my first diaper cake!!

This is my first diaper cake!! I have no clue how they are really made. I saw it a few months ago and just had to try one on. My niece has allowed me to throw her baby shower and it was the perfect opportunity to give it a try. I think it came out pretty good although my design wasn't as planned as it should of been. Yet I am pleased and it only cost me around 20 bucks. I hope she likes it. She will tell me she does whether she does or not.

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.

hey look Saturday again

hahaaha it's Saturday again and I am working on my nieces baby shower. I will have to add pics tomorrow. Today has been long, cold, and wet. I had to bring my son to the airport and I was sniffing all the way, from my cold and missing him.
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.
