Let's Get Busy!

Ok, so I have been gone for days, weeks, months, I know   ...a long time!  Sorry!!  Actually I have been busy, but I am not ready to show you my new creations just yet.  I have spent the last month learning a new program...which I am very comfortable with now. So... soon I will be able to post some new wonderful designs I am working on.  Until then...my other new love is reading others' blogs....it's so addicting!!  Here's a little something from Shindig Parties TO GO and Nothing But Country .  I thought this whole party idea was so cute!!  Get inspired and get crafty...you have a few days left to help the kids make these for 'Dear Old Dad'!!

It's been a while....

Wow...it's been a while since I have done any blogging...sorry.  I actually have something on my plate that I am working on...coming soon.    
So now that Spring has finally sprung, I am starting my garden for 2011.  Hoping for not quite as many tomatoes as last year....only enough to feed my family, not the entire block!!  So as you know I love container gardening.  Even my veggie garden is growing in a large container.  I was hoping for a Salad Table for Mothers Day, but since that didn't happen, I need to come up with another plan.  While searching the Internet I found a couple cute ideas for container flower garden I thought I would share with you.  Isn't this adorable?  I thought these buckets were on a clothesline but now I see it's actually a curtain rod hanging lower in the window...I LOVE IT!!

Get a load of this old bike...crazy cute!!  My husband would HATE it...but I love it.  If it were up to me I would dig up the entire back yard, add a mulch path and unusual flower beds, containers, and Koi ponds, garden gnomes, bird feeders and special lighting.  My dream garden.  Then way in the back I would add a little playhouse and some grass for Maggie...with her own private garden.  Ok, I will keep dreaming!!

Over the Rainbow Cake

OMG, this cake was soooo time consuming!!  Not hard at all, but it took forever...2 days!!  But it was honestly the best tasting cake I had ever made.  I wished I had a blue layer, but I should have checked my supplies better. Next time...wait!!  Bite my tongue ...there won't be a next time!!  I can't make this again.  Once is good.

The Marble Eggs were made by my daughter Jenn, her husband and their little one, Maggie.  So pretty, too pretty to eat!  We had a GREAT Easter.  Spring has sprung...but the rain; it can stop anytime now.

Happy Spring!
