Maternity Leave

I basically have not been posting anything for over 6 months now. I love to create, to bake and to share it here.  Baby #4 was a much harder pregnancy than I had planned on. Even while I spent 7 weeks in the homestretch on bed rest I couldn't even bring myself to post. My one goal was her and getting her here safely.  She's wonderful and dreamy and 10 weeks old already.  I hope to post again this fall when my life falls back into a routine. Until I find the time!

Grandway Apron Review and Giveaway!


This is the busiest time of year for holiday baking. Just this week I think I have been through 2 pounds butter, 24 eggs, cups and cups of sugar, 3 batches of frosting, too many treats to count! I usually always wear an apron while making dinner or baking. I was so excited to test out a new apron from Grandway I had a hard time deciding which apron to choose they have a great selection of fun prints!
How cute is this green polka dot the Audrey?

I immediately fell for the black and white polka dots. This Sophia Apron was a winner.

I also loved the double ruffle on this cute Victoria Apron.

I was so excited when my apron came in the mail. I was really impressed with the quality. It’s always a great surprise to order an online product and find it better than expected and even cuter in person.

Elegant Buttercream Class at Orson Gygi

I was so excited to hear that Ashlee of I'm Topsy Turvy was going to start teaching Cake classes at Gygi. She is so incredibly talented, and such a fun person, so I was so excited to be able to attend a blogger night out to take a mini class for learning my buttercream basics!  
 It was really fun to learn all the fun trends in cake design and practice all my skills and mistakes right on the counter, then scrape it off and start over again!

Here is Ashlee doing her thing. She has such fluid and precise hand skills piping that frosting.

Here is my finished cake I made that night!

Click on over here to view Ashlee's class schedule at Gygi and she's also sharing a coupon code TOPSYTURVY for my readers that can be used online for products ( I really want to buy the whole store) with free local pick up, as well as on your cake classes!

Pumpkins wrapped in Tulle

This time of year you can easily find cheap fake pumpkins, but they are just that, cheap and fake right? I grabbed these at Walmart, I also snatched up some black tulle by the yard so this is a very inexpensive project. I simply cut a square of netting about 14” and wrapped up the pumpkin tying it off with some fun holiday ribbon!

Tomato Cage Topiary for Halloween

I had seen some ideas of Tomato Cage Topiary for Christmas using garland and decided to try a simple Halloween version. I already had orange lights and two tomato cages so this project was free!
I simply used some floral wire to tie up the 3 pointed ends to make the top of the tree then wrapped around and around with the orange lights. I loved how this added so much to my porch of pumpkins and mums, and it was free, quick, and easy!
