Cupcakes, Watercolor, and Chicken Pot Pie

I think my word for 2009 was a perfect choice! I've never had a "resolution" that I've enjoyed so much and it's only been a week!!


(Thank you Janna for making my lovely reminder! You are the Queen of Creating! and an awesome friend!)



The other day Melissa mentioned that her sister had made a cupcake purse for her daughter's Christmas gift. I had to have one! She hooked me up with her amazingly talented Real Life friend Bridget, who has a tutorial on her blog. So, yesterday I made this cute confection for Bitt-E's birthday, especially to match her cupcake pinafore.
Oh yes, I have visions of more cupcakes in my future! I fully plan to perfect my technique - with a cherry on top!

Today I started teaching Watercolor lessons in exchange for piano lessons! Saaaaweetttt! I'm trading with my fabulous friend and neighbor, and of course all of my kids got to sit in on the Watercolor lesson too! Really a fun way to spend the afternoon - Creating Artists!!

Monday I made chicken pot pie, and since I don't usually do the pretty biscuit topping (I prefer a pie crust, but it just wasn't happening) I just had to take a picture to post with the reicpe on supercoolmomsrecipes.
Today I get to cap off this fun week by teaching Art in DD's class! We're making SNOWFLAKES! It's always nice to celebrate winter, even if we don't get to truly participate.
Oh yes, this is going to be a fun year!

No one knows how to create like the people at

Love your word. Love the idea of trading water color lessons for piano. Wonder if I could trade with some also. I also paint and draw. I recently started teaching my youngest how to draw animals. I teach him one a day.

SHUT UP! The cupcake purse is FAAAAABBULOUS! I'm a little obsessed with cupcakes - I call Ruby Jane my little cupcake because she's all soft and fluffy. lol Can't wait to see all of the new stuff you come up with.

That cupcake purse is so cute.

I wish I had a service/talent/business to trade services. Somehow I don't think this will go over very well...you teach my kids to play the piano and I'll get you a monthly supply of Percocet!
