Cake Pops

Once again, Im in a baking mood!

Im really not sure what is going on here, but I know my children and husband are loving it.

I love cake pops. I feel in love with these about 3 years ago. I made a red velvette one with cream cheese. Lets just say they were scrumptous.

This time I made Strawberry cake pops.

First you make a Strawberry cake, let it cool, and crumble it up. This is were the children come in. What child doesnt LOVE getting messy.

Next I added Strawberry frosting and mixed it up well. Roll into balls and put in the fridge for about an hour. I dipped the sticks into chocolate, and then put them into the balls. Next I put the balls into the fridge again.

Dip into white chocolate, and add sprinkles.

One blog that has amazing pops is Bakerella. You can do some amazing things. I was thinking a Veggie Tale pop would be awsome for a birthday party. Maybe for Mason party I will attempt them.

These pops are Strawberry delicious, and deffinitly worth all the work.

Spring Cupcakes

Some months, I really get into baking. March has been that month.

Today I baked Chocolate cupcakes.

Spring colored frosting, looks so beautiful on the tops of the chocolate cakes.

In Martha Stewarts magazine, I seen some neat designs you can do with colored cupcakes. You could arrange them in different patterns for any type of occasion.

I put small chocolate chips on top of the frosting to top off the delightful cupcakes.

I can not wait for spring, so I am bringing it in with these wonderful colors.

Easy Cherry Cheesecake

Let me first say, that my heart goes out to all the Tsunami victims. What a horrible event, and my prayers go out to them, that is all I can do, but prayer is something huge. We just have to remember that God is in control of EVERYTHING.

With all the snow today, I thought, I needed to make something fun and delicious.

Cherry Cheesecake in muffin cups sounded perfect. These amazing cheesecakes were so easy to make.

2 8oz. Pkgs. cream cheese softened
3/4 c. sugar
2 eggs
1 t. vanilla extract
1 T. lemon juice
vanilla wafers
can of cherry pie filling
paper mini muffin cups

Blend first 5 ingredients together until light and fluffy; set aside. Place a vanilla wafer in the bottom of the paper lined mini- muffin cups. Fill each 2/3 full with cream cheese mixture; bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes. cool; spoon cherry pie filling on top of each cheesecake.

According to my husband the cheesecakes were really yummy. So you really should try them. I'm not a huge dessert eater. But Im a huge fan of making them.

Mail Call!

Today Baylie and Mason delievered mail to Mr. Tiger, Pink Puppy, Tuck the turtle, and many other stuffed animals.

Felt mail was such a delight to make. I had several colors, which made the mail more exciting.

I used my sewing machine to sew around the edges and for the 3 center lines.

For the stamps, I cut out fun shapes out of fabric and felt.

I am having so much fun with the kids, playing mailman.

It is also a fun way to learn colors.

Now all I need is a awesome mailbag.

I am always looking for new ways to entertain the children, exspecially during the winter.
If you have any amazing ideas let me know.

Clothesline Calendar

It only took 2 months, but I finally had some time, to make myself a calendar.

I printed these adorable owl calendars off from My Owl Barn.

I attached the calendars to clothespins, and then clipped them onto a piece of hemp.

The best part of finally getting to a calendar, is that I am now motivated to get my desk area done.

Really, could these be any cuter?

I can not wait until spring, so I can start on my new desk.

I have amazing plans, that I can not wait to start on.

My sister and I, have also been working on my mothers dining room ,and I can not wait to show you the transformation when it is done.

Don't forget once I hit 115 friends I will be doing a free giveaway.

spring pots

Spring is almost here, and it is time to start my plants.

 Today, I started cilantro and basil. My children really enjoyed helping me. Mason really had fun spreading potting mix everywhere.

I really think these plants deserve a nice container.

Stenciled numbers painted white, look amazing on the terracotta pots.

I printed lovely printables out from Creature Comforts.

Nice flags poked through the dirt gives them a little something special.

These turned out so lovely.
Now I cant wait for the herbs to start growing.
