It seems there is just so so much going on around here right now that I could post on… I REALLY shouldn`t be posting either… I guess tonight we`ll call it: my guilty pleasure.
Here is a little something fun and
COLORFUL that we made over here this week!
I love the blog: A Little Sussy
And low and behold, one day while perusing… I saw this gorgeous cake on her blog (above). See the whole inspiring post here.
I could so make that, I thought, like all good crafters do.
And by “good” I mean virtuous/thrifty/tightwadish.
Anyway– so I made a rainbow cake for Elle`s birthday, which was this week. It was fun, sort of easy, and took a lo-o-o-ong, long time to make.
Here is mine. 🙂
So I am an adult, but cutting that thing open was just as fun for me, as the kids. It. was. so. cool.
Talk about Baker`s Rush.
Let me just say– how the colors turned out that well. I have no idea. I mixed the colors (food coloring) pretty blindly. Let`s say I feel lucky.
This is back in the kitchen mixing it up. It mainly took me so long because the little round pan was pretty expensive (Joann Fabrics) and so I only had one pan… baking each layer one at a time… Yes, that`s what sucked all the time.
It was a little more time in the kitchen than I like to spend.
Tip: Freezing it, kept it from falling over and worked GREAT for frosting the tall, narrow thing.
What IS it about this editing tint– that makes every picture look like a MEMORY?
I think it`s because alot of my childhood pictures are little square pictures, with rounded corners, and this brownish tint.
Oh, I love it so! Oh, to be a child of the `60s.
(And there it is!!)
This is the camera my mom had in all my childhood memories. Anyone else remember this 1970s era camera? I am so happy to say, I own one just like the one she used to have.
Leaving the rabbit trail now. Back to the party.
Crown or cake?
Another FUN project for Elle`s birthday– the (age) 4 shirt made of sequins.
Again, easy, but took TIME!
Another day I`ll do a little tutorial on that…
Enjoy your weekend. Mine is a fun one. 🙂
