Getting crafty!!

These are the gifts I made for a dear dear friend of mine who I have known for probably close to 23 years!! She is about to have Baby number 2 and and made these for her baby shower!!

This one I didn't take very many pictures of sorry=(. The others didn't not turn out well and in this one it's kind of hard to tell. So I'll just tell you about it and you can use your imagination=). So on the invitation they called her shower a pre-birthday party and what is better for a birthday then cupcakes=). My amazing 'super woman' of a sister in law made some of the cutest socks crochet with beads (P.S. Danielle I had several requests from some of the women that want them in there size!! hehe) and I bought the cutest little onesie that had 3 cupcakes on it and it said "Mommy's little Cupcake" So I folded the the onesie like 3 times hot dog ways and placed the socks on the end and round them up together so the beads on the socks were sticking up out of the top of the roll so it looked like a cupcake with frosting then I took some paper that I had left over from a project where I had 'crimped' it and cut that to fit so it looked like a cupcake cup. I was worried that no one would know what it was suppose to be but when she took it out of the page she said "oh my gosh it's a cupcake!" So that made me happy=). Also the cupcake I cut out with my cricut=) and you can't tell in this picture but there are "sprinkles" on it too.

This idea I stole from someone else but I made it my own=). This is the lid. Of the pail. I cut everything but the flower with my cri-cut.

I actually added the babies name later. But I know how some women are about sharing there baby name and so I just took a picture before I added it so her name wasn't floating out in Internet wonderland=).

This is the inside of the 'Bath time pail' I found a large hooded towel she'll be able to use for a while, some soap, lotion and a hair brush and comb set

Well I hoped you enjoyed looking!! And wish me luck I am going to submit my work again in hopes of getting on Craft Warehouse's 2010 Design team. I didn't make it last year and if I don't make it this year I think I'll wait a while before I try again. And I can't show what I made until after the deadline is over but I do promise to share. Lots of love!!
