With August came the sun and heat (finally) and a very busy month. We have been camping with family, took an amazing houseboat trip, continued on our bathroom renovations, had the kids each attend a week of hockey school and power skating and prepared to return to school and work. With all that has been going on my craft table has been sadly neglected :-( We are slowly getting back into routines at home again and I can hear the call of my stamps, patterned paper and copics! I am attending a crop on September 23-25 with some great friends and am feeling the itch to get back to crafting.
The one crafty thing I did recently was my daughter's birthday cake. I love decorating cakes and was excited when she picked out a monkey cake she liked. Here is the cake I came up with:
As much as I enjoyed doing the cake, my daughter's excitement of how it turned out was what made it the best. She told me it was "Awsome!" and that I am the best Mom ever - if that doesn't make it worthwhile I don't know what does.
We are just putting some final touches in our bathroom and I hope to post before and after pictures later this week.
Hope everyone enjoyed their summer and was able to get in a bit more card making/scrapbooking than I did. I am off to clear the clutter off my craft table now and get down to some projects.
