Cakes for my boy!

Hard to believe Carter is 4! I made these cakes for his birthday. One for a celebration at my mom and dads and one at the in laws. They were a hit! Especially since they were chocolate on the inside!

Sugar Scrubs

I made some scrubs as Christmas gifts for the ladies in my life.  I think the lemon hand scrub will be great after cutting up smelly things like garlic and onions.  The yummy cinnamon vanilla body scrub smelled so good!

Ruffly Scarf

I think this is probably too ruffly for me, but I think its really cute!  It was a little harder to make than I expected. What do you think?  Is it your style?


I love, love the poly mesh ribbon style wreaths that are so popular right now!  Here are two I have made this season!

My Creative Passions

I love sharing food of all kinds. My primary expressions of culinary creativity over the last several months have been cupcakes.  I love to cook and I love the joy that a cupcake brings to someone! A few of my recent cupcake creations:

Deep Dark Chocolate with Milk Chocolate Frosting

Harvest Pumpkin Cupcakes with Cream Cheese and Orange Frosting (for UT game)

And the perennial favorite, the vanilla cupcake with various colors of frosting for birthdays at the office.  What's your favorite cupcake?

Creative Inspiration

Anyone who knew my grandmother, knew that she was one of the most creative, beautiful people who ever graced our lives.  She taught me to can, make jelly and jam, sew and so much more.  Much of it I have, sadly forgotten, but what I haven't forgotten is the joy that comes from creating beautiful or delicious things and the joy of sharing them with others!

So, to my Granny - This journey is to honor you, I hope you are proud and smile down on me from time to time!
