A Birthday Cake for Daddy

James had his birthday on Monday. He mentioned to his brother that he would likely not get a cake for his birthday. Juliana and I had other plans!! She took a sugar cookie mix and made it in her Easy Bake Oven! Then she made icing, decorated it, and helped me find candles to suit the occasion! She even made some beeswax candles for the occasion!

How proud she was to present a very personal cake to her daddy for his birthday! Happy Birthday James!!

We have finally had some lovely warm weather! Here is a page to suit these final remaining lazy days of summer!! I am having a garage sale tomorrow (Friday) and Saturday (Feb 20, 21, 9:30 to 4:00), here at my place with some friends. I made some of my older calendar pages into kits - this one is similar to some that will be in the sale! Email me at for directions.

Take care and have a great day!!

Summer Fun

Juliana and I had some fun making cards the other day! These two are some I came up with, using the "Build A Bear" Sizzix diecut form Stampin' Up! It is so fun to create bears - I get a different one each time!

Juliana created these two bears - she was excited to use four shirts with four pants for the boy, and four shirts with four skirts for the lady. Some glitter and gems completed the ensemble!  She was able to use hers right away, and sent them to her uncle and Oma in Ontario!

Here's Juliana with Mojo.  Mojo is enjoying her new summer 'do' after a visit to the hair trimmer.  Her coat is as soft as velvet, and a beautiful shade of grey-brown!  She is a lovely dog.

The kids all love her so much! JJ loves to cuddle with her too!  Mojo has really enriched our lives!

Take care, and have a great day!
