I’m not sure what has gotten into me lately. Maybe it’s the lack of creativity I’ve been allowed at my day job lately. Maybe I’m stir crazy. We want to move into a house. So. Bad.
Lately I’ve gotten into the infamous diaper cake business (I’ve made two. Can I count that as a business?) I’ve also started scrapbooking heavily. The wedding pages are coming to me! And, I’ve been making more cards. Look out people. If your birthday is coming up, you will most likely get a handmade card from me (and if you’re unsure of whether or not I have your birthdate in my calendar, maybe you should email me…)
And today I signed up for a cake decorating class. Wilton cake decorating, level 1. Four Monday evenings in August, starting August 4. I’m totally psyched!
The downside is Kenny’s birthday is next week and he won’t be able to benefit from my mad cake decorating skills. The upside is I have several friends with birthdays in late August and September, and they are totally going to benefit from my cake decorating lessons.
My goal is to make a cake as pretty as our wedding cake. I love the basketweave look. And I love swirl designs in the sides of cakes. I even have a mother-in-law and sister-in-law who are skilled at this, and I’m thinking of talking them into an early lesson this weekend 🙂
There you go. I’m getting crafty again. Only with this craft, people around me could possibly gain 15 pounds.
