Look Whooooo Just Turned Two!

My baby's 2nd birthday was two days before my husband's 30th--so we HAD to have a shindig! I hadn't ever worked with fondant, but I wanted to give it a try. Turns out it's not as tricky as I was afraid of--it's just super yummy play doh!!

I snagged some of these from Amazon: Cutie Cupcake Summer Cookie Cutter Variety Set, which I kind of jumped up and down about, becomes it comes with FOUR sets!! I whipped up a batch of marshmallow fondant all by myself, and this is how it turned out: 

Hah! Can you believe it?  I made those!  And if I can do it, I'm telling you, anyone can!!

And when you add the hubster's favorite super chocolate cake from Costco, plus a pile of pizza, everybody was happy!

Falling For You Valentine Card

When I saw this Valentine Tree shape at Miss Kate Cuttables, I couldn't wait to make it into a card! (I also used this shape for the border!)

Frozen Valentine's Day Printable Tags

Did anyone else totally forget that Valentine's Day is next week? Just me?
 Okay then. Luckily my kids have a way of keeping me on track. Yesterday my oldest daughter came home from school, class list in hand, and demanded that we go candy shopping. After all, "Valentine's Day is a big deal mom! A BIG deal!"

Well sure, who can argue with that? 

The girls wanted to come up with something special to give their friends, neighbors and teachers, so we put our heads together and started brainstorming. I don't know if it's the massive amounts of snow piling up in our driveway, or the fact that the Frozen soundtrack has been playing non-stop in our house since November... but either way I'm loving this year's Valentines inspired by non other than our favorite snowman!
How cute is he? Seriously! 
If I had to pick a favorite character from Frozen, it would definitely be Olaf. He's charming, lovable, and has excellent comedic timing! Everything you want in a Valentine right?! 
There are so many cute ways you could package these Valentines! We decided to do jars of Hugs for the girls' teachers and dance instructors because according to my daughter, "Grown ups really REALLY like chocolate." And we put together little "build a snowman" kits for classmates and friends using sandwich bags. 

The girls and I had a blast putting these together assembly-line style! They were pretty quick and easy to do and I love that marshmallows, pretzels, and chocolate chips are fairly inexpensive (and one bag goes a long way!) 

So if you are still looking for an adorable treat for your kids to pass out on Valentine's Day, I have GREAT news for you! You can download your very own printable tags HERE!

Consider it my Valentine's Day present to you, just cause I love ya!

Snowflake Card

 I love the simple beauty of this card, with just a touch of glitter (it's hard to see in the picture, sorry!).  And now that I've finished the snowflake design, it will be easy for you to make one.  Ridiculously easy.  As always, I'd love to see what you make!
