Be My Valentine!

Good morning fellow crafters! Today's My Pink Stamper Design Team assignment is a to create a Valentine's Day themed project of any kind. I was excited to start getting in a "Valentine's" mode, because I have a few ideas for gift boxes I'll be making in the coming weeks. For today's post, I made a quick card using a sentiment from My Pink Stamper's More Fabulous Phrases as the focus of the card...

Thanks for stopping by to check out my project, and be sure to swing by My Pink Stamper today and wish Robyn a HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!!

Fortune Cookie Tutorial

Good morning friends! Many of you asked how I made those adorable fortune cookies, and I wanted to share the tutorial I had used myself to make them. They are SO easy!! Note: Instead of using a glue stick and paper clips, I just used a glue dot :)

January Pinkalicious Blog Hop

Welcome to the January Pinkalicious Blog Hop! You should've hopped over from the every-so-crafty Carissa @ Sprinkled with Glitter. If you're just stopping by for a visit, and you'd like to hop along, head on over to My Pink Stamper to start at the beginning.

Our theme today was Fresh New Beginning to the New Year! I focused more on the "new year" aspect of our theme, as we will be having a Chinese New Year celebration coming up at work. I wanted to make something quick and easy, since I need to make so many of them, but also make it fitting to the celebration. I decided to make fortune cookies to wish everyone luck in the year to come. Here's how the first "batch" turned out....

Here's a close-up...

A vacation, a birthday, and lots of baking...

First and foremost, Happy New Year!! I want to thank all of my wonderful followers who have stuck with me through this absence. with the busy holidays, 4 December birthdays, work and a two year old, I was in dire need of a vacation. Unfortunately, that included crafting as well!

With that said, I'm back!! But before I start sharing paper crafts, I did want to share with you a few pictures of my son's birthday sweets - baking being one of my biggest passions next to crafting! Enjoy!!

His cake...Some cake balls...And some yummy cookies!
