Alyssa and a Topsy Turvey Cake

At the very end I helped Alyssa with adding the balls and staking
the cake. Other than that she pretty much did this on her own...

This is the first cake that Alyssa has made for someone else.....took her several
days to make all of the detailed flowers and such.
But it was so cute.
The flowers are from gum paste. But the balls are from
homemade fondant (she uses marshmellows) Many of the woman
at the party were commenting on how good the balls were.
Guess those were the ones who like marshmellows.

The kitchen was a bit of a mess there but the cake turned out.

Here is the birthday girl, Sue, with her cake....she seemed
to really like it!

Can You Guess?

So, I've dug out the old sewing machine -- the poor thing, I had gotten it from a yardsale and it is starting to wear out. Hope to find one this year at a yardsale. Anyway, can you guess what I'm making? I'm soon done - but I broke my last sewing machine needle so I gotta get some of those today, than I can finish up.
So take a guess -- what is it?

Long Week

This week my kids had 3 days of PSSA testing for school...this was held in Lewisburg.....we had to leave the house by 7:30 to get there in time....testing for the younger kids was in the morning and the older kids in the afternoon. SOOOOOO, that means, I got to spend the entire day in Williamsport. On Monday it was 8:45 to 5:00 and Tuesday/Wednesday 8;45 to I had to be creative and find some things to occupy my mind.

Ohhhhh, Jo Ann's -- We do not have one close so I enjoyed this store....purchased material to create a couple purses and aprons....I'm really looking forward to doing that.

And, of coarse we googled thrift shops...we went to 4 different thrift shops. Next week we have testing on Wednesday, and the following week as well. Soooo, we will return to the thrift shops. You never know what treasure it to be had. And it is more in my budget than other places.

I love TJ never fails to share something that I love. The decor section is wonderful.

And Ross - we always love to go here as well, great clothes and home decor.

So, I must say that it wasn't "terrible" to be stuck around all of those wonderful
