First of all, Nathan's birthday shirt... (freezer paper t-shirt)
I used Don Juan for the font and My Community for the train. I was rushing, and therefore, there are a couple things about this that I am not happy with. The train isn't quite centered. I painted the base color on that first, then while it was drying, I worked on the words...I worked really hard to center the words...not realizing that I never really centered the train that well...oh well! Also, there is a smudge behind the front wheel. That said, he will probably only wear it twice (maybe he will wear it throughout the year, but the only times that will really matter are his actual bday and his bday party)
Next up, not a craft, but creative... Made cupcakes for his class for snack tomorrow. Rather than smooth on the icing with a knife, I decided to get creative and use my Wilton tips and icing gun (much easier than pastry bags!!!) I got that darn icing gun for my wedding shower, and this was the first time I used it
And finally the craft room reveal...

The shirt looks adorable!!
The cupcakes are amazing. I would have never guessed that was your first time. And what a fun wedding gift!!
And your room! WOW! Is that the same space you just shared a week ago!? It looks great!
the shirt is so cute! Good job.
those cupcakes look like they were bought at a store! I could never have gotten the icing so perfect.
Your room looks great. I think that is a great creative space. I love that you have your cricut up off the desk. That is a nice space saver that I am going to have to look into doing myself!
first, I want a cupcake NOW. evil woman posting a picture like that. I don't have an icing gun, I've always used the bags. the gun sounds cool ... and the cupcake looks great.
I think the shirt is really cute! I didn't notice the smudge until you mentioned it. but really, it looks great and I'm sure no one other than you will notice it.
your craft space looks AWESOME! you really put the pedal to the metal and got a lot done in a short time!
