A Little Help For My Friend

Last Friday Monster's bestie is having her third birthday party.


Her mommy enlisted The Cuban Cowboy to help out a bit
by drawing up a poster board size Hello Kitty
for a game of 

Too cute!!!

And here it is in action.

It was wonderful to see everything in full effect,
especially since I helped my friend with some cutting and pasting and general crafting.

I love a good kids party.

Oh yeah, and to go along with the theme, 
I whipped this baby up a few days before the party.

I was inspired by Pinterest, but had to hunt down a good tutorial.
I found this AWESOME one at Made by K.

I love that the red yarn has gold sparkles through it.
It will be perfect for the holiday season,
while it also matches the parties decor.

I will say that I am not wholly satisfied with the face. 
It is much harder than I thought, 
but I just didn't have the patience to keep redoing it.

In the end  . . .
great gifts are handmade,
and that is all that matters.

I hope that you all had a wonderful Veteran's Day last week.
I know that mine was full of Hello Kitty fun 
followed by an evening of BUNCO.

What more could a gal ask for?

  1. I think the party pictures look like everyone had a ton of fun, and the Kitty scarf is darling.

    I lived for a time in the late 80s in Hiroshima Japan and there was a HK store across the street from me. But at that age I was "too cool" to like "children's things". Man, was I dumb!
