Each month I will be featuring craft sites and projects that I think are interesting, fun and unique. The internet has made it possible for almost everyone to publish their arts and crafts and share them with the world.Some of this amazing talent gets lost in the search engine world and it is my goal to feature sites that you may have missed during your internet searches. If you have a site that has interesting, unusual crafts and would like your site to be featured send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org .Let's connect! Rita

This is the most amazing birthday craft project ever! Send your friends a birthday greeting postcard that actually looks like a slice of cake.
The "postcard" is made from a sponge and caulk but in fact looks like the real thing! This is a birthday postcard that your friends will never forget.
Jaime from sheknows.com says it costs about $3.00 in stamps to mail the cake slice and had one sent to herself (there are pictures) to prove the "slice of cake" can be mailed. What an unusual and fun craft project!
