Welcome to my little corner of the world. I am so honored by your visit today. My name is Kristi and I am married to my college sweetheart(I refer to him here as "Mr. Incredible"), momma to my 2 beautiful girls who are growing much too quickly, a high school computer teacher, photographer, and a gardener (at times~right now I'm growing weeds). I love to laugh, drink strong Starbucks coffee, take pictures, and be anywhere my family is. Jesus is my Savior and I try so hard to be the wife and momma that He has called me to be. I often fail but He lovingly picks me up, dusts me off, and encourages me that with Him all things are possible. Feel free to join me on this journey of faith, stop in and say hello, look around, and leave a comment~I love comments. Why "Kiki's Corner?" My nephews call me Aunt Kiki and I love that too.

It's a Diaper Cake, Baby!

I am one of twelve or fourteen hostesses this weekend for a baby shower for our precious new Youth Minister-Intern's wife. She is wonderful, and he is too!

I had the joy of making the invitations.
She told me the nursery would be in blues and browns.
Here is what I came up with.
(I... meaning, me and the Lord)

I was thrilled with how they turned out. We had a shower meeting and couldn't really decide about a table decoration and then I saw Elizabeth's creation! I knew when I saw it that I just had to try to make one. I had never seen one of these before. A diaper cake! Who knew?

She was so gracious and generous to share her instructions and her expertise.
Thanks a million, Elizabeth!
(She is amazing! I've tried several of her recipes and they are wonderful.)

So, with the help of my girls we set out to purchase the supplies.
Have you heard the one about
the three blondes that tried to make a diaper cake???

Oh, I couldn't have done it without their help! Thank you, sweet girls!!!

An hour and a half later this is what we made:

We just fell in love with the little elephant. If you pull his tail, he plays a lullaby. Tiny socks, tiny bows, tiny diapers...I think I need to "go take an Advil" as my sweet hubby would say. Two Advil and the baby fever will pass.

Anyway, it was so much fun! Fun memories with my girls!
Ya'll have a blessed weekend!

Aw - that is so sweet and thoughtful and beautiful and useful! Makes me want one too - I can relate to that baby fever! I love how your invitation equates baby stuff with love, joy, etc. - it really is all part of a beautiful package.

I loved the diaper cake. I made one for my daughter then she and I made two more for showers. They get cuter and cuter. Yours with the elephant is so cute.
