some custom crowns

I haven't done custom crowns in awhile, but I always love the challenge when someone wants me to do so. A lovely lady requested that I make two coordinating crowns for her two sons, and they were going to go with a birthday party based on a particular book. Can anyone tell me what book inspired these crowns?

We had a pretty funny Sunday. You see, we go to church about an hour away from where we live, and when we got to church, Ben realized that he forgot his shoes! Ha! To top it all off, he was the service leader for our Sunday gathering. Despite this hilarious mistake, praise God that the situation didn't deter him and he led Sunday service just fine (thanks be to God) bare feet and all (here's proof)! After which, we skidaddled to the nearest Rite Aid to pick him up some cheap flips flops. Then, we went our merry way to do some vintage clothing hunting. I came out with some goodies for myself for just a buck, but it was a bust to find anything for Ben! I guess it just wasn't his luck on Sunday.

How was your weekend? Have any funny stories that might trump the story of Ben forgetting his shoes for church?!!

  5. Beautiful crowns, and thanks for sharing Ben's funny story. My weekend was pretty calm (I got to donate a huge bag of clothes that I don't wear anymore at church, which felt really good!). Happy Monday!

  8. haha! I believe it! With TWO kids sometimes I end up somewhere important without something important so I can imagine getting three little girls dressed and out the door can keep you on your toes! no pun intended.

    ha!

    what a sport to not be too embarrassed to lead anyway.

  18. Where the Wild Things Are! Yea! Did you ever see the movie? It made me sad and tainted my own imagination of the story:( Anyway...funnnny about Ben forgetting his shoes - gotta love a church when you can show up despite them though:) Did he make a clever analogy about it, using the negative to drive home a HUGE positive lesson? That'd be cool! Have a great week!!!
