well, I'll let the cat out of the bag...

So this past weekend's baby shower went great. It's always fun to catch up with the girls. Baby Holden has gotten so big..hard to believe he was only five pounds the last time I saw him.

I got my carrot cake with cream cheese frosting all made and decorated. It was a hit and I didn't even have to bring any home!

Sarah got a ton of neat things! She had a huge load to haul home!

So remember how I've been super distant from blogging, real tired, and not accomplishing a whole lot?? Well, there is a big reason! Travis and I are expecting a baby!! I'm so excited, nervous, happy, impatient, and thrilled all at the same time. I'm two months along and am still in for quite a wait. So far my pregnancy has been a good one. Just a lot of exhaustion and head aches. We are so excited for the new addition to our family! I've really been wanting to share it with you all for some time now, but figured I would wait til I couldn't wait anymore. Only 4 more weeks till I'm out of my 1st trimester..seems so far away, but I'm sure time will fly!!

finished party stuff...

I finished a couple decorations for my friends baby shower. I wanted something that she could use and something she could hang on to. Since her baby room is done in Classic Pooh I thought of doing the cute penant banner in that theme, but also adding Holden's name. I think it actually turned out a lot better than I thought it would. Sometimes I don't have such high hopes for myself!

I think the diaper cake also turned out quite cute! It was super easy to do and what new mom couldn't use the diapers after the party? I didn't add any baby toys to the cake, but figured less is more in this case.

Tomorrow night I have a cake to make, and friday one to decorate...I hope to post some pictures of the finished product!

long time gone...

Sorry it has been so long since my last blog. I've been busy working on some orders and overcome by exhaustion! Thank you for your sweet comments on the pin cushion. I hope to do some more of them for some of you other blog friends! They work great when I have leftover scraps from purses or quilts, so hopefully I will keep them coming!

Here is a purse I finished for an order for a little girl. I don't know the girl, but I did know that she loved purple, so I threw a dash of pink in just to break up some of the purple overload.

This week I will be busy planning for a baby shower, but I will post some of my creations for that.

here's to you...

I have taken a little break for a while since I've been so famished! Now I'm back to the swing of things and have been working on some purses and other projects. I thought I would share this with you all. My love for pincushions grow daily, and I made this guy especially for Andi, since she posted this. I just couldn't resist. I wanted to find some fun lip fabric, but no luck. This is going in the mail on monday, so be on the look Andi!
