a diaper cake

i made a diaper cake for bin to take to his friend’s baby shower.
there’s quite a bit of pink – but, i think i like it. =)

happy monday, friends!


the boyfriend shopping survival kit

everything you need to keep the bf entertained on those long, but absolutely necessary shopping trips.

inspired by: our 7 hour christmas shopping spree = one very miserable boyfriend. so as part of his christmas gift, i made him this shopping survival kit.


  • for hunger – pretzel, cheese, beef jerky, apple sauce (you only see apple sauce? that’s because i ate the rest. oops. don’t worry, i’ll replenish it!)
  • for sleepiness –  energy pack
  • for boredom –  travel games (poker and blackjack)
  • for contact problems – contact case, solution, eye drops
  • for accidents – band aid

this project was my first experience with zippers and wow, that was kind of a pain! mental note to self: read directions first!

after completion, i also realized that:

  1. i should have chosen a longer zipper
  2. i should have added a strap

being the crazy virgo that i am, these mini-imperfections are driving me mad! i plan to re-make the survival pack soon. maybe a tutorial to follow?

in the mean time… happy friday, friends!
