2012 Goals

I'm not a big fan of New Year's "Resolutions", so I make New Year's "Goals" instead.  This year, I have some personal goals and crafting goals, which I will update on here.
** Making cards instead of buying them MOST of the time (I would love to say that I want to make EVERY card I need, but I'm trying to be realistic here by not setting goals that are very difficult)
** finish my Israel scrapbook
** make at least 1 new project each week and post it here within 2 days of finishing
** get my cake decorating business running
** complete at least 1 crafting volunteer opportunity every month

Now my personal goals:
** get back on Weight Watchers and get back to my goal weight
** work out at least 3 times a week
** get accepted and begin nursing school
** run a 5K

Merry Christmas!!

Merry Christmas (a little late)! Happy Hanukkah! Happy New Year!! Here is the cake I made to take to Christmas dinner at my boyfriend's parents' house. I was not happy with it at all until it was finished.

Christmas for My Mom's Work

As I mentioned when I posted my pumpkin cupcakes, my mom works at an assisted living.  Every year around Christmas they have TONS of volunteer groups come in, so this year I made her some thank you cards so she doesn't have to send boring, plain ones from the dollar store.

Every year my mom also gives her boss and the head nurse a special gift.  She has always made chocolates, so last year her boss got a chocolate sleigh with cookies and peppermint bark, so this year I made her a cake that has a white tree on it. I used a sugar cone for the tree and cut the snowflakes on my Cricut Cake Mini.
The head nurse just started this spring, so we gave her a cake with a chocolate sleigh with peppermint bark on top.  These are each one layer chocolate and one layer of yellow.
