Edible Bouquet

Tessah & I made this cute edible "flower" bouquet for a coworker's family who just welcomed a new baby girl. We had fun!

The Baumgarten family {daddy Josh, mommy Kristen, sweet rambunctious boys Kimball(6), McKay(5), Benson(3), and baby Eliza due in May} call Vernal, UT home. They are known for their kindness, enthusiasm for life and constant serving of others in church and the community. They recently learned that Josh has a brain tumor. He is recovering from surgery and will soon learn about radiation treatments that will come next. Friends of Josh and Kristen have created a blog and are asking for your help so they can focus on Josh's recovery and Eliza's arrival rather than financial stress.

The Sending Smiles blog is having a handmade auction May 6-May 8 to benefit this family- I have donated an item to this great cause for the Baumgarten family - see thier blog HERE

To check out the auction and bid on my item starting May 6th - click on the Sending Smiles button to the right :)

Join me!!!

I am a proud follower of Sending Smiles - I tried adding the button to the right - but am having technical issues. Please Check it out HERE! It's a great feeling to be charitable....

Also check out the Seasonal Swaperoos button....I joined last fall and have found some wonderful online friends - It's fun to make and shop for gifts for someone you don't "know" and in turn get gifties from all over.... I used to be involved in a few swap groups on flickr....but this is the only one I am a member of now...and the people I have "met" are truly great women and inspirational...

I came across this awesome tutorial for Modge Podge Shoes - and guess what...I did it....I picked up a pair of beat up Dansko Professional Clogs at a thrift store for $3.50 - even in their rough condition it was a heck of a deal. Add some fabric from my stash and Modge Podge and VOILA -

BEFORE : Rough & Ugly

AFTER: Snazzy new clogs :) - One of a kind get the tutorial HERE

Glorianne - it's on the way.....

Another Quilt Finished!

This quilt was made for one of Brent's co-workers new baby. I'm only a few months late on this one!!!! She was born last fall.

It has a pink camo influence (per parents request) - and I loved the way it turned out. This is the first time I have used fleece as a backing with no batting inside - and no real quilting - just stitch in the ditch.
