~Valentine Coasters

~Hi again! I wanted to post a picture of my latest set of coasters made for my home.. I needed some valentine's coasters and thought, heck, I will make my own! We had a workshop in December where we created handstamped coasters and we had so much fun.. it even continued it on to the next week and we all ran out and bought more tiles, so we could make more since we became so addicted to these things. They made great gifts for the holidays! Well, I had some spare tiles and I had just gotten this new Stampin' Up valentine stamp and I thought it would be perfect for my coasters. So, what do you think?? They came out pretty well. I also used the Stampin' Up french script background stamp in a soft gray. I added some cork to the backs of each tile after I completed the process. I hope everyone has a great Valentine's Day and a good weekend too.. Thanks for coming back!!

Miles' Birthday Cupcake and Cake Pops~

~Happy Saturday! It's almost Valentine's Day and one of my most favorite holidays! How can you not love LOVE! Plus, if you know me, you know I LOVE pink and it is everywhere right now! Well, we just got through with another craft night. This time it was a cupcake party! We decorated lots and lots of cupcakes, made valentine's soap. We had so much fun.. lots of sprinkles and frosting on the kid's (and adults) faces!! When I got home I got started making these treats for my friend's nephew for his birthday party today. They are simple, but bright and cute! He loves my cake pops and asked his aunt for his own pops on his birthday, so here they are.. he needed a cake too, so what else, a matching giant cupcake! I also gave her some cute spiral birthday candles to add to the top, so it should be really cute.. Sorry for no posts lately.. I have one more today too! Happy Birthday Miles!!
