I've been away for a while...

I just realized yesterday that I haven't posted to the blog in about a year...I guess I might not be cut out for blogging. Anyway, I have been making a few things since I last posted. Here are a few of the those things:

I made this business card holder when I visited my sister in Fayetteville, NC. There is the cutest pottery painting shop in their historic downtown.

Emily made a ring holder.

Emily's friend Katie made a soap pump as a present for her mom. Emily made other things at this shop during her stay in NC. She's a talented painter!

I decided I would dress up for Halloween in 2009. I didn't know what I wanted to "be", but I knew I didn't want to wear one of the "I'm not wearing anything" costumes. I ran across one of my vintage patterns and an apron that my grandmother had made and my costume was decided. I was a 1950's housewife. All I needed was a fresh-baked something to take out with us...

Anne Marie had most of her costume already, but she wanted a headpiece to go with it. I made the headpiece and veil from a pattern. I think it goes well with her dress!

In January we hosted a shower for Barbara, one of my co-workers. I made the giraffe cake, cupcakes and mints for the shower.

As part of her gift I made a diaper cake. The little koala on top was SO soft! I almost kept him for myself...I have more pictures to post, but I am running out of time. I will try to get back to posting in the next couple days.
