Baby Shower Crafting

As promised, I'm going to share some of the crafty goodness I've been creating for my sister-in-law's baby shower!

Diaper cake - this was quite a task as I really couldn't find the perfect topper. Sometimes I think I'm too much of a perfectionist, but nothing ever turns out perfect. So, I decided to leave it plain on top, though some people thought the turtle dishcloth was the perfect accent. I really enjoyed how the flower matched the ribbon so well.

Turtle dishcloth: I got this fabulous idea while sitting in a meeting at work... a little bored I guess. I tried it out and I thought it was cute. Of course, I see where it can be improved, but not so bad for an idea without a pattern.

Chocolate Pretzel drops: These are an easy favorite... thanks to my wonderful husband for slowly gathering brown, blue & green M&Ms from the bulk bins at Giant while I shopped. Quite a daunting task! These aren't anything amazingly stunning, but I was happy with how they matched the color theme so nicely.
