1 Pound Butter (The real thing) Softened
1 Pkg Cream Cheese (You know the kind that comes in the silver box) Softened
2 Tsp Vanilla
2 Pounds Powdered Sugar
Fluff Butter and Cream Cheese and slowly add powdered sugar until you have about half of the Powdered Sugar then add Vanilla continue to mix on high and add rest of Powdered Sugar slowly until all is added and it is light and fluffly. Put into piping bag and pipe onto cupcakes or frost your cake or just eat by the spoonful!!!! Tonight I am putting mine on carrot cake cupcakes.
This is how it started with raw edges
I cut a bit of the lace folllowing the lace edging to curve it in and the used extra yard of lace that I got for this and for the cap that I am making next.
Gotta love me modeling it so that the bride can see what it looks like.
Now time to put it away until the bride can actually see it in person!!!

The cover of the Save the Date Book. Hard to believe that this used to be just pieces of cardboard! This is the first thing I have done with chipboard and find it amazing that we can get books bound or do it ourselves with a spiral notebook binding machine!!!
Each of these little flower petals are a min of 4 little hearts folded in half and glued together to make them appear as petals in these dasiy like flowers.
I then discovered using chalk to shade each petal. This made my darling husband shake his head once agian when he took me to hob lob to find chalk for shading I love it and think it created an amazing effect
There is a page for each month to enter those important people & dates in so you won't forget!!!

This is a family favorite that I typically double! They go quickly and are loved by all that have come to my house!
Peanut Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 Cup Salted Butter
1 Cup Crunchy Peanut Butter (you can use either I just like crunchy)
1 Cup Sugar
1 Cup Brown Sugar
1 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tsp Baking Powder
1 Tsp Baking Soda
2 1/2 Cups Flour
1 Bag Chocolate Chips
Preheat Oven to 375 bake 7 to 9 minutes
Cream with mixer butter, peanut butter, and sugar. Add eggs, vanilla, baking powder, and baking soda and blend with mixer. I hand mix the flour until blend until totally mixed add chocolate chips. I use a cookie scoop or you can roll into 1 inch balls.
I love to bake on baking parchement but that is up to you! Cool on cooling rack if you don't have a cooling rack a paper bag works great as well. Cool and enjoy!!!

A girl and work said I am gonna make 1 of 2 things for the potluck, The one that she didn't make was this pie but she told me how she made it. I had to come home and make it the very next day which is um well today. Getting hot outside this is perfect and simple and delicious!!!!
1/2 can of Frozen Concentrate Pink Lemonaide (you can use regular or limeaide as well)
1 Can of Condensed Sweetened Milk
1 Container of Cool Whipped Topping
Food Dye (appropriate color)
1 Pie Crust
Whip the frozen concentrate lemonaide and condensed sweetened milk, I used my whisk option on my mixer. When that is all fluffly looking add cool whipped topping and your red food coloring. I used a hand held whisk for this part. Then fold into pie crust & chill in the fridge.
Note: I doubled this recipe and made 2 pies
1 whole can of pink lemonaide frozend concentrate
2 cans condensed sweetened milk
1 large container of cool whip

Pomanders were the first thing I think I made! They were easy and gave us the pop of color that we needed!
The flower girl bucket rather then a basket It was awesome and got lost but it was simple galvanized steel.
The wish bowl tags that I made for everyone to fill out to share their wisdom and wishes for us!
I didn't do the cake ok I am not crazy! But the ribbons around the cake I placed each crystal with tweasers. The butterflies were not handmade. They were ordered but I had to reshape almost all of them so I got my hand in that to. They swirl around the cake. Loved this cake!!! As you can kinda see below!
All the prepration was worth it because now we are coming upon our 2 year anniversary!!! We have been through a crazy amount of stuff since then but it has all been worth it because when I look upon my husband I still feel the joy I do when I saw him the first time on May 15th, 2010.
