Fun DIY Rack

I’m loving this Eames’ inspired rack from Danielle Thompson. Don’t the round colorful pegs remind you of Easter eggs? :) This would be so cute in a kids’ room! See her tutorial here.

Little Lamb Pillows

These lamb pillows from Dana at MADE are precious! They would be so sweet in Easter baskets or just as Easter decor. She used this tutorial on Purl Bee.

The Big 50

My sweet mom turned 50 today! I went home over the weekend to celebrate and we had lots of great girl time. Shopping, pedicures, lunches, and even a wedding!

Here she is at her birthday lunch at my grandmother’s. I made her wear a crown. :)

Happy Birthday Moms!! I hope it’s the best ever!

Cupcake partay

Yesterday, I went to a fun little cupcake party hosted by my friend and coworker, Kimberly of Attempting Creative.

She goes all out on her parties and this one was no exception. We were all asked to bring a different flavor of cupcake. There were some very creative and delicious varieties!

She had a bag of flags to decorate and label our flavors ready for us. (And in super cute paper bags she made with her Cricut).

Another Cricut project. So adorable!

I thought these flags complimented the strawberry cupcakes just perfectly.

Here are my little babies!

These were ‘Peas and Carrots’ cupcakes. She used Runts for the ‘peas’ and cut up Starburst for the ‘carrots’

Kimberly has quite the impressive cupcake library!

We gathered round for a cupcake decorating contest. There was so much to choose from!

Here are the contestants. There were some good ones!

It was a great party and I’m so glad Kimberly put this together!

Hostess cupcakes

I made these little Hostess cupcake cuties for a fun party this weekend. I used this recipe and I think they turned out pretty well.  Party pictures coming tomorrow!

Homemade Cini Minis!

Hey there! Apologies for my lack of posting. I can’t believe it’s March 12th and I haven’t had a single post this month! I have a little confession….I’ve been cheating on crafting with couponing. If any of you have ventured into the ‘coupon blog world’ you know what I’m talking about. The past few weeks have been consumed with blog stalking, coupon printing, newspaper cuts,  many, many stressful grocery/drug store trips and best of all lots of highs after scoring amazing deals. Last weekend I got four 5lb bags of flour for 9 cents a piece! It does.not.get better than that!

As fun as it’s been and as much money as I’ve saved, I’ve just begun to feel a little empty. I need my pretties back. I’ll still be trying my best to follow sales and get the best deals I can, but I will walk the fine line between couponing and crafting to be sure I’m still here to share all the beautiful things I’m finding out there. :)

As an ‘I’m sorry’ I’d like to share this little recipe for homemade cini minis.

A {tiny} sweet treat just for you!

The ingredients are very basic….

Crescent rolls

Ground Cinnamon

Sugar

Butter (optional)

[Icing]

Powdered Sugar

Milk

First, roll out the crescent rolls. Don’t tear at the perforations.

Then you fill them with the goodies. I spread butter on first, but it’s really not necessary, since most crescent rolls already have lots of buttery flavor. Sprinkle with lots of sugar and cinnamon on top.

Roll each piece of dough lengthwise to get two cute little  rolls.

Take a minute to soak in their cuteness.

I could’ve fawned over them all morning. Luckily, the husband got me back on track. “Stop taking pictures. I’m hungry!!”

Cutting these guys can be a bit difficult if you want them to look perfect. I’d recommend putting the rolls into the freezer for a few minutes to harden the dough and make them a little easier to cut through without smashing. I unfortunately didn’t have that much time (see hungry husband above). After you have them all laid out in your casserole dish, pop them in the oven per your crescent roll instructions.

While they’re baking, you can make your icing. Just mix up powdered sugar and milk until you have an icing-like consistency. Sorry I don’t have measurements. I always eyeball it!

Once your minis are finished baking drizzle lots of icing over top and enjoy!

Have a wonderful weekend!
