My to do list of crafts...

First of all, thank you Kalle for showing me this batik idea. 
We're going to make homemade t-shirts with our Young Women using this easy technique and kids glue.  Have a peek here to see how to do it.

I'm going to make a few of these sun jars for girls camp in June.
I've seen lots online, but I think I'll try using vinyl lettering to personalize mine (and use my new Silhouette Cameo, so excited!).

What will I do with pom poms, who knows but I remember making them as a child,
  this version looks a whole lot easier!  Follow her tutorial here.

This is a great idea for a little someone, they're magnetic too!
Go here to see her tutorial and here to download the doll and clothes.

Mmmmm, cake

This cake is the next thing on my list to make. 

Doesn't it look delicious!  You can find the recipe at Urban Fruits, it calls for Maltesers 
(those are the lovely round chocolates on the top of the cake) 
which aren't to be confused with Whoppers.  
You can get Maltesers at World Market, they're malted milk flavored balls covered in REAL milk chocolate.

I have eaten my way through an extra 5 pounds of holiday cheer (including a bag of Maltesers), do you know that 3500 calories make one pound...just sayin'.  
So maybe I'll be making this cake and all I'll get to do is look at it!
