This year I do hope to better my health, , get more organized and get more accomplished when I create. I want to work on putting more effort into small details and have a more polished look to everything I do.
I have already begun my effort of better health, by drinking less soda- I am ADDICTED to coke, cherry pepsi or dr. pepper- and was drinking up to 4 ( or more- yikes!) a day- and NOT drinking enough water. I found this DELICIOUS water!! http://www.nestle-purelife.us/flavors/splash.asp
omgosh- tho it's not shown- the raspberry is soooo good- real fruit tasting- like fresh raspberries.
yum- and I am proud to say that I now only allow one soda a day for myself- soon to be less then that!
I also am so glad to have the kids back in school today!! teehee- I need some alone time- we had friends over all week last week and 3 to 4 girls shriek at epic decibels! The poor dog would hide under my desk when it got really loud.
now on to my card for this weeks sketch at 2s4y. I used one of my new snowflakes from K&Co. The Paper is from Scenic Route, and I added some KI lace paper, with some cricut cut letters, that I also glittered. my michaels pearls and button and twine bow finish it off.
I also wanted to share my new years project I made for Bobunny's blog last week. I used all Double Dot cardstock and made it very colorful- I loved it til I saw Shanna's set on there- her pink and black set is AWESOME- check it out!
I used lots of glitter glue and gems, and fun stuff- but I think the BEST part of it - are the peppermint cupcakes I made to show off the star picks I made.
I used regular devils food cake mix and added about 2 tsp. of peppermint flavoring. Then I made my homemade buttercream icing- and added about 1 tsp of peppermint flavoring to that.
I topped the cupcakes with red peanut m&m's - aren't they cherry-like looking! and some crushed peppermint puff candies- these are less hard then candy canes ( which hurt my teeth a bit to crunch) (they are more like afterdinner mints) and they kind of melt into the icing- so they are really YUMMY
Have a wonderful day! and dont forget- I'm still taking comments to enter into my blog candy giveaway! it goes til Jan 15th!
