Its far from Monday morning, baby buds

I know it's far from Monday morning but it's still Monday at this point. The past few weeks have been very busy for me. And this weekend was no exception I had a baby shower for Clipie's niece Raven. Raven is a beautiful strong intelligent young woman. She is a nurse and works in an icu step down unit, she is also a wife and now mother. Her husband Johnathan is currently at sea so he has not seen or held their beautiful baby boy named Talon Zander,who was born in late May. He is a very good baby, in fact Talon let me hold him for quite a bit on Saturday and on Sunday too. Sunday he was in good spirits at the baby shower.
The baby shower went well and we had no problems except a butt ugly cake. I typically always order my cakes from Sam's club because they always do a great job. Not this time, it looked like a CRAZED clown made it! When I went to pick it up they had lost my order! They offered to make a new one, I said make it easy, make it JUST LIKE THE EXAMPLE IN THE BOOK with baby blue flowers.
Now I ask all of you does this look like baby blue flowers?
Does this look like light green trim?
Does not the yellow on the cake make the baby look like he is sitting in a pile of neon yellow poop?
Yes it does my friends yes it does.
So that leads me to the question of the day have any of you ever taken the hobby lobby cake decorating classes? Do you know anyone who has? Are they good?
Cause at this rate I'm going to take classes and I will be making all the cakes my self, cause I know I can match up colors better than this. And no I did not have time to go to another bakery cause it was graduation weekend back home and every bakery was chock full of orders..
Next time I'll get a better cake( probably do it my self) and please let me know if any of you have any cake decorating skills.

Why take that on? You are already complaining about how busy you are why add something else? It isn't that bad, its one cake, give them another try. chelle

Sams usually does a good job, that's a shame that the problem had to be on a shower cake. Did it taste good though? That's the main thing! I don't know about the classes at HL, but if they are the Wilton classes, I think they are all pretty much the same and very good. I would caution against another hobby know how much it costs to start something new!

The cake really doesn't look that bad from the photos. I'm sure the fellowship of everyone far outweighed the look of the cake.
Looks like she had a great time, and I'm sure your efforts were very much appreciated.

If your looking for a cake maker for future events, etc., you might want to give Terri a call.

Hope you had a great visit with family.

I took a class years ago and can tell you straight up....I DO NOT WANT TO DECORATE CAKES!!! The time involved is crazy as well as buying supplies. Also, when people find out you can decorate cakes, they all want them for free. NO CAKE CLASSES FOR ME. djw

so much

Where Do I begin again? I. Have. No. Ideal. I'm going to hit the ground running here and just say the past few years has held a great amount of change for my husband and I. We have lived new places made new friends and started over again. We are movers and shakers I guess. Not really just doing what we can to make life feel comfortable as possible. so lets get off and running, I haven't had a scrap space for almost a year, its been well over a year since I've used a cricut but not the gypsy. The cards most fast and quick and not picture worthy. As some things stay the same I'm still into clean lines its still a timeless favorite. So much of what you will see is rockin it old school or cute and quick and a few Pintrest inspirations. I'm a girl on the run so more quick than anything. For the first time in three years I plan not to travel for a few months and that makes crafting, blogging, and everything else less complicated and room for relaxation and fun. Enjoy the…

I want to live in Bexley

Of course you will not know this song however i must express myself

I want to live in Bexley
So I can drive a big car
I want to live in Bexley
So I can act like a big star

At least that's the way I remember the parody song in my head. This lovely song was composed by two male disk jockeys who hosted the pop music station in my home town. At the time Bexley was "the" place to live. So those who cant afford to live there naturally make fun of the people who do (do men really change as they grow older?) Today I was thinking about that song clipie and I went to Springhill Tn, drove through Franklin Tn, then we came to two little towns called Brentwood and Oak Hill. I must say I have seen some huge homes in my time I've been to parade homes worth millions and had more than 10,000 sq feet so yes I've seen big. However I have never seen a community of homes so big I would not be able to gander upon how big they were. Let my try to compare most of them, they made our old tow…


Ahh so I know no updates of late. A most lazy poster am I. I ve been not liking the current upload system for my pictures so that why I don't post often. Life is ok. We are still in Fort Worth. Traffic boggles my imagination daily I spend about an hour on the road everyday and its only 6 miles to hubby's work and back. Bright lights, big city, crappy traffic.

Do we like it? It's not the worst place we have lived. You'll find original Texans are friendly, problem is not many are around. Of course the possibility could be maybe I'm not that likable. I doubt I'll ever be able to answer that.

We have never bought a house for many reasons the main being ours in B.G. never sold. It sits after price reductions and after every real estate analysis you could think of. 30k plus under market value and yes I've had a recent estimate. The other is taxes. Taxes are about 6000 on a .25 acre lot here . so even if you buy a little house you have a horrid bill. In Arlington …
