Christmas is coming!!
This is a Christmas tree made of different sizes of gingerbread stars. Decorated with mini m&m's and icing for snow. Holly berries for the fence and home made chocolate critters! Lots of fun and easy to do.
Hmm, Maybe she is a touch spoiled! Here is yet another horse item for our daughter!
I made this pillow this weekend. The front panel she picked up from a garage sale. The backing is a flannel tye dye that she has been eyeing up at the fabric store forever!
The size of the pillow didn't match any regular store bought pillow form. So I had to make one. I found this cottom fabric in the discount section of the fabric section in Walmart for $0.99/metre. It turned out to be a pretty inexpensive gift idea. We decided to use the other three horse pannels and make pillows for her girlfriends for their birthdays!
First one I ever made!!! Everyone thought the colors were an awful mix. but it turned out beautiful. I ended up giving it to one of my best friends. She fell in love with it when she came to visit and next thing we knew she was going home with it!
Finally!!! Here is the giraffe birthday cake! Second birthday for our little guy:) he had been going througha "giraffe stage". It was so much fun to do this cake, with the loving help of everyone that night!
Last night I made my husband a roast. Seeing as I am not a big fan of roast beef, I went on a search for something to make with it... and ofcourse what is roast beef without yorkshire pudding?! I found this great recipe online, equiped with all the warnings and realities that my first few tries would likely fall in.
So with a brave spirit and alot of prayer I went right to it!
They turned out wonderful. So wonderful in fact I had to take a picture and post it!
This little teddy bear beauty was a cross stitch I had intended for our third little one. Instead it was given to very dear friends of ours when their first little girl was born last year ( days before our third little guy was born!)
