Up to my eye balls in boxes..

I think if I never saw another cardboard box in my life I’d be quite happy. Who knew we had so much stuff to unpack! I think it’s more of a challenge as we still have odds and ends left at the other house, so I’m making a couple of trips trying to get the last of it over here. My little helpers really aren’t that helpful, so that doesn’t make things easy either.

We have managed to get the living room, dining room and sitting room for the most part done. Last night when the kids were in bed we put up pictures, and added my touches to the rooms. It’s starting to look like home. The poor office looks like my whole craft stash exploded in the room – it was all kept in our master closet in the other house as we didn’t really have a closet in our old office, well now I’m thinking I should’ve used the master bedroom in this house as the office just so I could have a walk in closet for all of my craft stuff! I didn’t realize until you condensed it  into one room how much stuff I actually have, and there’s still a box or two out in the garage needing to be brought in and unpacked! No wonder Rick hates it when I go to the craft store “shopping”.

I will try and post some pictures of the rooms that are finished as well as the “visitors” we had last night in our drainage ditch.

I must run as I’m trying to get a few more things done before Rick gets home in about an hour.

Whew.. I’m glad I got it finished!

Well as you can see by the time stamp on this post, it took me all evening to get Missy’s cake finished.

Making the fondant decorations for her cake wasn’t the complicated part. It was attaching them to the lollypop sticks and tooth picks that I found difficult. I think I have also set a record for the amount of frosting used on one cake! I used 3 cans of frosting, which to date has been the most I think I’ve ever used, except for when I did my first cake as I buggered that up and had to start all over again *oops*

Okay enough of the rambling, I’m sure you just want to see my finished cake. First of all I want to show you the cake I copied. I was searching online for Hannah Montana birthday supplies – this is the theme Missy picked for this years birthday, and I stumbled across this cake and knew this was the one! I showed Missy and of course that was it, there was no looking at other cakes that was the one she wanted.

Here’s the cake created by Cake it or Leave it

and here’s my attempt.

my hand made number 5. I’m quite impressed with that as I’ve never done anything like this before. I think for my first attempt it’s pretty darn good, especially when I just had a picture to go off of. Lets just hope it meets Missy’s approval in the morning, and can hold out for our car ride to the bowling alley.

I’ll post pics of the party once we get home
