Roo's Fourth Birthday Party

My goodness, where does the time go? I'm pretty sure that it was just last week that we through that monster themed birthday party for Roo. wasn't.  It was three months ago!  Ah, where in the world does the time go?

Well, the party was a huge success.  Roo decided on the theme herself and requested that the colors we used were blue, black, white and silver.  We had a hotdog bar, I made a googly-eyed monster wreath and googly-eyed monster party favors.  The birthday cake was AMAZING: Chocolate cake with peanut butter filling and toasted marshmallow frosting...WOW.  Poor little Roo was not feeling very well, but she still had a great time.  Here are some pictures from her special day.  Enjoy!

What I've been up to

I know I don't blog very often, I always have really good intentions to do so but the thing is, I really, really, really don't like computer work.  I'd so much rather be behind my sewing machine or in front of the Kitchenaid than stuck hen-pecking the keyboard of my laptop.  (I can't type.)

So, that's pretty much where I've been!  Behind my sewing machine or in the kitchen or playing with Roo.  Plus, we went on vacation to Disney World in March.  I have a few things I want to blog about: toasted marshmallow frosting, my two projects that were published in Stitch Craft Create magazine, and a few quilts and other projects that I've been working on.  For now, here's a happy picture of my sweet little girl on Easter.  She's going to grow up thinking that Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny are bikers...nothing wrong with that, right?

See you soon!
