About Me

My goal is to encourage more families to take the homeschooling plunge. It's a scary move but one you won't regret!

Upcoming CSN Stores Review

As a CSN Stores preferred blogger, I've been given the opportunity to review another great product from one of their 200+ online stores.  I love working with CSN Stores!  They have fantastic customer service and great products from tv tables to coffee makers.

For Christmas this year, my father in law asked for a Keurig.  Me, being a smarter shopper than that, found this great single cup coffee maker on CSN Stores that I have to get for him.  It's tons cheaper and so are the pods that it uses!  I can even get tea pods for my mother in law, who is a tea drinker!

CSN Stores offers free shipping on tons of different items so this holiday season, make sure you visit them for all your shopping needs!

Greg's Robots

Gregory is a robot lover so his mom asked for cupcakes with robots on top.  I just happen to have a Cricut cartridge with robots on it!  I made these little guys with gum paste and airbrushed the colors.  Greg loved them!

Polar Bear Birthday cake

This was a fun and special cake for me.  EllenRose is a very brave 11 year old cancer survivor.  She loves polar bears and this is the cake I made for her.  Each bear represents someone in her family, the bears on the top being herself (with the orange ribbon representing leukemia) and her mom and the bears on the board are her little sister Erin (who happens to be one of my son Max's favorite people!) and her dad.  The diving bear was a last minute addition.  EllenRose loved her cake so much that she wouldn't cut it for a few days and even took the bears off to save.  I LOVE it!  Happy Birthday sweet EllenRose!  Here's to many, many more!

Butterfly Cookies

Kaylee's Princess Cake

Everything on here is edible.  The crown was cut out with my Cricut Cake machine and I just layed it over my sifter to dry to give it shape.  I added the "rope" part of it with gum paste also and airbrushed it silver.  The ribbon roses and leaves are fondant and gum paste wand.

Go Giants!

I made the little helmets out of rice krispy treats and the face mask part is gum paste.

Bear Creek Sportsmen cake

The bear is made of rice krispy treats covered in modeling chocolate.
