crafts, crafts, crafts...cake!

So they say "Thank Heaven For Little Girls" But you know no matter how this baby came, I would have come up with a way to make tons and tons of cute crafts. So this weekend. I treated myself to some "me" time in my craft room :) This is what I came up with...

Hooter Hider

Diaper Wipes Case

Diaper & Wipes Clutch / Changing Pad

Burp Cloths

 I'm not sure what happened with this picture but you get the point.
And just for a minute I need to show off Jared's awesome handiwork. I told him I wanted a modular system that we could put in the nursery closet because as of a week ago, it was just a top shelf and one bar across the top. Her clothes would have filled it up too easy. So this is what he came up with. He built the shelves in the middle and made it so we can move them around if we don't want them so close together. To the left of the shelf, there is a little nook that seemed totally useless. Well of course he came up with something. I put shoes there for now, but the possibilities are endless!

Let's not forget this cake... We participated in Bountiful Baskets this last week and got all these berries and since I already have a ton of frozen berries, I wanted to make something with them. So I made a cake. The cake was made from scratch using my trusty Betty Crocker Cookbook. If you're interested it's the Silver White Cake. Jared doesn't like cake but he really likes this one, so you know it's a good recipe. It's a bit more dense than the box mixes.


  1. Are you kidding me that you got all of those darling things made in one weekend? Why am I never that productive? I love that she has a ton of shoes already!

  2. The closet turned out sooo awesome! I don't think your little girl has enough clothes and shoes, do you?? SPOILED!!

    LOVE all the fun crafts you made! You need to have a class for all of us craft challenged people!

  3. Wow Katie! You ARE so crafty!! Burping cloths are a must have, I need more, I go through all of mine in about 3 days max! Sheesh! Love the clutch! sometimes that's all you need on a quick trip to the store! You are going to have so much fun dressing up your little girl in all those clothes and shoes! :o) Yay! Can't wait to see her!!
