Lately, I've been feeling the urge. Is that better? I don't know. ANYWAY. The urge to what, you might say? Please, say it? So I can go on?
I'm somewhat artistic. I like to draw, paint, scrapbook, write stories, do "stuff" with my hands. And by having 3 kids in 6 years, I'm not able to express myself as artistically as I would like as of late. We've moved states, built a house, started new jobs, had more kids, etc and my crafting urges have continued to be pushed to the side. I'm to the point where I *need* to do something. I've continued to be able to read and love my books, but I need to DO something.
So what did I do? I signed up for some cake decorating classes at Michaels. And I L.O.V.E. them. I think that some of my love for this is because I get to buy "tools" to do the crafty stuff. And Michaels keeps giving me 50% off coupons - how am I to resist? I'm going to need an additional pantry to store all my cake decorating paraphernalia.
What am I going to do with a cake decorating class? Well, honestly, probably just make fan-frickin-tabulous cakes for my family and friends. I'm 32 now (oy) and I have a LOT of cake making years ahead of me. So far, just one cake down. By my calculations, I could have 872 *decorated* cakes under my belt before I kick the bucket. Not to be confused with all the *random cake that I like to make* (and eat, again, oy). Here's my first creation - hubby's birthday this week. He wanted yellow cake with chocolate frosting (yes, he's an original type of guy....).
