Daddy-o's Birthday!

This weekend went by too fast!
It was a fun one! My dad's birthday was great! I held off on showing you his gifts because he looks at my blog every day - because he's the BEST! Now that he has his gifts you can see them!
His first gift is from Nuevowoodcraft on etsy!
My dad plays the guitar and is a wood worker, so these hand carved wooden guitar picks were perfect!! I highly recommend this esty seller - super helpful and super quick!
For awhile now my dad has asked for a handmade shop apron. Something heavy duty to use in his workshop! I had the perfect Japanese guitar fabric which is thick canvas!
Now he has a heavy duty apron with pockets! I think he was pretty stoked!
I made a cheesecake, but...... it was strange tasting and very flat. It looked more like flan.
I'm not to sure what I did wrong! My uncle still ate some, he said it was like eating custard. I don't like custard, so......I didn't like the cheesecake! whompwhomp ;)
Any ideas on why it was so thin?
How was your weekend? Did you make anything awesome!?
Put the link to your projects in the comments!

It may just have been the recipe. If you want a really thick/tall cheesecake, look for a recipe that is New York style cheesecake. I'll look around for my hubby's cheesecake recipe and email it to you. It's a winner...and super good!

That is so cute that you made your dad an apron :) LOVE IT! I'm going to ask my sister about her cheesecake recipe, she makes mini cheesecakes (cupcake sized) and they are pretty tall/firm so I'll get back with you on that!

I ordered my free business cards from SonicPrint! I can't wait to get them, they're super cute. :)

ooo, i love those wooden guitar picks. Is the sound quality different with the wood picks than the plastic ones?

erica1228 said...

Cute apron too! I've been wondering how to make a more masculine one (:

Carrie said...

I love the last picture too! Love the apron and the picks :)

I don't like custard either. I will get a recipe from my mom and email it to you! I love her cheesecake...especially the chocolate chip cheesecake! SO GOOD!!

You do look adorable in that last picture!!

What a bummer your cheesecake didn't turn out how you wanted. I am sure it was the recipe and not you, not everyone is a winner unfortunately!
Happy belated birthday to your Dad! I love the workshop apron you made him, the colours of the fabric are great!

Illustrated Ink said...

Hee, hee, your Dad looks too cute in his apron! Those guitar pics are lovely, I'm going to have to check out that Etsy shop.

I'm sorry your cheesecake didn't turn out as you'd wanted. :( If I had a $1 for every time that happened to me...I love the pic of you with it, though!

cb said...

those are some really great guitar picks! your dad is a lucky man to have such a sweet and thoughtful daughter like you!

oh and those would make some cute earrings too just drill a little hole up top and your done!


Joan said... sweet of you. but you migt have forgotten the yeast for the cake! It still look delicious though!

Holly Knitlightly said...

It sounds like your dad had a great birthday! Those guitar picks are awesome. I think I need to pick some up for my boyfriend... haha. And can I say how freaking CUTE you look in that photo of you with the cheesecake?! SO CUTE!
