The Ultimate Blog Party 2012!

Ultimate Blog Party 2012I'm so pleased! I'd thought I'd missed it, but I'm just managing to skid in before the official end of this year's Ultimate Blog Party, hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom

Here's a little share about me and my blog; I began this blog back in 2008, as a way to connect with other mom bloggers and to chronicle the bliss of being mom to my most adorable little girl (Pudding Pie). I write occasional product reviews and lately I've been considering veering off into making this an outlet for my resurgence of interest in baking and sewing. I've held off because I'm no gourmet cook, nor am I master sewer, but I've decided it will be a fantastic way to get feedback, improve and be inspired. So, in honor of the 6th UBP, here are my culinary and crafty and creations from the past 2 weeks: (drum roll...)

The Easter Cake - Vanilla with Lemon Buttercream and homemade marshmallow fondant!

A sundress for Pudding Pie - first time I've sewn in almost 2 decades! The dress turned out great, but I made some rather significant size miscalculations and it is way too big, so Pudding Pie will not be wearing it until next spring...

That's a little about me and my interests, I'd love your comments! And come join the fun! Visit 5 Minutes for Mom and celebrate their 6th UBP!
