The trends for less

I love things J Crew, but, I am not crazy about their prices.  It's just way out of the league for this stay at home mom, besides, I just can't see a reason to spend that much money on clothes.

I do like nice things but have found that you can find just about anything for less.  I do a lot of shopping at TJ Maxx, Target, H&M, Old Navy.  I occasionally hit Ann Taylor Loft and Anthropologie.  Anthropologie being a favorite right up there with J Crew.

I found this outfit on J that is so in right now.  A classic pencil skirt and stripe top.  Who doesn't have that in there closet right?   Well if not, here is a look to get inspiration from and then go shopping some where else.

I found some great pieces at Ann Taylor Loft that I love.

Sweet Vignette

I love this little vignette outside of my daughters room.

I found these sweet heart lights in the "dollar" bins at Target.  There was only one set and they were $3 but I had to have them.  I love how they illuminate so sweetly just outside her door.  You can't tell but they illuminate a pink light and I just LOVE them.  So simple and sweet.   I wish you could see it, the picture just doesn't do it justice.

Valentines is her favorite holiday so I love how perfect they are for valentines day.  I might just have to keep them up year round though.

Just pretty.

Creative baking

While I took a break from blogging I got busier with my baking business.

I love being able to work from home especially doing something creative.  This little idea has been such a great one.  I get to feed my creative side while being able to be the mom that I want to be.

I made some beautiful cakes and cookies and some fun ones.

The most recent were these Police Academy Graduation cookies I made for a customer yesterday.

I thought they turned out really cute.

I thought I'd share a few other things that I have done recently

These lovely hearts were for a "pink" party.

I love daisies and this was fun to do.  I made this for a 50th surprise luncheon.

I love how simple and sweet this two year olds birthday cake turned out.

I saw these on Pinterest and thought they would be fun to recreate.

These almost look like real lollipops.  These were for a candy land themed party.

I really loved how these paint palette cookies turned out. 

I made these cookies during Christmas time along with a lot of other cookies.  I couldn't believe it when I counted the angels that there were 26.  This was just a few days after the tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary school.  Twenty Six Angels for twenty six lives lost.

A busy Christmas season.  This was just two orders.

Love this sweet kitty cat cake for a "little" that was turning five and loves cats.

I am so lucky that I get to do what I love.
