Will someone {please} come over and see how cute this thing is?!

I'm so sorry for not posting! I've had a funeral, a baby shower and everything in between this past week. Somewhat chaotic . . . but nothing that I'm not use to I guess?! So, check.it.out . . . .


Finally, I know! I got tons of you guys asking if I was going to post pictures!? Ha! That would be cruel if I didn't!


The pictures really don' t do it justice - it is sooo cute! I love it!

Each of those beads are sewn on {by me!} I now know why all those beaded dresses cost out the wa-zoo! I just didn't want to glue them on! Not on a canvas this large! Now, on the smaller ones, I will.

And we had to top it with a cherry! It makes me feel good when I ask my 3 year old what something is after I paint it and he sees it to tell me! He knew it was a "strawberry cupcake" with "lots of sprinkles" {and he picked out his fav-O-rite sprinkle in the bunch!} and "has a fat cherry on the top." Then he tells me "you did a pretty swell job on that painting, Mom!" {I swear he talks like that!} Swell?! I have no idea where he even heard that!

I have a Bible study group tonight - guys, don't be surprised if I bring this with me! I want someone to see it before I ship it!

So, what do you think about this diaper cake?? No, I didn't make it - but it was at the shower I went to last week. How cute is that?! I'm not joking when I say it has to be the BEST one I've ever seen! Ever! I really like how the diapers are "hidden" AND it was her first one that she EVER made?! What a great job! I'm still impressed!

Em had her first sucker! She sucked it down to nothing but a stick and it only took her about 5 minutes! She was a sticky mess but it was totally worth it!

For those who questioned - yes, it was my birthday . . . . thanks for the well wishes!

This is so yummy...was it hard to push a needle through the canvas? I never would have thought to sew them on. It is so cheery and fun.

Sarah said...

You're always full of inspiration. I absolutely LOVE your canvases -- always a masterpiece. And while you didn't make the diaper cake, you're right -- it's the cutest one I've ever seen. My good friend is due soon with her first baby, and I just think that may make the cutest centerpiece ever. Thanks for sharing so much inspiration!
