Holy Cow!!

I have seen this sort of post LOTS of times and never really thought I would be making one of my own ...

I am now a Design Team Member for the new challenge blog Crafting When We Can Challenges !!!!!  I can't tell you how excited I am about this! I think my daughters are almost as excited as I am. They were both jumping up and down and doing more than a little hollering... and they are grown up young ladies :)

I hope you all will come by on Sunday, Sept 4th   to see my first project for this awesome new challenge. I have made a card that I am so happy with and can't wait to share it with you.

Crafting When We Can Challenges

As always, thanks for stopping by :)

Diaper Tricycle

Hello everyone! This is my mom's blog, she is the crafty one in the family, but it's amazing how my talent can be drawn out just by watching her work on her projects.
I had a baby shower to go to this weekend and already had a diaper cake made for the mother-to-be. Mom sent me a link to a blog with this diaper tricycle by Paulette at So I took apart the diaper cake and made this tricycle. Let me tell you this was a huge hit at the party. When I told the mother-to-be and her mom that I used size 3 diapers so you can have it on display in the baby's room. Her mom told her NOT to take it apart ever! I guess they really liked it! Her brother is having a baby in a couple months, I think I am going to make one for them too.
The directions call for size 1 diapers, but I like using larger sizes so they don't take it apart right away, but bigger diapers means bigger bike. I had to use a swattling blanket to keep the tires together instead of a receiving blanket.
Thank you for stopping by and checking out my first contribution to the blog. Now that I know how easy this is I have to go find more of my projects to post.
Thank you, Kate
