Baked : Bryant's Golf Cake

Wednesday, March 16, 2011

I made a cake for my brother's birthday today.
He likes to golf so I went with that theme.




Coconut grass, Vanilla Wafers for the sand, white golf ball sized candies, and a Fruit by the Foot flag.




I officially don't give The Cake Boss enough credit. haha, seriously decorating a cake is a lot harder than it looks. I had fun though.

The idea came from this lovely website. (Yes it's a parenting website.. don't judge me.)

Happy Birthday Bry!

Let Me Sleep on it.

I made another pillow for my room.

It's just that this fabric matched my room better and it has a zipper. So it's super duper fancy and stuff. ;)

I'm realizing that I am addicted to florals, stripes, and making pillows.

Who Me?

A while ago, the incredible Jihee over at The Soaktree awarded me with a stylish blogger award! Of course I couldn't be more flattered. Thank you so much Jihee!
Now I am supposed to tell you all 7 random facts about myself and nominate 7 bloggers who I think are award worthy. Here we go..

1. When I type, I use the caps lock key to type uppercase letters. (Most people use the shift key.) It's completely ridiculous that I do it that way, because it just makes my life more complicated. But I got into the habit of doing it when I first learned to type and the habit stuck.

2. I will be here, here, or here at this time next year. (Scary)

3. I'm kind of in love/obsessed with peanut butter. Only exception is that it has to be crunchy and it has to be the natural stuff. Then I'm sold.

4. I use my foot to clip my fingernails. That sounds so weird.. I'll have to show you guys how I do it sometime.

5. I listen to podcasts while I do my make-up. My favorites include Stuff You Should Know, Stuff Mom Never Told You, and ModTV Fashion Network.

6. I'm currently participating in a one handed study. They pay me in Amazon gift cards. Score!

7. I'm pretty much obsessed with this line at the moment.

Um ya, Mr. Saab? I'll take one of each thanks. 

You've officially been tagged! 
That being said, absolutely no pressure to reciprocate. :)

Sewn : Blue Buttercup Dress.

Tuesday, March 1, 2011

My latest project.



Basically this turned out to be a nightmare of a dress. I finished the entire thing only to realize that the bodice was huuge on me. Ugh.
Apparently it's a really dumb idea to guesstimate your measurements.
Who knew?
Anyways, my options were to either redo the top and pretty much start from the beginning, Or just throw the dress in the trash..
I chose the latter. :)
 Luckily my mom had more compassion than I did and persuaded me to give it another chance.
Moral of the story: take accurate measurements !

*I used Newlook 6723 for those that are interested.*
