sprinkles on top

Sometimes crafts and sweets go hand-in-hand... okay, all the time.
Especially sweets with sprinkles on top.
Especially when I've had a rather... interesting... day.
Especially when you deserve a reward with out the guilt.
Especially when such sweets include pink frosting & a tea cup of milk.
Especially when you've got a long list ahead of you to check off.
Especially when you have someone to share them with.

A few hours later a conversation with this darling went like this:
"Eat your dinner please."
"I don't like this dinner momma... but, I do like pink cookies."

We are full steam ahead for Spark. Our teachers have designed really spark*y classes!
Here's a peak at the mini class I'll be teaching.
I adore the House of 3 banner tags & I used lots of fun Sassafras papers.
Which if you noticed in my last blog post I love their Indie Girl Collection.
Also, Shimmerz has some snazzy colors we'll be spritzing on our projects to make paper flowers and to add a little sparkle.

Spotted lots of Dear Lizzy Enchanted & Dear Lizzy Christmas at 2 peas as well.

All sweets are guilt-free when you're pregnant. You're eating for 2 and you don't have to worry about sucking in your stomach, cause its supposed to stick out!

In three days, I started and finished an entire bucket of Sweet Martha's cookies from our trip to the MN State Fair. When my husband opened the bucket to see only crumbs, I simply replied, "I'm pregnant and it's chocolate...what did you expect?!" ;)

Cracks me up...reminds me when my son (at 3) said, "Oh yes Mom, I am full...the dinner side of my tummy. But my dessert side is EMPTY!" He's 14 now.

Very Yummy! Those beautiful cookies are so mouthwatering. I like the color of it and the sprinkles on top is so attractive. My kids will love those cookies.

Auntie Em said...

We should all eat our dessert first, just in case something happens and we don't make it through the meal! :o)

Mollie said...

My cute little three year old just saw your pink frosted cookies and got all excited! She thought I was looking at a recipe for the cookies and we were going to make them. Guess I better get to work:)
