Birthday Cake in a Jar!?!

Okay so after trying to figure out how to send someone* a cupcake thru the mail...and looking at all the deliciousness of Strawberry Lemonade combinations all over the Internet...I finally decided to make a lemon cake and a strawberry cake and layer them in a jar instead and ship it off...who knows if it will make it...who knows if it will taste yummy when it gets there...its is the thought that counts...but right now...these treats are super tasty and cute...the combination of cakes and lemon frosting in between a good one!

Since I had enough cake left over....I decided to make HUGE cake balls just for fun...and I know they are not perfect but they sure tasted good and the Neighbor said they were WAY better than Starbucks' cake balls and that just has to mean something right?!! Thanks Nice Neighbor!!

So...if its your Birthday today {*My Sister}....Happy Birthday!!!

Have a Great Day!!!

Happy Monday....

Monday! Oh how I love a Monday morning....I like it when everyone has to get up and go...summer is so hard when my little babies stay up late watching a movie and then sleep until noon or beyond....teenagers....glorious little teenagers!!

This weekend I made a little art journal or mini photo album {as they are sometimes called} to highlight our little day trip to Monterey and the beach. {Its already been claimed by my youngest Daughter}. When I was done I saw all the extra papers and decided to go ahead and make some blank minis to put in the shop! I'll have 3 available!

Here are the fun and funky pages inside the book....lots of different felt pages, cork board pages and envelopes and tags...I even did a little sewing for you on 5 of the pages!!

I didn't stop there....I added lots and lots of embellishments, some handmade like a yummy yo-yo and glitter button flowers, punched butterflies...oohhhhh yea!! Its all in the cool colors of summer....Yellow, Teal and Orange!!!

I love how all the pages are different and while looking at one page you can see other pages peeking out...

Here is one page in my little album....a jelly fish page...I finally used the cool little printer the Kids got me for Mother's Day and I heard a resounding "It's about time" throughout the house....guess I should have used it earlier!!!

So....What do you think? It's my first time making minis for the shop...and they were so fun...I'm going to make some more...the next one is going to be PINK!!

If you have an extra second I would love for you to "Like" my HappyLittleArt page on Facebook.....just click HERE!

I hope your Monday is Great!! Thanks for visiting!!

Flower Love....

I never find it hard to fall in love with flowers....whether fresh or handmade, they bring a smile to me. They can uplift my mood and change my day....Recently I've needed a flower or two.....fresh ones for my kitchen table and handmade ones to brighten an outfit or two.

You may remember me making these flowers here...oh how I loved them.....but this time I needed something brighter and I started making these...and couldn't stop...

So bright and fun....lots of least 10 and with adorable felt leaves...they become so many accessories...I think I'm going to put one on my bag...Love...Flower Love...I hope to have them in my shop by the end of the week.

I was invited to do a vendor fair this weekend...I would bring these flowers...but I just don't have enough other inventory to go....if I had been more busy around here...working, working, working...I would have...I have some excellent ideas for this particular fair...hopefully they will ask me back next year!!

What have you been doing this summer? Have you been busy?

Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers.....

Wednesday's Words!!!

I love this....we should all start our mornings like it...lets start tomorrow!!!

I've been cleaning my studio!! It feels so good!! Funny what a pair of new curtains can do to a room....its so much brighter in here than with the old curtains....I hung my banner up too....its starting to feel good and light and cheery in here again instead of its overrun, over crowded mess it had become!! Pretty fun!! My Girlfriend has been loving coming over and going through the bags I have been making for giving. I'm quite certain if I stacked my paper on top of itself it would reach over 6 foot tall...I've accumulated A Lot of stuff!! All good, happy stuff...but just too much of it.

I think I'll gather some things for a little giveaway too!! You'd like a little giveaway, wouldn't you??? I'll work on that!!

Hope your having a great summer so far with exciting things to do!!
