Hello to all my blogging friends, I hope this post finds you all well and happy! Wow, that was some blog hop this weekend! It warmed my heart to read all the stories of how Operation Write Home has touched so many lives.
Talk about creativity and talent! Boy oh boy there are some really talented paper crafters out there in blog land. You can still enjoy the blog hop by following this link. http://www.owhstarsandstamps.org I think it will be up for a few more days.
In the mean time, I would like to share with you my first attempt at making a Diaper Cake. My daughter's long time girlfriend Cassie and her husband James are having a baby. Regan should be here around the first of the new year. Everyone can't wait as it will be nice to have a new baby around the house. The baby shower was yesterday and we wanted to give her a really nice gift, so I put together this diaper cake. I took 172 diapers to make the cake along with all the goodies included (toys, 2-binkies, bath & body items, 4 receiving blankets, 5 onezies, 5 t-shirts, 1 rubber duck :),10 hangers, and a little stuffed lamb. It weighed about 15-20 lbs. It took me a little over 3 hours to complete it. But it took me about 3 days to sort it out in my head how I was going to construct it lololol. The 10 hangers and a couple dowels and garden wire were life savers. (Note to self, must have items)
