1  Archive of Past Craftster Challenge Entries / CHALLENGE 36 ENTRIES / Glunk Glunk Went the Little Green Frog on: March 05, 2009 09:51:14 AM
This is not my *favorite* song, but it is my son's favorite, therefore, it is my favorite by association.  I learned the song when I was in kindergarten. I sing it to my son 20+ times a day to appease him.  March 5th is my sons FIRST BIRTHDAY!! (yay!) So I had to make a cake!

The cake is a simple chocolate cake with chocolate frosting. I found a recipe for butter cream fondant here.   http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Rolled-Buttercream-Fondant/Detail.aspx It uses a lot of powdered sugar. so much, I ran out and had to work the fondant like play dough instead of rolling it out.

The song is pretty simplistic, but he's one. He probably just likes the funny faces I make when I sing it. Also the words glunk glunk can be changed to whatever sound you want. If you are unfamiliar with this song, a simple youtube search of "went the little green frog"  will pull up hundreds of videos of people (young and old!) singing it.

and his eyes went glunk glunk glunk!

Also, an action shot of the cake being eaten (you know, to sway the judges... mwah ha ha!)

2  HOME SWEET HOME / Interior Decorating: Completed Projects / We need a baby room on the double!! on: November 15, 2008 12:11:45 AM
My husband and I were expecting our first child in late April, so you can imagine our surprise when my water broke two months early.   36 hours of labor, our bundle of baby boy was born.  He was bigger than they had expected, and doing so well (yay!) that they decided to send him home after only 5 days in the NICU. 

Now our dilemma.  We had only gotten as far as picking out the colors for the room.  My husband kept insisting that we had plenty of time to work on it.  We also had very little baby items, as we were waiting to see what was given at the baby shower.

This is what we started with.

and this is what it looked liked when my son was born.


Our NICU had rules saying that you could not be away from the hospital for longer than three hours. So it was either myself or daddy sitting by baby's side, while the other worked on the room. Thanks to a lot of friends and family, we were able to get hand-me-downs of furniture so babe had some place to sleep!! Here is how it turned out.

My little guy is now doing very well, and will sleep anywhere and everywhere, except his room.  *sigh*
