Halloween Spirit

This is a cake I made to enter into our pumpkin decorating contest at work.  I decided a pumpkin you can eat would be much more fun.  The finished result turned out fairly well. 

Basic Instructions:  Bake a cake in a bundt cake pan and after it cools frost in orange and then break out your creativity on the type of jack-o-lantern face you would like to add.  For the stem just frost an ice cream cone and sit it upside down in the center. 

As an added treat all of my Halloween Cards are now 50% off!

Interpretation of a sketch: The Man Card

It feels good to be stretching my imagination again and creating cards.  Today I was thinking of all the men in my life and realized it was time to make a card suited for any one of them.  Grabbed a few of my most masculine embellishments and sketch 38 from Card Patterns website and I got started.   I think the finished card would work well for a graduation, birthday or just to provide some support.  If you would like to give this card to someone in your life stop by my Etsy shop by clicking here.

Interpretation of a Sketch: Wedding Card

Today I have started working on a line of Wedding Cards to add to my Etsy store so when I saw the sketch on Card Patterns for this week I thought that just might work.

Busy Past few weeks

I've been playing a bit of hide and seek with not much time to post here.  The past few weeks I have:
  • Taken a super fun vacation to Minnesota.  Who would have thought I could spend 3 days in a mall but one trip to the Mall of America and an active boyfriend ready to see it all and I managed to keep up.  The attached picture is a cute fish who watched us enjoy a meal at the  Rainforest Cafe. 
  • Started a low iodine diet in prep for an upcoming RAI procedure.  Having to exclude dairy, eggs, fish and many pre-made foods has made for a new use of my creativy. 
  • Fought through a stomache bug.  This has certainly made it easier to stick to my new diet for the past few days.
  • Added a couple of new Christmas themed cards to my Etsy site. 

Hope all of you have had a good few weeks as well.
