Adventures in sugar, flour and life

#CraftingforCosmo

on February 17, 2016

One year ago I had the honor of throwing my sister a baby shower for her second child. Since it was going to be a boy (the 1st a girl) I was allowed to go big! I spent months planning every detail and crafting until the wee hours of the night. Since they didn’t have a name chosen, we nicknamed baby boy Cosmo (big sister was Bertha- we have a knack for nicknames).IMG_1024

After much deliberation I decided to go with a denim and burlap theme. Lucky for me, I had a friend who had just cleaned out his closet and was getting rid of close to 10 pairs of jeans!!! I hit the jackpot! I immediately started cutting and crafting.

I used every scrap I could and couldn’t have been more pleased with how it all came together.

With all the details coming together, my biggest decisions were what to have for dessert, naturally. After countless hours of mulling it over, I decided on salted espresso chip cookies, dark chocolate peanut butter crunch bites, apple cobbler a la mode and sugar cookies.

One month later I was given the best thank you ever, my very own nephew!
