This past week started off slow, well slow for posting. It was crazy busy for my blog layout though. I redesigned my header, background and buttons. But when I went to put them on the blog it totally messed up my layout, my sidebars and post titles went all out of whack, and no matter what I did I couldn’t fix them! So time for a new theme! What do you guys thing? And don’t forget to change out my buttons if you have one!
I finally got it all fixed and got some posts up. No crafts this week but some fun notices. First up I was totally honored to get asked to make the cakes for the two runner up’s for a photo contest (so go enter) for a new local magazine! Next I FINALLY got my post up for the Ruby Snap cookie tasting party I got to attend a few weeks ago. Seriously amazing cookies! Then Monday I tell you about the guest mad libs spot I got to do for Emily at Is this REALLY my life?. Hopefully this year I’ll get a recipe or craft up!
So it’s past time to announce the winners of my name my stuff contest up! But I had a crazy busy weekend as well as a crazy next few days, so the plan is to do it Wednesday! So come back and check it out!
On to the features…
What an adorable crayon cake! I never would have thought about using a cone for a crayon top! It’s perfect isn’t it? I love finding new cake shapes, themes and ideas. All my kids are artists and I have added an art theme birthday party to my list of to do themes.
It’s too late for me to start this with my own children, but what a fun idea! Framed progressive hand-prints of your kids! She picked out homemade paper and traced her twins hands every few months then years until they were 5. SUCH a fun idea. I was thinking this would look pretty amazing in 3D layers as well.
I have ton’s of yarn, but it’s such a pain to work with sometimes. I love this yarn storage! Imagine how pretty this could look with a ton of different colors too! I’m imagining a shelf of rainbows… Now I need jars, and a shelf!
So there you have it, some of the features from last week. Don’t forget to take a button if you were featured (even if you were featured before because I have NEW buttons.
Don’t forget to grab a NEW button for you blog somewhere and I can’t WAIT to see what you’ve all been up to this week! And once again PLEASE please PRETTY please, take the dang music OFF your blogs. We all hate it, we really do, so turn it off!
