"Creative Activities" Weekend

I woke up Saturday morning and informed Will that it would be a weekend full of "Creative Activities" - we would ignore the laundry, cleaning, outside work, and home improvement for the weekend to just focus on our "Creative Activities" (named after my favorite building at the MN State Fair - I could spend hours in the Creative Activities barn). What do I have to show for it?

Saturday:
Advent Calendar Take 3

TWO 2010 Advent Calendars for friends (only 1 pictured)
Similar to last year's - but with different fabric.  They're both sandwiched and ready to be quilted this week!
(Michelle and Leighann - these are for you!)
(Does it kind of freak anyone else out how OCD I am? - look at those safety pins)

Sunday:
Baking, Baking, and More Baking
What a mess!
Colorful Cupcake Pop

I'm "practice" baking for a baby shower I'm hosting in a few weeks.  This was my first attempt at Cake Pops & Bites (full post coming after the shower, I learned A LOT of tips/tricks) - check out more at Bakerella.

Thanks for the link...I haven't made cake pops yet but I've been intrigued by bakerella and others. Here's my question... How do they taste??
