Instead of a traditional cake I made individual dirt puddings for everyone. Then we had a small cake for the birthday boy to be able to blow out the candles. Each child upon arriving received a butterfly net filled with bug treats and a bug catching kit that we decorated. My mom who is a born Cub Scout leader led them all through a nature walk and taught them about leaves and flowers. All the kids followed her around like puppies, eating up everything she had to say. Afterwards we had a bug hunt (with plastic bugs).

OK so this is really just a brag post. My oldest son had his kindergarten art show last night. Here are just a few samples of his work. Next week will be my preschoolers show. I'm sure I'll post those too :).
On another note I have not worked on anything today because I have been watching the original stars wars movies withy boys all day! May the force be with you.

I'm giving the blog thing another go. This time however, I will be changing it up a little. Instead of just talking about my cake projects I will also share my other crafting ventures.
I have been up to so much lately that I feel like sharing some of my recent projects.
My son Jordan turned 6 in march and his theme was angry birds. His party was complete with a giant angry bird game, a make it yourself angry bird pizza station, and of course a great big angry bird cake. The kids all had a blast throwing the birds around and rebuilding towers.
Another few projects I have been working on recently are a cake that I made for a local auction fundraiser for my churches youth, a birthday cake for my niece and another birthday cake for my nephew. I ended up getting to make the My little pony cake twice because a friend of mine loved it so much she asked me to make it for her daughter too. I also made a "manly" cake for a carpenters birthday. It was fun to come up with a design that was not your typical flowery cake.
A non cake related project that I just finished is an art display area that I made for my boys room. I love how it turned out and my boys use it constantly :). I took 4 wooden rounds that got from acmoore and painted the two toned. Then I stapled a line of twine between two of them in two rows. I hung clothes pins on them for the boys to use. I then got dot wall decals (also from acmoore) and decorated the surrounding area. This was such a simple and fast project but it really brought a lot to their room. It also gave me a place to hang their art other then the fridge :)
