Craft Room Tool Caddy

Here’s the simple way I organize some of my crafting tools.

I used tomato paste and sauce cans spiffed up with ribbon scraps and little galvanized buckets from Logan’s desserts.

All on tray that I can slide out from under this little shelf.craft-room-tool-caddy (1)craft-room-tool-caddy (2)craft-room-tool-caddy (3)

It’s great to have lots of little containers for all those notions and tools you acquire for sewing!

The Cake

DSC_1709

We recently got a Publix close to our house which is WONDERFUL, and there is no cake better than a Publix cake. We worked with our Publix Apron’s consultant Rita, which make the process so painless. We even still got a cake tasting!

Publix was fabulous we did a small 8” Raspberry Elegance as our cutting cake on our “12 Drummers Drumming” cake stand I got on sale from Pottery Barn.

Then we got a half sheet cake which we did half in white and half chocolate with strawberries and custard in the middle.DSC_0006
We used our rehearsal time to set up the day before the wedding.  We picked our cakes up the before we headed to set up and stowed them safely in the fridge along with the drinks. So glad we did this, it was nice not to have to worry about the cakes!

Easy Pattern Weights

I FINALLY made myself some pattern weights, I do not know why I’ve been suffering so long.easy-pattern-weights
I used jean scraps from shortening my jeans and metal BBs. The jean scrap is perfect for holding up to the heavy BBs. A perfect fast whip up to make your next project so much easier.
