PI&DI - Scarf Hanger

One thing I love is organization...those closest to me might not believe it but, it's true!  I've recently acquired a fondness for scarves as well.

While on Pinterest one day I found this...what an awesome idea!

I had all of the supplies on hand so for me, this solution was FREE!!  Who doesn't love a free project?

All you need is a hanger and some shower curtain rings...

Here's how I did it...


Decorating a Barbie Cake

Now that we have our Barbie cake form made and ready, let's get to decorating! 

I used pink icing (of course) for my cakes.  I used three different tips.  Each cake took me about half an hour to decorate. 

No, I'm not kidding...it's that easy!

Here's how I did it...


Barbie Birthday Cake

As I promised, here is the tutorial for making a Barbie cake.  I made these cakes for birthdays.  However, you can use them for anything.  I had a Barbie cake for my 4th birthday (just a few years ago) and I LOVED that cake.  I still remember it...take a look at that beauty...

I was so impressed with that cake and no other every compared.  For my bridal shower my mom, sisters and best friend got me a Barbie cake and it was SO perfect!  They bought it from Publix and when they told me the price my usual response came out "I could make that for less!"


Jan. Goal - Check and Check!

I shared with you my goals for each month.  My goal for January was to make a Barbie Birthday Cake.  I am elated to report that I not only have reached my goal but also have EXCEEDED my goal!  What a great way to start off the year!

I've made two Barbie birthday cakes so far and it's only the middle of the month!  I am so happy with how the both of them turned out and can't wait to show you more pictures!

For now you will just have to wait anxiously for the tutorial (still working on that) and drool over my little teaser photo to the left!

PI&DI - Simple Shredded Chicken

I have another 'pinned it and did it' story for you!  This one I just couldn't wait to share!  I saw on Pinterest a little while back that you could shred chicken in a Kitchenaid mixer.  I was QUITE skeptical.

However, my womderful hubby spoiled me and bought me a Kitchen aid mixer for Christmas (in the color Pistachio, none the less)!  I had forgotten about the shredded chicken trick until tonight.  The hubby works late on Saturdays and decided he wanted to make chicken quesadilias when he got home this evening.  My job was to cook the chick and cut it up.

I accepted my mission an started cooking the chicken when all of a sudden...DING (that is the light bulb over my head going off)!


12 New Years Resolutions

Whew!  It's been quite a while since Ive written a post.  We've been quite busy here for the past few months.  My husband came home from being gong for six months with the military, we both started new jobs, we briefly attempted to buy a house, we got a new puppy, and then oh yeah, the holidays!  This is the first weekend in over a month that we have actually been at home.

I've missed crafting and baking and creating and writing so much.  I've decided to set myself some goals this year, some new years resolutions if you will.  I've set a goal of at lease one thing that I want to complete each month.
