Glittery Mask

Need a simple Halloween costume?  This glittery mask fit the bill for me last year.  With all the costumes I was making for the kids, I kind of forgot about figuring out a costume for me.

Animal cupcakes

Catching up on some my fun creations, I realized I did not have a chance to share the super cute animal cakes and the strawberry parfaits from last year.  I try to keep it simple for first birthday parties, but I always love to have celebratory dessert.  Although my daughter had her own smash cake, her first experience with real sweets.

Light and Creamy Almond Cream Cheese Frosting

For my friend’s 40th birthday, I wanted to create a sweet creation that was fun but leaned towards the adult side of dessert.

Elephant Halloween Costume- McCall's 6105 Pattern Review

I was thrilled to pieces when my youngest daughter was able to wear the elephant costume last Halloween.  This is the same costume I made for my son when he was 18 months old.

Harry Potter Costume

Our whole family has fallen in love with the Harry Potter series.  The books are something that we have enjoyed together as a family.  And after each book, we all (except our littlest of course) gather around the TV with bowls of popcorn and watch the movie.  As a family, we compare what was left out in the movie, and discuss how we pictured the scene or the character while reading as compared to how it was portrayed in the movie.  It has been a fun family activity- our immersion in the Wizarding World of Harry Potter.  So it was no surprised, that my son wanted to be Harry Potter for Halloween.
