Bit of this and that

Wow. This month is FLYING by! Work has been awful, reaffirming the fact that I am needing to get my act together and move on, but that is easier said than done! But things are busy so that keeps me out of trouble (mostly). Next weekend we have our big Roller Derby Fundraiser event and then it is another Atmosphere concert and an Oscar party. Epic month.

Last weekend I headed down to Iowa once again, this time to see my maternal grandmother Marilyn. It was her 80th birthday this weekend so the family came together to throw a little shindig. They had a big cake for the day of but I ordered a little special one from my bakery for her to enjoy the night before.

 Gorgeous right? The most experienced decorator made this cake based on an antique plate. My Grandma collects them and so I thought this would be a little something extra special.
Only problem was I ordered a chocolate cake. Sigh. Apparently working there doesn't mean that they pay any closer attention. Grr. But it was still delicious.

And even though it was my Grandma's birthday she gave me a present.

 A sweet old sewing box! Complete with a vintage sewing pattern and needlework book.

Earlier in the week I also bought my mom and sister these little 'groundhog' cakes for Groundhogs Day. My sister and I enjoyed ours while we watched the movie. No better way to celebrate the day really.

And a trip to the fabric store yielded 4 'grab bags' of odd bits of trim. I got all 4 for only $2.60. Lace, sequins, fur, and ric rac. These little odds and ends can really add up so I am pretty excited!

Well I have signs for the fundraiser to make, and I am starting to do more volunteer work at the local History Center so I will be kept busy!

Oscars are coming up fast. I still need a costume. Also I hope to be posting some movie-crafty-goodness in the near future!!!
