Diaper Cakes!

Two weekends ago, I traveled over to Seattle to attend a couple baby showers for my good friends Kristen and Kelsey. We had a lot of fun getting the babies to kick for their aunties and admiring all of the cute stuff they got. For my gift, I decided to make diaper cakes... sounds kind of disgusting, right? Well, just to clarify, the diapers are brand spanking new. Think 3-layer wedding cake, minus all of the cake and frosting plus a bunch of diapers and baby goodies. Okay, enough explanation, I'll let the pics speak for themselves...

If anyone needs a fun shower gift, let me know! I absolutely LOVE making these and would be thrilled to help you come up with a theme and create a personalized cake that reflects the mama's personality :)

Wedding Countdown... 3 months to go!!!

Holy cow, I just looked at my little wedding countdown and can't even believe it! It feels like we have been engaged for sooooo long and we're finally getting closer!!! I'm getting so excited... I just ordered my invitations on Monday from Costco.com, they are really stinkin' cute and CHEAP! By far the best prices I have seen. I was really tempted to make my own, but was slightly discouraged after handwriting all of the addresses on our save-the-dates (all 200 +)... even that was a lot of work!!! Don't get me wrong, I love an art project, and I have pretty fabulous handwriting if I do say so myself, but I would suggest to any other bride to get the return address printed on the envelope and hire a caligrapher, 'nuf said. Anyway, here's a sample of what they will look like, with slightly different wording:




Oh, you love them? Me too! They are very "Lindsay". I would also like to share some of my engagement pics done by one of my incredibly talented bridesmaids, Kristen Honeycutt (http://www.kristenhoneycutt.com/)... gotta plug the business :)






I need to learn how to post pictures without distorting them... sorry Kristen! Anyway, here's a link to her blog where you can see the originals and the rest of her amazing work! http://www.khoneycuttgallery.blogspot.com/
