We are in the process of selling our current house...
and buying a new one...
Have had family in town to visit. (Seriously, are my cousin's kids not absolutely adorable?!!)

So I loved these really clever and creative Hibiscus Slip-On Coasters from Etsy Store I came Diammalimm Home across yesterday on Twig and Thistle. Um, hello, dual-purpose -- a coaster AND a a wine marker. Brilliant.
Hibiscus not your thing? How about a Lotus flower from Etsy store The Ring Leader?
Also very clever are these reusable chalkboard labels from Lil B Designs. Just have your guests write their name and wipe off at the end of the night.
If you are looking for a little more color, I love these tags from This Wine is Mine. (Cute name, too.)
Need a drink?

1- It is adorable.
2- It looks so easy a kid could do it. (This translates to me being able to attempt.)
The recipe and pictures come from Taste of Home Magazine.
1. Bake a round cake. Cover in chocolate icing.
2. Place chocolate chips in circles around the center for the seeds.
3. Place yellow peeps around the edges for the petals.

A first grade girl handed in the drawing below for a homework assignment...
After it was graded and the child brought it home, she returned to school the next day with the following note:
Dear Ms. Davis,
I want to be very clear on my child's illustr ation. It is NOT of me on a dance pole on a stage in a strip joint. I work at Home Depot and had commented to my daughter how much money we made in the recent snowstorm. This drawing is of me selling a shovel.

was "driving" in his toy car and she asked him where he was going. He sweetly answered, "Aunt Cake's." (Aunt Cake would be me. Short for Aunt KK. He is such a smart boy. He knows the keys to my heart.) Um, told you guys I was world's greatest aunt.Next, I know Easter is a little while away, but I ran across these napkins on Martha Stewart (who else?) and had to share. You can get full folding instructions here. I would say I would attempt to do this at Easter, but (confession) I only use napkins once and put them in the washer only to never iron them for use again. So...who am I kidding, I am sure I won't be motivated enough to iron anything between now and then. So if you guys attempt this, let me know.
Lastly, I have a birthday party for a two year old girl this weekend. Any fun ideas of what little girls might like?
Max is turning two in a few weeks and I am really excited about my gift for him. Kristen is redoing his room with this theme from Pottery Barn Kids.
I am having my friend, Betsy, make him a stool with his name and a pirate ship. Here are some of her designs.

1- My Bruschetta
2- My Brownies
Sadly, neither are gourmet. But that's not why you come here.
Today I will give away my brownie recipe. And it comes from a box. The first secret is, you must get the Betty Crocker Triple Chocolate Chunk mix. Trust me.
Let them cool and ice them with chocolate icing.
Then watch your brownies disappear in an instant.
**Note, I just reread this and realized you guys must think I am crazy. Like you didn't know how to cook boxed brownies. I am telling you, though, you will come back and thank me if you follow these instructions.**
XOXO (Um, anyone else excited Gossip Girl is back on???)

Like the banner (perfect for you guys who do not have cricuts ; )
I have to admit, even though I am not a cat fan, I thought these were super cute. (Megan, this excludes Tavia.)
That is my kind of shopping.

Allison had me make some invitations for the special event. I think the bird really makes it "Finley."
I am sure you are wondering what this wedding picture has to do with my niece's baptism. Well, my mom had her wedding dress made into....Finley's baptismal gown.
Isn't that just the sweetest thing ever?

Basically, all you need is a form (styrofoam, wood, whatever) from the craft store, moss and a glue gun. For more details, click here.

Basically, all you need are jelly beans, styrofoam, a styrofoam ball, a pot and moss. (Cheap, too!) The crafty sister hot glued each jelly bean onto the ball, however, I would think toothpicks would work well, too. (If you have no idea where you hot glue gun is...like me.)
Once completed, add some moss around the base....

Here is someone who used their cricut prior to the new cricut cake (apparently, due out soon. They must have seen the YouTube videos). I think I could soooo do this!

Stephanie claims she is not crafty at all. However, I would say this definitely shows great craftsmanship. So, A + to her and thanks for reading!
