A crafty time of year

I'm not sure what it is about the end of summer/beginning of fall that gets me in the crafty mood but it happens every year.
Maybe it's the thought of going back to school and remembering how it felt to have that brand new pack of crayons to color with. Whatever it is, I had the perfect opportunity this week to be crafty.
First of all, my dear friend and neighbor had a beautiful baby boy on Monday night. So excited for them as they already have two girls. So I welcomed little Carson into the neighborhood with this cute little diaper cake. I've seen them all over the web and now I had the perfect reason to make one. She loved it.

And now that birthday activities are all over we are thinking a lot about our upcoming vacation. So we don't have to try and figure out how many more sleeps every day, I created this. Every day we will cover up one of the numbers with one of the little Mickey Mouse circles in the little pocket. Much more fun than the chore chart that usually hangs on this hook. We've moved that to a more inconspicuous spot in the kitchen and for three weeks this will remind us of what's to come.
