I have moved!! Check out my new site: www.froelichmeanshappy.com !!
See you there!!
I feel like everyone I know is either getting married or having babies. Except for me of course, I'm just getting crafty and having messes.
Yesterday was the baby shower for one of my favorite and sweetest cousins, Amanda. Its the same shower I made the cake in a mugs for. Check those out here: http://someday-baby.blogspot.com/2012/01/five-minute-mug-cakes.html
This was the toughest shower to buy/craft for. EVER.
The happy couple have decided to wait to find out whether they are having a boy or a girl. This means everything had to be gender neutral. If you haven't been shopping for baby stuff in a while, let me tell you, pretty much EVERYTHING says boy or girl on it. We had to hunt just to find a generic baby card.
AND since they don't know the baby's gender, they don't have an official name. This is hard for me because I love to put baby's name on everything when I make gift baskets. Soo I settled on putting Baby Markham on there instead.
My basket ended up a little more boyish than I wanted, but its still pretty cute. The theme of the shower was Underwater so I tried to do watery colors and it ended up a little too blue and green.

Bumbo (Which was supposed to be yellow, but the one I got was blue.)

oh my GOD.. I wish you guys could have seen the amazing diaper bag my aunt made for her. I don't have any pictures, but holy crap man. Talk about talent. It looks like something out of a fancy baby boutique on Rodeo Drive or something.
I'm still working on my sewing skills.
Unfortunately, I've become mildly addicted to Pinterest. My list of things I want to make keeps getting longer and longer and longer and my list of things I HAVE made isn't.
