slpteach2 - thanks for your comment! I used a regular loaf pan I'm sorry I don't know the measurements however you could use a pound cake and just cut it the same way. As for how to cut the cake into shape, under the second photo from the top there is a link to the Parenting.com site where I found the cake. There is a detailed description of how to cut the cake. I hope this helps and good luck with the party!!

Hi y'all. Been a long time! There's been a lot going on at our house since I last posted including giving birth to a shiny new baby girl in January! Needless to say I've been occupied with other things. However... Continue reading

The Boy turned 3 this week and it was time for a party. A Robot Party! Ever since seeing the movie Wall-E, the Boy has really been into robots. He spontaneously speaks robot and walks like a robot; the last... Continue reading

You're welcome! Glad you tried them out :)
Squeebs - I really like the pineapple idea - or the idea of something special reserved for a specific time of year. Good stuff, thanks! LYMI

This is really the first year I’ve put together something for The Boy from the Easter Bunny. He is only 2.5 years old after all. I think he will have fun looking for eggs in the yard and getting a... Continue reading

Hooray for walking around in my underwear in the kitchen!!! TMI, I know - but come on – admit you do it too. The sidelight windows of our front door look right into the kitchen and main hallway so I... Continue reading

I realize I’m posting this the evening of Valentine’s Day and it would have been more helpful last week; however this is something you could probably whip up anytime no matter the occasion or use it for next year’s valentines.... Continue reading

In an effort to teach The Boy how to be a civilized little guy at the dinner table - and to make using a napkin fun and exciting - I whipped this baby up. It took 10 minutes tops. Bonus... Continue reading

I drew these marshmallow snowmen with food coloring pens while watching a movie earlier this month. Before I knew it I had gone through the whole bag. Cute, no? They were part of holiday gift bags for friends and neighbors... Continue reading

We came home with a couple of pinecones from a visit to Grandpa & Grandma’s house for Christmas. These were a quick and super easy craft that kept The Boy totally engaged. Start to finish (hanging them in the tree)... Continue reading

Why hello Ms. Cutie-Patootie Panda. I made these for a friend’s twin girls who were graduating from kindergarten. Their class mascot was a panda… how about some panda cupcakes to celebrate! These were really easy to make. With that said... Continue reading

I didn't get a chance to read the comments on the other post about sheets but please check out Garnet Hill. Their sheets are heavenly and I mean, sleeping on a cloud while being warmed by the sun and having a chocolate IV kind of heavenly. My They are also always a little wrinkled but super soft and the flannel feels you're sleeping on giant marshmallows. Also they have unusual designs. I see Seabiscuit there - how do you like it so far?

What a wonderfully thoughtful post and comments. So I'm not the only one! I used to have this problem with magazines and what helped me with mags was the realization one day that what I was seeking was not just inspiration but also the feelings that the images inspired in me. Like the contentment of sitting on a beautiful porch surrounded by colors, smells and embroidering. Or the pride of coming up with something clever and then creating it. The happiness that came from making someone feel special through a handmade gift or a thoughtful party. But then came the reality that I spent my time living vicariously through others and through their feelings instead of creating my own and enjoying real life moments spurred by my creativity. While I love to revel in everyone's craftyness I'm on the verge of an internet hiatus too. Thanks for helping me articulate what I've been feeling for awhile. Time to make and not just look. :)
