Wrapping 200 wedding mini soap favors. Its a bit job by my two hands.
I love the wedding colors: royal blue and white, just simply elegant!

Daddy is helping Justin to do his Nobody Project, picking up garbage in our neighborhood.

I accidentally broke my square plastic box couple days ago, then I found this nice, heavy-duty and BPA-free round container at Dollarama. It doesn't come with a lid, but it's still a perfect container for dough to rise once covering it with food wrap.
See how excited Daniel was! Ha Ha!
