THE COMPLETE BLESSINGWAY ROUND-UP (with LOTS of FREE printables, great blessingway/baby shower activities + links to all recipes & tutorials)

So, Baby Cupcake is due to make an appearance in the world in less than 4 weeks (yes, less than 28 days!). After having had complications from the very start (plus a diagnosed high risk pregnancy condition) and spending months literally counting down the days to full-term, I finally find myself on its doorstep. And now […]

PINK LEMONADE (with fresh lemons & cranberry juice)

So, I finally got around to blogging about this recipe (recently mentioned in my New Year’s Eve menu post)! I was so excited to get the opportunity to try making pink lemonade for the very first time in advance of my blessingway/baby shower and I hope that you’ll love this recipe as much as I now do! […]

AMAZING SUGAR COOKIES (and how to decorate them with fondant)

There were 3 things that I offered my blessingway guests as thank you gifts; a scented candle, a choice of accessories (bags, scarves, etc.) and these cookies! I have wanted an excuse to make fondant-covered cookies for some time and this occasion was the perfect one. I am so incredibly happy with this sugar cookie […]

DIY FONDANT FLOWERS & BUTTERFLIES (AKA making sugar paste even sweeter!)

I own the Wilton Ultimate Decorating Set (which I love, by the way), so many of the tools I needed for […]

THANK YOU TAGS FOR PRETTY GIFT BAGS (& a free download for you!)

My blessingway/baby shower was yesterday (it was lovely :)) and now I finally have time to post about all the projects I undertook in preparation for the day. As there were so many little projects, I really don’t know where to start, but I suppose here is as good a place as any ;). I […]

PROJECT PINTEREST BLESSINGWAY EDITION IN FULL EFFECT (& Operation Advent isn’t far behind!)

It feels like it’s been a ridiculously long time ago since I posted. Of course it hasn’t really… it’s just that I have been doing so many little Project Pinterest tasks over the past week, I have not had time to write about any of them. So here’s my attempt at a starting place! 5 […]

PROJECT PINTEREST (2 editions in 1!)

It’s that time of year… and it’s all happening! Actually, it has been since Halloween! Of course, I have created more work for myself by starting a crafting circle (which meets in my home), celebrating Thanksgiving (sort of) which I have never done before and is not traditional in this part of the world and agreeing […]
