Tis the season!
Slowly starting to get out and organize my christmas decorations. With every box I open I find memories of my grandmothers. This box contained some of my Dept 59 houses...this one bought by my Grandma as a christmas present back in 2002 right before I moved to Belgium. Oh what memories these boxes contain....since I did not decorate last year inside, Steve has no idea what is in store lol
Baked my cake tonight for tomorrows decorating lesson....looking forward to it!

Wilton Cake Class #1
I survived the first class...did fairly will if I say so myself lol The class is small - only 3 people which is nice. Spent most of the class talking about different methods and tools, but at the end got to practice stars and decorating cookies....fun! I won a carrying caddy for all my tools....will be able to keep evening organized and in one place now!
I have a few pictures to share from week one. Excited for this wednesday as we will be decorating a cake and learning more techniques...will be good to see how much I progress each week through these classes!

Let them eat cake!
Well if you are going to let them eat cake, it might as well be decorated prettily right? So to make my cakes pretty I have signed up to take the Wilton Cake Decorating class number one at my local Jo Ann's!
The class starts tonight for 2 hours and then also for the next 3 Wednesdays! Super excited about making my cakes pretty! What fun!
Anyone taken these courses or have any advice to impart other than to practice practice practice?
Happy crafting...and decorating! :)

Christmas Lights and Stockings!
Spent the weekend back in Michigan helping my Dad put up Christmas lights. For those who do not know, my father fell off his roof back in April and has slowly been recovering. Knowing that he should not be on ladders and the roof again, we packed up the car and away we went. The dogs had great fun spending the weekend at my parents - lots of spoiling!
I also started work on my next project...a christmas stocking for Steve! Not sure if I will 1. Get it done by Christmas or 2. Ever get it done, but will have fun with it in the mean time!
