Wedding Cake Topper

I can finally share one of my recent projects! Behold the cake topper!

I love these guys! The bride had her eye on something similar. In typical crafter fashion, I exclaimed, "I can make that!" I'm honored that she trusted me to make such an important part of their day!

Here's a few more pics...

And on the actual cake...

I wish I had a pic of the whole cake table. The sea of cupcakes was a glorious sight to behold.

So Cweeeepy!

Halloween is my fave! I'm essentially a goth-girl gone corporate and I get stupid excited this time of year about all the creepy, spooky things to be found. Normally, I'd have a few projects up my sleeves, but this year there's been zero time for creepy crafts. However, I have been eyeing other people's projects and this one over at This Momma Makes Stuff nearly made me do a happy dance in my seat at work!

Prepare yourself for the spine-tingling terror of....

Zombie Barbies!!!

How simple is this?! Spray paint and Sharpie. Seriously! And it's creepily effective. There's nothing scarier than freaky dolls... Except maybe freaky kids. Redrum!

Ready! Set! Ugh...

I got back Tuesday from the first of two October weddings and it was gorgeous! I had a hand in a couple of crafty projects for the wedding, which I'll share soon.

Just before leaving to come home, I got crazy sick and am having a slow recovery. I think it may be the plague, but I'm not sure. While lying awake Tuesday night, all I could think about was Hyperbole and a Half's Pain Scale. I was definitely around a 7.

My plan is to feel better enough by this weekend to start on the next batch of wedding projects! Look forward to a bunch of pretty red and ivory things!
