Yesterday was Julie M's birthday (previously seen here). She was abroad so I will say happy birthday today, with these cat topped cupcakes. Her cats, my frosting. Homemade cupcakes. Win!

I put a little flower on the front too with the extra fabric. It was a little annoying to work with the knit (ie, onesie from target) but it eventually worked thanks to a ballpoint needle.

I put together this simple machine cover over the weekend and I think it has a lot more pizazz than the white plastic one that came with it (and was wearing out too).
Plus its functional - it keeps her safe from dust when at rest. I didn't make a hole for the handle on top - I thought that would let in more dust, and when I carry it I can feel out the handle myself. I may add one or even a little flap I could open to carry, and close when storing it. Not sure about that part yet.
This was very easy to make - all I did was sew together some scraps after measuring my machine. It makes me happy every time I see it!

The pad is cushioned with fleece inside, and rolls out when baby needs a change. It folds up and fits in the coordinating pouch. You could probably tuck an extra diaper or two in there.

I am so proud of you!
Here he is doing some sciencey robot project - not sure what it is but I'm impressed! I also like the plaid shirt. Who says the lab is no place for a fashionable gentleman? NOT ME!
In case you were wondering he is not just an egghead. (Although he's going for his PhD after this.) Look! He is also a cool dude that hangs out on the beach. He is not even glancing at those girls in bikinis. He will just drink his energy beverage and let them come to HIM!
Good work Luke! I am so happy to be celebrating your success with you today!

Here is my handiwork! I sewed a little modern flower design onto a longer piece of fabric, then made it into a little pocket by sewing up the sides. I slipped in a piece of cereal box cut down, then closed the whole thing up. Ta da!
I also glued blank card stock on the other side to write a note. I mailed it in a regular envelope so I suppose that lessens the PC impact, but it will get to my new friend in one piece! I like it. Hope she does too!!

Look at how delicate and pretty! Can't wait to make a bouquet for my mom and maybe some other lovely ladies in my life! And since I'm a spaz without directions, it comes with a lovely book too!

You know what I really like doing? Biking in a dress. True, some adjustments are needed to ensure that the whole world doesn't see your underpants or you get tangled up beyond repair, but if you can get it together it just makes me feel very feminine and powerful and free all at the same time. Or to put it more succinctly: wheeeeeee!!!!

A few things - lots of ads come up in the searches, so if I'm looking for something, I generally have to look past the first few entries to get to the one I'm actually searching for, and bypass the retail sites that are set off by my keywords. If I'm looking for something more obscure, I'll head over to google.
Also, they only give you points once a day, so after I've claimed my bucks for that day, I'll use google. You can get more points if you refer friends - if you want to sign up, and use me as a referral, click here . Fridays are a good day to search because you can get bonus points.
I was debating whether or not to post about this - I don't want to seem like using my devoted readers for free stuff. No way! I value your readership way more than that. If you're not interested just skip this post, there is more craftiness on the way! But, I do love to let you know about great deals and freebies out there, and I've earned money to use on Amazon - where I'd be spending cash anyway - for free, just by searching as I normally would.
If you're interested, check it out! If not, carry on :)
Maybe I could do it with this table? (Which is still sitting on my terrace, waiting to be redone, by the way.
You can see how to do it here.
