It's Our Memorial Day Cake

Sure, you expected something in patriotic colors.  But this is the way the polka dot shop rocks the holiday.

I'm going to pour a home made ganache glaze over it before serving.mmmmmmm

Matchbox Swap

I was in another matchbox swap.  They are so much fun and sooo addicting.  This box was made for me by Lynn.  I love that crepe paper ruffle around the edge.  And it's glittered! Pretty flowers at the bottom go with the fairy flower girl theme.Beautiful

And here is a shot of the tiny gifts inside:  all kinds of charms, trims, and baubles.
The last picture shows the box I sent my partner.

I love these swaps and can't wait for the next one.

Pretty in Pink

Hannah is the sweetest little girl who just turned one.  Her mom, Lynn,  made the pretty in pink headband to match her birthday outfit. Lynn makes a variety of headbands and has them for sale in her etsy store.

This is my favorite one, I love the stripes.
And here is proof that sometimes you do need a little help from your friends. I think I'm gonna make a little cake so I can do this.  No Hands mom!

To see the rest of this party head on over to Lynn's blog

Crepe Paper and Lace Cupcake Toppers

I am always on the lookout for affordable cupcakes.  I have an inability to frost them properly.  I just can't do it.  To buy them from the bakery they are $3.00 each.  OUCH!  I can afford them from the supermarket but they always have garish colors and sprinkles out the wazoo.
  But today things changed.  I found affordable cupcakes at the supermarket in a tasteful color.  No neon sprinkles or tie dye pattern any where on them.  They were 10 for $6.00 and BONUS:  they taste great.  Win win win win.
  So for fun I dressed them up with some toppers and had a party!  With myself.  Boo ya!
