Truffle Cherries

These little chocolate's might not look like much but they are some of the best chocolate covered marchino cherries I have every had. They were very easy and best of all no waiting weeks for the fondent to go liquid. You can eat these babies after and over night in the fridge or cool place.
Here is the link to the recipe:

Upsy Daisy Showcase

I have decided that I want to have a booth at the ISB Spring Fair this coming May so I have officially begun to prepare. I have made 27 card with this stamp set in the last 5 days and am not ready to move on to the next set.
This card pictured above was my last one and one of my favorite. The paper is just right and the layout worked really well.

This card above is probably my next favorite.

These ones I am very happy with and they flew together. I love it when simple a nice work together!

Rose Garden Tea Party

Well here is the invitaion for this years Winter tea party. Jouette wanted to call it Rose Garden so I made a invitation that refected the name. I usually make card type ones but this idea I saw as an actual wall hanging but I thought it would make a nice card. I wanted to be able to see the flowers. So often they get covered up and you can't see all the work that went into them. I stamped almost all the images with black ink then colored them in with watercolor crayons. Then I used a blender pen to smooth the crayon into a nice color.
I will post more pictures of the tea party once we have it on the 7th of January.

Homemade Ravioli

I found the recipe for these homemade ravioli on another blog that I follow. I love homemade pasta so I decided to give them a try. We really loved them!

They were a bit of work but the lady on the other blog said to plan two hours to make them. It didn't take me more than an hour. You do need to make two recipes if the pasta dough to use all the filling recipe. I filled mine with spinach, mushrooms, and ricotta cheese. But you can fill them however your family would like them best. There are all kinds of fill recipes out there. I want to try a pumpkin filling some time;)

Here is the link to the blog where I got the recipe:

Xijvien is one!

Wow my baby has just turned one, well it has been a few weeks now. I have been slow to get things posted since this has been such a busy month. I forget just because the kids are out of school that this doesn't mean that my life is any less crazy. In some ways it is more crazy, just a different kind.
Well I can not take credit for this amazing cake but my dear husband James made and decorated this cake. But I did want to show it off. I can hardly wait to see what he does for Bhavik's big number three birthday in the next week. Hope to get on and post some more of my current projects soon!

I'm so Lucky
