Oh wow!! It has been a really long time since I have posted. I posted this video because the boys in the video (Mike and Joey) have the same disease that my 8 year old niece has. Last March we went to Seattle for tests and Sheyenne got fitted for her AFO (leg brace). This spring was when she was finally diagnosed with GAN. GAN stands for Giant Axonal Neuropathy, if you would like to learn more about it, please check out www.hannahshopefund.org . There are approximately 43 people around the globe that are known to have GAN. Little to no testing has been done for it. There are clinical trials in the works for 2011. But first, Hannah's Hope Fund needs to raise money so the testing can place. So if you have any suggestions for fundraisers please let me know. I don't see myself winning the lottery anytime soon, or that would take care of it.

This has been one of my latest creations. I have been making diaper cakes. They are so much fun and less stressful than decorating a real cake. It all started in March. The 7th grade teacher who happens to be my son's classroom teacher and my daughter's science teacher was due while I was going to be in Seattle. I knew I wasn't going to have time to whip out a scrapbook for her new baby so I made a 3 layer pink diaper cake. From there, things just kind of snowballed.
She doesn't get to keep my antique cake plate though. When I deliver the diaper cakes, I have them wrapped in cellophane. They look like this:
This next one is the 3 layer baby boy diaper cake that I made for the kindergarten teacher. She is expecting a new grandson any time now.
