My baby is growing up... This makes me so happy and so sad all at the same time. In just 3 short weeks little miss Luci Rae will be turning 1. How is this possible????? In order to keep from crying and begging her to stay little I am putting my energy into, what else... crafting. I know you are all SHOCKED.
I was telling my BFF the other day that I should have named this blog "while you were sleeping" because that is when I get all of this done, while Luci Rae is napping. Getting ANYTHING done while she is awake would take a person with 6 arms and 3 sets of eyes. My kid is nuts... in a good way of course:) She is very "energetic" as my pediatrician so kindly puts it. She is crawling, almost walking, and eats everything in sight. I swear I could have just swept and mopped and vacuumed for hours and she will still find the one tiny speck that I missed and eat it. (I found a piece of grass in her diaper the other day... processed that is... don't judge, the kid is faster then you could imagine!)
Any WHO, In preparation for Luci's birthday I wanted to have a cake stand. Why you ask?? I have no idea, just wanted one. I decided that I would make one, cause that is what I do. Well, I went to the local thrift store and started looking. I had seen a few blogs out there in blog land where they used candle sticks for the base. I thought what the heck. This is what I found:
I have absolutely no idea what that pillar thing is supposed to be for... maybe a candle, but there is no hole for the candle to go in. Either way I thought it would be perfect. Then I found this circle. It had little notches on the back to hang it on a wall... if anyone can tell me why you would hang a wooden circle on the wall that would be great. This makes no sense, but it was the perfect size for the tray:) I just used my husbands handy dandy screw gun... he wasn't home and I think he was slightly afraid. I just screwed the circle into the pillar and sprayed it with this fun aqua. And viola... my new/old cake stand!
I found the little dome at a thrift store as well... I know you are all shocked again!
I think Luci's cake will look great in it... now I just need to figure out how to bake a cake:)
