Bad Blogger

If there were an award for bad blogger I would certainly be a nominee for it!  Sorry the summer has pulled me away and I have been busy and figured that mostly what I had to post would probably bore you to pieces!  BUT just in case you need some easy reading and some pictures to go with it here you go!  I have been a might busy with traveling and all!  Just finished up a weekend of entertaining!  Megan (my stepdaughter) and I had a baby shower for Jill (my stepdaughter in law) this weekend!  It sounds so complicated doesn't it?  I never thought I would be a step mother I always tended to think of them as being wicked as in Cinderella and hope I never fit that bill!  Thought I would show you something I made for the newest to be baby girl in the family.....

I used a picture frame (a rather large one) sprayed painted it... took  a piece of foam board and cut it to size, then I covered the foam board with batting, and then a pretty pink fabric, and glued that together and then place ribbons the length of the foamboard to hold barettes!  What you don't see is that after this picture was taken I (Mark) drilled 7 holes in the bottom of the frame and screwed in cup holder hook already painted white to hold head bands!  I also hot glued ribbon on the back to hang this on the wall!  I made the new baby girl about 6 head bands with some really cute flowers and I forgot to take a picture!  I hate it when that happens!  So you will just have to take my word that they were cute!

Megan made the diaper cake which was really cute and loaded with lots of things for the new baby!

Here are some pictures of Jill opening her presents! 

And here is Jill showing us her talent of making a beautiful flower out of tissue paper!

Hope you enjoyed the pictures!  It was a small intimate shower but I think everyone enjoyed the morning brunch!
