Vintagemom’s Newest Adventure

I had a dream, yes, that’s how this started.

I dreamed of a necklace and in order to create this necklace I have to learn a new technique… metalsmithing.

Tommorow I’ll begin my self teaching.. with some help of a great friend ( goddessjoy.. see her work at http://www.goddessjoy.etsy.com) I should have some great creations on the way. I’m really looking forward to a new outlet..

My newest Favorite!

Where have I been?

I’ll tell you , sometimes when you are a mommy and an artist minded soul ( like me) You just DO NOT want to hang out on the computer. I’d really truly rather be doing something more fun. My latest round of fun has been this.. I made a diaper cake.

What the heck is a diaper cake?.. you might ask…

Well, I started out with a pack of size one diapers and went from there. I rolled them individually with little girl hair ties ( to be used later ) and then slowly went about building a tiered “cake”  The ingredients for my cake?

This ones for “Racheal” She’ll be here soon.

Many Blessings to all,

I’ll try to continue to update you!
