” All Dolled Up” … that is the name of the Ottawa Doll Group – full of very talented doll makers – they always send out an electronic monthly news letter.
I was asked if I’d like to be the profile for April – and if I could kindly write it by March 15th? … I jumped on the chance and said “yes – thank you and please”.
Well, have you ever done that?
Written a profile about yourself?
I find it hard – I find it hard when I have to write three sentences about myself on Facebook – let alone a whole piece to be read by all these amazing artists.
So I procrastinated – again!
But Sunday morning, I woke up and thought – today is the day (let me just point out – well within the time-limit!)
So I sat down – pen in hand (read: computer in lap) and within a fairly short amount of time I had written a pretty long piece.
And I got an email back saying it was a really nice piece – fun, cheerful and happy.
Which in turn made me happy!
Which then made me think ”maybe I should share some of it with my readers” – like this funny little tidbit!
“For some strange reason – I still haven’t found a way to relay this story without a bit of embarrassment sneaking in – one weekend way before we were parents I said to my husband “let’s make some salt dough – just in case we have children one day. We must know how to do salt dough” … now, granted I have a very kind and supportive husband but it only took about an hour before he threw in the towel. “
Seriously I made Mr. Hubby do that – we had a West Highland White terrier at the time and he tried to make her on a magnet for our fridge … bless … let’s just say – it never made it to the fridge.
“ … when I had my twins – and they turned three years old, we were living in the UK. Cake decoration using Fondant is big over there. I was intrigued and loved the idea of colorful fun cakes.
So I made their third birthday cake and I’m not going to lie - it was a disaster.”
I’m telling you … it was a boat – the one there in the right hand upper corner.
I mean – first of – look at the title “50 EASY Party Cakes” – so how hard could it be?
It was a disaster – it really really was!
and I’m happy to say that there is only on photo in existence – and it is only showing half the cake, sort of hidden behind the presents on the birthday table …
But I persevered and made some fantastic cakes – like this one – I mean this one is not bad … right?
What else did I put in my profile?
Oh yes – there was this bit about how I have been doing the lessons on Jolie and this particular sentence …
“I finished her yesterday – but the blog readers don’t know that and won’t for a few weeks – but I thought you should have a look-see”
This means that there are people out there who has seen her before you …
- sorry about that
