Birthdays and Aprons too!

My grandson’s birthday party came and went really quickly. He enjoyed a visit from Elmo and opening his wonderful birthday gifts. But not only did we celebrate the 3 year old’s special day, but his mom’s too.
 My daughter-in-law’s special day is August 19th and since that will be a very busy time (she starts law school the following day), she got her birthday gifts early.

Two of the gifts I gave her were a set of aprons. I bought these blanks at Michaels and Hobby Lobby and used my Brother Embroidery Machine to make them special. These designs came from the Embroidery Library, online. My daughter-in-law is the owner of the blog “Will Cook for Smiles.” She is also participating in a photography course sponsored by Sears. Through that class she got a brand new giant grill! She loaned the “Grill It” apron to my son, but she does intend to be the “Grill Master” of the family.

Love that Elmo came for a visit! My daughter loved Elmo and Zoe when she was little.

The aprons turned out great. Thanks so much for sharing at Creative Thursday this week. Have a wonderful weekend.
