Maybe that should be the name of this blog: Better Late Than Never. It seems like projects are still flying out the door and baking is still coming out of the oven, but nothing is making it onto camera and being blogged.
You know what they say... if it didn't happen on the Internet, it didn't happen.
Case in point: Homecoming, 2014. Was this in September already? Daisy Duke called on game day with a fun idea. She wanted to surprise her Texas-born boyfriend with a Texas-style homecoming mum at the big game. That's not really a tradition up here.
At least she knew who to call.
It's really not a "traditional" homecoming mum, but Saucy had a couple of these funky Huskie hats on hand from Dollarama on the off-chance someone wanted to wear one to a game. The hat fit perfectly over a 9" round cardboard cake board. It was pretty quickly hole punched for ribbons and a neck strap.
Like The Secret Weapon before her, Saucy prides herself on the fact that the craft room/studio is equipped to come up with stuff like this at the drop of a hat. LITERALLY. The drop of a fuzzy Huskie mascot hat!
Scraps of ribbon from cheerleading days and scrapbooking letters added the finishing touches along with pipe cleaners, crafty pom poms, felt flowers and metal player initials. A few cupcake toppers even made it into the mix.
Saucy feels badly for not sharing this sooner. She also has two outstanding Cheerio photo shoots from late summer and a few cookie recipes. She sort of feels like making Valentine cookies to serve at Christmas because at the rate she's going, they'd make it on the blog at about the right time.
