Long time

Wow it has been along time since I made a post. It doesn't help that our Internet has been so slow and the VPN has hardly worked. Or that my Sister was staying with us, or that I happened to start a new hobby and that has taken all my time. I am now in the states so maybe I will find some time to card make or make some fun food. Well to tell you a little bit about my new hobby. I started taking Bollywood dance classes in April and it has taken over my life. I have completely fallen in love with it, not to mention that it is a fabulous cardio workout. I have learned two dances and have preformed once with the group of ladies that are in the class. I hear that we have been invited to perform in September too so I will be hopefully learning two more dances. If I figure out how I will try and post the video of our performance.

Zekaia was treat last week for Family Home Evening and I have been wanting to try making these cupcakes I had at a ward party a few month ago. They are Chocolate cupcakes that you cut a cone shape into the top. Then you scoop some raspberry jam into the inside followed by a spoon of double cream. Then you put the top back on. They sprinkled them lightly with some cocoa powder but I did half with cocoa powder and the other half with powdered sugar. Yummy! We all enjoyed them!


Here is a card I made for my nephew's 20th birthday. I am really sad because I was looking for the invitations I made for Jouette's birthday party next week and realized that I didn't take any picture of the before we gave them out. Oh well too late. My VPN has not worked in 3 weeks so I have been unable to post anything and honestly since my sister is here visiting me I haven't had the time to make a post any ways.

Kid Birthday card Stationary box

Front of box
Inside view

Flower tags

3x3 note cards

I wanted to keep the cards simple so they are all the same layout.

I can't sell this box because when I was making it I made a mistake and glued down a part wrong then had to rip the box apart to fix it but oh well Jouette didn't care so I told her she could have it and I will just give the cards out myself.

Girl Birthday Cards

I made this card for a birthday party that Jouette attended today. The one below is for a party she is attending next Saturday.
The card below is one that I made for a party that Zekaia attended last weekend. I just love cupcakes and am a bit sad that it has taken me so long to get this set out and use it. I have had it for almost two years. Oh well it will be seeing ink a lot here in the future I think!

Father's Day Cards

I know that Mother's Day is first but I thought I would get around to the Mother's Day cards and I just ran out of time. It helped that there wasn't enough interest in last months class that I ended up cancelling it. So I never made the Mother's Day cards. Oh well I can't take time back so I am just going to press forward. The middle card is my favorite but I made several of the bottom one since it was simple to put together. These three cards and more like it will be available for purchase at Tai Tai on Wednesday.

Way behind Some of James recent baking

James made this beautiful cake a few Sunday's ago. The thick chocolate frosting on top is delicious and the butter cream filling was my favorite part.

These chocolate Easter eggs are filled with a peanut butter filling!

I'm so Lucky
