Baby Shower

Baby Shower

I co-hosted and attended my first ever baby shower today as my daughter is expecting her first child and she wanted to celebrate the event with her friends. I decorated this cake with a baby elephant as her theme was safari

I have to say that polymer clay is far easier to work with than fondant icing though :)

Happy New Year

May I wish all of my crafting friends a very Happy, Busy and Creative New Year
Christmas is on its way!

Christmas is on its way!

Now it's December, it is really starting to feel Christmassy and we have put up the decorations. I love Christmas lights and like nothing better than to sit in the soft glow of the Christmas tree lights crafting with an orange and cinnamon perfumed candle flickering nearby. I saw some Christmas trees in a magazine that I read recently and it inspired me to have a go at making my own. It is a cone of cardboard with multiple loops of paper and fringing attached, then finished off with a trunk made from brown cardboard wrapped around with string for strength. Very twee!
