Owl baby blanket

I was able to go to Las Vegas last Monday and meet up with my sister while my car was being worked on and spend the day shopping :) what's more fun than that?! Anyway she mentioned that a coworker of hers was having a little girl and she wanted to do something for her so while we were in Hobby Lobby we found this material. My sister had said that the girl was doing an owl themed baby room and this went perfect. She bought the material and I brought it home with me, tied it and finished the edge and took it back to her on Thursday as we were heading up to Utah. I am so grateful I know how to do these things, my mother taught me well! I was also grateful that I was able to help my sister out and I'm glad I don't live to far away from her so we can get together even just for the day.

Dry Erase Menu Board

I haven't been doing a whole lot of card making lately but I did manage to make this fun dry erase menu board a few weeks ago. We are doing a whole lesson on menu planning for a church activity and I thought this would go along with it really well. I just picked up an inexpensive frame from the dollar store and went through my scrapbook paper to find a print I liked then I printed the weekdays on it and voila it's was ready to be hung up in the kitchen :)

baby girl diaper cake

 Here is the girl cake I did. I had a double shower to go to so I made this up for the mom who had the little girl. 10 diapers on top and 40 on the bottom tier. I tied some Pink Sorbet twine from The Twinery around it and finished it off with the cute toys on top!

baby boy diaper cake

 I made this for a friend who is having a boy soon. I used 1 package of size 1 diapers, 40 for the bottom tier and 10 for the top tier. I wrapped some cute pea pod paper around with a solid brown underneath and then used some Trendy Twine in Chocolate Sprinkles to finish it off. I just pushed the toys into the top :)

Teacher Gift

 I found out that one of my kids teachers loved this stuff so I went out and bought a 4 pack and turned it from drab to fab. I just covered the bottles with some fun paper around the main part and also cut a circle from the same paper for the top as you can see in the last photo. I even had an empty one so I filled it with peanut M&M's and put that in the gift bag as well :) really easy and fast too!
