I started working on some of my Christmas layouts last night and realized that I didn't post the December Workshop pictures yet. Although the workshop is done, I wanted to post the pictures for you so you can hopefully be inspired to start scrapbooking your Christmas photos as well.
I am working in 4 other Christmas layouts right now and will get those posted for you shortly, so stay tuned over the next few days.....
A fun Christmas Tree cake. I made this cake for the kids Christmas party at daycare tomorrow. I was going to make something with a lot more detail, however I just found out today that the party is tomorrow rather then Thursday so in a time crunch this is what I came up with.
This was a fun cake to make. My daycare provider asked me to make a tractor cake for her Dad's birthday this weekend. The wheels and hay stacks are made from rice krispie treats and covered in chocolate fondant. The cake will be delivered tomorrow and hopefully it will be what she is looking for.
My son always wants to help me make cakes. So I thought this would be the perfect project for him and I do build together. He was so happy to finally help and be allowed to touch without getting in trouble.

I have one section of the kitchen cupboards done. I love how nice and crisp they look. My before picture didn't turn out great at all but here is a after picture of the top section I have done as well as one the shows the bottom cupboards so you can see what they looked like before.
I think I am hanging up my paint brush until after Christmas now, so will finish it off then and start planning a new counter :)
I must admit my timing on my latest project is purely bad. I have a cupcake workshop to start preparing for, Christmas baking to start, a cake order or two to work on and of course a ton of Christmas presents to wrap. Plus I am dying to get some scrapbooking done.
So of all the items above, what do I start doing this weekend......remodeling my kitchen. Am I crazy???? We have lived in this house for 5 years and I have always hated the kitchen, so on Friday I decided enough was enough and I bought myself some paint, new knobs and hinges and started to work away. While it's now Sunday and I am only a 1/4 of a way through painting the cupboards. So far loving the way it looks but can't stand to look at how much work is still ahead of me. Once the painting is done I want to do the counters and a backsplash and hopefully have a kitchen I can finally stand looking at....he-he.
I will take some pictures as I go and post my new kitchen :)

Did you manage to get into the Close to my Heart sale today? If not don’t worry, you still have time but items are going fast!
I logged in right at 11:00am to take advantage of these great deals. It was a very slow process with the overload of people on the system but I was lucky enough to get all but 2 of the items that were on my wish list.
Now I have to sit and wait a couple of weeks for that man in brown that I love so much to bring me my goodies.
