Two quick pics to share tonight. First, read last night's post. Did you do it? Seriously, do it! Okay, now continue.
Last night I tried to make a free-standing cabin cake like the cabin on Little House on the Prairie. Unfortunately, the prairie can be a dangerous place, and there was a freak tornado that destroyed that cabin. This picture shows the aftermath of the tornado that destroyed the cabin. (Do you like my costume? That's me transformed into Caroline Ingalls.)
After calling my insurance company and finding out that I'm not covered for freak fake tornado accidents that destroy horribly made cabin cakes, I came up with this one-dimensional cabin cake as a stand in for my daughter's birthday party. It's not what I was hoping for, but she liked it. Cake done, party over . . . clean up begins.
I try to teach my kids good manners. I'm not sure how successful I've been though. But when I hear them say "please" or "thank you", I know my persistence is paying off. I try to use good manners on my blog too . . . giving credit where credit is due by linking back to projects or ideas from other crafty bloggers. I ask you to do the same. If, in some rare instance, you are inspired enough to blog about something I tried or use an idea you find here, please link back to me (if it's my idea) or the original blogger. Feel free to use my original ideas and tutorials for personal use only (gifts or self) not for profit!
