Finally, some inspiration. Things have been busy in the Fort. Over the last little while I have been working hard on several creations (some unposted as of yet, sorry!).
So, it is with great pleasure that I post this update! The Kellar Cake - a 50th wedding anniversary!
Red-Velvet and Carrot Cake with Cream-Cheese buttercream, covered in MMF.
And of course, my personal update. I don't like adding too much in the way of personal information. True, I have been known to post personal images and updates sporadically, but this one is totally worth doing. This year, my husband and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary (not our 50th, I guess we are 1/10th there!). I say this year, but in truth, we were married on a leap-year (Feb 29th 2008) and only have celebrated one anniversary.... so if you count non-leap years it is five, if not, I guess we are 1.25/5 years. I suppose my husband's face says it all as I try on my dress for the last time.
What do people do with their dresses? Wreck them, store them for their
children who will never want to wear them.... Me. I decided to donate
mine. There is a great group in Thunder Bay that sends dresses to people
who cannot afford to buy them. I am very happy knowing my dress will
have a new life with someone! So... I tried it on. One thing I always
thought with my dress.... I AM BATMAN!
Other silly things being done... a Quincy-hut outside of my house.... we've had a lot of snow! Two people can sit up or crouch in this beast! My husband says I can live in that, and he gets the house.
And of course, after-school snowshoeing on the lake. What a wonderful way to enjoy where you live.
