I've always made my kid's birthday cakes. From Kaehlen's first birthday on. I have a Winnie the Pooh cake pan I've used for all of my kids first birthdays. Along with it I fix a "personal" size pooh cake. That way they have their own to devour! While this one is not my "favorite" as far as overall look goes, I love the idea and hopefully will do a better job on it next time. My head is going crazy with cake ideas this year. I can't wait to get started on Kaehlen's. But, since it's not till Nov I guess I'll have to wait to get it going. lol

Well, it's getting to that time of year again...time to start thinking about Christmas. In our house it is extra busy due to 2 b-days before Christmas and 1 a month after. One thing I like to do to cut down on costs (extended family wise) is to make gifts. Last year I made bath salts. They were super easy and loads of fun to make. It takes some experimenting to get it right...but that just means I get to enjoy a bath while "testing" the product. I have so many ideas going through my head this year. Thankfully I pretty much have gifts figured out and most of them will be bought this year. But it doesn't keep my wheels from turning. I love doing crafty things! I just wish I had more reasons and time to do them. Whether it's baby blankets, bath salts, soap petals...the list goes on, I enjoy doing them.

I have contemplated making and selling what I call baby rag quilts. They are so nice, soft, durable. My kids love theirs and I have made and given them to several people as a baby shower gift. I have NO clue how much to ask for anything like it. But, here are some pics to show you what I'm talking about. Any input is appreciated.
