my spot

I'm not by any means a professional, but I'm making an attempt to have some fun and my idea of fun is making cakes and decorating them, or painting canvas. I found a great website that is full of ideas and now I've started to try to make stuff for my friends and family. This is my little corner of the internet to post some pics of what I've done so far and those sites full of ideas for future things to do

blank spot

There's a blank spot at work where a picture needs to be. I've been trying to think of something to go there and while going through the internet I was inspired by a picture of birch trees.

I almost ran out of white paint, but I kind of like the rough effect of the paintings not being perfect.

creative craving satisfied

Had one of those days today when I desperately needed a creative outlet. It was either reupholster a piece of furniture, find a wall to paint, rearrange furniture, or paint an empty canvas picked up yesterday. The rearranging and canvas won :-)

still obsessed with Wall-e

My youngest claims to be Wall-e's number one fan and has the utmost respect for him (his actual words) so when his 6th birthday was arriving, he knew exactly what he wanted for a cake. Considering that I've forgotten his birthday before and he only wanted cupcakes last year, I agreed a Wall-e cake would be done.

I did feel a little rushed with this guy and the fondant was really soft - but since he's my first fully detailed cake - I'm pleased with the end result. He didn't turn out too bad :-)
