Awaiting Baby Robinson...
I had a great weekend attending my wonderful sister-in-law Sarah's baby shower! I had been very busy with lots of stamping and crafting for this big day, and am so excited to share with everyone! I found a great idea on making a diaper cake on susiestampalot's blog, so my mother-in-law and I tackled that challenge last weekend. So much fun! It was fairly easy once we got into a rhythm of rolling up the diapers and the best part was decorating. It was a definite hit at the shower and made a great centerpiece for the drink table. Another project we also made last weekend were the favor bags. In each bag was a Bath Bubbles Yankee Candle, body lotion or shower gel, Tea of Life tea bag and Lindt chocolate duck. The tags were made with the Big Shot, stamped with a duck from Bundled in Love (SU) and inside the tag was a little poem about waiting for the baby to be born. We stuffed some paper shreds in them and tied them up with Sale-A-Bration ribbon. This week I made food tents to display on the table to let everyone know what they were eating...and did we had some pretty yummy things to eat! Sarah's best friend Jen and her mom made an AMAZING duck cake that tasted so good, we were all standing around eating the cake and frosting with our fingers (this was after all the guests had left!) My mother-in-law (who's a wonderful cook) did most of the heavy lifting with the food prep and even my DH contributed by making a lovely orzo salad. It was so much fun seeing lots of family and friends and watching Sarah open lots of very cute baby gear. Now all we need is Baby Robinson!
