Felt, Thy Name Is Fortune Cookie

I usually peruse Martha Stewart Living and think “Yeah, right!” Most of her recipes call for ingredients that either I can’t pronounce or can’t find in my local grocery. Her crafts, while gorgeous, aren’t exactly something I would consider “doable”. I’m not going to shear my own sheep to make wool for the festive party place settings she crafts. And I’m not going to blow my own glass bottles for a decorative centerpiece. I’m just not that crafty. So, I skim the pages and donate the latest issue to a friend.

Something in February’s issue caught my eye though. Something I thought I could easily do. Something that is too adorable for words. Check these babies out:

Sweet idea, no?

Drew Carey could hardly keep a straight face. I guess you hop up and down on it like a pogo stick on the water.

So, keep this in mind for those hard-to-shop-for people on your list. For the low, low price of $499 you too can give the gift of the Aqua Skipper.

That’s How He Rolls

We dangle cookies in front of our child instead of carrots:

Gimme that cookie!

Steady! Steady, now!

Yes, I’m a big boy!

That’s enough tricks for one day. I’m outta here!
