Birthday girl







I know things have been a bit quite around here lately and I'm a bit cross with myself for why. I have been a stressed out with everything on my plate over the last week or so and what makes me so cross is that I put everything on it. I haven't posted because I want to do a giveaway. I am going to be giving away the knitted cakes book and I thought it would be good to finish the one I started and include that in the giveaway. But I haven't finished the cake so I haven't posted about it. Which is just dumb- no one is messaging me with 'hey, where's the giveaway you promised us?' No one is knocking down my door for a slice of knitted chocolate cake. I am posting today because I wanted to share some pictures of Anna 3rd birthday. Birthdays come around whether you are ready or not and it was a joy. Anna and I spent a lovely day together and we had an ace family tea with a Hello Kitty cake which was not my greatest ganaching moment. (please note though I am showing you pictures!) We now have some ace new toys and had a great party with some very sweet friends today. I am ashamed at myself for being held back by what I haven't done, or haven't done to perfection. This is not what it is all about, I need to keep an eye on the goal, which is really to avoid having more than a couple of the darn things!!

Such a little sweetie ..she doesn't care that you don't think the cake is perfect. And she's your most important critic.
njoy having the important things close.
