I love throwing Parties, and Halloween has been my favorite! Ever since we moved to TX I havn't had one. My reason, first year we didn't know anyone, and this year, I was having a baby anyday and I am in charge of the ward parties, including Halloween. So I was looking through my old Halloween pics from 07 and thought I would share them with you! This was a progressive dinner party with games in between each course!

A friend asked me to make a cake for her husband’s birthday! It was the first time I had been hired out for a cake job. I was nervous when she asked because the only cakes I had decorated in the last years have been Callie's first and second birthdays. It ended up being tons of fun and I really enjoyed getting more practice in. She asked for one like I had made in my cake classes, but I wanted it to be better than that, I think it turned out great and was way cute!

I finally put up the vinyl lettering on C's wall, I had been waiting to find a big cheap chunky picture frame but hadn't found it yet. Then my friend had pictures right on canvas, which I know is expensive to print, but she had mod podged it. Duh, Im a total mod podger. I don't know why I hadn't thought of it. I got it all up. Bought the canvas, $4 printed the pic at Sams Club, glued it on, sanded the sides for effect, then glazed over the top in two coats, took about 1 hour and turned out cute!
C is the inspiration for the quote. Before she turned 2 I caught her swaying in front of the mirror in a dress gazing at herself, and then she said it "a dweam come twu" It clicked later that she was copying Cinderella when the mice make her dress. So cute, so I had to have it for her room!

I found this table set a while back on craigslist and had to have it. The paint job was really poorly done and needed some love and care. I decided that I needed to finish it before this baby came (trying to force myself to do what some of you women have called "nesting"). So I finally sat down and sanded off all the white paint to paint again. Of course I forgot to put up abefore picture, I’m not very good at this craft blogging, but I managed to get a picture of one chair before sanded and after sanded! I was finally persuaded to do a different color by mother and husband after they said why go through all that work just to paint it white again!
