Last week was my adorable God-daughter Ella's Spring show at, L'Heritage Francais, the little French school she attends. I bought Ella a "Spring Gift" (us God mothers invent occasions to give gifts haha) and loved the colorful gift wrapping idea I recently found over at Jordan Ferney's Oh Happy Day blog seen HERE. I thought this would be the perfect wrapping for Ella's gift. So to say that I went Yarn Happy is an understatement. I bought yarn in every color. How fun is this??
I also helped out by filling up a mason jar with yummy Oreo cookies covered in white chocolate for the fundraiser. I found Oreo molds of butterflies, bunnies, and sunflowers (perfect for Spring), filled half way with melted white chocolate, placed an Oreo, topped with more white chocolate, placed in fridge for a few minutes, lightly painted the cookies with shimmery food paints, and Voila! These cookies are so delicious and always a hit. If you live in L.A. county or Orange County, you can find everything I used HERE.
I, of course, used my happy colorful yarn to tie a tag to the jar and topped the jar with a bright flower I made of tissue paper :-)
And Ella is happy!! Love her to pieces.
