This was my first swap I participated in and it was a blast. The Swap was called the 1/4inch bakery. The first picture are the items I made. Layer cake, a plate of cakesters, and a 4th of July sheet cake. If you want to know how I made them. I took the little foam dots that are used for scrapbooking to give a 3D effect. I put two together, they are already white so I didn't have to ice them just decorate them. Some I painted, and others I used finger nail decorations. Worked great. For the cakesters, I punched out 1/8th circles from black textured scrapbook paper and then took white air dry clay to use for the filling. The sheet cake is made from the white foam scrapbooking stuff. I cut it to size and hand painted the flag on it. For the round platters I used mini metal coins, and aluminum foil for the sheet cake.
The second picture is the items I received from the swap. I was like a little kid at Christmas when I got the package and opened it. There is some great talent out there and I'm glad to be a part of it. Till next time, stay safe and laugh.

Another Week

Here it is another week here and gone. Boy times seems to fly when you are having fun and more so when you get older. Didn't work on my bathroom room this week. I made over 50 ornaments . Not too bad! Right? The craft show is Nov, 14th and its just around the corner, so I will be concentrating on the ornaments and putting the bathroom on the back burner till after the show.
