Welcome to my new blog that I have titled "le mie cose favorite" which is Italian for "My Favorite Things". I have many interests and I was looking for a place in which to record my many interests: my children, scrapbooking, crafting, cake decorating, technology, music, baking and my new life-style of being Gluten-Free. I hope someone is able to learn from my mistakes and accomplishments as I am learning more about each of my hobbies.
My sister completed the Fort4Fitness half marathon last weekend. We are very proud of her! So is her husband. Monday evening he called me about how to make a shadowbox using her marathon memorabilia. I told him that if he would get me the stuff, I would put it together for him. I've only helped make one other shadowbox and I don't think I am the best at making them. Of course, I couldn't get any inspiration until Friday evening when I was baking the Cars cake (at 8 PM). It was a very late night!
Here's what I came up with:
Includes pictures, medal, bib, statistics and a gold plate with the date and time.
