Late last night as I was working on making more bows and goodies for the craft fair I will participating in this weekend and ended up empting several spools of ribbon. I had stacked them up and an idea popped into my head! I could make a stackable cake for Dominic with these!! Today while working on a few more craft fair projects I took a break by making my son that cake I thought of last night. I gathered up a few sizes of empty ribbon spools and dipped into my scrap fabric stash and found some Camo, John Deere and Green (all Dominic's favorite things).

My Son's grandmother came across a cute kitchen set a lady was giving away for free. We picked it up and cleaned it up and brought it inside for him to "cook" while Mommy cooks lunch and dinner. Dominic absolutely loves his new kitchen. I looked around for some plates and goodies to let him play with and came up with a few mini pots and pans I honestly never use. I then grabbed my box of felt and foam and starting making him up some foods to cook in his new kitchen. I found tons of cute patterns online but nearly all of them were sewing projects and truth be told that is just not a possibility with an impatient 2 yr old and Mommy's limited free time. I then set my craft mind to the task and starting making foods with the felt and hot glue!! I love my glue gun, of course as online boutique owner (check it out on facebook: www.facebook.com/creationbyshelli) I use my glue gun every single day so I was right at home with coming up with a non sew project. We had just had breakfast for dinner the night before so I used that as my inspiration and created Dominic some fried eggs, bacon and pancakes. I actually think they turned out great!
