Halloween is just a few days away! How about some free Halloween Party Printables 🙂 This set includes cupcake toppers, cupcake wrappers, 4 inch party circles, pre-customized food labels and a “Happy Halloween” banner. All the printables should be printed on 8.5 x 11 white card stock. Just use a 2 inch round or scalloped punch and small lollipop sticks for the cupcake toppers.
Today is my birthday and it is a big one… The big 50!! I rarely, well actually have never, designed a set of cookies for myself, but I think turning 50 deserves a set. I am a fall October girl, so to me that automatically equals pumpkins to me. But I wanted to have more than just pumpkins. The other day I was pulling out
It’s my favorite time of year… FALL!! Cooler temps (even here in Florida), hay mazes, scarecrows, and best of all… PUMPKINS!! There is only one thing that can make pumpkin better and that is chocolate. Can I get an “Amen!” I used cornstarch as the binder, so this is an egg-free recipe. I promise, you will never miss the eggs! Start off my mixing

Making Apple Butter is incredibly easy and so delicious. After going through several versions, my official taste testers (my family), settled on this one as their favorite. You can try this one,
I am beginning with a confession… well two confessions: I have never recover chairs before… I have never recovered anything before so I was a little nervous about this project.

It is one of those moments when it is hard to believe it has been a year in some ways and in other ways January 2015 seems
Happy New Year! It is a do over! It is a new beginning! It is time to hit the reset button! A new year always brings a time of reflection and looking forward.

If you have read any of my other posts, you know I love “Oh, The Places You’ll Go” by Dr Seuss. There is some wisdom in that children’s book. No wonder it is one of the most popular gifts for graduates 🙂 …headed, I fear, toward a most useless place. The Waiting Place… …for people just waiting. Waiting for a train to go or a
I was getting ready the other morning and thinking about this year. The year of 2015 will go down as the most unusual year of my life to date. I lived 40ish uh-um years in the same city, until 2015.
