wow i just can’t seem to catch up with myself! pezza was back at the doctor yesterday and has a sinus infection so she is back on meds and will hopefully feel better tomorrow. hubby and i have also been battling allergies – that time of year – and both of us just feel drained BLECH! not fun when you have a work schedule like both of us do! needless to say i am behind and my house is a total disaster! errands and then some cleaning today i think – not fun :(
my colored pencil class on color me creative is really filling up and i am just thrilled! we had our first live chat last night and we have one every monday from 8pm – 9pm eastern time and it is open to anyone – not just students. so if you are curious about class you can come join in!
i DID manage to get a cake done for my next door neighbor’s son who turned 1. they were very pleased but i wish i had planned it out better:
the lettering and 1 on top should have been much bigger – not sure what i was thinking when i designed it but as i mentioned – i have been a bit foggy headed with allergies so that’s my story! you CAN see how perfectly they were cut though – love my Cricut Cake now that i know how to use it!
the train running along the side was from everyday paper dolls and had no detail cuts. i think if i do it again i will use some royal icing to add details if the cut i am using doesn’t have any. i thought the border was kinda cute with the little balls added.
i can tell you it DID taste devine! i just used a box cake mix – they really are so good – and my homemade buttercream frosting which everyone always loves.
what else did i do this weekend? well i have this table that has been in the corner of the powder room for years:
now i LOVE this table but it is fairly plain (as it should be if you ask hubby!) every time i go in there i try to think of what i want to do to it and then it hit me – decoupage. i just need to put the polyurethane on and find just the right drawer pull to replace the plain one and then i will show you what i did! LOVE IT!
now i am off to run my errands – heading to the mall – not somewhere i like to go but i must have someone in the tmobile store look at my phone :P
do any of you do any decoupage? if so i would love for you to let me know. i have another project idea in mind too for spring…..and by the way, anyone notice how freakin’ many mod podge options there are these days SHEESH! i would love to hear from anyone with info on the too!
have a great day!!!!
