Turtle Baby Shower Card

To go with the theme of the diaper cake, I had to make a matching turtle card for the baby shower.

I did hide contour the turtles face, and welded to turtles together to make a card.

Diaper Cake for Angela

Yesterday was Angela's baby shower, her and her husband are waiting to know the sex until the baby is born...I knew she was doing a neutral baby room in yellow, green and brown.  This cake was inspired by some of the pictures she sent me on her room decor.

The burp cloths on the left were my very first sewing project

Glitter Mason Jar Candle Lights

This was extremely easy and fast to make.  Buy a mason jar, add painters tape around, then add white glue, glitter (I always use Martha Stewart glitter), wait an hour before removing the tape, then spray with acrylic to keep glitter from falling off.  I added a flameless candle from Michaels, and it added a little extra to my Halloween table decorations.

Cowboy Theme Baby Shower for a Boy

My cousin was hosting a baby shower for her friends soon to be baby boy and asked if I could make some table decorations and a banner. I used the Cricut cartridge Country Life, and tried to make it a little western style.

I already owned 2 pairs of cowboy boots, so it made the project even easier. I even found a metal tin at Michaels and a cheap cowboy hat at Wal-Mart. I filled the boots 1/4 full or rocks to help the stability since they would be outside, and I did not want them to blow over.  Then I added a piece of florist foam to the bottom, and cut my wooden dowels for different lengths.  I went to Michaels and found different things that looked like wheat and items related to a western theme to add a little character and some flowers.  Went to Wal-Mart and found bandanas for $1.  Just played around with all the items until I loved the centerpieces.  Very easy to make and I feel added a lot of fun!
