It all started with making my card for this week's SALT challenge...The theme was taken form Psalm 46:1 "Be still and know that I am God". Lythan writes in her blurb 'I need to know that I am not on my own in all of this - that I can rest in God and he will give me strength. I wish I could follow Desmond Tutu's advice “I am far too busy to pray for less than two hours a day” I certainly need this time to reflect and create and be still with God'. I found this verse that I had stamped form my sister in lawscollection and used it to make this card.

My sister in law is having a craft day to raise some money for a charity called Caring For Life, I made up some felt flower corsage kits to make your own, for her to sell. I thought they would make ideal stocking fillers, or Christmas presents.A friend of mine is organising a baby shower for her sister in law. I made this fimo cake topper for her so that she could have it as a keepsake. It was my first attempt at making something like this and was a bit time consuming, but very enjoyable. Don't look to closely or else you will see some faults! Very difficult not getting fingernail marks and scratches into the fimo (modelling clay) when it is soft!
One morning we woke up to my son's attempt at cake making.... The results may look lovely, but this is a result of letting a 4 1/2 year old loose at candles and sprinkles, this is only part of the mess! The other cake attenpt that he tried was to try and make cake using dried milk powder and milk, with icing...!!!!
