Excuses and a Feature


Hey everyone! Although I wish I had a fabulous DIY post to share with you today, I have reverted back to my old ways of starting something then starting something else before finishing said first something … grrr. Right now I am in the middle of about a million projects (at least that’s what it feels like!), and am really trying to wrap a few things up.

In my defense, I have had a numb right arm (finding out through talking with my mom that we have an annoying genetic issue (pressure palsy) that causes numbness in the arms and fingers and can last for months), so I had to halt progress for a bit while my arm healed. Things like sanding and painting were pretty much impossible for a couple weeks, but I’m glad to say it’s feeling a lot better and am back in business!

On a totally different note, I was so so excited to see that a couple of my cakes were featured along with 14 others at Disney Spoonful by Steph at Somewhat Simple. How awesome is that?!? I submitted both my Princess and Baseball Diamond cakes and they were both chosen! Lately I have been slacking in the cake department and not feeling the excitement that I usually do so this is just what I needed to get me motivated again!

And last but not least, it is FINALLY warming up around here! It’s supposed to be in the 70’s this weekend (WOOT WOOT!!!) and I can. not. wait. to get working in the yard! We have done a bit here and there in between rainy and cold days but I’m ready to get my hands dirty and get some things under control!


Have a great weekend and enjoy the sunshine!






  1. How awesome you were featured! Those cakes are awesome girl! Hang in there and you take care of yourself!!!

  2. Thanks Shelly! The cakes are fun and mostly I just do them because they put a smile on my kids face and I would love to learn how the pros do it one day!
