Congratulations on Your Nightmare!

This was a cake for a different kind of baby shower. This customer was having a Halloween themed baby shower and wanted a Nightmare Before Christmas themed cake. I made a 14 inch chocolate sheet cake with buttercream frosting.

Busy Life

Six months ago on any given week night you could find me doing homework in effort to complete my MBA or relaxing on the couch watching some TV. Well times have changed I now have my master’s degree and am putting my education to use in the craft room and on the volleyball court. You are probably wondering what crafts and volleyball have to do with a master’s degree and the answer is NOTHING! I just enjoy making things and getting a little exercise.

My schedule has been completely crazy for the last month or so. I have been playing volleyball three nights a week in different recreation leagues, scorekeeping Washburn University volleyball 1-2 nights per week, fulfilling cake orders, plus leisure activities like KU football games, NASCAR at Kansas Speedway, going to a comedy club, PBR this weekend and crafting in any spare time.

I have many new ideas and projects that are in the works and I am excited to start posting pictures. I guess I should add blogging to my schedule too, so it gets done.
