National DIY Day

Happy Easter Weekend!!

 

One week from today will be a day for all of the crafty lovers nationwide.  I am so excited to tell you all about the first National DIY Day.  I am partnering with Craft Box Girls to help launch the first DIY Day.  There is a national day for everything you can think of from pound cake day to wine day.  So, the team at Craft Box Girls decided to day a national day for all of the craft lovers.

The mission of National DIY Day is to create a movement that brings people of all ages, races, and demographics together to inspire one another and encourage through hand crafting.

Making things and crafting can be so much fun and help you express your style!  Happiness is Homemade!!

I will be helping host the event here in Birmingham, AL on April 02, 2016 at Neighborhood Barre 1pm-4pm.  This family friendly event is free and is for all ages.  I hope you join us for this wonderful event!!  Happy Crafting!

Hello! I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Can you believe St. Patrick’s Day is Thursday?  Are you looking for something green to make?  I have the perfect recipe for you! This Key Lime Cake will be the perfect touch to your going green day on Thursday!

This Key Lime Cake recipe will be a repeat request with family and friends. It is very flavorful and moist.  It is also a great cake for so many holidays because of the beautiful bright green color.  I have made it for Christmas using a Christmas tree cake pan which is super cute and festive.  I have also remixed the cake and will share those recipes on the blog as well.  I hope you enjoy!
