Mickey Mouse Night Light

I would like to start by saying Thank You to everyone for your Condolences and Thoughts. I apologize for not responding yet. As I’m sure you can imagine, life is a little chaotic right now and being on our WordPress site, let alone posting is sporadic at best right now.

Yesterday, however, I said screw everything and “played” Cricut. I needed an escape for the day and crafting seemed the best route. I did a few Easter crafts for my beautiful little granddaughter and this night light for my grandson, who should be making his grand entrance within the month! Thankfully during this stressful time we do have something wonderful to look forward to!

I made my pattern in Design Space. Doing a Mickey Mouse head is pretty simple considering it is basically made of circles.

I started with one big circle. I added a square big enough to cover half of the circle and then used the slice feature to cut my circle in half. I separated the pieces, kept what I needed and made the bottom half red. I added the two smaller black circles for Mickey’s ears, and two really small white circles for the little dots on the red half circle.

I used one of the Disney fonts for Greydon’s name and then cut everything out with my Cricut.

I adhered all of the pieces to the little LED night light I picked up from the dollar store and now I have a cute little night light as part of the gift for when he’s finally born ❤!!!

50th Birthday T-Shirt – Cricut Project

I would first like to start by first thanking everyone for your well wishes. I am starting to feel better and hopefully will be back to blogging on a regular basis soon. That leads to the second part of this paragraph… I would like to apologize for the very sparse blogging. I hope to remedy that once I feel better!

This week Chris turns 50, and can finally stop bugging me about being old lol! Since I am a whole 2 1/2 years older than him, he bugs me incessantly about being “old!” He doesn’t want an actual party, but we had a nice lunch with Kim and Scarlyt (my granddaughter)…. it was so nice to see them, and even better to get a whole bunch of grandbaby hugs and playtime! I was getting worried there for a while that we were going to have to put it off for a while because of how sick I have been. Thankfully I am not contagious!!!

Back to Chris and his 50th birthday. As I said, he didn’t want a birthday party, so I made a nice pot of everyone’s favourite potato soup, some cheese and crackers (Scarlyt LOVES crackers) and as per a very big hint from Chris… a Dairy Queen Ice Cream Cake lol! I will still make his Favourite Cake on his actual birthday but he really, really likes ice cream cakes so it was a ice treat!

Now back to this T-Shirt. I found this pattern on Etsy. I had seen a lot of different ones with different years on Pinterest so I started looking for the year Chris was born. Once I bought the pattern and had a good look at it, I realized I probably could have made it myself in Design Space… but time, illness and just plain tiredness at this point made that impossible, so I bought the pattern.

It took a few days of weeding again because of the above mentioned hurdles, but I am happy with the T-Shirt and hope Chris will be as well once I give it to him!

After all that… .here is his shirt!
