Happy I Love You Day! This is so simple...a great gift that can be used after the candy is gone! I found these adorable X & O cookie cutters at Michaels in a see through plastic box...filled them with gourmet jelly beans and some fancy chocolates all from Whole Foods, slid them carefully back in their box. Sweets and cookie cutters for the ones you love!

I LOVE the way this came out! I made it for my living room which is currently teal colored and I can't hang it up quite yet till I repaint the space aaaaaargh, hopefully soon. The good news is that you can turn many frames into floating frames by simply replacing the back of the frame with a piece of glass or plexiglass. I found this stand alone glass in several standard pre-cut sizes at Aaron Brothers. The opening was a standard 18' x 24 " on this Black Nantucket style frame so it was easy to replace. I would recommend taking apart the frame first. Spray paint it and let it dry while you paint the letters. The letters and frame will require a few layers of paint. After the frame dries, pre-drill holes where the brackets will be to hold the glass in. You can secure the letters to the back glass or plexi with glue dots or thin double stick tape and frame!!! you will have to instal another hanging bracket to the back of frame if it was on the backing you removed otherwise you are ready to hang and enjoy! Can't wait to hang mine...stay tuned for living room make-over. Happy Crafting!

I had to make 36 cupcakes for my son's birthday for his class. Adding these chocolate figures was a quick and simple way to create the lego theme. I wanted colors that would make him happy but also appeal to the girls. I used Duncan Hines dark chocolate and white cake mix. Pilsbury made this gorgeous Aqua Blue frosting . I made the green from Pilsbury Classic white frosting by adding mostly green gel dye with a touch of yellow to make it more of a lyme hue. I wanted to make them from scratch but I started 10pm and I know these products are super yummy! I'm loving the soft flexible molds I used for the figures and blocks...you can buy them from the Amazon link below. HAPPY BAKING!
I like to call this my healthy dessert! It truly satisfies the sweet-tooth and is good for you.
