Cream Puff Towers

Macaron towers are so last year, and croquembouches are so old school! I needed something modern for my dessert tables, and we can’t deny the elegance and fun of a good old macaron tower. To be honest, a macarons would’ve sufficed, but macarons and I have a history, and I do everything I can do stay away from them. It […]

Paper Flower Wall Backdrop

The paper flower wall was one of the most time consuming things that went towards this baby shower. We had 3 people working on them over the course of a couple of weeks, 6 people making them all day, and we even ended up making a couple more the night before.  But I wanted it – needed it. Bless my […]

$3 DIY Cake Stands

The countdown has begun! We are officially less than one month away from the baby shower, and almost two months away from meeting our baby girl. Guys, the excitement is getting real. We still have so much left to do, but as of now, I’m focusing on getting stuff done for the baby shower. No, I’m not throwing myself a […]

Newborn Bunny Hat Tutorial

Why is Cathy knitting baby hats? Am I missing something? Well I would say YES! I haven’t told you guys yet, but we are expecting a little girl this September!! Oh and Easter’s coming up, and bunny hats are adorable, so why not?  If you’ve been following on social media, we were visiting my family in Korea for the holidays. We were […]

Lip Balm Stocking Stuffers with Free Printable Labels

Lip balm is one of those items I have with me at ALL TIMES. I have a tube for my nightstand, my car, my work pants, etc. And for some reason, they always seem to disappear! I suspect my husband, but the situation is currently still under investigation. Plus, did you know that certain brands put something in their lip balm […]

QR Code Business Cards

When I tell people about my blog, I find myself getting anxious as I stand there while they say  “crafts and cake? craft and cake. craft and cakes…?” Then I follow with the whole “crafts is plural and cake is not” speech, which seems to be a little too much for most people to remember by the time they get to their computer. […]

Happy Sunday-funday! Hope you all had good, well rested, weekend. For those of you who follow me on social media, know that I was supposed to share with you a gluten free nutella recipe on The Ruby Kitchen this week. Well I ran into a couple of problems and decided to work on a different recipe for next week. For now, […]

Dog bed with bolsters

  Dog beds seem to be a monthly project around here. The last one I made Leo (the labrador), he decided it was better used as a pillow. So I gave that one to Comet (Australian shepherd) who had just ripped up his own bed. I made Leo a bed with bolster so he wouldn’t be sleeping on the floor. Sigh, […]

Homemade Soap

I walked into my first Lush store the other day, and I wanted to buy everything in the store. I’m sure you can relate. I finally narrowed it down to one soap I would take home, but then I got major sticker shock. $8 for a sliver of soap?? No thanks, I can make it myself! Well turns out, making soap […]

DIY Christmas Wreath

Tis the season! I actually have a ton of fall/holiday dessert recipes I want to share, but I just haven’t been in the mood to eat any of it. I felt like a holiday post was past due at this point, so we will be making our own wreath. This only took me less than one hour, and it was tons […]
