The Blog Oath and some!

So everyday that I don't post, I think to myself "I need to post today!". Then the day goes by and before I know it another day has gone by. Which brings me to the conclusion that posting in my blog has to be a committment for me. Therefore, I am making a public pledge or "Blog Oath" to not allow more than two days of non blogging go by. You see, if I write it publicly...well, then I can't allow myself to not do it. Oh the psychological games we play with ourselves-lol! Please don't get me wrong, I love it's just finding the time to take the time. With that being said...

This past week we had and a "Spring Element Swap". With Earth representing the element. I decided to make these wet felted wool earth balls. It's also perfect timing for "Earth Day". I can't wait to check out what everyone else has made. There are some very crafty mama's in the group. I'm just lucky to be able to try my hand at new crafts- a la natural! It really has given me back some much needed "Mama Time". It's important to take time for oneself and the things you may enjoy doing. I think sometime's we tend to forget about ourselves. So, I'm very glad to have found that again. It creates an important balance in my life.

On Easter Sunday we had a "Cake Walk" at our church. Talk about fun! I've never done one before and was pleasantly amazed at what a great time everyone had. Especially the spectator's!

I absolutely love vintage cookbooks, and since I also signed up to bring a cake for the cake walk, I decided to try something out of this old Betty Crocker cookbook. It has some great cake decorating tips! I'm sure many of you have seen this cake before, but it was my first time trying it out. Technically, it is rather small so I did use the second round as the bed of grass to lay the bunny on. I just dyed some of the same coconut shavings green to make the grass on the first layer. Then added the undyed coconut on the bunny itself to make the rabbit's hair. It was really fun to make and surprisingly easy! Of course I had to take the pic with Zoe in there, is her first Easter.


  1. I love the spring element swap! Aren't these swaps fun? I try to do one at a time so that I'm not overwhelmed. I think that your blog oath sounds wonderful. I'll be looking for your posts. Good luck!
