I Love My Computer....

This card I found over at Wickedly Wonderful Creations Blog says it all. How true this is!!

I have decided to take on the challenge of making my own Christmas Cards this year using Stampin' Up products, so of course I am reading all the blogs I can on cards, and today I saw this one and thought what a sweet card!
I am creating great friendships here...and have never met most of them. Arent computers fabulous!! I LOVE my computer...and all my new friends!! :)

Cake Pops

If you have not heard of cake pops...well then you have been living under the same rock as I have.
I always tend to run behind on trends, and I guess these were all the rage a couple years ago, ala Bakerella, who has a fabulous website.

I wanted to make some treats for my booth mates...(only a couple took some...hmm wonder if I will bake for them again!) :(

But my family and I sure enjoyed the left overs! I think my grandson ate the majority, they were just wonderful!! They are quite messy to make in the begining part, and I honestly think I will forgo the popsicle sticks next time. But it was a fun treat! I will be making more later this month for my co-workers....they at least enjoy my treats.

You start by baking your cake. Nothing fancy as you will be smushing it up to mix with a jar of premade frosting. Then you roll into balls...the messy part! We used Red Velvet cake and cream cheese frosting.

Then you put lollipop sticks in them...but I think I will skip this part next time and just make cake balls rather than cake pops.

Then you freeze for a couple hours, dip into chocolate to coat....and decorate as you wish! We used the candy melts to dip in, but I think next time I will melt chocolate chips down.

These are seriously yummy...and you cant eat just one!

Fun Fun Fairs!

This was a big weekend for us...for the first time we did 2 shows on the same weekend! I did one in Camp Verde, and The Hubs wanted to do one in another town over. How to do this...hmmmm....

Thank goodness for Friday night set ups. So we drove and unloaded me and got the tent up, then while I set up The Hubs went and set his location up.

We both worked our shows and thankfully stayed busy, but mine ended early and The Hubs was going strong...and he had the trailer.

So Baby Girl helped me tear down and somehow got us all packed up in my lil Escape. There was NO ROOM left. We were PACKED!!

I rode with a display rack on my lap, but it's all good.

It was better than waiting 3 hours for The Hubs. Only bad part was that I couldnt reach my purse to get money to buy us a much wanted Starbucks treat on the way home, good thing the cooler with water was between the seats. :)
