Now that we are doing events I see things in a new light when I am shopping. I am always looking around to see what I can use in my next display. One day Groupon had these Ferris Wheel cupcake holders that I just had to have. I love that they spin and really added that playful touch that I was looking for. I think the adults were more amazed with them than the children, lol. Instead of cupcakes, each one contained a vanilla cake ball, soo yummy.
There were a lot of sweets, including chocolate pops, cake pops, cake balls and chocolate covered oreos. We also adorned the tables with lollipop flower bouquets that the kids really enjoyed.

Even though it is super cold today, we were blessed with a warm day on Easter Sunday so we took a trip to the zoo. I went with my husband and his grandson. Our trip really made me miss the days when my daughters were young enough to take to the zoo and seeing the delight in their eyes as they were able to meet animals from all over the world. Philadelphia Zoo is America's first zoo and you can tell that the staff really loves the animals. There have been many upgrades to the Zoo since my daughters were little and I really had a good time. Money and time well spent.

I got my first pocket letter yesterday from my scrapping sister Barb. I was so excited! I can't wait to use every thing in here, perfect for cards or to accent a scrapbook page. I am not usually one to jump on a scrapping fad but I must admit that I sent a couple out to my friends and yes they are addictive. I am even thinking about joining a couple of swaps. Have you jumped on the pocket letter craze yet?

I was really super proud of myself that everything was made from scratch! I got a candy-apple red T-fal mixer for Mother's day a few years ago and to this day I think it is my most favorite gift. And now I am putting that mixer to good use! Tonight I will be playing in chocolate making cake pops, chocolate covered oreos and chocolate covered strawberries. I will share pics soon. I have my first official gig (a baby's baptismal) on November 23, 2014, wish me luck!

Every once in a while I get baby fever and the quickest cure is to be around a baby so I volunteered to watch my friend's 5 month old baby girl. She is so precious especially when she wasn't screaming her lungs out. I must say however that my fever has gone away. I will see her again the next time I need a fix, lol.

I think every one of my nieces and nephews are going to get one of these for their birthday eventually. This one is for my daughter's boyfriend. He is a big fan of my crafts and was really surprised when I gave this to him. He is a really nice young man even though he is a Miami Heat fan. Lol!

I absolutely love the fall. The air is crisp and refreshing. It is apple season, which happens to be one of my top 5 fruits - I even found candy apples at the Reading Terminal Market. We can turn the air conditioners off and save on the power bill. And the holidays are right around the corner. This year I decided I will decorate for Halloween, might even get a costume too. I am also trying my hand at cookie making and my first gig will be a baptism in November, stayed tuned for pics. My mojo has picked up a little and I was able to create a few cards and my customer ordered 3 more. So far October looks like it is going to be a super busy month.

I am supposed to be making four cards for a customer, instead I am trying to get some ideas out of my head. This is going to be such a long night! I just can't focus. In the meantime I did complete this pop up card that I have been picturing for a while now. Simple Stories Say Cheese line is the most versatile Disney line I have ever seen. Shout out to Simple Stories!
