Cupcake Frenzy

One of my favorite things to do is to make cakes. But one of the things I am constantly asked to do is to make cupcakes. I love the baking process, so fun and easy. But the decorating for me tends to me more time consuming since I must decorate each one individually. The overall result though is so gratifying though. Here are some of my favorites.

This was for an Alice in Wonderland themed birthday party. "Eat Me!"

I loved the concept for the cupcakes. My favorite part was the 1 life preserver surrounded by all the shark fins!! 

These superhero cupcakes were so cool.  BAM!

This was a challenging cupcake theme since it was for a baby shower and the sex was unknown. We went with a festive colorful theme! (She had a boy, by the way!)

Wedding shower cupcakes. Loved their Disney's Tiki Room theme! Who doesn't love the Enchanted Tiki Room?!?

This was for my sister's babyshower. The theme was "mommy-to-bee" and of course the cupcakes were topped with a bit of honey!

Christmas at the Changs

Here is a sneak peak of my house through the eyes of my iphone.
I have yet to get a great camera to take all my pictures, so my iphone will do for the time being.

I made the "Joy to the World" banner and the ring garland on my mantle. I went with red, green, and gold colors this year for Christmas. It seemed very festive for my first Christmas at my house.

My mom gave me the tiny light up town. My mom always put it out for Christmas and it kind of reminds me of Christmas at my parents.  I just love it! The wreath is something I made with leftover branches from my Christmas tree. I had sparkly stuff in a bag and decided to make the wreath shimmer.
Also, I was very excited about putting up Christmas lights! My first time ever and it was so fun!

Loving Personalized Pillows

While I was on Etsy today, one thing I saw were many decorative pillows, and noticed how many different ways to personalize pillows. What a great idea to give your home some extra meaning!

 These scrabble inspired pillows hit a soft spot for me. I am a scrabble fan, and this caught my attention right away! I love that you can make your own words too!

This silhouette pillow is so sweet. I think it would be perfect for a family.

Anything embroidered is fun and adds a homey feel to a house, but to have the state that holds your heart is just great! I love it because I am forever and always a California girl. 

Initial pillows are personalization to the max. I can see this is pillow in my master bedroom. I love the burlap and heart, too!  

Which one of these was your favorite?

DIY Snow Globe

I have been seeing these DIY snow globes on pinterest since last year. I want to make many more, but I needed to test it out on one first.

 I used 4 items only to make the snow globe
Empty jar
Glue gun
Any fun ornament
(okay...technically 5 items if you want to count the water as well!)

I hot glued the bottom of my nutcracker ornament to the bottom of the jar lid.

Then I added all my assortment of glitter into the jar. At Michael's they sell the assorted glitter samples set for $2. I like the different glitter textures more, but whatever you have is just as good.

Then I filled the jar will water and twisted the jar lid back on a shook my DIY snow globe!

Here's the finished product. It is so very easy. I put it on my mantle for now. I cannot wait to make more! Enjoy!
