Long time…no post

Wow it has been a long time since I last posted!  So this is going to be a heavy picture post to catch up on everything.

Dancing With the Clarendon County Stars



We danced to Singles Ladies and came in 4th place for talent!  Hunter is an amazing dancer.  I had an absolute blast participating and over 73 thousand dollars was raised for two charities.

Kansas City


Smallcakes!  These were so delicious no wonder the owner was invited to be star on Cupcake Wars.  Unfortunately he forgot the main ingredient in the first challenge and was honest, so they had to disqualify him.  Which in turn earned him a spot on the view.  Check out their website


We stopped at the Arch!

Baby Gifts

I have been invited to several baby showers recently.  So these are gifts that I made for all the new mommy to bes.


Cupcake onesies, tutorial found here


Washcloth lollipops, very easy to google a tutorial


Eat. Play. Sleep. Repeat.  I quilted this for a college friend and roomie.  This is for her new baby girl Isabelle.  The gender was unknown until delivery, so I choice bright primary colors for either a boy or girl to enjoy.  This pattern is compliments of V. and Co


And the latest project a minky blanket.  I followed the general outline here.  Mine is a little bit bigger.  This is a for a baby girl.

Pinterest Fun

So if any of you are on Pinterest you have probably seen the crayon art pin.  Well I tried it to see what all the fuss was about, plus I had some ideas for doing something different with it and needed to see how the wax would do.  So here is my crayon art……..




I put random colors next to one another instead of keeping like colors together. I think the impact is greater when it looks more like the color spectrum.  I think that the use of the hair dryer on high at close range caused for the splatters, and running together of colors, but I like the overall effect.  Unfortunately the wax would be a problem for me to create what I wanted to create with the crayon art.

I guess I have been busy since my last post.  My Saturdays are dominated by FOOTBALL, especially Clemson Tiger football.  I hope they continue their winning streak this Saturday against Boston College.
