GUILT FREE VALENTINE'S CAKE

Sorry I haven't really posted this week.  I promise I am not on some super duper vacation somewhere, I really am crafting up a storm right here at home.  I will share all that I have been up to sometime in the near future, but for now I thought I could at the very least give you a little taste (hahaha).

So are you ready to set your eyes on the first fat free, calorie free, guilt free Valentine's Day cake you will ever see.


These are her humble beginnings.



She started life as three discarded hat boxes, that had worn out their welcome years ago.  All they needed was a little love, paint, ribbons, and half a gallon of glitter.  Isn't it amazing what some love and bling can do for a girls confidence level.  I think she is too sweet ( the kind that doesn't disturb my hips), and she will be sticking around for the next few months.  I have many great plans for her and you will just have to stick around to see how she continues to show up.  Now if you will excuse me, I have a 1/4 of a gallon of glitter to vaccum up (you really don't want to know).


Sit Relax and Read

P.S.  Don't tell my youngest daughter but I went shopping in her personal stash of fake flowers for the top, hopefully she will think this make a good temporary home for them!!!!!!

I LOVE this, you are right! Glitter is wonderful! (except for when a piece of it is stuck to your face for like three weeks and no matter what you do it won't come off...)

Thanks so much for joining the party! Hope to see you next week too!

cha cha! my twin {almost} :)

you better post that pillow! i would love to see it. everyone is doing fluffy stuff. i have {somewhat} of fluffy pillows to post this week as well. if i can ever get my bedroom in somewhat of a decent order to photograph. our bdrm is always the last thing for clean-up, decorate, organize -etc. i guess it is that way in all homes. hopefully i will improve this year, however. so you will think i'm the copycat whenever i can get to a post!

so see we must be twins that were seperated!!!

have a super week! my dear firend!
