I'M BAD......

I know, I have been very sloppy about posting, but hey, I finally decided to bite the bullet and dive back in.  I have been spending a lot of time working on my projects for the craft show this summer.  I also worked on a very special 3D birthday cake for my niece (she turned 50).  And in betwwen have done some cleaning around the house and helping Dick with some of his projects.  I have about one more week and then I have to start getting the 5th wheel ready for camping season.  Things have been getting back to normal since last September.  My daughter, Kellie, has finally gotten her divorce and hopefully she can get on with her life with her daughters.  I know lots of people who have already been through this but it is different when it is your own child.  I have nothing but praise for her in dealing with this and proud of how stronger she is today.

Okay, enough.  I will first show you the Birthday cake I made for my niece.  It was a lot of fun to make and the first time I have attempted something this challenging.  Now remember, cakes can sometimes be a little crooked and lopsided (like this is...LOL). 



 Well, what do you think? My niece loved it and I was hoping she wouldn't so I could get it back (hehe). No I am proud that she likes it and will have be change the number each year....

Now I will show you one of the crafts I have completed for my craft sale.

I had soooo much fun doing these.  I used the containers I already had (they were filled with lots of neat SU candy).  I ordered 2 more pkgs. on my last order just in case they are a hot item at the sale.
If you click on each photo it will be larger and you can see the details better.

Well, I better get this posted and I will return soon with more items for you to see.  Have a super weekend and keep smiling.
