I made these cute AIRPLANE sugar cookies for my niece, Callie's "BON VOYAGE & Birthday" party today:) Of course they had to have some "pink" on them.....somewhere:)
JA member & friend, Ashley Gillentine-Wright asked me to make these cute crowns for the Junior Miss & JA Princess pageants held last night at Covenant Academy.
Thanks Ash, I love ya girl:*)
My 1st cousin, Lori Young-Cope is expecting a baby boy, to be named "JAX", very soon!!!
Lori also works at V's Hair Salon, so Venita, Tanara, Tori, Dana, and I hosted a shower for her last Sunday at Venita's home. V's house is absolutely BEAUTIFUL, & was the perfect setting for the shower/tea. We held it outside under the carport & screened in patio. Lori is not really having a certain themed baby room, but she does want everything to be different. She loves the retro black, with primary polka dots, guitars, skulls, (yes skulls!!!), & peace signs..... sorta like a "baby Rocker" theme:)
I made "MINI" vanilla cupcakes with vanilla butter cream frosting, topped with a "MINI" sugar cookie in various colored glaze, then accented with his initial "J". I asked my dear friend, Misty Bolding & her MIL, Patsy Bolding to make the AWESOME cake. It was DELISH!!! Thanks ladies, I love you:)
Lori and baby Jax got loads of gifts, books, and all kinds of cute stuff. I especially love the painting that I got her. Notice baby JAX name in the guitar on the top......pretty cool uh??? I think so:) Also, her friend Heather got her these cute metal letters at Kathy's and I painted them for her to match the room. Overall I think it was an adorable shower, and I had a great time with the girls:)

Ms. Teresa Knowles called me several weeks ago, & ask me to help make some "cute goodies" for a bridal shower that she was hosting at her home. The bride-to-be has chosen an "Alice in Wonderland" theme, with all the showers & receptions to be as whimsical as they can be!!!
I made "MINI" vanilla cupcakes with vanilla butter cream icing, then topped with various glazed colored "MINI" sugar cookies, and added the words "EAT ME" to the tops:)

........I might need some form of medication by the end of this week!!! hahaha just kidding............no I'm not.....I'm being serious:)
I honestly don't know how I'm still going, because I feel like I'm running on empty:)
Yesterday, I had to be at my grandparents house by 5:00am, to stay with my Pap, because my GrannyMa had surgery. I cleaned and cleaned and cleaned, until my fingers were literally bleeding:) Got home, picked up my own house, ran into town to grab a few Subways, then "back to the ranch" to start on some baking.
Thank God for granting peace, strength, but most of all the invention of coffee:)haha Without this, I probably wouldn't have been able to keep up with everything that I need to be doing right now. The next two weeks is TOTAL INSANITY:)......and Relay for Life!!!
Some days I don't even know if I've pee-peed or pooped:)
This week is huge with WCHS Graduation on Friday & Junior Miss pageants on Saturday.
Ms. Paula asked me just last night, hoping I would have time, to make her something "sweet" to take to a post-graduation party at The McGiboney's. Of course, I said "Yes", but shewwwwwwwww, I'm almost over-exhausted:) But, would do anything for a great friend:)
What I really need, is a good ol' trip to the beach for some relaxation:)

Yesterday was my little Miss Channing's birthday party at the Jungle Jym. Cha Cha LOVES giraffes, so she wanted her Auntie to make her some giraffe cookies for her party.
I think they turned out quite adorable if I do say so myself.....so cute I had to name them....so I named them "Joy" because they were such a Joy to make:)
We had a great time with family and friends.....I think Ms. Paula had too much fun on the swings:) hahaha just kidding,.... I love her so!!! She cracks me up, and her and Ms. Beth are so wonderful and I'm so blessed they take such great care of my Cha Cha:)

HAPPY(belated) BIRTHDAY TO MY LITTLE "CHA CHA" :)
She LOVES Auntie's cupcakes, and her Auntie loves her so much:)
Diane asked me to make these vanilla & chocolate cupcakes to have at her house for Mother's Day.
She said EVERYONE loves my chocolate frosting, especially the "kiddos":)
Thanks Diane for always asking me to make "goodies" for you and your beautiful family:)
One of the " coolest" guys in town, Mr. Brad McGregor, asked me to help make his pal, Mark Morton, some OVER THE HILL cupcakes & cookies for his 40th birthday party. I told Brad I hated using black icing, because it tends to "bleed" into the cupcakes, which in turn, makes them look bad. So I thought of "CHROME" icing, since after 40, you start getting a little "chrome" color to your hair line:) And since Mark has always had a fond love of motorcycles, I made these little picks from some clip art, and hot glued them to toothpicks. I used sparkling silver sugar, and accented with red sanding sugar, and I think they turned out quite adorable:)
Thanks Brad:) I hope you all enjoyed these at the big party:)
Sweet Ms. Doris Stephens asked me several weeks ago to make these special treats for her classroom mothers at Eastside Elementary School.
Doris has a special Mother's Day Tea every year for her classroom mothers.
"MOM" Sugar Cookies & "MINI" Banana Cupcakes with Honey Cinnamon Frosting.....what a treat:)
Thanks Doris, I love you:)
