Crafty craft baby shower

Posted by Mrs. M

Our friends KB & EC had the baby shower for their first baby last weekend. KBs Mom said I could do the centerpieces. So after a few ideas didn’t pan out like I wanted, I ran across this great website, rookiemoms.com and found the “recipe” for a boozy diaper cake. The cake is made of diapers and the support structure is made of a champagne bottle! It’s a great site if you need crafts and entertainment ideas for your kids. I made some tag monsters to use with the cakes and I also crocheted a baby blanket for KB and with the spare yarn I made a little teady bear I found a pattern for online. Dizzy did something indecent with the bear the morning we were leaving, but Sue managed to get all his stuffing stuck back in, and after I put his little face on, he seemed no worse for the wear. Everyone seemed to like the cakes, and KB got 192 diapers to get her going!

I took all these with the new iphone – and I have to say the focus and camera are significantly improved from the previous version!
