Cupcake Wars

Has anyone seen Cupcake Wars on the Food Network?  Jones Bros Cupcakes from Omaha, Nebraska competed on the “Country Music Award” episode I believe in 2012 and won! http://www.foodnetwork.com/restaurants/ne/omaha/jones-bros-cupcakes-restaurant.html.  Since then I have always wanted to try one of their cupcakes and I finally got the chance this past weekend.  I chose a Red Velvet cupcake. I actually wanted one of each but decided that wouldn’t be a very healthy approach. Scroll on down and I’ll let you know how it was…

The anticipation… Couldn’t wait until I got home to open the box!

Look at that frosting… I had to sit and stare at them for awhile… a very short while!  Smile

One last look…

How many bites did it take to finish the cupcake?   Not very many!!  As a matter of fact, it all now seems like a distant memory to me, a very yummy distant memory!

The result……………..

It was scrumdelicious!!

Sweet memories,

Valentine

Found this cute little piece the other day.  It wouldn’t be that hard to make. In fact I bought it with the idea that I would make something similar but we all know where that idea went……..nowhere! lol

Drug out my stamps and punches and made a Pinterest inspired card. A person just needs a HUGE craft room with different sections, stamping, stitching, painting, wreath making, etc.  My problem is I can’t just zero in on one craft.  I like to do several so therefore I end up with a lot of supplies!

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

February’s Coming…

I guess it is safe to say, I have become a part time blogger!  It’s been awhile since I’ve posted anything!  Life just keeps happening and the days just keep getting away from me!  I decided I better get my hearts out and enjoy them before February comes and goes. I found this neat old ceiling tile and thought I would use it as a magnet board. I’ve had fun playing around with it and have been thinking about making some magnets from some old keys or game pieces or just anything unusual.  I’ve seen a lot of neat ideas on Pinterest.  What did we do without Pinterest?!

Lucky Me!

 

I was thrilled beyond words when I found out I had won Jenn’s giveaway over at Rabbit Hill Primitives!  Couldn’t wait to tear into the package when it arrived but the paper was so pretty, I just wanted to admire it for awhile!

Isn’t he an adorable table top Santa with a sweet little tree?!  I just love him!

I think I am going to have to leave him out and enjoy him for awhile before I put him away! Thank you Jenn!

Pinterest Idea

Here’s a fun and easy idea from Pinterest.  Winter snow scenes . This first one I made using a glass cloche.  I already had the little trees and the snow.  I used cotton for the base as it covers up the battery for the street light, and then sprinkled fake snow on top.  The little street light I bought at Walmart from their Christmas village d├ęcor.  It was so fun to do and the possibilities are endless as to the different scenes you could make.

AND…while at Walmart I found this container that looks like glass but it’s actually plastic for $7.97!  Yay!  AND… you can leave these “winter” scenes out after Christmas.

Now go forth and let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!  Smile

Christmas Decorating

Did a little decorating.  Again, not knowing how Jasper was going to deal with the tree, I just put some snowflakes on and no swinging ornaments.

Turns out, he just loves to lay under the tree…

and look up at the lights!

Of course I had to have some gingerbread men!

Although he seems to be doing ok with the tree, I did notice “someone” had messed with the stockings!
