It was the birthday of a co-worker and he requested an Angel Food Cake with orange frosting. I have never had success with frosting so I went for a glaze instead. I'm not here to give a great recipe for a glaze. I just got mine from a Better Homes & Gardens cookbook.

I am just here to say what I always want to say on this blog:

If I can do it, you can do it.

just some more blocks

The homemade gift train keeps on chuggin'. These were for my brother-in-law who is a middle school teacher. I hope they can find a home in his classroom.

card club February

Richard said this card looked very "spring-ish". I didn't do that intentionally, but I won't deny that it was probably my subconscious speaking out.

another homemade gift

I made this apron with the help of Krista. (And the sewing machine of Krista's. Thanks.) It was pretty straight forward and I think it turned out so cute I had a hard time parting with it.

Remember these? No one told me they were ugly. But I figured it out and decided to try something different. I'm painting part of my bathroom that navy color, it is the same paint I used for my little bedside table. I'm trying to tie the brown bedroom and the blue bathroom together a little. I'll post pictures of all that later. Anyway, I repainted the canvanses navy and mod-podged some specialty paper from the scrapbook store on top. It took less than an hour if you don't count drying time. I got the idea from something similar my sister did in her bedroom.

homemade gift #3

I have actually done this one for years for my mom for her birthday. It's a homemade calendar with pictures of family members from the previous year. Not too original. But I have gifts #4,5 and 6 this month so stay tuned!
