A Christmas goodie, I love making these and they are so pretty to give as gifts wrapped in cellophane and a pretty brown bow.
I had a work potluck a few days ago and of course brought dessert. To me it is what everyone looks forward to and it is the prettiest thing on the table usually.
I made Peppermint buttercream chocolate cupcakes, Karsyn helped bake them (picked out the flavor, added the ingredients to the bowl I measured out and stirred the ingredients together once I made sure they were all wet so no powder would fly, she also put the cupcake liners in the baking tins and added the sprinkles to the top) my workforce is well on its way to being fully trained, LOL.
I have been making a couple of quiet books slowing since before my daughter was born after I saw one my friend Brie was making for her nephew, I love all of the different pages you can make. There are a ton of ideas out there including patterns you can purchase.
I made this mobile for my sisters baby wren and never posted it. This mobile was made with a small 2" piece of wood with wooden stars glued on two sides and then my husband drilled holes for 1/2" dowels to slide through. I sanded all of the edges and left the wood natural.
We just got back from a much needed week long vacation in Maui. Being from Oregon the winters can become long and tedious with lots of grey skies so it was nice to get away to a warm sunny place.
Wet bags could be one of the best inventions ever, especially for anyone who has kids. They hold wet cloth diapers, wet swim suits, soiled clothes etc and don't let any of the "liquid" seap out to other items in a diaper bag or car etc., but boy can they get pricey! I purchase one when my daughter was born for ~$20 and it was a medium one!
I whipped up these shoe bags for our upcoming trip to Hawaii so our shoes won't get our clothes dirty. My goal on this trip is to only take a carry on....Fingers crossed. I found this great website called ONE BAG and I love everything about it. We don't travel alot, but I would like to travel more, do it more efficiently and with as minimal amount of stress as possible.
Back in October we took a family trip to LA to go to Disneyland and and visit some friends and relatives. One of my best friends is ubber crafty too and took me to the mecca of the LA Fabric Market and we had a ton of fun looking for cheap fabric. I did have to limit myself since I either had to ship it back (which adds to the expense of extra cheap fabric) or lug it back on the plane.
