Transforming trash to treasure and a cake

Happy Thursday,,, Sooo glad the weekend is almost here. Linking up today with Gina at The Shabby Chic Cottage for Transformation Thursday. Just a few things I've done in the past few weeks or so and a birthday cake for my nephew Austin back in March (little behind with that one).. Take a look

First is a "Welcome" sign made from an old board that I got from my brother-n-law and sister when they were putting vinyl siding on their house. I should've gotten more than one. I havent found a permanent home for it yet,,I'm thinking on my backporch.

Next up is a quick and simple little note board to hang in my cubicle at work,, and I made it at work in about 10 minutes. I used two pieces of cardboard for extra stability and covered it in wrapping paper,, added a pice of jute twine to hang it with.

And finally my little nephew Austin turned 4 this year. I made a simple but cute cupcake cake and he loved it.

Thanks for stopping by, Become a follower and be eligible for my giveaway next week. Come back soon!

I won another giveaway,,, well actually i've won 2 giveaways in the past month or so,, and I feel so lucky. I won a gift certificate to Simple Expressions. And I cant wait to be able to use it. She does very pretty and unique invitations and announcements. So if you have a need for invitations please go visit her site.

And today I clicked on one of my favorite blogs and found out that I was one of the lucky 5 to win the Charlie Bug Party hat pattern. I'm so excited, I cant wait to make a few of these. I love the Blue Cricket Design blog. She has wonderful posts of things she's made and doesnt mind sharing the How To with us. Thanks Becca.
