Mmmm…CAKE!

So a big hobby of mine is making cakes.  Cakes are very time consuming, but I do have a lot of fun making them.  The crazier, the better.  I love a cake challenge.  The funny part is, of all the cakes I make, the ones that are hardest for me are the traditional style cake.  It makes me nervous if I can get it perfect and do it right (since [...]

Goodwill Hunting

I’ve recently started going to thrift stores to find items to make over into a more modern look.  I thought I’d start small and work my way up to furniture.  So I started with some jewelry boxes.  Here are two I’ve completed, along with a matching mirror, and then photos of another that is in progress.  I also have two more [...]

Personalized Christmas Ornaments

This year I wanted to make some ornaments as gifts, so my three year old and I set out to create some for the grandparents and some for cousins.  This entry is a quick how-to for the glitter ornaments we made. I have a list of supplies, the step by step and some photos.  Pretty easy and kid friendly (if young kids be sure to use plastic bulbs [...]

DIY Tile Coasters

This is a project I did because I had some spare tiles lying around the house.  I plan to make more sets to sell at craft shows but am going to make them from wood and use cork on the backings instead of felt.  But anyway, the process will be similar to this process, I’ll just have to cut the wood and sand it. The Process 1. Clean the [...]

Did you miss me? I missed you.

Well I haven’t posted in quite some time now, but it’s time to get back on this wagon.  I haven’t stopped crafting / caking, I’ve just stopped posting about it, so I have a lot of great posts to add in the next few weeks with how-to’s.  Here is a little preview of a few projects I’ve been working on.  Much [...]

Unicorns and Rainbows…in CAKE of course!

Every Girl’s Dream   Rainbows, Unicorns, Hearts and Bows, oh my. I recently made a cake for a 5th birthday. The theme was Unicorns. I had creative control on the cake, and was presented with the party decorations, as well as the dress material. I then came up with this cake, from those inspirations. I made the inside of the cake a rainbow [...]

DIY: On the Go Play-Set

As we sat in a restaurant last night with our almost 3 year old and 16 month old, I was reminded how I could really use something to keep these boys occupied while we wait for food. The youngest is at the stage that he’s throwing everything on the floor when he’s done, so needless to say we made friends with (they may choose different [...]

I’m TOTALLY making this!

This may be the coolest thing I’ve ever seen! I think I’ll use the phrase correctly, unlike Elissa from Big Brother 15…I’m OBSESSED!  I saw this little gem when a friend pointed out the Lowe’s Build and Grow program where your child can go in to a workshop and build their own Toy Story car, for FREE!  But anyway, [...]

It’s My Room, TAKE 2

VIEW THE GALLERY OF NAME SIGNS! **  10/11/16 — I am working on an UPDATED HOW TO for these signs.  I will be making a video and have better details/photos of the process.  I will also have links to purchase the needed supplies.  Please CHECK BACK SOON! ** So almost a year ago now I made some cute name signs to hang on each of my [...]

DIY Cupcake Picks

Today was a fun day, I got out of the house (away from kids) for a baby shower at the company I formerly worked. Having worked there 12 years before leaving to stay at home, they knew I made cakes and asked if I’d make the cupcakes for the party; I of course wanted to   They wanted a custom pick to include the baby’s nickname, Sprout, [...]
