Cupcake Bouquet

Today I discovered the coolest thing... cupcake bouquets! These cute edible bouquets would be perfect for a baby shower or bridal shower centerpiece. First, find a Styrofoam ball that fits your flower pot and decorate the pot with ribbons, bows, tulle or any accessory that would be appropriate. Then, frost your cupcakes to resemble flowers (the top half of an oreo or cookie crumbs can be used for the sunflower center). Finally, attach the decorated cupcakes to the Styrofoam ball with toothpicks or popsicle sticks. For great step-by-step instructions, visit Baa Baa, Cupcake, Have You Any Frosting? by clicking here.

Postive Message For Kids

{photo credit: ModEco Kids}

I was recently browsing around ModEco Kids, a wonderful website for eco-friendly kid's things, and came across this chore chart. I absolutely love the modern feel and the top phrase that says, "This is how I contribute to my family." What a wonderful positive message to send to children. I only wish that I had seen this chart last December, when I searched all over the planet for a cool chore chart!

Perfectly Elegant!


Isn't this brooch elegant? It's made from layers of silver, sage green and cream silk organza and satin. I absolutely love the glass beads in the center because every girl needs a little bling. The creator of this brooch, SewBrookie, was smart enough to attach the "flower" to a clip that can be used in your hair, on your purse or even on a sweater. Just think how this accessory could dress up a plain black coat. Now guess the price? $35? $40? Nope, just $18! I think that's a great price for such a versatile handmade piece.

Besides brooches, SewBrookie also offers handbags from beautiful patterned fabrics. To check out all the cool stuff she has to offer, visit her Etsy site at http://www.etsy.com/shop/SewBrookie
