The Girl is Crafty Like Ice is Cold!

I'm a little manic when it comes to crafty things.  I get a notion to start on some sort of creative endeavor and throw myself headlong into it with little regard to anything else. 

Like, cleaning my house. 

Or feeding my kids.

(Kidding.  Er, sort of). 

Anyway, this past weekend, we threw a surprise shower for Michelle, my lovely sister-in-law, and I got one of those notions.  I was searching for cupcake decorating ideas and came across a picture of a diaper cake.

"Dude," I said to myself... "Dude!  I CAN MAKE THAT!"

And so, off to the store I flew, gathering supplies and giggling through ribbon samples.  (I get a little looney when struck with an idea... surprise anyone?)

Anyway, I came home an hour later and within 15 minutes, with the invaluable help of Robin, I had assembled this:

It's not perfect, but I'll be darned if it's not freakin' festive.

I'm thinking of posting some steps if anyone's interested?

In any case, life can resume now that I got that out of my system.


  1. I get the same kind of mania when it comes to creating things, but if I don't finish right away, it sits half done for ages. Sad. Very festive indeed!

  2. LOVED the cake! You should post the pic of Bean's creation :-)

  3. Too cute. I had almost forgotten about those plastic-ring things - seems so long ago even though they were a part of every single thing we did!

  4. I love it and am going to have a really hard time taking it apart! Thanks for using your crafty craziness on me and Ady.
