Hahahaa! rightly so too :D

Cake pops - AMAZING. I found a recipe on Pinterest. Basically, what you do is bake a cake, allow to cool then crumb (we used a food processor) & mix in some fondant icing so you create a dough, roll in to small balls & we poured melted chocolate over them & then sprinkles. The "actual" recipes suggest that you put a stick in them - it makes dipping them in chocolate a lot easier. We had no sticks, but wanted cake pops so just used cupcake cases.

Er, here's a recipe I found earlier to share with someone else:

Reindeer sex hat is the best hat in the world ever. I'm just imagining a cringeworthy Christmas jumper with similar on to give to an old relative and them not realising hahahaha
:)
I started this ages ago but only just got around to finishing, it's for the lovely miss phexxie
As usual my photography "skills" have failed me haha the binding was only actually pinned down at this point so looks uneven. I was just so annoyed at having to not finish it around Christmas due to other orders and I wanted a photo >.<

Thanks guys :) I'm making an epic over bust in ivory and pink silk ATM with roses lots of lace and millions of beads sequins and crystals it's going to take forever.
You should Sarah there is sooo much information online about how to draft them insert busks etc and sewing chest sells all the supplies you need, she's in the uk and ships out really fast too.
I only started because I went into fabric land really hungover one day and bought some spiral bones then figured I had to use them so started googling.

Plus, it has bats, and I freaking love bats

so someone asked me to make them "two black and white and gray headbands, one with a flower and one without". and i thought that was pretty vague and i felt really creative today so this is what i came up with..

three headbands, the black and white two are tie up ones, the gray one with the white and black trim is one continuous band. and then i created two flowers, a small and large one that are detachable with buttons on the back. so you can fasten them to either of the three headbands anywhere you want, or wear the headbands plain. i hope that makes sense lol.

they are for her daughter so i hope they fit!
