Flower Cupcakes

I am so desperate for spring and flowers, I think any type of flower would make me happy right now! Especially flower CUPCAKES! Last year for Sweet Pea's birthday I made these, and they were a HUGE hit! Believe it or not, they were really easy to make, too!

Check out this video to see where I learned this culinary wizardry!

Birthday Tutu! Happy 5th Birthday Allison!

I made this lavender tutu (with the help of my mom!) for my very good friend's little girl, Allison. It was for her 5th birthday and I think she looks simply adorable in it! Doesn't she have the most beautiful red hair?

Badge Albums

Last year for Mother's Day I created these badge albums for Sweet Pea's grandma's (and one for me, of course!) I loved how these fit right on your purse, and you can customize them with the embellishments and design. Time to start thinking about what I'll make for Mother's Day gifts this year! Only a few more months!

Pastels Butterfly Mobile

This is another butterfly mobile I made for a friend who is expecting a baby girl. The colors in the ribbons around the ring make this one that is very versatile in the decor it will coordinate with. We chose to give this one clear strings to hang from, rather than using tulle. This technique really gives the mobile a "floating" illusion. Lots of whimsical butterflies floating around, what more could a little princess ask for?

Random Acts of Kindness

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I CAN do.” -Edward Everette Hale

I recently came across a fabulous event designer who did something amazing to celebrate her birthday. On her 38th birthday, she committed 38 random acts of kindness (RAOK). I am so inspired by this that I've already talked to my hubby about making it a goal for us to go out of our way and do something kind and unexpected for someone at least once a week. I think this would be a wonderful way to teach our daughter compassion, and hopefully warm someone's heart in the process!

Art for a Cause! Helping Kids with Cancer and the St. Baldrick's Foundation

A good friend of mine from high school has the most gorgeous family! His children are beautiful and you can see the happiness radiating through them in their photos! But, behind all the smiles there is a past that would stop your heart. When their youngest child, Andy, turned one, he was diagnosed with cancer. Andy has been brave and undergone numerous treatments and is now a happy, healthy little boy! (I've once heard little boys described as noise with dirt on them...I wonder if little Andy fits the bill?)

So, to celebrate Andy's health, between now and March 6, we will give 20% of all sales from our esty site to the St. Baldrick's Foundation. St. Baldrick's is the world's largest volunteer-driven fundraising event for childhood cancer research. At Foundation events all throughout the year, brave volunteers shave their heads, raising funds for childhood cancer research. Like runners in a marathon, "shavees" collect donations from friends, family and associates. The St. Baldrick's Foundation receives these funds and makes grants to research experts to find new and better cures for fighting kids’ cancer.

Or you can make a direct donation to Andy's mom's site here:

Check out this awesome photo of Andy and his mom that was transformed into a pop art silhouette!
