Diaper Cake Received!

A few days back I posted a photo of my latest diaper cake, and here it is, in its party setting awaiting the Mommy to be! Isn't it pretty! The young lady who asked me to put this together we have known since she was at least 6 years old. She was our neighbor, went to school with my children and became bestest of friends with my one and only daughter.
What a wonderful caring person she has grown up to be. She threw this baby shower for her co-worker who recently not only lost her own mother, but her Aunt in a very bad car accident. I can only imagine how devastating not having your mother there for you during your pregnancy and the future with her grand child. Very heartbreaking.
So our neighbor, sweet little caring person that she is not only gave her a shower but purchased the goodies for the diaper cake that I put together for her. She even tried to pay me for it, she is so sweet! Did I mention that? :)

Crochet Bernat Blanket Afghan... still going.

This Afghan sure feels like it has no end in sight. At the time, I was searching Pinterest for fun crochet projects for the holidays, something quick, cute and fun to make as 🎁 gifts! My plans changed when hubby kept catching me searching and searching and when I mentioned I was looking for a crochet project, he put me to work. We headed to Hobby Lobby for him to pick out his yarn for his Afghan. He picked Bernat Blanket Yarn, there were only 5 skeins, 4 in gray and 1 in white. We would need a lot more to make an Afghan large enough for someone six foot tall. He wants it to be around 80 x 100 inches! Yeah, I was freaked! I have never made anything that large before, so it kind of sounded fun. I had to buy the largest crochet hook I could find in the store for this one! My hubby wants an Afghan that his toes will not poke through. That calls for tight stitches. I have been working on it off and on for about 2 months now, I can only do so many rows before my fingers are cramped up. I don't know how My elders can do that large of projects over and over again making afghans for their entire families during the holidays. It is a lot of work! Be appreciative if you receive an Afghan from a loved one, they worked hard for you to have a warm hug year round! :)

Custom Diaper Cake

I love making these adorable diaper cakes, also called Nappy Cakes. This particular one is a custom order. My customer, who also happens to be my daughter's friend. They have been friends since about the age of 4 or 5 years old. She is like a daughter to me. When she called to ask if I could put together a diaper cake if she buys the goodies I was not about to say no! I think it turned out pretty cute! I added in some tissue paper carnations to help make that tissue paper stuffed filler a little prettier. 

Do you want to know how to make tissue paper carnations? here is the link to the tutorial I used:
