Diaper Clutch

This diaper clutch was made for a friend's friend. They knew they were having a boy so I got some great boy fabric from Country Quarter, my local quilting shop. My friend loved the clutch and changing pad and was excited to give this diaper clutch to her friend. This is a great shower gift or a welcoming baby gift. Moms are loving that they only have to grab a diaper and a small package of wipes to go to the park, shopping, etc. and they get to carry it in a great small bag. I wish I had one when my kids were in diapers.

Ottawa Senators Birthday Cake

My oldest son's favourite hockey team is the Ottawa Senators. So of course he wanted an Ottawa Senators birthday cake. I found a picture of the Ottawa Senators logo on the internet and printed it out in colour. I decided it would be too hard to cut the cake into the shape of the Senator, but I knew if I coloured the icing black and used round cake pans I could make a puck. Luckily my son agreed to a hockey puck cake with the Senator on it. I just free-handed the design onto the iced puck cake and filled it in. It's not exact, but the birthday boy and his friends thought it was "sick". From what I gather that's good!

Great Teacher Christmas Gift Idea

My kids love to make gifts for their teachers. The boys made these snowman pins for their teachers with a little help from me. They picked out the buttons and ribbon from my stash. I glued the buttons together and glued the ribbon and felt hats to the snowman. Then I glued the snowman to broach pins. This was a quick gift to make and an excellent teacher gift.
