Rainbow cake.

All Lorelei asked for was a rainbow cake with candy for her birthday. So this is what we made. She “helped” and was very excited. I made the rainbow with skittles and it was just a plain white cake inside, no rainbow stripes. She loved it! As a last minute requested she asked for stars on her cake luckily I was able to find some star candles. 

The day after her party was her actual birthday and she asked if we could make another rainbow cake. So cute! I can’t believe she is three already. I love being her Mom!


Some Silhouette Projects

My awesome husband got me a silhouette cameo for Christmas. So far I have made a vinyl decal for my laptop and Scott made a batman decal for the back of the iPad.

I did spend some time and designed a family rule/motto board. Although I had to wait for some longer cutting mats and had to buy them from a different company because silhouette only has a 12 by 12 right now.  I am happy with how it turned out!


I downloaded a jpeg of a horse for Lorelei and edited in the silhouette program. I was happy with my new skills! I tried cutting fabric with the cameo. I bought the two different interfacing that the silhouette company says to use. The one I used so far was the sewable one. After ironing it on I went around the edges with pink embroidery thread.  I have to say that Lorelei was excited to have a big black horse shirt.


I have more projects to do but some of them have to wait for the new house. Since I have no where to put them here.

Super hero capes

I made some super hero capes over the holidays for Lorelei along with her cousins Max and Callum. They were quick and easy and loved by all! Every little child loves having a super hero cape you know.





My sister in law sent me this picture a few days after Christmas with the boys out riding their bikes with their capes on. So cute!

Tree Skirt

This year I made my Christmas tree a skirt. I saw a ruffled tree skirt on Pinterest and thought that it was lovely. I had some fabric at home that I could use already so this is what I came up with:


I cut a four inch strips and then sewed them all together. I then used that rolled hem foot and hemmed the never ending strip. Afterwards I used my Mom’s vintage ruffler foot and gathered all of it. After the strip was all hemmed and gathered I pinned and cut it to fit the tree skirt base I had cut out. Sewed it all together. Made some binding to sew on the edges and top leaving a long tie to be able to close it. Took forever but I love it!

(Sorry for the bare tree I almost forgot to take a picture of it!)
