Soccer season always keeps us on our toes.  I love to see my boys out there on the field, giggling while they chase the ball.  But, I'm often equally excited for the busy Saturdays to be over.  For our final game, my son was assigned the snack.  I wanted it to be a little extra special for their farewell efforts.  This idea came to me while making pumpkin sugar cookies last week.

They're made out of round sugar cookies, butter cream frosting, and chocolate chips.  Bet you're wondering how the chocolate chips transformed into that.  Well, I stuck a handful in a ziplock bag for 30 seconds.  Smooshed them around and then another 30 seconds of microwaving.  Then I snipped off a little corner and piped it on.  I used a soccer ball clipart image to help me with the vision.

They're weren't perfect but looked pretty much like soccer balls, so I felt successful.  The little soccer players sure weren't complaining!

Flourishing Pumpkin

Introducing a new vinyl decal to my Piccadilly Line...

I'm in love with this little lovely and can't wait to try her out on a few different projects.  Meanwhile, she's available in my Etsy shop for all you creative cats.


Ribbon - my favorite

October is always a busy month for me and this one has definately been true to form.  I've seen soooo many cute halloween decor ideas this year but, who has the time for them all?  Yet, one idea jumped out at me from my PB kids catalog that even I had time to try. 

Mini Ribbon pumpkins:

All I needed was a bag of mini pumpkins from walmart.  My hot glue gun.  And some black ribbon from the stash.

I got so ribbon happy that I added some to a candle too. 

Both are now giving me something to smile about in the kitchen.
