New Painting

It's probably been almost a year since I've painted something. I have a hard time trying to paint because I haven't had any actual classes on how to do so. I pretty much just wing it and try to do the best I can..

I painted this yesterday..

Perhaps I'll have more to come..

With much better pictures..

My first Diaper Cake

I've always wanted to make a diaper cake and I finally got my chance! My sister is preggers with a baby boy and we had her first shower today *dances*
I've never really went to a baby shower before but this one was kinda fun. We played neat little games and won cute prizes.
Anyway, I got pumped the night before trying to prepare for this diaper cake. Watching about 10 different youtube tutorials to make sure I get it right. Checking out different pictures and versions of diaper cakes.

This particular diaper cake though, was actually kind of easy. The hardest part was rolling up each individual diaper. But I just went shopping for ribbon and little things to add to it and it all just came together perfectly. I actually stood back and said 'hmm, that's not too bad.' So, now I'm excited to make more! Weeeeee!

Here's a really awesome tutorial on a different style diaper cake that I plan to use one day.

I'm Engaged!

I hate neglecting my blog because that also means that I have been neglecting my crafts!!

Recently, I have become engaged to my best friend. We have been together for almost 4 yrs, so naturally when people heard the news they responded with 'It's about time.' lol So, lately I've been looking up a lot of things about weddings n such. And I'm sure alot of things for the wedding will be handmade by me because it's fun and much cheaper. So, I have decided that I'll prob make a seperate blog for all things wedding oriented. I'll keep you guys posted if you'd like to add that too!
I have a lot of projects going underway. I just recently have been given a new schedule that will leave me with LOTS of extra spare time. So, ya best be ready!!
And on that note, I'll leave you guys now with a few pictures of me and my love! Have a great day everyone!
