My Kind of Project

Glue an upside-down bowl to a plate and you get:

A dessert stand!

I was looking on Etsy for cake stands and I loved these ones.

And then I realized her clever idea.

So I did a little search and apparently this is not a new idea.

But it was to me!

And it was to the guy at Pier 1 who thought I was pretty creative.
(he didn't have to know I'm a copy cat)

I donated this one to our RS service auction tonight so I'm still cake-stand-less and excited to make another one.

Or two.

Or three....some friends and I made these today (5/18). Love em!

That is really cute! And if you want to do it on the cheap, sometimes the $1 store has glazed ceramic pieces- not a lot that match, but you could maybe fnd a plate and bowl... I'm all about the copy cat crafts.

I an dubbing you the Blogger Queen... Sometimes I only have time to post something really quick, but not to read others blogs. You have the coolest places to go...I wish we were close by now that I'm not working :) You can tell by the pics you are a great mom and your kids are doing great. It was fun catching up with you for a few minutes!

I'm inspired (and impressed). I might just attempt one of those . . . maybe. I'm thinking a really tacky pink with lots of disney princesses all over it would be a big hit around here.
