My Guess - Shania Bag

Well well well.... here we are on the brink of a new year and all I can think about are handbags.  I got this Guess - Shania handbag a few months ago and still have not taken it out of my closet!  I love all my Guess handbags and although I do love this one, it's not what I would grab at first thought.  I like my bags like I like a lot of things in my life... BIG, BRIGHT, and SHINY.  I do love this bag and upon googling it to see if I got a good price on it I realized that I got a smoking deal on it!

Happy 60th Birthday Momma!

It's my mom's 60th birthday today.  Most people would agree that it's quite a milestone, and so I wanted to make her a cake that was elegant, classy, and feminine.

At first I didn't want to make "another" pink cake.  But white just didn't bring the pearls out.  And I don't like yellow for some reason on cakes.  Anyways, after dropping the top tier onto the bottom one and yelling an expletive word in front of my kids, I managed to fix it up as good as I could.  Oh BTW, I really hate those frosting sheets by cricut.  Useless in my opinion.  Could not cut one good image on them so instead I had to hand pipe everything!

Inside is mango icing with golden cake and pureed mango.  Outside is pink buttercream with sugar pearls and chocolate fondant accents.  I love you momma!  Happy 60th!

The Ruffle (Corkscrew) Scarf

So I rarely knit scarves.  Rarely!  that's because a lot of times I get bored before I finish so I just don't do them.  Sometimes they are just too much of a mindless knit for me.  But then I saw this wonderful pattern for a ruffle scarf and decided to make one.

Turned out great!  I definitely would try a lace pattern next time with some YOs to give it a bit more texture.  Overall I'm pretty happy with it.  Took longer than I thought, but don't all knitting projects do?
