Where has the time gone!!!

I cannot believe my last blog post was in 2010!!! Where/what have I been doing? Oh that's right... raising my very active and very busy almost five year old triplets!!

It's been two years since my last post and let me tell you I didn't even feel it! Since my last post I've tried my hand at many new crafting endeavors. I started making boutique bows, bottle cap jewelry, tutus, and I even learned how to crochet! Not to mention my on going self-teaching of the oh so crafty sewing machine. I swear you would have never guessed that this lady was the daughter of a professional seamstress!

Within the next couple of weeks I will be adding posts of the many different things I have done in the last two years... Diaper cakes, birthday party centerpieces, tutus, bows, birthday banners, etc etc.

Hope you'll be patient with me and stick around for the updates!

Sandy :)

PS: Thinking of changing my blog name but can't think of anything catchy, unique, and pretty, like me :) LOL! Oh and soon I'll be starting my mommy blog, all about raising my triplets!

Pink and Brown Diaper Cake

My son's Godmother had a baby shower on Saturday. I decided to make her a diapercake. She chose a pink and brown color scheme, and a flowers, butterflies, and lady bugs theme. I used my E along w/ the CDS to cut out all the embellies on the cake. I designed the lady bugs to resemble the ones on this crib set http://www.target.com/Tiddliwinks-Mocha-Ladybug-Bed-Set/dp/B0032Z3RXW/ref=in_de_detail-item-display .
I made the name out of chipboard letters that I painted brown and added glitter glue. Then I glued them on to a piece of white glitter paper and pink paper.

Needless to say it was HIT!!!

Sesame Street Party

My boys turned 2 on Dec. 12th and after much debate we ended up throwing them a small birthday party. Here is the invitation that I designed for them.

Here are the centerpieces. I kept them really simple because I really didn't have much time to prepare for the party. I used the Sesame Street Cart for the characters but I don't remember what size I cut them. The base is just a formula can that I covered. All of my family really liked them and my boys recognized all their favorite characters.

This was the main table. I made the birthday sign by printing the sesame street group picture with the poster option on my printer; it's almost like a puzzle that you have to put together. Anyways, once I put it together I glued it on a piece of cardboard using Mod Podge. The letters were recycled from the banner from their 1st birthday party.

The goodie bags are just plain lunch bags in four different colors and I just added the birthday logo that I designed to the front of them. I think they look pretty good.

My first Card!!

Well today is Valentine's day!! So Happy Valentine's Day everyone! Hope you guys have a great day!!

Now on to my big milestone in paper crafting!! I finally made my first card!! I made this card for my Hubby! It is a simple, but very cute, card.

The three little hearts are made from my boys' little thumb prints. Isn't that just so adorable!! I stamped their print with red ink, I placed the right and the left thumb diagonally to make the heart shape. Then I cut the hearts carefully and glued them on to my saying (printed on photopaper), trimmed it down to size, inked the edges then glued it on the card. Added the brads for an extra touch and viola!! Simple I tell ya!!

My first vinyl project, FINALLY!

Last September I won Lilgreenbug's vinyl giveaway, and have been too scared to try it out!! Well that all changed yesterday!! I finally decided to give it a try and I succeeded!! Although the texture on my wall was not helping I made it work! After two agonizing hours I finished my project. When my hunny walked through the door he LOVED what he saw, that made it all worth it!!
