Opening up another session of the FNCC! Everyone is welcome to come share their week, photos of their work, ask for help or provide help if they can! Hope to see lots of fun photos!
No cakes for me this week. My entire week has been sucked up by making crafts for my family/friends. Earlier in the year our neighbor had their fence redone and they had leveled the wood leaving sections of wood about a foot long by 7 inches wide left over wood pieces. I sucked up about a dozen of those and made signs as gifts. You can see one here: https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=10152850247595021&set=pb.154097635020.-2207520000.1386992564.&type=3&theater
Hope that works. Anyways, that's the one I made for us. All of them are holiday themed from a Santa with sunglasses to snowmen to snow families to Christmas trees. My diningroom table has been covered all week!
Tonight I'm working on making a Paintbrush Santa for my husband who collect Santa's. He's out of town on business this weekend so I have time to make it for him without him seeing it.
What have you guys been up to this week?
Wow, Cat! So talented! Not only in cake, but other crafts as well. Love your sign. I like to do thinks like that, too. My Hubby keeps telling me if I take up one more hobby, he's going to have to move me to a warehouse to house all the craft supplies! I used to do ceramics, still make wreaths and other Christmas decorations, and then took up cake decorating. All of those hobbies require lots of supplies!!
SPCOhio, those are cute cookies. You did a great job! And Miss-bakes-alot, that turkey cake is fabulous!
Hi Cat and everyone,
Love the Turkey cake Miss bakes a lot , we don't have thanksgiving here, so we don't really have turkey til Christmas Day.
SPC, I did a demo on using the gingerbread man for reindeers for our club last month I just used fondant though so it could be put straight on top of a cake . . We do a lot of charity Christmas cakes and I think a lot of them are going to have the reindeers on them this time.
Cat, I am dreaming of a week without cakes when I could craft , the sign looks great.
Norasmum , that would have been so much fun I love decorating with littlies.
Well I have had a busy busy week ,I started the week with Cheesecakes for a party, went on to a wedding cake mid-week, then Cheesecakes and Tiramisu to finish. then today I took my Mum to see Chitty Chitty Bang Bang .
I am exhausted to say the least , and I just got a phonecall from a friend that is now arriving tomorrow and staying for a few days. There go my down days before next week's cake.
This was the midweek wedding , it was White choc and dark choc mud on the bottom , filled with choc ganache. The top two were carrot and walnut, with a spiced chai syrup and white choc orange blossom ganache.
Gerle, I'm a professional photographer too. You can see that work at shutterbugtraveler.blogspot.com I worked for about a year at a craft store with my sister and the two of us learned every craft there was in the store! LOL! I just lump them all together and say I'm an artist. As for a warehouse!!! That would be a DREAM! My husband just tolerates my messy craft corner. About every 6 months I tear into it and straighten it up...which only lasts till I craft something again! LOL! Poor guy!
Chelle..as I said on FB...LOVE that cake. It's SO beautiful! Hope you get to rest a bit while your friend is her for her visit!
Hope everyone has a great week! I get to start on all of the baking/cooking for edible gifts this week..starting with m&m cookies for my brother in law. I painted him up a Santa Tin and am filling it with cookies! I am also making chocolate dipped pretzel sticks, chocolate dipped spoons, caramel and chocolate covered apples and some sort of loaf bread..haven't quite decided that one yet. So this will be a busy week. I start giving gifts this week so all of this food won't be hanging around long! LOL!
