Good Morning world. I am regrettably awake and marginally functional on a train to NYC for the day for work (did I mention its 5:18 AM??). I have not, however forgotten my promise to you. Projects! First things first, the Scrabble gift card box. I made this for my friend's wedding on the 26th which had a totally charming Scrabble theme, right down to the table names and 'thank you' gifts. If you ever need to cut through something like a Scrabble board, however, I would recommend a heavy-duty utility blade, because a simple X-acto knife is about as effective as a butter knife.
Next project is a baby shower cake. The kitchen has still not recovered from this one. This was for the first of 2 baby showers I attended this weekend. (Too many pregnant women right now, I have to make sure I don't drink the water!) When talking to a guest at the shower about my cake, she commented "you must have a lot of free time." I was able to keep myself from laughing at her, but that forced me to reflect on the long lost friend called 'free time.' Between my 9-5, my part-time jewelry home parties (need new jewelry? www.liasophia.com/kpgoodman), projects, events, and life, I would not be able to name the last time I had a free weekend. Oh well. I hope you enjoy the products of my sleep-deprived glue gun and fondant (not together of course) adventures!
p.s. Happy Birthday Mom!!
