Ice Cream Soda

Cherry On Top

Who's Your Boyfriend?  I forgot!

Is it A, B, C, D, E, F, G......?

Do remember singing that jump rope song as a kid?

I completely forgot about it until my daughter was skipping rope on the back patio while singing it.

Of course, we had to make Ice Cream Soda Cherry on Top Cupcakes!

Ahhh....Memories.  Days of jump ropes and silly songs!

Chocolate cupcakes with cherry cola frosting.  Top it with sprinkles and a cherry and you have got yourself a cupcake sister!

Now, off you go.  Jump rope with your little girl today!

Shutter Up


I LOVE Char over at Crap I've Made.  She is hysterical.  And, I'm in love with these. 
I want to track her down and take them.  But that would be mean.  So I won't.

I will, I must. MAKE. MY. OWN.

I headed out to Habitat ReStore and found my own set of of shutters. 


Yeah, I'm that good.

Stay tuned... Those bad boys are in the works and will be posted soon!
