Best Laid Plans

I can't believe I've let so much time go by since my last post.  It has been busy around here with guests and preparing for a baby shower and all that, but I really could have made the time.  I guess my main problem is writer's block.  I just couldn't think of anything to write about.

I've stopped making dolls for a bit while I was concentrating on making things for the baby shower, I've been scouring the internet for new and unusual recipes for food to serve at said shower, and I've been entertaining out of town guests.  I know, excuses, excuses.

I made this really cute diaper cake with little flying elephants made from baby washcloths, and some onesie cupcakes.  They were great fun.  Everyone got a kick out of them, including the mom-to-be.

The food was great!  Everything from real homemade cupcakes to salads, dips, sandwiches, a fabulous cheese tray, you name it.
It was so much fun to host and would definitely jump at the chance to do it again.  I just love the creative process and coming up with all of the games and decorations was my favourite part.
I've also a had a bit of time to try my hand at making more doll furniture.  This couch pictured is actually a chair pattern that I modified to make a sofa.  There is a doll in it right now, but from time to time I find my sweet tuxedo cat in it and the doll on the floor.  Maybe I should make one for him too :)
As I said earlier, I think I may be suffering from writer's block.  Can't think of anything interesting to say, except maybe that I think Chris Hadfield should get the Order of Canada.  What a wonderful wonderful man and a great inspiration to everyone!

  1. That diaper cake is adorable and I really like your new chair:) I agree about Chris Hatfield...he should get some kind of acknowledgement.
