Hehe....
So my guess is you also have yards and yards of fabric you bought that is no longer age or gender appropriate for anyone living in your home....

You betcha! I also have 3 scrub tops cut out and ready to sew together and haven't worked in the medical field for almost 4 years now! I have stuff for a country dance outfit. Haven't done that in over 10 years! Since all that is stuffed into that dormer room with the door closed, I don't see it everyday and so it sits. Since going back to school, reading, writing and studying has taken precedence over crafts.

Jeenkz, love the wood works. I love making things with wood. I have been able to in a long time though. I enjoyed making these and my yard art for the 4th, xmas and easter.

I have learned a lot and my next cupcake wedding cake will be a lot better. But they were happy with it.
<PERK> Cappuchino cupcakes? Would you be willing to part with the recipe? Or, if you have already posted it, point me in that direction?

When my father was in the US Navy, we lived in Japan for a few years. I remember that my mother took a cake dec. class. She used to bake the most interesting cakes! I remember a special clamp-together cake pan that produced a baby bear, sitting on it's rump. If you shaved off the ears before you decorated, it could become a baby person. Unfortunately, I don't have pics of those cakes. Somewhere, I think I still have her "certificate" for finishing the class, mounted.

I had to work a week in the bakeshop in college as part of my degree program. I learned one thing; I am NOT a cake-dec person. Those folks that can do this are truly artists. Your cakes look wonderful, and I love the wedding cupcake tower.

Alan, since half of DC has already made them (J/K, I think it is probably only a third LOL) have already made them in some form or other, there is no problem giving you the recipe. You will find it here. Let me know how they work for you. It will be interesting to ready the thread for ideas before you make them.

Hope the pic comes out well. This is my first attempt at attaching a pic to a post.

OMG!!! Broncos colors!!!!

No, Cavalier Colors! They are in first place in the ACC (UVA) and we're hoping to go to a bowl game this year.

I don't have a picture of it (maybe I can get one later), but I made a no-sew fleece throw for James last year. I kept hearing how much easier they are to make than sewing one. It wasn't hard to make, but I thought I would never finish tying all that fringe! James loves it. It has one Chicago Cubs fabric on one side and another Cubs fabric on the reverse side.

Okay, I can finally post a picture of my craft. It's the tutu and headband Abbie is wearing.
