Baby Craft Bonanza

I have enough half-finished craft projects to last me approximately 10 years. However, the upcoming birth of my little nephew has inspired my craft gene to new levels. Today was his second baby shower and nothing but extreme craftiness would do. Here are some creations. And yes, in my next life, I would like to be a party planner!

Every mom knows that diapers are really the best presents. So the new goal is to see how many things we can make out of diapers. Below is the diaper wreath and the diaper cake. I have passed on opportunities to design a diaper table cloth or anything super crazy like that. We stick with regular grade crazy around here.

We LOVE baby toys, and when I found the pattern for this one it was just too cute to pass up. This is a clutch ball. Of course, after it was opened Jackson seized upon the opportunity to chunk it at the great grandmother.

Designer (as in designed by me) burp clothes . . . because this baby's spit up deserves nothing but the best.

These are a few shots of the delicious buffet, and that is something I can take no credit for. Kitchen magic is the exclusive domain of the mother of the mother to be. I choose to remain mystified . . . and very, very well-fed!

We had a great time at the baby shower. Unfortunately, it just served as a minor commercial break in my master crafter plan. As we speak, there are 3 additional baby craft projects that I have yet to complete. I will be chaining myself to the sewing machine very soon. Send food. . . spinach artichoke dip, anyone?
