Top Blog Posts Update

First edition of our weekly top blog posts update and we have had a bit of a shake up. Dollar Store Crafts – Sushi Themed Baby Shower Gift came out of no where to take second spot (but couldn’t quite reach #1), Pink Cake Box – Rose Wedding Cupcake Cake Tower just keeps climbing while Dabbled – Making Angry Birds Cupcakes, Sweetapolita – Fondant Asparagus, and Epicurious – 10 Edible Flowers to Grow in Your Garden have dropped off the list.

Has one of your favorites been kicked of the top 10 list? Are you one of the people helping the sushi themed baby shower gift take over?

Let us know what you think…


Dollar Store Crafts – Sushi Themed Baby Shower Gift

Happy Hump Day Everyone!

Sorry for the late post today folks, business has been crazy!

Anyway, I don’t know most of our readers (and as such you don’t know me). If I had to describe myself the word “sushi” would definitely come up, maybe multiple times, however the word “baby” would not. I have been married for almost two years but there is no baby here nor is there going to be anytime soon. Don’t get me wrong, I love babies, I love babysitting, holding them and playing with them, I just don’t want one. Maybe one day, I said maybe, but I just don’t know if motherhood is for me. But when Dottie Dee showed me this baby shower gift, wow, if I do have a baby, this gift would definitely be for me:

Faux food gifts are a fun idea that’s been floating around out there for a while. You’ve probably seen diaper cakes or sock cupcakes, but here’s a new twist! Jolene from Creative Dollar used an assortment of baby essentials to create “sushi”, which she presented all wrapped up on a plate. Hers was a baby girl gift and included hair bows; for boys, you could use more socks or other small soft goods instead. Sushi-loving moms-to-be will love this creative presentation!
