My Little "Helper"

     I'm not sure if I should title the post "Helper" or "Hoarder."  Grace decided to help me with my latest creation--a felt food snow cone--by hoarding every single piece.  Luckily, she responded well to the trade of crayons & a coloring book that I offered during hostage negotiations.  I was able to get this prototype whipped up.  It's being sent to LucyCake Boutique down in Texas next week along with the rest of my fair food.

Felt Food Snow Cone

It makes me wish I still had my Snoopy Snow Cone machine!

     I make a lot of patterns for my felt food myself but this one was an Umecrafts pattern.  Gotta love her stuff!

Fast Food Felt Food Breakfasts

     I apologize for my lack of blogging or even facebooking with my fans.  We sold our house in Michigan (hooray!) but with that has come a slew of paperwork, etc. while we wait for a final closing date.  In addition, I have been sending boxes of felt food to photographers, which has meant time spent creating a lot of new items!

Egg Felt'Muffin Set

Is it wrong that when I see these pics I get hungry for fast food?

Bacon, Egg, Biscuit & Cheese Set

     It's exciting and I am so thankful to Heather Ashley Photography (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Heather-Ashley-Photography/155482276581) and Lavish Photography (http://www.facebook.com/pages/Lavish-Photography/200005516682013) for being willing to take this journey with me!  If you are in the Virginia/Ft. Wayne area, please check these photographers out for your family photos.  They are SO incredibly talented!  Heather just finished pics of her box of felt food and I can't wait to share them with you!

Box of food just sent to Abby at Lavish Photography last week.

      I am happy to announce that a third photographer has partnered with Felt Food Kids.  If you are near Katy, TX, check out the amazing work of LucyCake Boutique (http://www.facebook.com/LucycakeBoutique).  LucyCake specializes in product photos so if you are a fellow etsy seller be sure to check her out!
