Life is full of challenges, is it not? And the blogosphere is no different. Two weeks ago, Crystal and I decided to “eat from the pantry,” and we invited you to do it with us. Last week, I asked if you’d Book It with me this year and set some reading goals. Today? I’m asking […]

New Year’s Traditions: Bake a New Year’s Cake

Photobucket

As you know, we’re big on birthday cakes around here. So it only follows that we would make the New Year a “birthday” cake as well. We’ve been doing this for quite some time. I can’t even remember when it started. And we usually get a photo of all the kids around the cake that […]

Bob the Builder Birthday Cake

We love Bob the Builder around here. We really do. You would think that now that the toddlers in the vicinity are girls that we’d have moved on to My Little Pony or something. But, no. FishChick loves Bob. It may be that we just have more Bob the Builder movies than any other character or […]

And being challenged by my readers is almost as much fun. I’ve even written an e-book with all sorts of creative, easy, and inexpensive […]

Cupcakes, Anyone?

‘Member these? They were FishBaby’s birthday cakes last month. Well, I linked them up to Cupcake Tuesday where Hoosier Homemade is hosting a cupcake round-up every week. I decided to join the party and bring my last creative birthday (cup)cake endeavor. Cupcakes just sound so sweet and fun and exciting and well, CUTE! Don’t they? […]

Creative Birthday Cake Idea: A Garden of Cupcakes

Despite the fact that she’s oblivious to much going on in her world, I couldn’t let my BABY’s first birthday go by without a creative birthday cake. She may not have a scrapbook, but she’ll have a picture of a special cake, by golly. Since I knew I wanted to give her her own little […]
