eat! craft! live!

Baking, crafting, mama-ing and taking photos of it all. When I remember.

the girl turns 4: bee cake pops and sheep cupcakes!

E turned 4 last Sunday and we had family and friends over to celebrate. She requested chocolate cupcakes and I fancied them up a little bit! Plus, cake pops. Because who doesn’t need more sugar?

The day was gorgeous, for a change, and the kids played outside while various adults wandered in and out of the house, everybody keeping a collective eye on the little ones. I’m so ready for spring! I blogged about the cake pops over here, but I’ll share the photos here too – they’re too cute not to!

i made a thing!

I made a thing!

An earring holder, to be more specific.

I made a thing!

It now hangs on the wall in my bedroom, and holds all my earrings. (Yes, those are all my earrings.) Before, they were lying in a (small) jumbled heap in a little basket, perpetually in danger of being knocked over by tiny (or not so tiny) hands. Now, they’re safely up on the wall and easy to access!

I’m sure you’ve seen something like this before, but in case you haven’t – all I did was put a piece of quilting cotton in an embroidery hoop, glue the extra fabric down around the back and voila! Earring holder! Fabric courtesy of Annika in a GMDS package. Yay good mail!
