atc galore

Here's a picture of Isabella. She's growing so quick. She'll have the longest conversations with you about nothing in particular it's too funny. She loves making long speeches very loudly too but you just can't help but love her, even if she is bad sometimes. She is two after all. I think soon it will be time to have another one. I'm contemplating April maybe. We'll see how things go. Maybe i'll just surprise you one day. Here are a bunch of atc's i've done lately. i just love swap-bot and join as many as i can. these are some i did for swaps. sometimes i wish i could keep them cause i like them so much but i let them go sadly to other people's homes where they will take good care of them, i hope lol.

My cake

Turned out great, I'll have to upload pics when I get home (at least they are on my comp that's a step up lol) it was a hit at the party. I could have done better but for my first time you know I tried. Plus not to mention I did a three layer square instead of a two layer round. Next time I will make it round though. Square was really hard. So I have to upload my atc pics lately too i have tons. I've been contemplating about doing 1 a day. obviously it can't start on the 1st since it's already the 27th but i can start feb 1 and do it that way. Also I've been contemplating doing a journal prompt type thingy. Maybe. We shall see what happens. I can always start things it's just finishing them that is the problem. hehe. obviously.

will update more after lunch ...

here's the birthday girl .. oh to be 15 again how differently i would do some things and then pictures of just the cake from the front and from the sides. again i'm not a professional but i think it turned out quite nice.

Here's a picture of my little helper lol. She is such a mess but too funny for words sometimes. She wanted to ice some of the cupcakes so i gave her some of the extras and let her have at it.

I love baking but i really have to be in the mood for it. We'll see what the next project will be.

I'm still alive ... no joke.

So i know i haven't updated in a long time. With this new job my whole life style pretty much had to change. i have less time at home and with my daughter and even less time to do personal things. I've been addicted to atcs and once i upload the pictures I'll make sure and post what I've been up to lately. But i come here with another great thing i love to do and make. Cakes.

This is the cake I plan to start on tonight. It will probably take me I don't know maybe three days to make. One day to make the cakes and let them cool off, one day to make the fondant bows and cut the remaining pieces, and one day to roll the fondant onto the cake and get it put together. Cross your fingers that I get my fondant to roll out the right way. And oh btw the cake I'm making is like this but square. i wanted to make it more like a present. It's for my friends daughter who's birthday was yesterday (i forgot to call and wish her happy bday but i forgot, oh well i will be making her a cake that's good enough). Anyways we are having a surprise party for her on Saturday. I really hope this cake turns out perfect i really really do. Cross your fingers please. Tonight I'm baking the cakes it will be all chocolate cause what girl doesn't love chocolate.

I will try and take some pictures of the products and the process or at least the ending result of the day :-) I'm so excited I just can't wait to start. Well I can cause I wouldn't mind going to sleep early but now that I know that's never going to happen ha ha. I will see what I can do.

Right now I'm at work and I should probably be working but I really don't want to. It's 10 am and I'm ready to either A. go to lunch or B. just go home. I wish it could be the latter but I know it's neither, cause I still have 2 hours until lunch time. Not that I'm hungry cause I'm not. I just want to get out of here as soon as possible. I'm so over work you know what I think I hate the most that every single time we don't make our number (which is every week I kid you not) we are constantly threatened that one of our jobs is on the line. I really dislike that very much. Don't threaten me to do a better job. It's not my fault we are out of stock on product. It's not my fault the customers don't pay on time (times are tough), it's not my fault that the orders aren't coming in. After all I'm just a Sales Administrator I'm not the SalesMAN. It just sucks constantly being reminded that you could be gone at the drop of a hat. Like as if we didn't have enough to worry about in this world I also have to constantly think about my job and how I might lose it. This threatening demeanor does not make me want to work harder. It only makes me want to leave faster.

Nothing else really is going on in my life right now. Just the norm day to day routines. Another day, another dollar.
