Whoooohoooo......Two More Sales!

So exciting to report we got 2 request for diaper cakes. I am so excited to be making a cake. I started one yesterday and will have it finished sometime today as it's a customer pick-up ( a family member ) but's still a real sale:) The other one is for a co-worker of my Mother's. I think most of our diaper cake sales will come from referrals at first. One cake is going to a baby shower and the other is just a welcome home gift so hopefully others will see our work and fall in love with it. As I look at the half-completed cake on the kitchen table I am so happy with the way its turning out, its so cute.

Here is a sneak peak........................

I am not finished yet but you get the idea. I still need to make a couple burp cloths, put on the topper, and adjust the bows. The other one I am making will be brown and blue for a baby boy.

Random Scrapbooking

So I was able to make it scrapbooking yesterday with the girls. It almost didn't happen but glad it all worked out and I was able to go. As usual I didn't get much done. I starred at the same pictures and paper for like over an hour trying to think of something and nothing came to mind. I was stuck in a rut and have been for awhile. My goal is the next time we scrap is to have a plan....yeah right!

There is this new tool I wanted but the store we go to was all out. It looks really cool and I can't wait to get one and try it out......Sew Easy Stitch Piercer.

This is the tool. I think it cost about $7.99, which I think is a good price.

This is one of the different attachments you can get for it and I think these are $2.99

It looks kinda neat and it's better than getting the sewing machine out and will add a lot to your pages.

I went to bed thinking of page layouts and designs. I have so much to do and catch up on. I have lots of pages that need some finishing touches like adding embellishments and journaling. Ryan says I can get one page done a day if I really wanted to, so that's what I am going to try and do. Well maybe not one page a day but maybe a few a week. I think this is the second time I have said this. This week I need to kick it in gear and get the bathrooms cleaned, house dusted, and a few other things done that why I can work on some pages. It's hard for me to do extra things like scrapbooking when I know I have other things that are more important waiting to be done.

OK....let's see if I can do this.

My Valentine's Day Card

So my husband and I really don't do Valentine's Day gifts. We rarely even do birthday gifts for each other and haven't done Christmas gifts since before we had kids. We have been together for almost 15 years and married for almost 5, maybe that has something to do with it. But we do always get each other cards. This is the card I got for Valentine's Day....I thought it was funny and wanted to share with you;)

I hope everyone had a great Valentine's Day!

Crazy Quiet Over Here.....

Ok........This rarely happens in our crazy house but it is unusually quiet right now. Cameron told daddy that he wanted to go to baseball with him today. My husband is an assistant varsity baseball coach and practice has started up once again and Cameron gets to go sometimes and today was one of those days. And then the little guy has been napping for what seems like forever. I can't remember the last time he took a nap this long but I know he will be waking up shortly. He better or else he will never go to bed tonight. So for now I am enjoying some peace and quiet because come a couple hours when Cameron gets home there will be no more quiet time;)

GO PACK GO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

So excited the Packers won the Superbowl. I think I am more excited for my husband. Both of our teams won the Championship this year. The Giants won the World Series and now the Packers won the cool is that? And how often does that happen, both your teams winning the Championship?!

We went to Ryan's friends house, his golfing buddy from work who just happens to be a die hard Steelers fan, for a little party. And of course we all showed up in Packers gear. It was a fun day of eating and watching the game.

The victory picture;)
