Christmas Eve Eve!

Well here it is... Christmas is upon us and once again, with a wink of an eye it will pass as quickly as it came. We, as a family, hit hard times this year, but I am thankful to God that he made us strong and faithful to deal with all of it. I am thankful for the strong faith I have in our Lord, that no matter what, he will always be there to guide us. I am also thankful that my friends and family are close to me. So just as a little Christmas wish, I wish you all a safe and joyous Christmas and that you all are blessed this coming year and beyond! I love you all and thank you for all the joy you have all brought to me.

Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday Jesus

Yesterday was my mom's birthday. And we were able to enjoy some time with her. I made her an Alice in Wonderland themed cake. The colors pink, purple and the stripes represent the cat and the big green bow represent the Mad Hatters hat. I loved the outcome and I know she loved it as well. The inside was yellow cake with coconut cream filling! Man, it was delish!! Here's the cake:

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!

Happy Scrapping and Baking!

My Holiday Work Lunch

So Today is my Holiday Work Lunch! Really excited to spend sometime "out of work" even though it's still going to be at work, with my co-workers. I was busy busy making 24 cupcakes yesterday for my co-workers and I loved loved how they came out.. I raised the icing up so it can look like a semi christmas tree and then I put sprinkles and a yellow little wanna-be star on top. Here they are... I think I'm getting better and better, don't you think? Oh and I also filled them with cherry! DELISH!

Happy Baking and Scrapping Everyone!

Busy Holiday Season

Goodness, it's been absolutely crazy this season. I mean it's to expect it... but not as hectic like this. I haven't even sent out the winner for Vintage Grove Jewlery. I'll send an extra little gift to the winner because of the huge delay. It's been over a month and I'm slowly coming back.. even though these next 2 weeks are going to be the most hectic. I have scrapped though, and I wish I could get the pictures on here on this post, but I guess I can do that later. I have also done a lot of baking and more will be on it's way tonight. Company parties for my husband and I and Christmas/Holiday dinners with family and friends have kept me quite busy… but we have had a very happy holiday season so far. Here are some of the baking goodies I have made:

2 tier Thanksgiving cakes

Holiday Cupcakes for My Hubby's Work

Delish Forest Cake for our good friends Rick and Gurdge.

Poker Chip Cake for our great friend Julio on his Birthday

I hope everyone is doing great this holiday season. I really miss all my SB.COM friends, but it's been so hectic that there is no way to keep up on there and with all the baking and scrapping I have to do before the end of the year. I hope to be back to a normal "less" busy schedule soon, but for now, please keep checking back!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
