Painting

Hi everyone,
Lately I've been painting and I just wanted to share some of my new creations. Hope you like them!

 These two were inspired by Lilly Pulitzer.

What should I paint next?

The Fault in Our Stars

Hello everyone,
Last week I saw a fantastic movie called The Fault in Our Stars. My best friend and I saw it together so I decided to make us matching bows. To make this bow, I used 4 different colored ribbons which include: houndstooth, bright blue, black, and white.
Have you seen this movie? What did you think?

I'm Back!

Hi everyone!
I haven't been on in a long time and thought, since it is summer, I would start to share my crafts again. Lately, I've been making a lot of baked goods such as cake, cupcakes, and cookies. I love to decorate them because it is so relaxing! 
 On the last weekend before summer, I made six, 2 tiered mini 4 inch cakes for my teachers. I used yellow cake, vanilla icing dyed teal, and then the regular white icing to decorate the cakes.
Once I was all done, I placed the cakes in boxes with super cute patterns on them and tied a neon piece of ribbon around it.

Cake Push-Pops

Hi everyone!
I haven't been on in such a long time! Recently I have had a great deal of interest in baking. Today I made cake push-pops. This project was very easy to make and it was fun!
 First, you pour batter in a thin pan and bake it for about 15 minutes. They make a pan called "whoopie pie" that you could purchase instead of making your own circles.
 These are the push-pop containers. I got mine at Joanns, a package of 6 for $6.99 but used a 50% off coupon. What a good deal!
 Once you have the cake baked, use the top of the push pop to create circles.
 Next, as you are stacking the circular cake pieces add frosting between each layer.
 Top it off with a swirl of frosting...decorate with sprinkles or other candies.
Here you go! The finished product!
 
I had a great time making these push-pops and look forward to making more, but in different colors!
