Getting Crafty

I've been very busy making things the past few days. I dug out my cake decorating/making supplies and made a birthday cake for Zan. This one he will bring to work tomorrow. Keep in mind this is the first cake I've decorated in many years. The hardest part was finding the right frosting, which I finally got after 3 tries.

Next project is barrette's for Ella. I was at Target the other day and saw these really cute barrette's. They were $10 for two!!! You've got to be kidding me. I wouldn't even let her wear those to school because they might get lost. So I got the supplies I needed and made my own at less than $.50 each. They are so easy to make and I can make them so they don't slide off. Very cute!! I have enough stuff to make 100! Here's a couple that I made in 5 minutes.

Here's a picture of the kids from tonight too!!

Cake looks great it doesn't look like you forgot anything. It that a company thing that they get to take cakes to work? Nice idea. You can make barrette's too? You are very ingenious person. I bet Ella loved them. Ella and Sammy looked happy and busy. I bet they kept you going.
