Cupcakes & Frosting

I have to share with you an amaz­ing frost­ing that is so sim­ple and so good. I’m all about sim­ple when it comes to the kitchen. I love to cook and bake as long as a recipe does not involve ingre­di­ents that are hard to find or is one that keeps me in the kitchen for­ever. If this is the case well, count me out on cook­ing that recipe. Ingre­di­ents Needed: Lemon Cake Mix or mix of your choice plus eggs, Water & Oil, Lemon Curd, Wilton White Sparkling Sugar, Cup­cake Liners, So here is a fab­u­lous cup­cake recipe that is sim­ple and...

Wedding Charms

Do you need a quick gift to give to a new bride? If so, this is one fast project she will cher­ish and can either wear, place in a shadow box or on the spine of a wed­ding album. To cre­ate the bead flower bou­quet all I did was place one bead onto a head­pin then curl the end of the head­pin to form a small loop. Once I had 12 com­pleted I bunched them together and wrapped a head­pin around the mid­dle of the bunch. Then I attached a jump ring to the wire wrapped area. Super simple. Sup­plies Used: 13 Head­pins, 12 Beads, 3 Jump Rings, 2...

Lemon Bath Bombs

Lemon Bath Bombs

With all the crazi­ness of bath bombs right now, I decided to give it a go and attempt to make my own. I looked all over Pin­ter­est at the ingre­di­ents in lots of dif­fer­ent bath bombs and by adding and tak­ing away cer­tain ingre­di­ents from recipes here is the recipe I cre­ated. These lit­tle bath bombs smell just like lemon bundt cakes. On my next batch I will add a bit more Lemon Essen­tial Oil (EO) to my next batch as it didn’t smell as strongly as I wanted in my bath but this is the only thing I will change when I make them again....

Need a crown, of course you do!!!

Need a crown, of course you do!!!

Sat­ur­day, I was at The Crafty Scrap­per attend­ing a birth­day crop for my super sweet & awe­some friend Trisha Perkins. At her party, she had Cheryl Dar­row of Ten Sec­onds Stu­dio come and instruct every­one on how to make leather crowns. This was WAY WAY WAY out of my com­fort zone as I’m a vin­tage paper kinda girl and there was zero vin­tage paper to be found here, but let me tell you I now have a new addic­tion. Work­ing with emboss-able leather is so fun and if you ever have the chance to take one of Cheryl’s crown classes do it,...

Happy St. Patrick’s Day

Noth­ing like a french bread clover cov­ered in cin­na­mon sugar to start your St. Patrick’s Day morn­ing. This is really easy to make and pretty darn yummy too. All you need to make french bread clovers is a tube of Pills­bury Crusty French Loaf, melted but­ter, ground cin­na­mon and sugar. Instead of greas­ing my cookie sheet I placed mine on a cookie sheet cov­ered with parch­ment paper. Pre­heat the oven per instruc­tions on the tube. Cut 5 long strips of the Pills­bury Crusty French Loaf. Leave about 2 inches at one end for the clover...
