This table is from my brother's high school graduation last year. It's not a very close picture, but you can sort of see the cakes. My sisters and I made those with my grandmother. They were a hit.

Since this is going to be a blog about my adventures in the world of crafts, I want to show off some of the things that I've made in the past. I will most likely do this in spurts since most of the things I have made have been given to other people. Whenever I can get around those things and take pictures I will try to add them to "Projects Past".
The picture able is of my first attempt at writing in frosting. I had a little bit of trouble with the early part of "Congratulations", but I finally got the hang of it. It isn't the most beautiful cake ever, but my boss loved it at her retirement party. I plan on practicing a lot before the next time I try to do something like this.
This is a quilt that I made for my little sister for her High School graduation. (Or at least that was the plan...) I finally got it to her at the beginning of her junior year of college, but I did get it finished. Since she had so many t-shirts I decided not to use any sashing and just sew the blocks together. This is only the second quilt that I have made, so I don't think it looks too bad.
I made this cake with my mom at Easter time. The little lamb never quite got a face or the rest of his coconut fur. He was eaten before that could happen. Overall, I was just happy that the ears and the head stayed on.
This post just gives an overview of some of the things I have done and hopefully I will be able to share a little more soon.
Since I have actually finished my Master's project (finally!) I have had a little more time to be creative. One of my co-workers introduced me to a blog, bakerella.blogspot.com, and she was making the cutest things. I decided that I wanted to make my own version of her creations. Since graduation was right around the corner, I decided to run with that theme. I took a couple of the ideas she gave on the blog and made them in to these...
Be sure to check out http://www.bakerella.blogspot.com/ to see all of the cute ideas that she has. They're adorable!
