It's funny, but when I started this blog I had every intention of posting all sorts of marvelous creations.
Then I started talking about the trials and tribulations of being a mom, being a writer, being a lunch lady.
And this blog became a little bit more true to my life.
Just the way I like it.
Today's featured craft is a paint can that I altered into a New Aunt Survival kit for a fellow writer friend of mine who was over the moon excited about the arrival of her first niece.
The babies are from the New Arrival cricut cartridge and the faces are peachykeen stamps. I just love, love, love her stamps!
It says and contains:
Cotton Balls...to offer to your brother and sister-in-law when they can’t hear themselves think.
Goldfish cookies to remember to splash and sing!
Candy...to remind you that every child can be sweet (and a little sour).
Kisses...plenty to give and receive
Puzzle Piece...to remind you that you are an important piece in the journey of your niece
Marbles...to replace the ones you’re sure to lose
Band-Aid...to fix all of life’s little hurts
Dum Dums...to remind you to laugh...and be a little silly
Chapstick - to help your family lick any problem that comes their way
Nail Polish - to remember to get a little girly now and then
Aspirin...for when all else fails...take two
Peppermint...to remind you that your job as Aunt is worth a mint.
Congrats on your sweet new niece!

I use my blog to make others laugh, to share some cool crafts, to document my lunchlady adventures and to lament about the challenges faced by us all on the journey called life. Thanks for visiting. Please leave some crack...um...I meant some comments.
