Creative Writing

Be prepared for loads of creative writing to come your way. I'm taking a creative writing class. Ok, rather I'm taking one vicariously through my kid sister, C. She's taking it for her senior year of high school and I thought it would be fun to give it a whirl by doing the assignments too. I'm finding that at the moment they are a little random, but I'm sure there is a reason behind it. Exercising the use of creativity and spontaneity, perhaps. Anyway, I wanted to give you a heads up. I hope you enjoy my creative writing, I hope I will too!

Baby Quilts

I have been on a quilting kick as of late and I'm actually hoping to sell what I've made once they are completely done. In a matter of two days I put together 5 baby girl quilt tops, now when I have money I will finish them up and send them to my parents to sell at the local farmers market that they participate in every week. Here is a shot of before the tops were done, but I will update with pictures of the finished tops and later the finished quilts.

Pirate Island Cake Test Run

I made a Pirate Island Cake for Aidan's birthday party with some friends of ours and decided its my test run for the one I'll do at the end of the month. What do you think? It was a lot of work and didn't work exactly as planned, but I guess that goes with test runs. I need brand new cake mix next time and I'll be buying premade buttercream icing vs making it myself, and a few other decorative choices, but I think it didn't turn out too bad.

My Projects

They recently cut hours at Christopher's work and so we've been forced to reevaluate our finances. My thinking is I am handy enough I can do some hand projects and perhaps sell them to help. It won't completely make up for the loss in pay, but it won't hurt either. So, here are a list of my projects for while my Hubby's away.

*2 newborn quilts-boys
*2 newborn quitls-girls
*5 adjustable headbands
*5 fabric flower clips
*10 bow clips
*Finish Aidan's newborn quilt
*Finish Aislynn's newborn quilt
*Start Rhiannon's newborn quilt
*Lots of scrapbooking!!!!

I'll post pictures as I do things. Wish me luck!

I'm learning how to make boutique bows, headbands and fabric flowers. I still have a lot to learn and still needs tons of practice. Here is what I accomplished today. What do you think? Any suggestions?

Christopher's Dragon

I bought this ceramic dragon from a really cool ceramic store (that actually no longer exists) in Orem probably 6 or 7 years ago. It was supposed to be a Christmas present for Christopher to go with this really cool dragon shaped puzzle, but apparently time ran away from me and I didn't finish it until tonight. Well, I guess almost done. There are a few minor details left but I don't have the right colors of paint or the schlack that will seal the paint on it. But here is how it looks!
