Feelin' Crafty

I think my creativity was just absolutely dormant the whole time I was pregnant, and it took another 10 months for it to really come back after Maddie was born. But boy is it back! I just want to make so many things, and since there's not enough time to actually get everything made, I've been making things in my sleep! Well, dreaming of making things, anyway. Wouldn't that be something to wake up and have a project done, though? Or, say, the cleaning finished? Now we know I'm dreaming!

I'm working on Maddie's scrapbook of her first year, and here's a page I worked on Saturday night:
I used my new Cricut and had so much fun! I haven't glued these down yet because I haven't decided if I'm happy with it. I just got a cartridge for the Cricut that has a butterfly on it, so I may swap out the flowers for some cute butterflies.

And then I got another cartridge called Sweet Treats - so super cute! I made these invitations for Maddie's playgroup friends for her first (cupcake themed) birthday party!
Now these I love. I've been drooling over them all day!

And I believe, after two batches of cupcakes and four batches of frosting, that I've found the recipe for Maddie's birthday cupcakes. It's this cream cheese cupcake, only with an amazing vanilla buttercream frosting. I must be getting old because this is definitely the first time in my life that I've ever preferred vanilla over chocolate (in both cake AND frosting!).
Only 21 days till my little baby turns's absolutely unbelievable. Where did the last year go?


  1. Wow. You are like superwoman. Can some of that productivity rub off on me, please?

    Very nice work. How did you get the icing to look so pretty?!

  2. I think that maybe all your creativeness has also inspired me, either that, or I too have the "bug" to make things. Your stuff looks great!!
