Old McDonald had a farm...
The farm is coming to my daughters school tomorrow and I decided after seeing this months Cricut Magazine, that I had to break out "Create a Critter" and make some cupcakes!!!
I cut the critters at 2 1/2" and used popsicle sticks to attach them to the cupcakes!!! I basically followed the directions in the magazine except I used googly eyes!!! I think they came out really cute and Caleigh enjoyed helping momma make animals for school.
I iced them with green frosting so it looked like they were in the grass...if I say so myself they taste pretty dang good......maybe someday soon I will attempt to do this with my Cricut Cake and gumpaste

Wall art for GiGi

I am so sorry that I haven't kept my promise and made anything new...I suffer from fibromyalgia and have had a really rough few days!!! Then on top of all that comes with the fibro....I have bronchitis uggghh.....I think the Stampede just really took it out of me.
For Christmas I wanted to make something special for my daughters GiGi to hang on her wall at work.
This was my first experience with glass and was very simple to make. I am going to try really hard to get something new made!!!

Take time to stop and smell the roses

Wow!!!! Thats all I can say!!!! Thank you to everyone who has helped me figure this out today and to all of you who have followed me!!! It may take a minute but I will get it all together!!!!
My friend Marianne asked me to post the very first rose I ever made so this one is for you Marianne

After CHA, so many pictures of the DCWV paper dresses and roses were after watching several tutorials online this is my version of the paper rose.  I added some ribbon around a $3.00 walmart candle and added the rose....

I thought this cute little gift tag would add a nice touch and would make a great gift for a friend who needed something to make them smile when things get hectic!!!!

Hi ya'll....I finally did it

Ok so I have been saying that I was going to start a blog but just wasn't sure how or what I would post.......well here it is!!!! so the very first thing I am going to post is my paperbag flowers......I hope you like them and I promise I will get the recipe up and when I get a recorder maybe I will do a video tutorial
