Another cool tip!

This may be something that everyone does already, but I NEVER use the iron on my ribbon.  You know why??  I use a flat iron hair tool that I keep at my desk next to my heat gun!!  So when I need to "iron" the creases out of a ribbon, I turn it on, let it heat for just about a minute, and "iron" my ribbon flat!!  Viola...NO iron needed!!  I just got a cheapo one from Walmart for $9...I could care less if it "straightens well" or not....I just need a little heat and a flat surface!!

Another tiered paper cake!!

Good grief!!  Has it really been 2 months since I last blogged??  That sounds like the beginning of something said in a confessional...."Forgive me for I have sinned.  It's been 2 months since I last blogged..."  Hee, hee!!  I've just been busy with my kids, and various projects.  Here's my latest one....a 60 piece tiered paper favor cake!  It's for a friend's/customer's Mom's 90th birthday party at a church this coming Sunday....I think they'll all like it!  Even though these take a while to complete, the end result is SOOO pretty to look at!!  Is it OK to like your own projects??  Here are just a few pictures!
