In this video presentation, you will be introduced to a party favor project using the Birthday Memories suite. My neighbor and I created the party favors, card and banner in honor of my Mother’s 85th birthday celebration. The party favor bags were stamped using Basic Black, Real Red or Pacific Point ink. The balloons were stamped and colored using the water color pencils or stamp markers. The other embellishments were cut out of dsp and attached using foam adhesives.

My Mom’s Baton Twirling Days

My Mom grew up on a farm in a small town in North Dakota. She had never seen a baton twirler until the 5th grade. Her teacher’s sister came to the school and performed for the students. My Mom was so inspired that she that she taught herself how to twirl a baton using a broom stick. She didn’t perform in public but many people who visited the farm saw her twirling the broom stick. My grandparents couldn’t afford to buy her a baton. One day, a baton was delivered from a music store in Minot and to this day, my Mother doesn’t know who it was from. She used it all the time and never had any formal training. During high school, she performed at basketball games. In her Senior year, she taught a class of 75 students from 1st grade through high school. The class was Acrobatics and Baton Twirling. The group was selected to perform at the district basketball championships. After high school, my Mom worked for the state. The Lyceum Program representatives visited her former high school with a performer. The janitor there said that they needed to see my Mother perform. They went out to the farm and asked her to perform. They were so impressed that they took a video of her and entered it into a contest. She was selected to lead the World’s Largest Band Festival in Macon City, Iowa. That summer, she gave over 100 performances. My Mom went from a broomstick to becoming an award-winning majorette, leading marching bands and parades. We are all very proud of her and I was so happy to be able to capture some of this magic through crafting.

  1. Thanks Tina. I just learned about these things from my Mom. I heard bits and pieces before but I finally asked her the whole story. Then, when I decided to write it down, I had to interview her like a reporter to fill in the details. I was so impressed.
