I'm making a Washi Dress, fingers crossed it all works out. Clothes making (human sized) intimidates me.

Did I tell you that we are going to Ireland??? Well, we are! Sooooon. 

So I had to get a 3DS for the long plane ride, and because there is a new Animal Crossing Game, so exciting! I made a cute clutch out of my new fabric to keep it safe, but I didn't measure quite right, and it doesn't fit, whoops.

I bought like 10 things at Target, and they gave a bag for each. I'm so used to SF's no plastic bag law, this just looks wrong to me.

Nan was throwing a "Very Hungry Caterpillar" themed party for him, so I made this amaaaaazing cupcake cake.

She found this link on pinterest, and I replicated it.

The swirled green frosting was a tad tricky, but I did it!
