Happy Valentine's Day... Almost!

Well it is almost the big day.... where we get spoiled by our loved ones.... oops wrong channel. Where WE spoil our loved ones! :-) The kids had their celebrations at school and my dear friend and I had a little party for our little people while the big kids were away at school... A fun Fun day! And we get to do it all over again tomorrow! We don't really have any big plans yet for actual Valentine's Day... but I am sure a few treats later my little kiddies and not so little kiddies will feel loved regardless! My hubby will most likely be working so I will be sure to pack him an extra special lunch! Think the guys will razz him if I cut his sandwiches into heart shapes? I may just do it anyway! :-)

This year I had some great portraits taken of my kids for Valentine's Day! I have even gotten some of them out on time! :-) The rest will arrive late... but you guys should expect that of me by now! LOL! The only valentine creation I did take a photo of (Bad me!) was this super cute cupcake I made for Katie's teacher! She is such a wonderful teacher!!!

This is the second one of these sweet little things I have made. I can see it becoming a habit... I am a bit of a cupcake-aholic... on and off the lips! LOL!
"All cupcakes... All the time"
 That should be my personal motto, but it kind of goes against the whole Weight Watcher's regiment I have adapted over the last few months! ;-) Although, I am pleased to report that these cupcakes are Zero Calories and bring just as much joy in my soul as the real thing... There may just be hope for me yet!

If you are interested in trying to make one of these sweet little treats you can check out the tutorial on or follow this link The Stamp Goddess

Well that is it for today... I am off to Calgary and a quick stop at Ikea (One of my favorite places!)

A New Blog, A New Year

Well I am trying my hand at blogging once again! LOL! I tried this a couple years back and failed miserably! I don't even remember where to find my other blog, or what it was even called! I am feeling a little more confident this time around... don't ask me why!!! :-)

Check back often, I am going to do my best to keep my artwork posted on a regular basis as well as update my own families adventures! My goal this year is to increase the time I spend in my craft room creating things that make me happy! There never seems to be enough time in the day to get much created so I find myself hovering over my desk during the wee hours of the morning... Makes for a tired mommy come 7am, but it works for me... once I have had my caffiene that is!

Thanks for stopping by... watch for some upcoming artwork posts!
