weekend fun

I finally got to go see the Chihuly installation we have been trying to go since October and I was so afraid it was going to be cold by December, but you know what they say about Texas weather....just wait and it will change. It was a lovely sunny day, the plants and flowers were beautiful and the sculptures were amazing, my favorite was this one. It was a really great way to celebrate my birthday, I want to find a documentary on Chihuly very soon!






Then I tried making clay ornaments a fun holiday craft idea provided by one of my favorite blogs.
The sculpey clay was hard to roll out but it was fun, I haven't decorated them yet with paint pens but it's a little more fancy than paper tags and it's not much more effort YAY!

I used some glitter and red clay on my candy cane  



Then I made some red velvet mini bundt cakes with Sprinkles mix. I am sending them to family, without my awesome cream cheese frosting but the cake is so excellent that I think they will still be pleased.


Now that my birthday is over I'm gearing up for Christmas. I think I am pretty much done shopping now I just have to start decorating :)

Floral Print Excitement

I'm not much of a girly girl but I am sucker for a floral print. Most of my favorite clothes have some kind of floral or abstract patter...
