Every Now and Then

Every now and then I get a creative itch. Once in a while these ideas I get turn out OK, and other times, not so much. I've been researching my latest idea and I think I'm gonna give it a try.

Allison is having a baby shower in January and I want to try to make a diaper cake for her. They are really cute and a great way to give a practical gift in a creative way. I'll let ya know if it turns out or if it ends up that I just give Allison a bunch of opened diapers that have been manhandled.

I do enjoy doing stuff like this. When Shelly (from Pine Ridge) was here in Sept. our crew had a dinner at Richard's Pizza so we could all have time to visit with her. Richard's provided the dinner buffet and I provided the desert. Since I think of sunflowers when I think of the Rez, I made these little "dirt cake" flower pots. The pic isn't too good thanks to my phone camera but they did turn out pretty cute - or at least I thought so.

And when Logan graduated from the Criminal Justice program at Butler Tech, instead of a traditional cake I made a doughnut tower. It seemed fitting for a future cop in training. I think somebody got to it before this pic was taken but you get the idea...


So, next up is the diaper cake. I'll let you know how it goes ....
