Boring Ikea Clock Transformed

Last week my mom, my grandma, and I went to Ikea in San Diego.  It's huge (as most Ikea's are); we were there all day.  We bought dressers, bookcases, and other odds and ends.  I got an idea from this post from Make It-Love it.  I thought it was such a great idea on how to customize a clock.  However, the clock she bought from Ikea was a little expensive and it's not really my style so I bought a different one.



I took apart this message board and cut out a hole in the cardboard cake round then I covered it in brown burlap and attached the little fabric flowers then glued the round frame onto the clock.

The ticking is kind of getting on my nerves but at least it looks good!

Yet Another Haitus

I'm not sure how many people actually read my blog, but I apologize for the hiatus.  Although, I guess 2 months isn't that bad of a break.  I've been so busy since the last time I posted anything.  I've made a couple of trips to California because, well, WE'RE MOVING!  I'm so excited if you can't tell.

But here's what I've been up to.

From Torrey Pines beach in California.  About 5 mins south of Del Mar.

Strawberry Cupcakes with Whipped Strawberry Frosting made for my friends', Andrea and Amanda (their twin sisters), house-warming party.

Yellow Cupcakes with Peanut Butter filling and Chocolate Frosting

Wreath I made for Andrea and Amanda's front door.  My first wreath I love it!

My mom, Me, and our friend, Joanie with the San Diego skyline.

Snickerdoodle Cupcakes with Buttercream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.

Almond Shortbread Cookies, Sour Cream Scones, and Raspberry Oatmeal Scones made for a Red Hat Ladies tea party.

Homemade applesauce made from the apples I bought at Apple Annie's.

Then our Going Away party. :(  We are sad to leave, but excited at the same time.

Well, I think that's all for now.  I have some great projects coming up soon.  Some fun projects for our new condo in California.  So, stay tuned.

Also, I've decided to start up my blog again because I've discovered Picnik.  It's pretty awesome.  And I've also discovered Pinterest.  Oh my gosh you have to check it out.  You'll be pinning like crazy.
