Linky Love: Curry, Bracelets and a Camera Strap Cover

Hubs surprised me with a new camera last night, so of course my first priority is clearly to make this.

This chickpea potato curry is so delicious, one of my favourite recipes ever. Hubs the self professed carnivore even gave it rave reviews.

Remember how I said I need fabric? Well I found some.

I saw this bracelet   on Love but I think my new camera may have eaten up my gift quota for a while.

Feeling the wrong kind of crafty: Top Ten Tuesday

I've been feeling super crafty lately, like fabric crafty but I need more fabric...I wish I was feeling scrapbook paper crafty because I have a ton of scrapbook paper (thanks mom!) and then there would be more pages in my 14 month old's scrapbook than just the one of her baby shower from the summer of 2009.

Here are the top ten crafts that I have bookmarked to do. At some point. When I have more fabric. 

1. Rolled Flowers from Snazzie drawers (the tutorial link is in her right sidebar)

2. Fitted cloth diapers, haven't decided on a pattern as of yet but have been looking at several.

3. Dragon slippers, how cute are these!

5. Ruffle pillows for the living room, our bedroom, Isabel's room...

6. Wool soakers to cover the fitted diaper I make.

7. Yo-yo's would look great with some rolled flowers.

8. So what if it's a Valentine craft? A cute wreath is still a cute wreath right?

9. Leggings for Isabel with some flare.

10. A diaper sewing job I really actually NEED to do more then want.

Winter ONEderland Birthday Party: Top Ten Tuesday

So this is coming 6 weeks late but here's a recap of the 1st birthday party for our little girl.

1. Cupcakes

I made vanilla cupcakes from Hello Cupcake and frosted them with simple white frosting with a hint of mint flavour. I found red and white patterned cupcake wrappers on sale at Michaels. 
*see #2 for cupcake toppers.

2. Paper Decor

Etsy seller totfulmemories made the beautiful printable party package. Many thanks to mom for helping me assemble cupcake toppers, banners, cup labels and hanging signs.

3. Cake Pops

My mom gave me an early Christmas gift of the Cake Pops book by Bakerella so I thought I would give them a shot for the party.

4. Hot cocoa station

I made a vat of hot cocoa and kept it warm in my slow cooker. It was quite yummy on a cold December afternoon especially when paired with a cupcake or two.

5. Martha's Balls err tissue paper balls that is

I have been looking for an excuse to make these ever since I first saw them when I was wedding planning almost 5 years ago. I found my excuse.

6. Double Duty Decor

The snowballs are now hanging in the nursery as is this banner, I just couldn't bear to pack them away.

7. First Cupcake

She looks less thrilled than she was for most of her party.

8. The outfit

Who doesn't want to wear a tutu on your birthday... 

9. Friends

What's a party without guests. We had many great friends come celebrate with us and showered the birthday girl with many wonderful gifts. I didn't manage to get a picture but we made foamie snowflake ornaments from a kit I found on sale at Michaels too...

10. Happy 1st birthday sweet girl!
