So, it been a while

like the title says, its been awhile since I last blogged, and for no other reason as I really couldn't be bothered. Since the death of my brother in law in late May I haven't really felt like doing much to be honest.

Rick was a big part of our lives and routine is weird now. When Sunday rolls around and we're not all piling into the car to go see him. Even right now I'm sitting here at 1:30pm on a Sunday afternoon watching Vinnie and Jon playing the X box and I still feel like we should be getting ready to leave.

So over the past month in a half I have started lots of things and haven't really finished anything enough to show you, started painting my out door bench seat and table but haven't finished them, started recovering my couch, but again haven't finished, started altering a birdcage but haven't finished, started making the kids some pillowcase mattress things but again haven't finished them. Even Annabel's room isn't finished yet and I started that months ago Time to get out of this funk I thinks week might have to be a finishing week.

But for today I'm going to show a Lo I did about a week ago. first in ages that I have done. And a cake I made.

Just wanted to make a bright funky Lo this week in contrast to the b/w photo.

 So I decided I wanted to try fondant icing, we are getting ready for birthday season around here and with Vinnie deciding he wants a big castle cake this year and miss not really knowing what she wants just yet I am experimenting early.  This cake is my first go at fondant not to bad I think ..its a bit ruff around the place but I didn't have much fondant to work with and rolled it out to thin, but ill know for next time so its all good as far as I'm concerned, plus I had such fun!!

So I really do hope to be back real soon with something else actually finished.

Thanks for looking
