is teaming up with the little kids choir (One Love Notes), and performing/singing at Ala Moana Center Stage tonight, at 7pm. If you're available, come and check us out and support us. It is a perfect opportunity for us to share about Christ.

Ok, let's talk about yesterday. My little one stayed home again, he's still sick. This is getting so sad to have to see him be so sick. I am praying in the Name of Jesus that he is healed!!! The coughing is just going on and on and on. But I guess it is a lingering cough, but really not sick anymore? I'm not sure. The hacking sure makes him sound sick. Anyways, may be picking up more meds to help this boy. Please continue to keep him in prayer, and also for my hubby n' I, that we don't get sick as well.

So yesterday, I was scheduled for my nails to get done. I was a little nervous because the nail lady I had for the last 10 years or so had gone and moved to Florida. So, I was meeting with a new tech!! I left the house, and saw on the way to the nail salon, this beautiful rainbow starting to form. It's half a rainbow!! :) Doesn't it look like it's coming out of nowhere and going nowhere?? Anyways, as I am driving, the closer I get to the overpass - you can see in in the pic, the light turns yellow. So I slow down, and stop. 3 seconds later, guess what?? I am bumped in the back by a City Bus!!!! Dangit!! I was shocked to think, what happen there?? Did I just get bumped by a bus? I look behind, and sure enough the driver is aware of his error. But we're at the light, so I didn't wanna get out. I figure I will drive up a little further, and turn into the bus station just a couple of lights away. So that is what I did. I get out of my truck and take a look at my back. Absolutely NOTHING was damaged. Praise God!!!! I was so relieved. Thank You, Lord that nothing was damaged, and that I was driving my truck and not my other car. Because I am sure that car would've been damaged. I hugged the driver, and we were on our merry way. He was relieved that he didn't have to write up a report, or that a report didn't need to be written up on him. I don't know what was going on, I asked him if he fell asleep at the wheel. He said, "no, the brakes on this thing". I think he thought I was going to run the yellow. I'm sure he probably thought I should've ran the yellow. LOL. But I didn't... and that's how he bumped me. But, like I said, nothing was wrong, so Praise God that I got to continue on my way to my nail appointment.

But get this... I get to my nail salon, and the person I am scheduled with, Tammy, already is working on a customer. WHAAAAAT???? The boss lady looks at her appointment book, and is puzzled. "You call yesterday?"... "Yes", I said... "You talk to ME??", "Yes"... again, "You talk to ME??"... LOL... "Yes... scheduled with Tammy"... pause... "But if there is anyone else that is available, and good, then I will try them out... "Yes, I let you go with Tony, he is good.." I say, "almost as good as Lena?"... she say, "oh, just as good". Ok, I bought.... Tony it is. Tony worked on my toes like a champ. I tell ya, my feet need a lot of tender loving care. LOL.... He even trimmed off the wild little hairs that were growing on my toes. My feet was very nice n' soft afterwards. And he even went with the design that I wanted. I don't usually take pics of my foot, and post on the web, but these are beautiful n' like i said, the hairs were taken cared of. Thank You, Tony!!!!
Tony then worked on my nails. He first removed all the previous gel coating that I had, because he wanted to match the powder look on all my nails. He said he wasn't going to charge me for it. Ok, that's good. :) The results were beautiful, and elegant. Just what I was looking for, and wanted. I love when techs will listen to what you want, and complete the task. I think he did a really good job, my nail isn't too thick, which I am used to, because Lena would make them thick for my cleaning hands. But I think this'll work. But the true test will come when I see how long this lasts. I don't like it lasting too short, and I believe that my nails should be perfect and pretty at least for a month n' a half.

 On to the little itty bitty favors I was talking about yesterday. I made 30 of these for my girlfriend's daughter's "baby welcoming". Her daughter was visiting from Alaska, and this was the first time they were meeting their granddaughter. She invited all of her girlfriends, and I was so blessed that she included me. It was truly a sweet gesture. All of her girlfriends jumped in and decided to cook, decorate n' just allowed the Lord to use us to create a beautiful gathering for her n' her family. I made these favors. filled them with 2 peppermint, and bamm! I was done!!!  You can see in the 2nd pic a penny, so you can see how small this favor box is. :)

Here are all the favors lined up on her piano. The SVG cut that I used for this project was a candy box from So happy that they were so easy to cut and assembling them was such a sinch. :)

Here is a pic of myself with my girlfriend, Riza and her granddaughter. Of couse, her GD is crying, because she wants to be in MY arms. LOL....

Well, before I end this post, wanted to let ya know that I have a new challenge going on. Prayerfully I will be able to host this challenge for the coming months. It is a challenge to simply share your created projects or the photo subject of the day. It's strictly all for fun, and no prizes included. Just to have a great time with what you "envision" as the theme. It's a daily challenge, so I hope you will come and play along!!!!  You can find the daily themes on the previous post, or on the sidebar of my blog.

 Thanks for visiting n' letting me share about my day n' project. Ta-ta for now!!!
