For noise makers at cake time, I bought plain blue and plain yellow party blowers at the dollar store and then came home and Google imaged faces for Cookie Monster and Big Bird. I copied them over to a Word document, made them tiny, then copied a bunch of them and printed them out. I cut around them, taped them onto the blowers, and presto! Adorable on-theme blowers.
Front Street and Cowboy Museum, Ogallala, Nebraska. I spent an amazing summer working at Front Street. Waiting tables in the restaurant during the day, singing in the show at night, swimming at the lake on my days off.
