Wonderful Weekend!

I had such a great weekend. I ended up getting my awesome new KitchenAid Mixer as an early birthday gift!! I absolutely love it! It's exactly the perfect color for me and I love the non-gloss finish!
I finally was able to use it on Monday to do my royal icing! Khaminh was able to come use it as well for her icing! It's just a matter of time that her and I convince her honey to buy her one. Anyways, if that wasn't enough, right before we left to go get my Mixer on Saturday, my brand new PINK ATG GUN came in! I thought that was a lost cause! The eBay seller would never respond to my emails and it was too late to do a report due to a 45 elapsed period from the day of purchase! So it was definitely a wonderful surprise that the seller finally came through and sent it to me. Even though it was 3 weeks late!! So I ended up making it a little more FAB than what it already is and updated it's look with some patterened paper. I love how it came out.

And last but not least, yesterday was another cake class and we learned to make different types of flowers. I love learning how to make these flowers. I can't wait to do my final cake! I'm really excited to finish off this course to continue on with the last and final course. All I need to do now is get my sewing machine and I'll be all set for the sewing class that I want to start as well.

This Sunday is my birthday. I'm going to be 26! I'm scared of turning older... but I'm happy how my outlook in life is. Just enjoy everyday, and as long as you are happy, who cares how old you are or how old you aren't. (I just got to grasp that last part and realize that age is just a number :oP. ) Thanks for stopping by all!

Happy Scrapping, Baking, and Crafting!

What a great birthday gift Nati!! Looks like you have been having fun making cakes and scrapping lately!! Hope you are able to start sewing classes soon. I have a singer sewing machine - if you want it, I'll give it to you. It needs a good cleaning, but it's a great starter machine! Just let me know. :)
