Busy Busy Bee

Our spring break has come and gone, but we have a special visitor that we have been enjoying immensely!  My mom came in from New York on the 13th and totally surprised all my kids :)  I didn't tell them she was coming, just went to the airport that morning and brought her back and just blew them all away!  She'll be here till the 27th and it's been wonderful having mom here.  She got to spend Sophia's birthday with her on the 14th and that was awesome.

I made a great cake that I saw on Pinterest for So, along with the chocolate cake she originally wanted.  Here's a pic of the Pinterest one -

and here's mine -

It wasn't as hard to do as I thought.  Here are some picks of us putting it together.  You just drop each color right on top of the last -

My frosting didn't come as nice, but cool just the same -

I've made a scrapbook decision, my town has a market night each Thursday, and I've decided to make some of my things for selling.  I love doing it, people always complement my pieces, why not see if I can make some bucks at it.  Here are some pics of what I've been working o.

This one is a spring banner obviously, I love how nice it came, it really is cheery and bright.

This baby banner would make a great shower decoration and then on to the baby's room.  It came so sweet.

I'll also be doing  mini's and some altered stuff like my paint cans and some bird houses.  I'll see how it goes.  You don't know unless you try, and I might as well try.


  1. Oooohhhh, that cake looks so cool! I like both the original and your frosting effects! Glad you're enjoying some time with you mom.
    Good luck with your crafty sales! Your stuff is amazing so it's definitely worth a shot to make some cash from it!

  2. I love that tie-dye cake! So cool.
    Enjoy the visit with your mom and good luck at the Market!

  3. How nice your mom came to visit. I'm sure it's wonderful seeing her spend time with the kids. I just love that cake. So very cool!!! I even love your icing technique. Great banners. You shouldn't have any trouble selling those.

  4. Serene, it was great having her here! The only problem is it goes to fast.

    Thanks Christine! We had fun making the cake. I hope I do well, I'll update when I'm getting started.
