Every year we participate in Christmas Care. It is a great way to give back this time of year. You fill a shoe box with needed items and wrap it. Then drop it off to a designated location. From there the boxes are sorted out and given to local emergency rooms or shelters. We choose an adult man and women this year. If you are having trouble thinking of what to put in the box, don't worry Fox 11 has a great list. (http://www.fox11online.com/dpp/good_day_wi/collecting-gifts-for-christmas-care-)

What do you do for a baby shower? Make a diaper cake of course. Best way to combine cooking and crafts. Ok so there is no cooking but it sounds good. Ingredients: 1 box pampers size 1 (sensitive style), 1 package cloth diapers, 4 packages wash clothes (total 8), 1 4oz bottle, 1 8 oz bottle, 1 large bottle J & J body wash, ribbon, 100 hair ties (plastic type to wrap the diapers with), a few rubber bands, 4 pacifiers and bling. Directions are bite harder to explain. If you want to do one just put in diaper cake in a search engine and you will come up with many options. Have fun and I would love to see yours.
I thought I posted this already but can't find it. Sorry it is a duplicate! My friends asked me if I could make them a gift card box. After a quick min thought I said yes. I came up with an idea ran it by the bride and to our surprise this is how the cake will look as well. To funny. Was very tedious to make but well worth it. I took 4 different sided boxes from Hobby Lobby and wrapped them in decorative paper. Added bling with ribbon and 2 accent boxes. 1 box was for show and the other we put a photo of them in it(see bottom right box). The hardest thing was cutting the hole for the cards. I actually put 2 slots in just in case we filled the bottom one. I heard a few comments at the wedding about how cute it was and the colors went well.
