Happy Raspberry Day! and a project!

When I got up this morning, I saw on a FB post that it is "National Raspberry Cake Day"! Hmmm, have never heard of that but my brother LOVES raspberries, so I immediately thought of him! Then I saw there was recipe for raspberry-buttermilk-cake & I knew I HAD to make it for him! I asked him to come by after work & gave him his cake! He loved it!! 

 And here is the finished cake!
But did I take a pic of the cake AFTER I flipped it over??? Of course not! Oh well, he loved it & that is all that matters! :)

I also did alot of crafting today, but I will not be sharing all my pics tonight! I have my monthly Stampers Club mtg on Thurs, so I don't want to ruin their surprise projects! But I will share one project that I finished today...During our club mtgs, there are always piles of trash & scraps all over the table from all the stamping & crafting going on! So I have been meaning to alter a can of some sorts for small "trash cans" to put on the table. A friend of mine brought me a whole bunch of containers to take up space in my cabinets alter someday! And in there was 4 coffee cans! PERFECT!! So here is the finished products....
Fancy "trash cans" huh?? LOL!! I made 1 set for each end of the table! I had the sequin ribbon in my stash that a friend had given me when she cleaned out her moms sewing boxes after she passed away...I knew I wanted to use it for something special and something I would keep for myself. I love how it added some "bling"!! Even trash cans can be pretty right?? :)

Can't wait for "my ladies" to see them!! Finally, a place for all their trash/scraps!

Tomorrow I will be posting a really cool Cricut cart storage idea that my Mom came up with! I am finishing up my boxes & will post pics tomorrow! So be sure to come back & see what her absolutely clever idea is!!

Until next time...
