All I did was roll the diapers and place rubber bands around the middle and then put them in groups of 7. I attached the groups together with more rubber bands until I got the desired shape and size. Then I wrapped with different ribbon and topped of with foam stickers and teddy bears. I used some chopsticks to hold the two layers together and used a chipped cake stand I found for a quarter. Yay for thriftiness!! Oh yeah I also used crinkle paper to top off the cake just to add a little sumtin sumtin.

I have totally failed at being crafty this Christmas. I have been sick the past week and lack energy to decorate. My husband and daughter bought a tree last Monday and it is still out in our garage! Alone in the dark with only the cats eyeing it to be there's. I am hoping they will rescue it tomorrow so we can bring life back into it. Part of me is afraid to bring it in as it might take vengeance on us for wasting it's best days. I keep having images of Charlie Brown's tree shedding it's needles and bending over from the weight of one ornament. I watch far too many cartoons.

So to get back to my many ideas. I have recently stumbled upon an awesome find that was actually found a few years ago. I was going to sell them and I still may but they have definately inspired me for a theme. They are these 22 1950's glass baby bottles. That are perfectly intact. Even the nipples are in great condition. They would be great for the decorations or favors or prizes. Thinking about filling them with m & m's.
I'm going for a retro pink and blue shower. I am working on the invites right now, with a blk and wht vintage photo with a humoruous twist.
I will serve old school hor'devours like deviled eggs, wienie dogs, fondue, etc and mocktails. We will do blue drinks in martini glasses and pink in chanpagne flutes. I even found blue cherries for the blue drinks.
I'm thinking of doing a famous vintage mom guess as they come in and some door prizes. I have also come up with a hopefully simple homemade favor for everyone. Also some clothes line and oneis and socks to hang on them. Maybe a decorating station for making the onies personal. hmmmmm still many ideas that I need to whittle down. I'm not sure if I can wait until Januarary.

It is such a great color and gives off this amazing warm glow. My husband thinks Mrs. Brady is still looking for it but that's because he doesn't get it.
I also finished another cassette art, this is Billy Joel. He took me alot longer than the other two. I keep geting more detail in there than I expected. So here's a shot of that one. I also have opened an Etsy account with delusions of a possible side business. Who knows maybe someone will stumble upon my creativity and be amazed and spread the word until I become the net virus and people want what I can do. ......see I told you I had delusions

I love other sites and am amazed at the level of talent and creativity that sooo many people have. I see the things they do and I so want to try to. Yet I know I am below their ability I do enjoy new and fun things.
So if you have stumbled upon this site do check back and see the things I have created.
