Got Milk?

My poor husband...he's been waiting for me to make this cake since April. It was supposed to be for his birthday. The date came and went, so I promised to make it for Father's Day. Yeah...that day passed too. So today, out of the blue, I decided to finally bake it. Normally I would put a little wax paper under the cake to avoid getting frosting on the plate but I'm too tired to be so picky, and my husband will be so happy he finally got his cake, that he won't even notice.

Check out more crafty goodness over at Waiting for Him. I'm off to get me a cold glass of milk.

Retro Housewife...Not!


As a 1930s wife, I am
Very Poor (Failure)

Take the test!

Not sure what it takes to be a good 1930's wife but whatever it is I ain't got it!

Sew Crafty Friday-Gift Bags

These are some gift bags I made for my daughter's Qianjiang sisters. The girls are from the same orphanage and were in our travel group. The girls and their families are having a reunion in Pensacola beach this weekend but unfortunately we cannot attend. One of the families lives nearby and is taking the bags with them.

The bags are gift bags purchased at a local party supply store. I used my Cricut for the embellishments. The seahorse was cut with the Doodlecharms cart and for the tag I used George.

Every family is bringing inexpensive gifts for all seven girls in the group so once it's all said and done; they will each have a ton of goodies to enjoy.

For my giftbags I purchased the following: washable watercolor set, small plaster kitty or dog to paint, one tanktop, sandal-shaped notepad, fish stickers, bag of panda shaped cookies, crazy straw, inflatable fish, and a painted wooden letter of their initial.
