My dear friend and neighbor, BethAnn, had a dream of making and selling her very cool cakes. When i say ‘very cool cakes’, you have no idea what I mean until you actually see some of her cakes. Here are a few teasers…
Yes, it’s a cake!!
Beautiful Pumpkin - Cake!
BethAnn was recently selected to be a finalist in Martha Stewart’s “Dreamers to Doers” contest, along with 10 other amazing women doing amazing things and living their dreams. Check out her story and the contest here:http://www.marthastewart.com/dreamers, and check out more photos of her beautiful cakes on her website: http://www.studiocake.com.
Speaking of semi-precious stones! My assistant, Heidy (who is awesome!) has been busy preparing all my new semi-precious stones to be available for add-ons to my necklaces and bracelets. I carefully h and -picked a stone or two that would represent each birth month. They are all different and will look great added to necklaces and bracelets. Here is a teaser of a Gr and ma necklace I just designed – it has a silver puffed heart, a garnet, a sapphire and a fresh water pearl – all hanging with a shiny disc with a heart cut-out, and the word Gr and ma stamped on it. This high-polish charm can have MOM or a name stamped on it too. So pretty!
I love this Mom necklace – it is really shiny (called high-polish) with a one point diamond embedded in the charm. It has a dressy look to it, but looks great with jeans and a t-shirt. I’ve been wearing it with four of my new semi-precious stones (that I am about to add to my site) and it is so pretty and dainty, with splashes of color from the stones. A great gift for any mom.
For those of you with little kids, here is something my kids just LOVE to watch – and sing and sing sing. I have no idea how we initially came across “The Hamster Dance”, but somehow we did and it has become a favorite hit in our house.
You watch the video on YouTube a few times and your whole family will be singing it non-stop for the next few weeks. Of course, you need to be extra careful when your kids are watching anything on YouTube, as the videos they may click on can turn very inappropriate in a matter of seconds!
An interesting note on the Hamster Dance song, it orginated from the beginning song in the original animated Robin Hood movie. There is a chicken that hums the song in the beginning of the movie. Somehow it morped into the craze of Hamster Dance. Have fun!
