4th of July Cupcakes!

Today I made some yummy cupcakes for the 4th of July. They turned out really nice! (Of course the photos don't show them justice.)
I added pretty red, white and blue sprinkles.
They taste a lot better then they look. (hehehe)
Happy Independance Day everyone!
"With Liberty and Justice for all."

Hope Chest

Mommy says its good for kids to have hope chest before we move out so we will have items for our house. I thought that was a good idea so, a month-or-so ago I went to Ross (with mommy) and I found some stuff I liked:
This is a pretty container for my future kitchen. I love the color of it, and best of all, its Paris themed! YAY

This is a gravy thing for breakfast. (I'm not sure what they are really called... oopsie)
Here's a close up of the pretty trim around it. I think I need to get a camera that can zoom without it getting blurry. Hehe. :)

I don't care for the back round on this photo its a bit to dark, don't you think?

Sewing Class

Last night I took my first sewing class. I was able to choose from a book bag or a backpack. I chose the book bag. I got to choose the patterns I wanted and all that kind of stuff. It was a lot of fun!

This is a photo of the bag I made:

Here's a close up on the pattern.

It is lined on the inside with matching orange fabric. I think it turned out really nice for my first bag. :)

Next time I'm going to make PJ bottoms, they sound a lot harder. I can't wait though!

New Additions to my Shop

Here is one of the crafts I did today. Its a card a gift tag and a bookmark! They turned out really nice, better then I thought they were going to.
This is a set of gift tags I did yesterday. They are gift tags stained with tea to make them look vintage and then I stamped them with the Efle Tower. The tea really made them look nice.
These items are sold in my shop, which you should be able to see on the right side of the page somewhere.

Well as I told you, yesterday I went to the dentist. He told me I was coming a long great! I was very happy to hear that. Well that's all I have to say for now...

On Friday, my family and I went to my Grandma's house for her Birthday. My dad was the only one who didn't come. He went to my other Grandma's house for his vacation, to go fishing. It was a really nice vacation. I got to see my Aunt, Uncle and my 2 cousins.
I finished my Course 1 cake decorating class and now I'm in Course 2. I have a lot of fun decorating. For the last class in this course I'm going to do a basket cake. I'm excited to see what its going to look like. Theres a picture of it on my book and it is really pretty! This course we're working with royal icing instead of buttercream. It works a lot better then the buttercream, its more hard so the flowers look better. When I finish my cake I will put a picture of it up on my blog.

There is my cute hamster. Her name is Hammy. We found her on our back porch about three or four months ago.
I also ironed today for the third time in my life. :) I thought it was pretty fun. I forgot to add the photo so I will in my next blog.

There is my room decorated really pretty. Yesterday my mom put my shelves up. The theme of my room is Paris.
These are the shelves.

This is a close up on one of the pretty boxes. It looks so pretty! I'm very happy! I've been waiting a long time for the selves to go up.
That is the Bible I got for graduating from my Confirmation Class I took last year at our old church.

Last night I was cooking my self a nice pizza pocket for dinner. It was good, but I think next time I wont put as much sauce. :)

Tomorrow me and my family are going to church and then to the movies. I had the choice of going out to eat to night because I had good grades on my report card. I chose to go next weekend instead. I get to pick the place! :) I haven't decided were I want to go yet.
My report card had all A's and one C. The C was because of my grade on the test I took a few days ago. If I hadn't got the grade I would of had a B, I think.

New Apron

Today I got a new apron for the cake decorating class my mom and I stared. I also got it for cleaning the kitchen.

Shop/ School

I finally got all of my cards up on my shop. I'm really happy!

Today I had a three big test in school. I did good on two of them but one wasn't very nice at all...

:( I passed them all though.

It was a geography test and the problems I missed were all the same kind. I had to figure out the different time zones and I counted wrong.

That's a picture of me doing school yesterday. Yesterday I took a science test and I got a 96%. I only missed one.

I still have one more thing to put up in my shop, but I have to wait until tomorrow. I still need some things to finish the tags.

Tonight my sister is coming to visit us for the weekend. I will be very happy to see her. Nothing much happened today, I made some more cards and me and my dad got a good work out. My dad was helping me lift weights on his new home gym. It was cool, I didn't know I could lift as much as I did. Although it still wasn't a lot. :) Well thats all for tonight.

Shopping day!

I have a wonderful day... I went to the dentist and got a new color for my braces. The color I chose was lavender, a prefect color for spring time. :)
My mom and I went to the store and bought a lot of fruits and vegetables. After that I ate lunch and took a test in geography. My geography test was for Africa. I had to label and spell correctly all 49 countries. I got a 100%, and I am very happy!
Well I guess that's all for now...
