Adventures in Fondant (pt.2)

These are fondant covered cupcakes I made awhile back. I'd posted a picture on my facebook page, so they never made it to my blog. Oops!

Not bad for my first time using fondant to cover something! I can't wait to try it on a cake next.

More baby hats!

I'm surrounded by babies and preggos right now, so I've been making a ton of baby hats. (this will be my last baby post for awhile though, even I'm getting sick of them!)
I love those baby hats that end in a long tail with a knot in the end, so I drafted a pattern (this means I drew a big triangle on paper), and made these two little cuties for my friend Becca. I'm really happy with how they turned out and I'll definitely be making more for the millions of babies that are coming in the next few months :)
Also, this is how I wrapped them:

sometimes wrapping the gift is just as fun as making it!

Happy 4th of July!

so this is the first holiday in a long time that I haven't baked anything themed for! It could be because it's 100 outside and the thought of turning on my oven makes me want to cry, or because I've got nowhere to go tonight. Somehow I picked up a stupid summer cold and can't go to a BBQ we were planning to go to because I don't want to get my itty bitty nephew sick.

So where ever you are, I hope YOU have a fabulous fourth with some fun themed goodies! As for me, I'm going to stay inside where it's 70 degrees and watch fashion videos on youtube :)

Simple earring holder

I made this cute little earring holder last night when I realized all
my dangly earrings were getting tangled in a drawer.
I took a framed picture, covered it in mesh tulle, hot gluing it
behind the frame. Then I glued a little ribbon on it and that's it!
The only downside is that the picture won't be easy change, but since
it only took a second to glue the tulle down I won't be too sad to
redo it. Also, I love this picture of dimples and I in San Francisco,
so I don't think I'll change it anytime soon. It adds a fun little bit
of personalization to my jewelry corner.
