Moms Group Tour Day

Today my SAHM group visited a fire station, learned about fire safety, & how the firefighters live while on call. Very fun for the little ones & informative too!

It's a new year!

I'm not really much for making resolutions, I do however, like to set new little goals. A few for me are, having more "family dinners" every week, & have more meaningful relationships. :)
Now time for Nutella crescents!
1 roll crescents
Chocolate chips (optional)
Powdered sugar (optional)
Unroll crescents, spread about 2 tbsp. of Nutella on each, a few chic chips, roll up & bake at 375 for about 10 min or until golden. Now you can drizzle with more Nutella & sugar if desired. Yummo!

Back from hiatus!

Hi my friends! I have had this lil blog o' mine sadly on the back burner for a few months, unfortunately as we all know, family "stuff" can sometimes overwhelm us. Now, having said that, I am ready to start crafting, thrifting & holiday decorating!! Football has started & to me that means Fall! Out with the pumpkin stuff, yummy scented candles & baked goods.

I was looking through my mess of a closet upstairs (craft closet) when I found this little door I had saved from an old entertainment center. I decided to give it a lil tlc :) Using black paint then white wash over the top & a hook from Hobby Lobby (3.99) that i glued on with e6000. Now I need to pull a ribbon thru the hole at the top for hanging. Whatcha think?

Really, it's May already?

Well hello my peeps, things in this little part of the world have been hoppin! My, my, how time flies when your hustling & trying to hold your sanity together, by a string! Oh, of course what I meant was, when your having fun. ;)  Jordan will be graduating next week( my baby girl) and we have been soaking up all that being a senior in high school has to offer, then there is the news that she will be leaving for an academic career in LA~insert boo hooing here! Anyway, glad to hop back on Cupcakes! Since we will be hosting a luncheon, to celebrate her graduation, I decided to put together a few more tier plates. I mean really, one can never have too many, right?? Had some old pieces, some e6000, & now I have more cute space for cheese's & crackers.

Easy Art

 We had a canvas sitting in the back of the craft closet that was just sitting, waiting, begging to be turned into art :). It really was in just a matter of minutes, that it was transformed, first a coat of black craft paint, while that was drying, we cut out shapes from scrapbook paper.
When the paint was dry, we added Mod Podge in small areas, then applied our paper in a flowerish design. Once everything was in place, another coat of Mod Podge over the entire surface. Now Jordan has a cool & unique piece of art for her room.
