Mother’s Day Gifts

OK, so I know I am way behind here but I am working on blogging all of my projects that I have worked on in the last year but was too busy to share! 058

FOUND: two pieces of leftover MDF Trim in the garage

HAD: tons of scrapbooking paper and stickers I never use anymore

BOUGHT: metal clips and thick wire

MADE: Mother’s Day Gift

059 Cut paper and mod-podged the background.

Used my circle punch to punch out enough circles for the letters.

Added Stickers to circles and cut out extra shapes and the heart and mod-podged them on as well.


Screwed on the metal clips and wrapped the wire for a holder and its the perfect grandma holder for all of the kids art work and treasures!

Tressa is Four and I MADE A RUFFLE CAKE!


Tressa is FOUR and my last few cakes haven’t been that homemade!


Store bought frosting for Matthew’s birthday but I did attempt some decoration:)


And Michael’s birthday is New Year’s Eve and it being right after Christmas I am totally burned out in the baking department so Grandma came through with a cupcake and candle – Sorry Michael!


So, I got it together and used this tutorial (even has a video to watch) to make my first ruffle cake. Ended up being even easier than I thought and not too much time either!


And of course we had to put some Strawberry Shortcakes on top!


Yep – I got her her very own sewing machine!! She loves it!

Christmas Dress


Two Separate Bridesmaid Dresses in the SAME color – one from my sister and one for $4.99 from Goodwill.

008 - Copy

Ruffling all those strips. Found a really easy way to ruffle, turn your tension all the way up and your stitch length all the way up and wha – la = Ruffle!


Used the lining of the bridesmaid dress for the “under skirt” part, using the bottom for the finished hem.


This is the actual hemline of one of the dresses that I made into a hair flower.




My one and only precious little girl! Just recently finished a fur shrug so she can wear this through the winter.
