The joy of Sharing

Every year -since 2007 - I share a holiday tradition with fellow crafters, an ornament swap. Every year, I open 10 envelopes and explore the imagination and inspiration of these incredible artist... I tried to post every picture of my ornaments but sadly I did not found them, worst I don't know if I took any.. the only one I found was the very first I made...it was a pine cone angel which turn -in my humble opinion- OK! So I'm sharing with you.. hope you keep up your personal holiday traditions, Happy Holidays! 
I turned this.............................................

Celebrating Mother Earth

April 22nd is Earth Day, it's only a few short days away! This year We decided to get involved and pledge our commitment with Mother Earth, You can go ahead and make a pledge to... there's so much you can do: Reduce the use of paper, turn off the lights, recycle at home, plant a tree... it can sound quite redundant but every little thing you do, helps the planet! I found this beautiful printable by babalisme 

You can Download the pledge here

I also found this beautiful Earth Day poster by Mary Beth North to print click here

Happy Earth Day everyone!!!!!!

Buzzing around the Bee Baby Shower

Want a perfect theme for a Spring Baby? Bees! It can be so much fun. This is what we did: First we fall in love with this fondant bees by Mayen 

After 35 bees you may think this is not a good idea but trust me, it is!

We decided to grow Wheatgrass for the centerpieces - I also tried the juice... no comments!- Whole foods carry the seeds, I bought a pound and was enough for 6 centerpieces.
I know, super cute!

Then I found this beehive, I added some more bees and it was perfect!
Favors thanks to Burt's bees at Target
Note to self: Please make sure to designate a photo-helper in your Baby Shower and/or take the pics yourself, you may be very pregnant and about to pop and have nothing to do with pictures but... 4 to 5 months after the baby delivery when you finally have time to start the photo album ..... you are going regret no to do so!!!!!!  Love,

When litte Francesca was on her way, this lovely idea came up to welcome our baby girl. Birds, branches and nests were the inspiration for that pink-shower day!

It was my little monster's Birthday, and what better theme for a monster than Cookie Monster! I googled and googled and found some ideas... but then I searched on Etsy (I really don't know why I didn't searched there from the beginning ) and found these adorable printable party by Typewink

It was perfect, so, party on paper I grabbed my favorite scissors and .... CUT!!!
There's always room for Milk and Cookies...                                                       

Now, the cupcakes were super easy, cupcake+ frosting+ Oreo+ M&Ms= Blue heaven for a One year old!

We've been talking teeth this week , My little Niece lost her first front tooth yesterday, I found this Tooth fairy certificate.. it's Adorable!

So.. it become my inspiration for tooth cookies! Here's what I did:

I mixed white cake batter and poured in 3 different aluminum foil pans, about 2 cups, it was quicker than waiting for the pan to cool and be clean. Then I used my super cute Tooth Cookie cutter

Then I used Raspberry jam between layers...

And used White chocolate as frosting..

And Ta-Daaaa ....

Super cute Tooth Fairy cookies...
